Me and my wife stayed in kodai resort hotel from 16th march-20th march i.e 4 nights.
staying in kodai resort is worth for money.They provide cottage type rooms.There are two types of cottages-suite and executive suite.Both are having excellent views of the garden and valleys from the terrace.
LOCATION OF THE HOTEL: just adjacent to the coakers walk.The hotel is located in a quite and peaceful location . it is just 5 mins walk from city market. just 300 mtrs from the beautiful kodai lake,and in front of the Bryant park.This hotel is the right choice for honeymoon couples.
STAFF-BEHAVIOUR: very friendly staffs are there.Mr John,Mr Balaji and Mr Pandiyan helped us a lot regarding pick up from madurai airport,sight seeing,etc.kitchen staffs were also very friendly.
FOODING: excellent.OVERDEN-the multicuisine restaurant is fabulous.Food quality and taste are excellent ,that too in quite reasonable cost.

Staying in this hotel is worth for money.

We did a great deal of resource before picking the Kodai Resort, and we were very happy with the hotel. It's got a great location in Kodai - right next to Coakers Walk and Bryant Park, and less than a 10 minute walk to town. We like to be centrally located, and this was perfect for us.

We booked an Executive Suite, and thought the room was excellent. It was actually 2 rooms, a sitting room with a table and chairs, and a couch that could become a bed, There was a separate sleeping room with a bed and desk, along with a good sized bathroom, and huge outdoor patio. It came with small fridge and coffee maker. We were there in Janauary, and the room was warm - a heater was not needed.

The staff was wonderful, especially the nice man at the tour desk. I had a medical issue and had to make arrangements for care, and he helped make all of the needed phone calls for me. The waiters were really friendly in the restaurant where we had included breakfast every day, and lunch one afternoon. We thought the food was great.

1. They advertise cottages, but what you get when you book one is a suite which is built on top of another.
2. Bad service, bad attitude
3. Complete disregard of 'Do not disturb' sign
4. Unclean restaurant, unclean tables, paper mats on the tables not changed for every meal
5. Overpriced restaurant
6. If you order room service during dinner, they will charge a'la carte rates but restrict your choice to whatever items are available on dinner buffet.

We went for our honeymoon and were completely disappointed with this resort. Need to go on another vacation just to make up for this experience.

We were a small group of 16 persons staying at kodai resort hotel for 3 nights. We thank the manager Mr. John for the personal attention given to us. It was a wonderful stay there and the food was superb. We will come back again next year.

good location,clean and high standard rooms,a very nice garden
only negative is that some staff members are very rude and comes nowhere near the standards a high class hotel staff should maintain.The reception staff and some of the room service guys were terrible.
the restaurant manager and the waiters in restaurant were very nice,breakfast was reasonably good,but lunch was not good at all.

“Your only resort in Kodaikanal - Kodai Resort Hotel” says the resorts
advertisement. They should modify it to the best located resort in
Kodaikanal. From this resort, you don’t need transport, everything is
within walking distance, Coakers Walk, Bryant Park, Boat House, lake etc
all within one kilometer. The cottages are spacious, but the garden was
under reconstruction hence could not enjoy it. Food was good and the
stay homely

I had stayed in Feb for two nights. The resort location is very nice, just adjacent to beautiful cocker's walk. The rooms gives a beautiful view of the hills. The food was good but not much varieties were available because of Off season. Rooms were good and spacious but should be modernised. I recommend this hotel
