i would suggest this hotel as one of the good place to stay. Its very near to the lake and the rooms are clean and well maintained. The staff is courteous and made our stay comfortable. The morning complementary breakfastt(only south indian) is good. One of my freind suggested this hotel and while approching the hotel we felt uncomfortable but once we reached the hotel we felt happy. In that tariff range i feel this is one of the best hotel to stay.

Would rate this as one of the good places to stay the clean interiors are the thing you first note. Very near to the lake. The GM is a very pleasant guy who knows his job and made our stay comfortable. The staff are well mannered too. The only draw back is the restaurant,which could be bettered.

Well, I stayed in this last year with my family. I was really hard pressed for time and didn't inquire around much before booking a good hotel. I searched through the net and booked the first hotel which looked nice in pictures and which had availability in my dates. The only thing Grand about this hotel is the name. Otherwise, nothing much to say. They made me wait in the reception even after having a confirmed booking. Rooms are not up to the mark.

But, the breakfast and food they serve in the restaurant is excellent. Bad thing is, there is no non vegetarian food available.

Also, approaching this place from the bus stand is quite a job, especially in the night. This hotel is good for a couple of days stay, provided if you don't go with much expectations.

Hotel service is good and they changed our rooms when we asked them to. But, a lot needs to be improved if they want to be on top of the business..

Pros: The hotels interior and layout is good.Thats it.
Cons: 1) I took a meal plan which includes dinner.It got a veg restaraunt and that too they just served very few Cheap veg dishes.
2)one single multitalented guy used to handle reception desk-Room serice and Helpdesk.Shortage of staf was clearly visible.If we ordered water it would take ages to reach.
Would suggest to refrain from this hotel or if you still booked dont expect much.

Hi, I went to Kodaikanal recently with my wife and it was a good experience in this Hotel but one thing which I did not like is making guest wait after been informed that rooms are available is bad but food was also good when ever we had breakfast or dinner one more thing is that room service is very slow when we asked for water it took 1 hour to get that also had to make 4 to 5 calls to reception and room service that is one major bad thing which needs to improve.. I give it 3 out of 5
