I went to Kofaikanal with my family from July 6-9.The stay was awesome.No words to say.It is located away from the mains,which is the greatest plus point.With freezing climate,it was a wonderful time.Food was simply the best as they prepare for whatever we ask.A must place to stay!!!

Stay at Dale Thorpe was a nice experience. Hospitality from its owner was very good. It has very good accessibility to the major attractions of Kodai. Though it doesn't have a restaurant, they will provide food on request from their kitchen. The food was superb. They have also arranged Bonfire for us with Barbecue.Lavish parking and play area. My choice... More
