“Value for Money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

I stayed in this hotel in Oct. It was quite cold. It was raining outside but hotel has clean and comfortable and nice place to stay. You can walk to the Kodai Lake. Overall we had good experience with this hotel.

This hotel is the best in kodaikanal for budget travellers. I have stayed here in 2002,2007 and last in 2010,was really wonderful. This holiday season I found no room available,so have to shift to a nearby hotel. Superb hotel,good and neat rooms,good vegetarian food,overall good value for money.

I had been in this hotel in Aug, 2012 and got at a very decent price. This hotel is situated just 5 min walk from the famous Kodai Lake and its the hub of the Kodai. The staff are very nicely behaved and responded well to the quires. The room is pretty nice with well maintained bathroom and bed. The view from the room is superb. I stayed at room no 502.

The food at the restaurant is tasty and they server North as well as South dish. Please try the tandoori nan over there. The best part is they will give a call to you of the food.

The travel desk is very helpful and they arrange tour and cab at reasonable prices. Thanks to Mr Pattnaik for his help.

Over all it was a good experience for me and I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The hotel staff gives you a warm welcome, the rooms are good and neat, the view from the balcony is ok, the staff is very good, but its a vegetarian hotel, and the food serving timings are terrible. If you want to eat anything from 1530 to 1700hrs, the only thing you get is the toast which is half toasted. Food taste isn't great, could have been better.

Room Tip: Better look for some other hotel. Sivapriya not a good option.

Rooms are good . excellent parking area. housekeeping is good .
But food is horrible. In night they donot have any choice and i think they recommend only
frozen foods which they cook and serve. Because all the sidedishes for naan or roti tastes same only. Morning breakfast is okay. But afternoon lunch which tehy call buffet is limited with two pooris and unlimited tasteless sambar and other gravy which is horrible. Only one vegetable and it tasted like saw dust. Better avoid food during lunch and dinner.Bed is very hard and getting backpain.I hve stayed here from july 19th to 22nd july. weather is excellent

Room Tip: ask for a parking facing room

it's my 4th visit to kodai and 2nd stay at sivapriya. I recently had a chance to visit kodai on off sesson time (23 to 25th June) and rooms were very much available to due to off season. One thing you cannot get out side is tasty tounge tickling food and very dood service from staff.

All the staffs don't look for tips and work and they are very dedicated and kind. travel desk is much helpful and it's kind of hotel where you can just drop and they will take care of everything like food, site seeing, etc....

Apart it does not have a breath taking view as it's in the middle of the town but not noisy.

It all comes in reasobale tariff and you can give it a try

The hotel is located in the center of the city and close to all the places. The lake is less than 5 min walk which is very nice. The food served is good and tasty. The rooms & bath rooms are clean and kept tidy. You can call them and book them, no need for an agent. Just one tip there dont go down for restaurant, order from your room., saves time and quality of service. As for site seeing call the cabbie Jawahar (+91 97150 03337) He is very nice, humble and an excellent driver.He knows in and around the place, and can guide you to good restaurants too. In the end all i can say is this hotel is your best deal for comfort food and nice stay.
