Poor maintenance.. Went with family and booked 3 rooms..room service was pathetic and it takes more time to deliver coffee and tea.TV was not working in one of the room..frequent power disruption and no hot water facility. Approach road is very bad and steep to climb for elderly..

We reached kodaikanal late in the night and even then the hotel folks went out of their way to provide some food for us. They don't have a restaurant and the hotel is on an off beat path but they will bring breakfast on order. Rooms: Spacious and budget friendly.They even have rooms with 3 bedrooms. Sparsely decorated with no... More

It would have been ideal for Family trips, if they had a better service and proper maintenance. Till then, stay away if you are not looking for torn towels, used bed sheets, stained pillows ,no hot water as well as drinking water. You will get better stay in the centre itself.
