This place is the best option for your stay at Kodaikanal. It is both pocket-friendly and offers a spectacular view. They have an option of dormitories and rooms. One can take in the view either from the sit-outs at the room or from the lovely lawn they have. They also give you an option of lighting a cosy fire at...

If you really want that view which will blow you away, this is one of the places in Kodai you need to look into. We did not enjoy the food which is purely personal. We took a deluxe room which came with a carpet since the temperature was very cold. Apart from that the staff is okay and they don't...

We loved the view from the room both in the night and early morning. Staff were friendly. Saw bisons in the property both night and day. We didn't try their food but next time we will. Must stay place in Kodai.

We has a great time here! The room was bright and clean with a great view of the valley below. It's easy to reach, the bus stand is at walking distance, as is the lake. We had the best time just sitting out in the balcony and watching the lights below :) Very good value for money, will definitely recommend...

This place has some great things going for it, most notably the view. My room (double room with small boiler for 24h hot water) was comfortable enough, but I'd been happy with a smaller and cheaper room if it hadn't been for the lack of hot water. Breakfast wasn't the best (weak coffee, bad jam with toast), but included in...

Me and my husband stayed here for a day. We seriously regretted for not staying here more than a day. Rooms are simple with basic amenities. No luxurious things. But the scenic view Outside room was just mesmerizing. Food was good. Management people were v friendly and we had a v.pleasant stay here.

We were looking for some cheap accommodation in the midst of the peak tourist season. This place gives you no-nonsense accommodation for about half the price that you will need to pay up elsewhere. This is a fifteen-minute walk from seven roads junction, the centre of the town. But then, all that you hear is the tic-tic-tic of the forest...

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.
