“Luxury Hotel at budget price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2009

I had a pleasant vacation with my family at J.C. residency, Kodaikanal. We stayed in a Royal Suite for 3 days On request, they had arranged for a pick up from kodai railway station. Driver was very nice and stopped on all tourist attarctions on the way. Staffs were very professional, helpful and service was good. Room was spacious and cozy. I enjoyed the local sigt seeing, Night safari, trip to Berjaim lake. We were lucky to sight 30-40 bison's during night safari. They have a nice little garden with few birds.They provide very good vehicles (Indigo/Qualis etc) at competitive price. Food and ambiance was good in the restaurant.
Don't miss the trip to Berjaim. Lake in itself is nothing spectacular, but the views are just awesome on the way (caps valley, silent valley etc). It's in a protected area and you will need get a permit to visit the place. Hotel will arrange for the trip if told a day in advance.
Few things that I didn't like:
View from the room was ordinary.
Hotel is located slightly away from city center, though you can get cab for 60 rupees.

Great place to stay with very good service.
It was clean and all the common areas ( lobbies etc) were well maintained.

The price is also attractive.

I had been here on Jul-2008. I did not find this place to be that great. The rooms were good and cozy but thatz where the positives end. On the down side, I found the bathrooms were not that clean especially considering the fact that I was staying in one of the most expensive room. Floor was made of wood but not clean again :(. I checked out the next day and found a lot of other hotels that were new and much more cleaner/cheaper. This place is definitely not worth its cost.
