Hot water system is a total mess. I had to wait for 2 hours to get hot water and had to keep calling reception and finally manager. This was at night 11'o clock after an 8 hour journey with a small baby. They keep turning it off assuming no one is using it
Room service can take more than an hour to deliver a simple lime juice
Hotel location is filthy
Food was served cold and same breakfast menu on all days.
Some food items served were raw and cornflakes were soggy and old (not crispy at all).

Our stay at this hotel was a very pleasant one. The room was a Apple Triple Deluxe. It was in the basement. The large windows (one can easily walk through the windows) of the room allowed enough natural light into the room to not make it feel like a dungeon. The location of the room was the only negative part of the stay. The room however was very spacious and had more than enough room to allow us to put in an extra mattress and not make it feel congested. The bed was comfortable and the linen was clean. The toilet was large and clean (i am sure very important to most people). The towels provided were also very clean and replaced daily.

The buffet breakfast was simple and wholesome with the standard fare of south Indian breakfast dishes with the addition of boiled eggs and dosa's to order.

We had one lunch during our stay and it was OK, however they should look at improving the time it takes to serve the food after placing the order. In our case, 4 biryani's took about 40 mins though only 2 other tables were occupied.

The room service is very efficient and hotel staff are very courteous and helpful. The travel desk proved to be very helpful in giving us the needed information and also provided us with a guide to take us around the local attractions. Please note that this is chargeable.

All in all a very good and pleasant holiday stay at Hotel Apple Valley. Will surely stay there if and when we are back in Kodai.

It was an excellent stay. Neat and clean rooms, five star service in a 3 star hotel, good central location and very good food. Very courteous staff. Even the room service was very prompt. One must consider this hotel if planning for Kodaikanal.

i stayed for 2 days with family. The room was at basement,hence dark but quiet spacious. the back balcony opens in a street with bad view.the breakfast was really good and food was ok. it is located in middle of town downhill about 1-2 km from lake.

Room Tip: do not take rooms in basement,all deluxe rooms are there.

Rooms are very neat and been maintained very well, Team seems to be ever ready to serve with a smile, Rasheed-General Manager has a wonderful set of team and he would be an asset to the organisation.

Food quality has to improve a bit, other wise location is awesome and economical.

Room Tip: Ideal choice for any traveler

The hotel is very conveniently located (7 minutes walk from the bus-stand). The rooms are spacious and the staff -members are very courteous and always ready to help. The breakfast was good, but there were not much options for continental. The hotel staff helped me for an early check-in. However, for a a late check-out (I check out at 6 PM), I had to pay the room rent for an entire day.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd floor are better compared to rest of the rooms
