Please do not go for this hotel , we had very bad experience with the Hotel

Customer Service - Don't know how to behave with the Customer (Always arrogant with the Customer)
Room service - Too Bad,No power Backup , No current (Especially during Night),No hot water, No Security services.
Food Service - Bad quality of food and also can't able to keep in mouth.please do not go for food in this hotel.

First they will brain wash by providing compliments like Fire camp , room compliments.
And also first they will fix one package amount then literally will change according to them.

Travels : Don't book travels in Royal hotel since they have link with each other and will play according to the situation. and also poor. co-ordination.

Overall : please avoid this royal hotel .

Hello all, Its a kind request to the people coming to this hotel, Please for god sake do not consider this hotel for a stay, especially if you are coming with your wife for honeymoon. I had a pathetic experience after i came here. This hotel is worst than a brothel. The staff here is so rude & unsupportive here.

The hotel offers decent accomodation, rooms have TV/Hot water facitlity etc.. Hotel's restaurant is also decent and offers good south indian food. It's an economical pick for visitors to Kodai!!

We stayed for two nights in this hotel. Here are the comments.

Connectivity: Located at Moonjikal, pretty far from the Main Kodai Area. Connectivity to the city is good, can use taxi to or local busues available near the main Road .

Cleanliness : Rooms are ok, Not great, Beds and bed spreads looked old. Good it had Wooden flooring just near the bed. Bathrooms are cleaned daily. Towels were not provided for the second time, even after requesting for many times. even though we used it twice, we had to use the same once for the third time,

Food: There is a small restaurant at the basement. Just after entring here, i decided not to have food at this hotel ! not a recommended place to have food. You may have the food at Kodai Internalitiion hotel, which is just a few steps away. I ordered food directly to my room, plates and glasses were not clean.

Stayed with spouse and child for two days. Room is big enough for us. Having nice bed with TV set. Provided hot waters in the morning. Room heaters are provided on request with additional payment.

Since it is situated on the entrance to Kodaikanal on a place called Moonjikal, it is free from any pollution and crowd.

Restaurant is also available and is provided tasty food.
