Hotel was as per our expectation. Bre

Hi, It seems you have mentioned unmarried couples are allowed however when I went through some other site and your hotel policy claims that it's not. I need a clarity before booking and it also states that the check in/check out time is 10.00 Am - 11 Am. Kindly confirm the same
Hi, I'm gonna get married coming August. Before that, I wanna take my future wife to a surprise trip to Kodaikanal. I've seen good reviews about your hotel and would like to know whether the ambience is good enough and you guys will arrange for local sight seeing ??? Planned Dates - 13 & 14 th May..
Hello, I am a fellow traveller. I find this hotel good and cozy. Regarding the sightseeing tours, i suggest you to directly contact the hotel administration. For the ambience, this is a budget hotel. The rooms were clean and nicely sized and also, the staff was good. There is nothing wrong with the hotel, but given your aim, this might not fit your expectations. I stayed here overnight (reached late) and checked out the next morning and checked in to a more lavish one (Hill Country Kodaikanal). Hope that answers your question.
