Location Adjacent to Coakers Walk. Food Food was OK! Restaurant people were friendly and helpful! View No view or privacy if you are staying in standard rooms. Choose valley view rooms if possible. If not, there is no point staying at this place! Cleanliness Not that clean. In fact, they cleaned our rooms just after we checked in.

Booked via cleartrip , all things went smooth . Hotel was good , food was up to the mark. My point of pleasure was hot water any time ! Dining place of this hotel has a good view .Room size was a bit small, thought that does not matter for a couple.

Villa Retreat finds its place right at the heart of Kodaikanal not just for its fantastic location, but also for the experience they give us. Polite and hospitable staff (Dina and team), Great food (you must try their chicken cutlets), Good service and Excellent view from the hotel make it a delight to stay at Villa Retreat. Like many others... More

The rooms are neat and clean. Adjacent to the entrance of Coaker's Walk from Bryant Park backside. Strategic location, very near to all highlights of Kodaikanal like Coaker's walk, Lake, Bryant Park, bus station / shopping attractions. The inside restaurant is small and prepares food only on order, but serves quality food, better than most of other outside restaurants. Room... More
