The hotel: Doesn't allow you to see a deluxe room if you have booked a Super Deluxe online, thats because they make a fool out of you by giving a deluxe room for a super deluxe price.
They Dont change bath towels everyday so better carry your own.They Don't provide water unless you beg over the phone multiple times. Beware of the reception selling off agents tour packages to visit places. They charge you a bomb for an old car. Regarding the sites they take you, read below about Kodai.
The Sunshine Restaurant at Hotel Sunrise
Food is not bad but not good either. Its a make good arrangement and you we kept composing ourselves that we are in a hill station so what else to expect!
The Major heartbreaker is how their staff will sell what they have in the kitchen & not what you choose from the Menu. Don't be surprised as their Kitchen was smaller than the one I have at home. It Goes something like this:
Staff: Sir we have Pongal, Puri & Bread Omlette, Have Pongal Sir, Super Sir Super! Ok
Customer: Dont you have Idli Vada
Staff: Sir Pongal, its yummy & super hot,ok ok - Hey Waiter - 2 Pongals on this Table
Tea is even more horrible - Its like a Sharbat with a Kilo of sugar in every cup. No matter how many times you ask them to give Sugar separately, they didn't listen.
More important than anything else, my wife & I got shocked with the attitude & audacity the staff had when they billed us for things we never ordered. Even on realizing the mistake, they arrogantly tell you sorry & their Disappointment's of the customer checking the bills clearly reflects on their face. Make sure you pay as you go as if you will ask them to bill it your room, you will really be pressing hard on your memory to realize when did you order chicken leg & coffee & water bottles and dosa's.
Something that I spend 30 minutes doing when I checked out.
Like every Hill Station Kodai is good. Unfortunately the travel agents have names 6 - 10 different places on their travel cards just to fool customers, following places are made up:
VIP Forest Trip - There is no VIP about this, its just BS
Its like naming your dark unused garage as ''Haunted''
Lastly - Beware of Sri Durga Travels
What do you say.
