“A nice stay in Kodaikanal”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

We three friends recently stayed at this hotel in Kodaikanal. We rented a double room cottage. The room was quite spacious. The bathroom was very spacious as well. Hot water was also available. Overall a nice stay minus the total south Indian food you get there. Also, less choices to go around, except hiring a taxi, which again becomes a bit costly.

Room Tip: Take a double room cottage. Its a good bet.

The location is really good. Hotel is located just opposite to the lake. Hence you can view the lake just sitting inside your room. You have a good play area even to play cricket. Prices are cheap compare to other hotels in the same location! Room services bad. They not even clean your rooms/toillets unless you request for it!

All the reviews were bad.. so I decided to check it out...At the reception i told them that i wanted to see all the rooms... Suite,Cottages, deluxe and semi-deluxe rooms.... Except the deluxe rooms which are in the new building housing the restaurant and the reception area the other rooms are old and ill maintained.... I chose a deluxe room facing the lake.....The bathroom is ill maintained... Now they are supplying new bed sheets pillow covers and bath towels.... The hotel staff tell you at the beginning itself that there is no room service... The restaurant is clean and shinning new and the food lacks variety but for the price it is tasty and good...Only south Indian breakfast is available and it is good... For Rs.65/- you can order a mini breakfast consisting of idli,vadai,dosai,kichadi and coffee/tea....
There are so many places, and view points over the hills and valleys so you are going to be busy sightseeing so the room does not matter much....For Rs.700/- a eight seater van takes you on a 4 hrs trip...
If You love spicy south Indain food Veg/Non-Veg ..then you can walk up to Selvam Mess next to the entrance of Hotel Shevroy....
Room rates in the other hotels range over Rs.3500/- to Rs.15000/- per night so if you are not a fussy traveller you can stay here and spend the money you have saved on sight seeing and purchsing natuaral herbal medicines which are expensive...
The staff at the reception are extremely helpful and especially Mr.Rao.... small tips mind you, you need not be extravagant at the restaurant and the room service boys gets you immediate attention and tips to the bell boy gets you fresh new towels, soaps, and bed sheets.....
I stayed with family for 2 days left the room at 9.00 am and came back only in the evening so I did not mind some discomfort
The climate was wonderful .. 13 degrees at night... so overall it was a happy experience

Room Tip: deluxe rooms and semi deluxe rooms are newly constructed and good to stay

The location is bang opposite to the lake and you can actually see the lake from the rooms. But the cottages & rooms are just stinking dirty with unclean bedsheets, dirty sofas, the whole room covered with dust, dirty toilets.

One of the bathrooms had electrical shock/leakage in the geyser which is dangerous.

Restaurant also was very dirty and had flies all over the tables.

Overall very bad maintenance & bad experience for the traveller.

Room Tip: Would not recommend the hotel to anybody, not worth even if offered for Rs 500.

No Soaps,Wet Towels,Carpets & Cushion sofa are stinking and dirty.

We booked Delux rooms Rs. 800 only got a off season rate and was shocked to see the status of the rooms. I was pathetic very old building, dirty walls, tiles and geyset broken in the bathrooms. We cut short out trip and asked them to shift us to a cottage which was around Rs. 1300. Cottages was ok and better. Atleast new building. Donot expect any room service. The resort complex is never cleaned. Logs of wood lying around. Staff are all contractors - young boys. Food was pathetic! It is facing the lake tha tis the only advantage. property maintenance is very poor. We saw a green snake that later the hotel boys managed to kill. Ther is no other restaurant near by. Will end up walking around the lake or take an auto to the nearest restaturant. TTDC restaurant food was BAD!

Room Tip: Go for cottages, on season price that is also not worth it!

We should support our own govt run business by availing the facilities for which all govt spends a lot of money, our stay here was a good we have come back with a nice exprience.

For South indian food lovers it is a good place i must say & Yercaud is really poor mans ooty .. this city has more charm than ooty.
