Hotel is located in the heart of the city, adjacent to coakers walk. Built up in open area, carries a beautiful valley view. Staff is nice and helpful. Although it can be made better in terms of fooding.

The location was very near to all the main scenic places as well as the market, and yes there was Wifi, the cherry on top of the ice cream. Make it a point to go to this place.

This is the only hotel with the best view in the town of KodaiKanal. The view is breathtaking through out the day. And it is visible through your rooms window. A perfect place to experience a sunrise or sunset. Bisons visit you quiet often. Rooms are greatly maintained. Clean toilets. Awesome food. Friendly staff. Great for honeymooners on a budget.

Took a deluxe room (a little overpriced for the facilities, but enjoyed the view nevertheless). The negative points are the lack of hot water when we needed it badly, and the poorly managed kitchen. I had to call at least 4-5 times for them to give half a bucket of water. They claim that they will switch on the boiler,... More

After staying at the hostel the manager allowed us to leave a couple of bags in reception overnight. However, he later re-negged on his offer and threatened to throw our bags onto the street. Completely unnecessary and a terrible way to treat paying customers. Do yourself a favour and stay in nearby Vattakanal. It's prettier, cheaper and friendlier!
