“OK for the price. Nothing Special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Booked Deluxe room at Richwin for 2 days (20th and 21st April 2013) after reading reviews at Tripadvisor. Were allotted room at ground floor right next to the reception. Asked if we can get a room at first or second floor. Answer was rooms are booked.
Room was clean but being in the ground floor with no view at all 3,066 bucks per night was on the higher side. There is no restaurant. Only Breakfast and Dinner is served that also from predefined menu.
One good thing is that it is very close to Coakers walk and Kodai Lake.
They keep umbrellas, in case of rain, which is quite frequent in Kodai you can get one from the reception.
There was no Fan in the room. I understand that kodai is a hill station and fans are not normally required. but when you are staying in ground floor and cant open the windows then fans provide a sense of airiness.
There is no credit card payment facility, which is a big setback when everyone does not carry cash.
We asked them if someone can clean the car, which was denied.

Over all an OK place. Nothing great about it. May not stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for Balcony room before hand if booking in advance There is no credit card payment facility, so...

First point if you looking for some budget hotel on best Kodai location then this is a right choice. Hotel is descent, clean and overall good. Negative point: 1) Dont have restaurent inside it, but I would say this is not a problem because all major restaurants are nearby this hotel and Kodai resorts restaurent also can be used. 2) Hot water available only in morning 7 to 11, this is manageable.3) Room service is not up to level.

Always prefer deluxe balcony room because the view is awesome from balcony. The location of this hotel is very good near to coaker walk and Bryant park. I booked cab for sight seeing outside and got one really good driver with new Indica vista. (Shekhar: 09842061777). He helped us to plan our trip well in time, driving was very safe and rates was also reasonable.

Room Tip: Always prefer deluxe balcony room because the view is awesome from balcony

Good clean spacious rooms, and helpful staff members. Although I was disappointed with Kodaikanal in terms of the tourist spots, as there wasn't much to see.. plus point of my trip was a good comfortable stay.
Tip: Ask for Balcony Rooms, they are good
Standard and Deluxe rooms are different only in terms of room size, deluxe rooms have an additional sofa set space in addition to double bed...otherwise they are almost the same. Although, I m not sure whether they have a standard room with balcony.

I visited kodaikanal during Feb 2013 and stayed at richwin for a couple of days. I took a standard room and for the cost I have paid, it is really worth it. Room was very neat and clean and looks like the hotel is new. Perhaps there is not much moving space but for a couple it should be good enough. Hotel staff were courteous and Manager Ashoka is a nice person. Coffee/Tea are served in the hotel but their restaurant is not reliable. It is available only on some days. But there are many restaurants close-by so it shouldn't be a problem. I liked the location very much. Walkable distance from lake and bus-stand yet away from the noise. One small problem I noticed was that the rooms were not acoustically guarded so you can hear some noise from outside and adjacent rooms. But that's mostly in the day time. Overall, I would definitely recommend this jhotel and it is a true value for money.

Room Tip: If you are with a kid, I would suggest to go for a deluxe room or suite which will have little more...
