“A great homely experience”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

I had spent 2 days last week here with my famiy in 2 premium suits. The experience was excellent with personal attention from Mr. Najmal. The service was very good.
This is a very nice place slighly away from city center & away from buzz. It has a great lawn to sit out & enjoy. We have also enjoyed bone-fire which was a great experience.
A small section is there for children to play outside as well there is a kind of big hall inside where all can enjoy.
The food was good but not much options & repetative, as informed by Mr. Najmal he is looking into improvements. Also, improvements required in room maintenance though the rooms are very clean & neat.
Overall it was a great value for money, as a kind of home away from home.

Room Tip: Premium suites are a good option as they have direct acess to lawn area backdoor which is a kind of...

I stayed in Mount Pleasant from 15th May to 18th May 2013.We were 5 Adults and 2 kids. Mr.Najmal(owner) had given us a warm welcome and showed us around the premises. He and his family were very friendly and they treat you as one of their family members. The surrounding were very calm and green. The backyard and front yard has pear trees.There is a small play area for kids outside, which the kids liked.

We had booked the Prime Suite and this room had a another open room upstairs. The kids were very happy with this room.
The rooms are clean and well maintained. During your stay, I am not sure they would clean up your room when you are out unless you request for it.
The breakfast was very delicious (idli, sambar, chutney, poori,omlette, bread toast with butter). You will have to inform in advance if you will be present for lunch or dinner.

The location is very good and Mr.Syed (Tour operator) had helped arrange for sightseeing every day. We had a chevrolet Tavera driven by Stephen a young and kind chap. I recommend to book your daily tours through Syed.
Stephen was a good and skillful driver and guide, He doesnt speak hindi or any other language, but he can understand english and replies back in tamil :) Though we dont speak Tamil, being from southern India, and having used to listening to Tamil, it was easy for us to understand what he has trying to say. If you speak tamil, he would be the best to guide you around.

The upper lake view is actually walkable from this place. It might take 10 to 15 mins. It would be cool to walk over there early at 6.30 or 7 AM to have a nice view. Beside the homestay, there is a flower nursery, you might have a look, though it is not a sightseeing place, its worth having a look.


Places to Eat:
Abys Cafe for snacks (chats, pasta, pizza etc)
Pastry corner
Cloud street
Astoria (only veg)

All in All, our stay was very pleasant and enjoyable. My thanks to Mr.Najmal and his family for making our stay a memorable one.
Highly recommend for families, if you have kids, book the prime suite.

Best Regards,
Sam & Family

I stayed in this homestay with my family, from 11 May to 14 May 2013. I select this hotel from Trip advisor. The homestay is located in a quiet and beautyful location, at 2 Km. away from city. Property is well maintained. I stayed in upper rooms, with additional mazzenine level bed.
Rooms were clean and well furnished. Toilets were clean and hot water available all the time. There is free access to mini library and a telescope.
The owner of the homestay, Mrs. and Mr. Najmal were present all the time to take care of us. They help us in every possible manner.Food was excellent and homely and we enjoyed it.
Way from the main road to homestay is very steep. We had no own vehicle, so everytime we had to climb up to reach the main road. During our stay, due to some reason, there was shortage of house keeping staff. Our rooms and toilets were not cleaned during our stay. Hope that the issue is resolved by now.
Overall it was a nice time we spent with mount pleasant.

Room Tip: Roos at upper level are better.

Three of us husband,my son and me had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the pleasant hospitality of this resort. Throughout from booking till stay we had a very good experience and pampered by the hotel staff , especially by Mr.Nejmal and his family. Food was homely and never felt to have outside food. Room is clean and neat. In total it was a pleasant stay , look forward to stay again and we'll recommend to friends. Arul, Deepa and Nitin

Mount Pleasant was recommended by our friend (Mr. Syed) in Kodaikanal. We also browsed the net for information & found this place suitable for our stay. The location was peaceful. The rooms were well maintained. Guests have access to the mini library & telescopic view. Food served was delicious. We were amazed by the hospitality. It was a home stay away from home.

We that is my family of three-myself, my wife and my kid stayed in this calm resort on 13th May to 15th May 2013. For city dwellers like us it was just a heavenly stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our peaceful and calm stay in the valley at really cool temperatures, with homely food and warmth from the host- Ms and Mr Najmal. I recommend to all my fellow travellers to stay and enjoy in this excellent property at a really reasonable rate.
