We spent one night at the property.
The rooms are spacious but not clean - saw dirt and dust in the room, dead flies on the bed on check-in, lights not working.
The front desk staff was not helpful, especially the manager.

Positives about the property are the green gardens, a small birds zoo and a temple inside the hotel complex.

The location is not too good, and the approach is bad.

Probably a place to stay if there is no other choice available.
The rates are expensive compared to location, services and facilities. Absolutely no value for money.

Excellent but bit expensive. Excellent customer service and friendly staff. Excellent new year celebrations enjoyed the stay. I would suggest this hotel if you are looking for excellent holiday.
I stayed here for 3 days and food and garden in the hotel is excellent.

We were there for 4 days and 3 nights. We tried for other places but could not find a place with lawn and play area or room availability. Below are the positives and negatives WE felt.

Positives:

Lawn, Play area and pets (birds, emu, finches, love birds etc)

Negatives:

Room rates are very high, but the rooms are of very normal way. Breakfast (comes as part of the tariff) was very normal too. Some items were bad as well.

Sleep quality was at the worst, sometimes rooms gets warm and sometimes cold (without opening the windows/doors).

Bathroom/Toilet--most pathetic with improper ventilation. Every time we had to call the room service and wait until they come and spray the freshener.

Road from main road to the hotel-pathetic with full of dangerous bumps. Small cars can get easy damage.

Room service and restaurant service people were not friendly but on the day of check out they became friendly :-)

Not a good place to stay or try in Kodai, minimum tariff 5.5K per day is also a killer for this place.

My stay in this hotel was for 2 nights , we had a friends get-together in this property and i wish to say that it was more than what we expected . Be it food , entertainment , sports activity -snooker table -table tennis -cricket net -mini golf course , garden , mini-zoo , waterfall , This hotel is suitable for all . once inside the property one does need to go out for any entertainment or so ..My special appreciation for the food the restaurant offers . worth .......the ...tariff......

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the garden......

- Situated at the entrance of Kodai, we stayed with family for 2 nights
- Big rooms
- Beautiful garden and mini golf course
- waterfall can be viewed from the garden
- Garden has play area for children and also Emu (Giant bird) is a lovely attraction
- Also has host of indoor games
- Spa & beauty parlour also available
- Restaurant is great
- Breakfast was awesome, both south Indian and continental breakfast available.

Prices slightly on the upper side but worth every penny. Our stay was very pleasant and if you have a budget of 5k/night this is awesome place to stay

Room Tip: Choose rooms towards golf course if you are with family they are bigger.
