We had booked a triple deluxe room. We went in off season.
The lounge area is awesome.

Pros:
Very well maintained room. The bathroom was spacious and well maintained
Complimentary breakfast was a buffet and the items were excellent!!! No mosquitoes or insects at all!!! Regular hot water supply

Cons:
Not that big room. There is no good view from the window. No balcony. TV clarity was not that good for certain channels. No lift.

Overall:
I would recommend you to this hotel incase you are not spending a lot of time inside the room. Remember that its a hotel not a resort.

Room Tip: 2nd floor is for honeymoon suite and 3rd is for deluxe room. If there are aged people, they might ha...

I have booked a room through make my trip.com on 10 & 11 th Aug. 2013. The room type is Royal room. But when we arrived to the hotel they have given us cottage room which is very small and very dirty. When I enquired they simply told all royal rooms are full. After a big argument finally(after threatening that I will complaint to makemytrip.com) they have given me the Royal room. Those who are booking this hotel please be careful as the hotel management will cheat you. Do not book family cottages, these rooms are very bad. Royal room is ok.
Breakfast which is included in the Room package is good. The parking is too congested and you will nor find a place to park your vehicle in peak season.

Room Tip: If you want to book a room in this hotel never book family cottage. Its really bad

Pros:
1. Decent rooms. Was looking ok clean but towel n blanket were old
2. Cheap compare to other similar hotels in kodikanal
Cons:
1. Un-professional staff. Eg they scolded me why I dont I carry xerox of id card. Why I came late in afternoon if I came by car, as they dont hv enough parking and asked me not to take car out in evening.
2. Room service almost zero. We called multiple times but no one picked phone.
3. Location: Near lake but lot of mechanic, bars around. We went to lake once by walk and it was horrible experience.
4. Food: Buffet with almost 0 variety. Breakfast still ok but dinner was horrible.
5. Parking; This hotel is clear no if you plan to drive your own car. Very small and unorganised space. Dont trust on their driver to park car, I got a big dent on my car.
Misc:
1. Booked through ibibo, they claims that hotel has good parking but in real its almost none.
2. Booking voucher says check out time as 12 but hotel say before 10
3.hotel driver damaged my car and when I called ibibo, they said that its not our problem. At that time, I remember their TV add that they dont put knife in back but I realised that they put direct on chestB-)

I had a good stay at this hotel.
Located very close to all the major attraction in Kodaikanal.
Rooms are very clean and the service is very prompt and the food served is very good.
It is hundred percent value for money.
