4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

I had stayed in Hotel Sivapriya in 2002 (with family) as well as 2008 (with family and friends). Last time when we visited Kodai, my friends had reserved another hotel. But we were late and by the time we reached there in the wee hours, those guys had cancelled our reservation :) (We were driving from Trivandrum and could reach only by 4.00 AM due to heavy fog.) So, started looking for other options near the lake and came across this hotel. It is a pretty big hotel, with ample parking space. The front desk guy was very prompt, professional and helpful - and we checked in the hotel in no time.

The rooms were decently priced, they were spacious and the bathrooms were neat. Basically, whatever facilities we expect from a decent budget hotel - was there in the offing. It is just 5 min walk from the famous Kodai Lake, and it is the hub of the Kodai.

The restaurant is a decent one, and the food is tasty. They serve North as well as South dishes. There were not many restaurant choices outside the hotel, so in case you are planning to try out something different, better to go near the lake and try out the options.

Overall, the hotel is a good value for money. If you've your own private vechicle, then it is a breeze to visit the nearby attractions. Else, the travel desk will arrange conveyance for you.

Had a comfortable 3 days stay, good service and cleanliness maintained. food was also good. The sight seeing spots are all reachable from the hotel. Near the lake. View from the room was good, so could enjoy the mist and rains.

Nicely located and hotel is clean. Its pure vegetarian, so a disappointment for non vegies. Went for lunch and its a buffet (99/-) worth every penny as its yummy. Breakfast too they have buffet but will accept separate order.

there were 2 kinds of rooms . though it appears like an old hotel they maintain the room very neat and clean. no complaints. their pure veg restaurant is good.the rooms at higher levels are costlier. their offseason tariff is reasonable but season rates are exorbitant.

Room Tip: there are two rows of rooms on along the front and the other on the rear. the rear rooms have view o...

I selected Hotel Sivapriya after a long research and review. I found the hotel room very decent and clean. The food was tasty. The room service was really very quick & good. Also they have a travel desk (Parveen Travels) and they arranged car for me in minutes on two days.
Overall I would recommend this hotel for good/decent room & service. Breakfast is good with
S.Indian menu. Only drawback is you need to catch taxi to reach main road (~ 1km) or if you plan to have food outside hotel.
