They have two suites in the main building, two deluxe... More

Being old hands in Kodai (We used to stay in Vattakanal in a house on lease) we were looking for a place that is laid back, with spacious rooms and large verandahs. Dale Thorpe made up for all except they have an indoor parlour (that can easily seat 20 people) instead of a verandah. But what blew us away was... More

The view from the window of the standard room was the clothesline of the staff who live in the... More

Dalethorpe is a great place to stay in a crowded and busy tourist town. Sharif, his wife and staff go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need, and some things you don't. The food was excellent! We loved the four days and three nights we spent in the Deluxe rooms there; got in the odd game... More
