Good ambience !!!!!!!! Accommodation was very good !!! The staff were very courteous and helpful. Scenic environment and a good spot for candid photography. The management could consider the possiblity to operate a shuttle bus to the city. Overall, completely worth the stay :)

I am very much impressed with the ambiance and food. Staff were too good and especially both Daniel and Vinoth were very friendly. Resort is very calm and lively, overall it's worth for your money. If I visit Kodaikanal once again then I will prefer to stay in Lilley Valley

This is a great resort, fabulous staff, well maintained exterior place and a great location. It was a very pleasant stay. Food was also good but not much varieties. We stayed as three couples, certain bathrooms could be better. Overall a pleasing and pleasant stay at the resort.

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.

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
