“Experience true Kodaikanal!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

A heritage property if I may call it so, unique and one of a kind in Kodai! A must for any person wanting to experience Kodai to the fullest. A beautiful and huge property in the heart of Kodai, something which is hard to find these days. It caters to all kinds of travellers, whether on business, family, friends or even if you just want some solitude. Homely food to top it all!! Calm and quiet cottages spread out all over the property, and a lovely stream cutting across. Accessible from all major tourist attractions.

Room Tip: I personally like the rooms close to the stream!

Good place to stay. Spread out property. Comfortable rooms. They have pick and drop facilities at specific times. However, would be more comfortable if you have own transport. Food is ok. Price can be reduced a bit.
Stayed at the stream facing rooms.

We stayed at Holiday home during the Diwali weekend . Should say it was a pleasant experience. If you are looking to unwind for a few days away from the madding crowds this could be the place. The things we liked best is the location and the space available... located about 4- 5 kms away form the town center, this is a pretty large property with old single storyed buildings spread over the area with a small stream running right through! It was so unlike the run-of-the-mill concrete boxes fitted with all amenities that we usually come across. The serene ambiance with plenty of space to stroll around or read or just relax doing nothing leaves one very refreshed.

Rooms are spacious and has an old world charm about it. Staff was very courteous. Food was good and this included complimentary breakfast and dinner. The restaurant too is spacious and neat.

Overall it was a very pleasant stay for us.

Room Tip: Stream side rooms are better with more space and wooden floors

This hotel is not good for couples and small families, good only for bachelors. This hotel is full of beggers in the name of room boys and service providers. Hotel atmosphere is good and calm, however its costly for the facilities and service it provide to the customers, it has no big difference in cost comparing to luxury hotels in kodai. My recommendation is no for couple and small families who want to spend peaceful time.

Rooms were clean and spacious. We were allocated spring side room for a regular room tarrif since it was a lean season. Manager Nithin was courteous and friendly. We found the food as if home prepared and my kid liked the food very much. Our stay was excellent and would recommend others.

This place will suit best for a family vacation; rooms amidst nature, lot of space for the kids to play around, nicely kept rooms with a very decent food. The only disadvantage could be that it is located slightly away from the town centre.

No doubt,it is time to renovate,and that is what they are doing.There are a couple of finely furnished,up-to-date rooms for 2200-2500/-.but i preferred a room for lesser price.got a huge room with with 6 beds and 2 baths/toilets for 1700/-.when i asked Mr.sekar,[mobile-94429 00896] why so huge a room for a couple and a child,he said,this room is closer to restaurant and would save us a lot of walking.That is true.the other double bedded rooms were scattered and far off.since the huge family room was un-occupied they allotted that room to us.[see photoes]
I may complain that the room was not very tidy and carpets were torn in places.but the plain fact is i won't get a carpeted room for this price.the bill showed a break-up of 600/- as room rent and 1100/- for food charges.
The Dinner was tasty.not a long list of items.but had a good chicken gravy,veg gravy and an average fried rice and chappati's.,rice,rasam and curd.no tea or coffee at dinner.
The breakfast had excellent idli's.good vada's and pongal.no dosa's or poori's.tea/coffee included.
Summary is, for 600/- it is a great room.for 1100/- the food lacks in variety.overall, a decent package.
Add to this,their free pick-up and drop from the town,the nice play area for kids,the serene and silent location,it is a good place to stay,if you don't have great expectations.

Room Tip: ask for rooms that have a geyser and carpet.
