The resort itself is beautiful. You can enjoy your morning and nights here. But the services are not up to the mark. We reached at 11:30, the breakfast they served in the room was not hot at all. When told about it, the receptionist made some excuses, rather than accepting the fact. The food is not good too.

Our stay was fabulous and the entire staff did everything in their means to keep us comfortable. They are full of information and are very accommodating, providing us sign transportation and scheduled sightseeing. It is truly a hill resort and we can recommend Lillie's to all of our traveling friends. thank you.

Lilly valley was highly rated as a "homestay" I did not consider it so. It was a regular semi-modern cottage type hotel. The deluxe room was solidly built of colonial construction with stained pine with an enclosed balcony where we ate. The view from the balcony was a mix of mountains afar and jam packed housing closer by. It had... More

We were 2 families (4 adults & 4 kids) .... and we stayed here through May 6 to May 8, 2016. The kids simply loved the place (and accommodation), and so did we! The main USP: There are not too many cottages right now (28 accommodations methinks ... although I could see quite a few new ones being constructed), there... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lilly’s Valley is a uniquely beautiful resort set amid terraced gardens on three acres of wooded land, ringed by towering eucalyptus trees. Its 21 traditional stone cottages are constructed in the colonial British style, with handcrafted woodwork details throughout. It is the rare resort with an eco-focus and no concrete structures: even the furniture is lovingly made by hand by talented craftsmen! Built in 1982, Lilly’s Valley was the first resort in Kodaikanal. Our stone-and-wood cottages, both free-standing and attached, can accommodate couples, small and large family groups, students, and corporate groups.We are located in a quiet suburban neighborhood exactly 2 km from the center of town and the lake. With a short taxi ride or 15-minute walk, you’ll be in the heart of shopping, boating, horse-riding, roller-skating and other tourist attractions.Our style is low-key and customized to you: you can order simple, tasty Western and South Indian dishes from the kitchen, and hold gatherings in the garden gazebo with your own music and programs. We’ll even arrange a cozy night bonfire! We have special rates for long-term stays of one week or more, up to a 50%discount. Discounts are also available for weekdays.Many repeat customers, both Indian and foreign, have been coming here for decades, drawn back by the beauty, peacefulness, and cozy cottages. One Italian child born in one of our cottages returned 25 years later with her husband to stay in the same cottage! ... more   less
