Located centrally and you can visit many places by walk from the hotel. Good hospitable and courteous people. The food was good, rooms were neat and view from the room was excellent. Enjoyed our stay.

Having stayed in Europe and the U.S, we wanted to have a quiet and economical holiday in a cool place. What best but to head for Kodaikanal...Villa Retreat. Booking was a breeze and equally check-in too. We were given probably one of the best rooms overseeing the valley with a fireplace. After quick freshup, we were served hot tea with... More

We had stayed here in the first week of May, the booking experience was a little troublesome since their website is not all that great but it was enough. We checked into the Valley View Room which was as promised. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. They help you out with sightseeing and places you can see. The South... More

We booked this hotel after reviewing many hotels in various travel sites, as we wanted our holidays to be just petfect without any glitches. We found this hotel to be on the expensive side, but still we went ahead and booked Signature suite with Valley view. We were bit nervous how our selection would turn out to be. We got... More

It was indeed a great experience. Quiet rooms and ambience of the hotel is superb. Coaker's walk, Bryant Park and lake are just adjacent and those spots are the main attractions of Kodaikanal, Food in the restaurant was less spicy but enjoyable. The staff are well mannered and very cooperative. The staff namely Joseph, Reeta, Remington, Peter were so nice.... More

The room in which I stayed was very nice. Fireplace and a bit of a view, plus a nice bathroom with a walled-in enclosure. Someone in our party was in another room without a walled-in shower and with little decor, so requesting one of the fireplace rooms might be beneficial. The service was excellent. They called every afternoon asking if... More

Very pleasant stay. The hotel restaurant was simply fabulous though the food did take a long time to arrive. But we didn't mind the wait as it was prepared fresh and tasted beyond amazing. A slight con is that we got very frequent calls asking how the stay is and whether we want breakfast, lunch, dinner etc which we felt... More

Villa Retreat was our base for a short getaway a month or so back when I visited the place with my mother and my son. What struck me as soon as I entered the charming place was how well it was maintained. An abode of an English family in the pre-Independence era, it has retained much of its colonial household...

We stayed here for four days in a 2-bedroom suite. The room was spacious with a fire place (have to pay to keep the fire place on!). The hotel is right next to Coaker's walk and very close to the bus stand. The breakfast for up to rupees 200 per person was included in the rent. The beds were comfortable... More
