Went to this place for a vacation in April. Offers a lovely view when the weather is clear. You are sitting over-viewing a valley above the floating clouds. Rooms were decent but the bathrooms fixtures need improvement. Food could be improved and even the management needs to be improved. Overall had a good experience minus the bathroom issues.

I would rightfully rate my experience as 5/5. And though the below may seem like a paid review, I assure you it is not. Thank You for the wonderful & memorable Kodai experience! ............... Stayed here from 16 - 18th June 2016, room nos 11 & 12 (super deluxe, with valley view, guess that's the right description or the closest).... More

In the words of the hotel manager You can probably get places for cheaper in the town but you cant get anything with a better view.... Super place and not too expensive... i plan to return.... The owner is nice and helpful. The wifi is slowish and accessible from the reception.

This place is hardly a 10 mins walk away from the kodaikanal bus stand(but at night and at 10 pm it seemed a little longer than that :P). But... More

I stayed there for six nights few weeks ago in the luxury deluxe room which was big and comfortable (they have all kinds of rooms there but hot water only from 8-10am). The view is amazing. The staff was very nice and helpful. The kitchen only serves coffee tea and bread omelet.
