The resort is looks good and the ambience is also good. But Food was not up to the mark as compare to the price. Food is very costly. It is better have lunch and dinner outside. Room is also not good as compare to the price. For enjoying any amenitie you have to pay. Too expensive.

Room Tip: Avoid Delux Room

It was a wonderful place to unwind. We enjoyed the resort. It was so relaxing and the service has been fabulous. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The quality and taste of the food is awesome. Buffet dinner had descent spread. The hotel is slightly over priced but seems to be okay for the level of service and maintenance they do.

The lawns are neatly maintained and is a pleasure to sit in the balcony and watch it. They have a minimal outdoor and indoor kids play area. Which needs some attention. Travel desk has been prompt.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms with Valley view. I got the room at 1st floor.

The resort is looks good and the ambience is very good. My 4 year old son enjoyed running around the resort and playing in the small play area they have. The staff is also quite courteous. But I felt that it somewhere lacks the class for the money we pay. The rooms were definitely not worth the money. For the deluxe room I booked, the room was neat and clean but bit cramped. The dinner buffet was average, but the price you pay for that is overwhelming!

The location was excellent..
The lawn and the resort was maintained very well.. It was so great.... Enjoyed the view.. Place was clean...
Still there were few things which I felt can be done from the management side..
Inspect on the furniture and equipments provided in the room...
TV plug had an issue and it was not solved completely till we check out even after a fix... Not sure either is it not fixed properly or issue with the TV itself
Provide some air fresheners in the bathroom and bedroom
One litre drinking water bottle can be provided as a complimentary..
Sofas were not at all comfortable.. Please replace it..
A TV can be provided inside bedroom also...
Food quality can be improved with regard to the taste... Didn't meet the expectation..
Dining hall/restaurant was too small.. We have to wait on queue for breakfast till the person leaves the table... It was so embrassing position when somebody is looking for you to vacate the place..Breakfast Buffet varieties were good.

Stayed with my family for two nights at Hill Country, Kodaikanal end of March 2014. Very well maintained resort. A little away from the lake or the centre of Kodaikanal. Can be a plus for some, a minus for some. Cannot expect any great valley views because of the location. Chose to have food outside apart from complimentary breakfast as we felt it was expensive. Our cottage was very neat and well furnished. Overall had a pleasant experience at the resort.

This was the worst experience that we have had as members of Club Mahindra. Hill Country is an affiliate resort that has some rooms set aside for Club Mahindra members. We had booked a studio. The room overlooked a hill that was being used to dump old playground items....very disappointing. We were told that this was part of the rooms put aside for us members.
This is an extremely basic resort that does not match up to the others run by Club Mahindra. The linen used in this resort is very old and tired...the towels are threadbare in places. Very expensive food of average quality.
No signs are posted anywhere in Kodai, it is thus a complete adventure just finding the place! The staff is very nice and courteous but the resort disappoints overall.

Room Tip: The studios for Club Mahindra members are very disappointing.
