“a very average resort”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

i must say the resort is situated far from the town of Kodaikanal. The road leading to the resort is in extremely bad shape. The location is ideal for those who want to just be away from the far maddening crowd and from the tonnes of daily work. For those interested in photography, you will thrilled by the mountains, clouds & view.
The rooms were average. Initially I got to stay in 208, the room was bad, with no bathroom knobs from the outside. so you just couldn't close the door once you are in the room. There were no wardrobes/almirahs/dressing table or cabinets where you could put your clothes or other stuff. The TV had no remote. the bathroom had no door mats so water just spilled into the room after a bathe. Anyway, we were then shifted to another room the next day, which was comparatively better. But still the phone wouldn't work. You kept getting calls from neighboring rooms requesting for service. Hope they fix the phone some day. The travel desk was friendly but vehicle provided broke down 2-3 km from the resort and we had to do a lot of walking.
The breakfast/dinner was good but not value for money. Customer Service was very friendly but they seemed to forget what we ask for. Everytime it's a yes, but they needed to be reminded 2-3 times to get it done.
I have been visiting Country Club resort for the last 5-6 years, and i find this the most average one. However, am optimistic, this resort will be taken good care as well from Country Club folks.

Room Tip: take rooms in 300 series that has an exit to the open verandah facing the mountains far away.

We stayed int he Country Club hotel on 16th and 17th November, 2012 with my in-laws (Total 9 people). Hotel is superb and the location of hotel is fantastic giving a beautiful view of valley in the morning and evening.
Actually we had booked 3 double rooms with one extra bed in each, but these rooms were not available when we reached the Resort. Manager Mr. Bala gave us two big rooms with 2 bedrooms with double beds in each at no extra cost. Rooms were very clean and tidy. The TV with dish (Including Marathi channels also) was a surprise to us. Aslo 24*7 hot water supply is a good thing.

The hotel service is very excellent and the staff is also very co-operative and polite, especially Mr. Sushant and Mr. Bala. The south Indian and north Indian combined dinner and breakfast were excellent. All the things were hot and served quickly.

Only two things which the hotel management should take care of are, the approach road to the Hotel and irregular hot water supply in the morning.

Room Tip: If possible get rooms on the upper floors near valley.

Returned from Kodai last night and had stayed at Country Club Valley Vista from 23rd Dec 2012 to 25th Dec 2012. I would like to share my experience of the same.

Resort is located in a very nice place with a good view of the mountains. Customer service skills of the staff is great. Resort is far away from the city (12 kms) and the approach road is pathetic. They had given us room number 205 and 210, in one room there was no TV and in the other there was no remote. Food here is OK and is expensive. Rooms needs to be more neat and tidy. Bathrooms were just below average with slightly broken doors and broken locks. Overall the experience was just average.

Thumbs up to the entire staff though.

I stayed with my husband for 4 days at the Country Club Valley Vista. This place was value for money... if you want to disconnect from the outside world and only relax, this is the place!! Amidst the mountains and chilling weather, this place is highly recommended for people who want to relax and enjoy a BREAK from the busy city life.. The staff is extremely courteous and the rooms have amazing Valley View!! The peaceful atmosphere is the Cherry on the Cake!!
The city is about 12-15 Kms from this resort and you cannot venture out on your own.. you have to take a taxi to go to the city which takes approximately 30 mins.
But why venture out into the city when you have such a great place to be in!! Excellent!! We throughly enjoyed our stay! :) Kudos to the staff.. Good JOB!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with a balcont on the 1st Floor!! Amazing View!!

Well I just returned from a memorable holiday from kodaikanal and country club hotel has been an icing on the cake ..Me and my wife had visited kodaikanal for 3 nights and after much R&D we had selected country club to stay.We are more than happy and the stay has been awesome .Below are the good points and would justify why would one choose country club a place to stay in order to experience an awesome holiday.

1.The rooms have a vety good view of the mountains and one could see how the clouds cover the peak of the mountain during sunset and sunrise.
2.Would suggest you to select the rooms of the first floor in order to get a good view of the surroundings.
3.Rooms are well maintained and cleaned everyday by the housekeepers there.
4.The staffs are very courteous especially Sushanta the guys who works in the restaurant,the receptionist charles ,the resort manager Mr samir das and all other staffs.
5.Food in the restaurant is a value for money as they have a buffet system.
6.A very good place for couples and families.
7.There are different packages which includes complimentary breakfast lunch or dinner.
8.The hotel arranges for bonfire and music on request.
9.It is situated around 80 kms away from kodai road the station but one you reach there one will forget all the tired and fatigue .

10.THey have trekking and junbgle safari activities arranged by the hotel itself.

There is only 1 km strech of road which isb pathetic but it should hardly matter to any tourist.my wife and me have again decided to visit kodai country
Club the upcoming summer on 2013.

In one word my stay has been memorable and value for money.
