“Off Season break”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

Kodai Club also known as English club is a nice place to stay due to it's brilliant location and walkable distance from Sevens road, heart of Kodai. Rooms are very pleasant and reasonably priced due to the location factor. Lawns and facilities are available a plenty with an indoor shuttle court, 2 tennis courts, library and a pleasant heritage feel permit room. Nice to have a vodka in the permit room in the afternoon. Disadvantages here were the staff can be a bit more pleasant, room service is non-existent and you have to pre-order your dinner and the overall service is very slow and laid back which can be improved. For a leisure trip with family a nice place to stay and can suggest having dinner at the club, and lunches outside. Breakfast is too stereotyp with only South Indian food as an option and can get very boring if you are going for a longer duration stay.

Room Tip: Chose a room in the new wing if your not a nature lover as it is road facing and if you want the old...

The Kodai Club in the heart of the hill station of Kodaikanal (about 7000 feet above sea level), in the South Indian State of Tamil Nadu has been in operation for over 100 years. Originally set up by the British during the days of the Raj, today it is run and managed by a Committee of elected members.

You have to know a member to be able to rent one of the conveniently appointed rooms. He or she will have to recommend your application for Temporary Membership. The rooms are clean and neat with attached bathrooms. The Club is centrally located and the Lake is just a short walk away. The cost of renting a room at the Club is good value for money. Breakfast is included. You can order lunch and dinner at additional cost, from a set menu available in the dining room.

Internet in Kodaikanal can be a challenge. The club has wifi only in the Library. Quite often the connection is unavailable.

Electricity currently can be a problem in Kodaikanal. There are regular hours both in the morning and the afternoon when Power to the Town is switched off. Everyone switches to generators as an alternative source of energy. You will not have hot water during those hours!

Kodaikanal Club is ideally located nearby to Lake,Quacker Walk and other points of interest. Though the club is very old but rooms have been recently renovated with modern fixtures and furnishing. While in groups enjoy barbeque with bonefire in lawns.Though Chef is expert in preparing all types of cuisines but specialities in North Indian and Continental are mouthwatering.But the negatives are there is no room service and bearers are very slow in service.Cleanliness of corridores again an area which must attract the attention of management . Overall a satisfactory experience within budget. Visiters are advised for advance bookings, at least a month, for accommodation Kodaikanal Club
