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.
