Today I came from Kodaikanal. This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed.
1.Rooms are not clean at all.
2.Floors they don't wash at all
3. Bed sheets they don't change for weeks it seems
4.Bathroom horrible. You can't enter without slippers
5.Wash Basin : Most dirty wash basin I have ever seen .I was about to vomit when I was brushing my teeth.

What to tell more. Endless list of negativity.Don't go for this hotel.

Room Tip: Don't go for this hotel.

Folks,

Have been there in May,2011 and had a pathetic exprience. The rooms are not spacious and the staffs are very rude. We stayed there for three days but not even a single time they cleaned the room. No hot water provided in a time and the flushes in the bathrooms were not working

Also had a bitter experience with the travel agency which is operating inside the hotel. They simply cheated us and we lost about Rs.2500. Later I found that it is run by the relative of the hotel owner.
They are liars.

Never get into this hotel and also please cancel it immediately if you already booked in this hotel.

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.
