Reviewed July 1, 2012

I travelled to Kodaikanal on 26 Jun and stayed here with my wife. Here are few observations -

Good things :
1. Good rooms. I stayed in suit and rooms were good with all amenities
2. Good views from Balcony
3. Accessible to most of the places near by like Coakers walk and park

Points to note -
1. Hot water supply is only from 7 to 11 AM
2. Breakfast services below average
3. Limited food option in hotel
4. Rooms seems little short of space

Room Tip: Opted for suit and was ok kind of stay.

Pros:
The location of this hotel and the service extended by the managers

Cons:
Cleanliness of mattress and Room were sightly below average
Limited supply of hot water makes it a tough stay for parents with Toddlers
No restaurant available in hotel except for a small kitchen which serves a pre-defined menu or nothing at all
Hotel grossly understaffed and so orders from kitchen takes a lot of time to reach you

Recommendation:
This hotel can be considered for quick stay during a day trip

We stayed in this hotel for a night in April. The rates were very high during seasons. Hotel rooms are very clean. managers are very helpful. Rooms does not have air condition. It does not have a resturant where you could have food. hotel does not not have ample car parking area. Hotel is situated in a good location. This hotel does not have any play area.

It could be better if they start a resturant.

Mani.

Room Tip: for budget travellers stardard rooms are good. because its more or less the same as delux rooms

The best thing about this hotel is the location, just adjacent to Coaker's Walk and Bryant Park and 5 mins walk to the bus stand and the Kodai lake. The rooms were small but neat and modern with cupboard and LCD TV. I got a standard room just next to the reception in the ground floor so there was some disturbance due to people talking in the lobby. Hot water was not at all available on the second day of our stay. The biggest negative is that there is not attached restaurant so we have to walk about 0.5 km to have our BF/dinner. The receptionist was friendly but seemed to lack customer service.

Room Tip: Book only the standard room as the deluxe room and suite are too expensive and not worth the amount.

This hotel has clean rooms. But their suite and delux rooms are not worth for the price they charge during seasons. This hotel does not have a children play area, no lawns, and no food except for tea and cofee.

Hotel managers are friendly. I would recommend this hotel but its not worth for the money you pay on seasons as you get three star rated property for the same rates with more amenities.

Room Tip: Delux rooms with Balcony are good.
