Its a 3 star Sterling property. Location is great and the resort has a very nice landscape. The resort, i was told, has been regularly winning the flower show competition in kodaikanal. The cottages are build at the foot of a hill, hence, you would expect to walk up hill to your space...though not very tedious, they do have a...

The resort is beautifully renovated, excellent food and overall a very memorable stay at Sterling Lake View-Kodai. A special mention: S. Sridhar from the housekeeping was ever smiling and his ready to help attitude made our stay more than comfortable at Room 114 & 114 A. He was outstanding at his work.

One can notice silence amidst the porsche ambience that they offer within the premises. Kodai - by the lake , is no different to what the...

Loved staying in Kodai - By The Lake. Beautiful rooms, greenery all around and proximity to the lake made our days really memorable. The warm and friendly staff took care to see that our stay was comfortable and our sight seeing tours well organised! I suggest that you extend the WiFi facility to the rooms as well.
