Stayed here for 2 nights in July 2016. Right next to Coaker's Walk, lovely views from the hotel dining areas. Very relaxing. The staff were extremely welcoming and made our stay enjoyable. Food for breakfast, lunch and dinner always served hot which was much appreciated. Very weak WIFI.

Would highly recommend this place in Kodai. Request... More
