“Wonderful Place”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

I love traveling to places that offer a lot of solitude, calm for me to relax and step out from corporate life and take it easy for a while and Fairway Inn was just 'perfect' for me. Lovely gardens, lovely people from the owner to the staff, very genuine, felt more like part of a family and very well looked after. Great conversations with the staff as some of them worked on the organic garden and also with the owner who offered a wealth of information on Kodaikanal.

If you want to get connected to nature and stay away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist place, then drop into Fairway Inn. We had an unforgettably relaxed experience here.An excellent place for people who love to have some quality time in solitude and serene environment. The place is beautiful, well maintained and they work out every detail to ensure that your stay is a pleasant one. A wonderful cottage in woods with a cute living area, spacious bedroom with a classy rustic fire chimney , the quilts added touch to the bedroom and a kitchen...
If you are an ardent book reader,need to mention the gazebo, you can get lost for hours together in this wonderful little paradise.
A complimentary customized welcome basket was a nice idea.
Food: An excellent balance of taste and health is ensured here.We were served more than what we could stuff ourselves with. I can still feel the flavor of the organic veggies....

What stands aloof of everything is the way the owner took care of us all through. Super friendly person and it was completely a home feel.
I ve already fallen in love with this HOME and I am sure you guys would also.....
Thanks for making kodai so special this time !!

We loved staying at Fairway Inn, enjoyed the peaceful quiet and beautiful garden and the family got to spend quality time together. Well located, the lake was about a 5 minute walk away, but also tucked away to give privacy and solitude. We enjoyed the warm hospitality and good food served to our own cottage living room. The hosts were very gracious and we also got to enjoy the many discounts they were able to get for us with the retailers in the town on things like homemade chocolate and cheese. We'd definitely come back and recommend this place to anyone who'd like to have a great experience at Kodaikanal.

You can sometimes tell a book by the cover and just interacting with the owner by phone, email and then later in person, was simply a pleasure. He is a class act, very cultured and gracious and with great hospitality.

The place is a wonderful cottage with a cute living room, large spacious bedroom with an fireplace and a kitchen. We loved the entire atmosphere, its so very quiet and relaxing, the gardens and gazebo were very well maintained and a treat to just lounge about and take it easy.

We felt very secure and well taken care of and had a wonderful homestay experience. There is no room service and food is served at certain times and need to be ordered a day in advance but being a homestay this is normal as its not a hotel. Lots of people go stay in a homestay without realizing what it means. Our children loved the gardens, and we loved that we could just walk to town in 15 minutes and to the lake in less than 10 minutes.

Our host went out of his way to explain unique places in Kodai we could visit that most tourist have never heard of. We also got a chance to take his extra car out as we came without transport. Our kids loved the giant flat screen tv and the wii entertainment system that kept them busy for ours.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely visit again. Thanks so much for all your kind help and care. From me Malini and the Duggal family.

We have gone on tours to several hill stations here and especially during season time it can get quite crowded. This place was very close to town, and the lake but absolutely silent and peaceful with beautiful gardens. Its a heritage property with a short drive in through some forest that makes it very private. The service was excellent, the food great and home cooked, and we got a complimentary welcome basket by the management which was very nice of them. We have found a great place that most people coming to Kodaikanal have not stayed and we were quite lucky as we got it through reference from our friends who have stayed here before.

Room Tip: Book well in advance as its booked full weeks and months in advance.

Had an amazing experience. Very cozy place. Where else can you find a cottage in the woods, in the midst of Kodaikanal. Among the best experience I've had in my last trip to India. The owner was very helpful in organizing our sight seeing trips around Kodaikanal. Functional fire place was a nice touch.

This place is my first choice to stay in Kodai and I have been coming here for over a decade. It really has a lot of character and makes my trip enjoyable every time. It has an amazing lawn, fresh organic food, is close to town yet not in the crowded bazaar area. The proprietors are excellent people who have an extensive knowledge of the Palani Hills and they always recommend amazing sites for picnicking. They assisted me with Golfing and trekking too.
This place really captures the fog swirling hills and is also a very romantic and private get away.
I highly recommend this place, for a romantic get-away, a Golfing trip or just to sight-see with family or chill out with friends. The kitchenette is a real boon and the prices are unbelievable. Two thumbs way up. Thanks for making Kodai the most enjoyable hill-station.

Thank you for your kind feedback. We try to always leverage our extensive knowledge of Kodaikanal so that our guests can benefit from them and see Kodaikanal through the eyes of a local resident. This provides a value add that 99% of tourists do not get. We appreciate your past stays with us and the fact that you keep coming back to stay with us, is a small testament to our service, location and property quality.
