We booked two superior double rooms.But on arrival we found those rooms were occupied and not vacated,so the person in the reception gave us the two suite rooms and also with a good discount which made us really happy. The food was really wonderful,and especially those idlies wow really soft and our kids loved it. The thing to be improved is that the dining area should be renovated and there should be a separate playing area for kids. Apart from hotel jai has wonderful rooms.

Stayed for a few days. Quality of service was fantastic and the quality of food was nice and the taste was wonderful. Rooms are maintained well. Complementary breakfast has a wide spread and in particular the idlies they serve are very soft which is very rae in a hotels and that too in a hill station. Hats off to their chef.

Room Tip: Rooms are very spacious, particularly 202 and 102 are very roomy.

We stayed in Deluxe Rooms which are pretty spacious and well maintained! The hotel is ~32 yrs old but recently renovated! Food quality and taste was good although the dining room was strictly OK! A small confectionery box is also given as a complimentary gift on arrival! Staff was very very courteous and helpful!

Room Tip: Go for Deluxe or Super Deluxe!

Dear Mr.Kunal,

Thank you for your review. Yes we understand that our dining room is very average. We are in the very early stages of renovating it, we recently finished our rooms and am glad you liked it, we would be soon renovating our dining room and am hoping to complete it quickly.
Thank you.

As kodai has limited scenic, so is JAI limited facilities.

Rooms were neat, restorant was ok below avg.

We stayed there for 2N / 3D recently. 19 Sep 21 Sep.

The pathetic part about it is that they charged 50 bucks for my small baby milk, she is 2.5 years.. when asked about the same, they said it is tourist place.

In our trip we had been to Ooty , Munnar, Thekkady, Madurai. JAI is the only place where we paid 50 bucks for baby's milk. THATS RIDICULOUS to any extent.

It is the management which should know about this...

Rgds,
Harish

Dear Mr.Harish,
Thank you for your review. First I would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused during your visit. Regarding the glass of milk which has bothered you, I would like to bring to you our view on it. Firstly the price of milk has been increased all over and the glass in which we serve milk at our hotel is quite big. Our milk glass is close to 330 ml whereas most hotels it would probably be 150 ml so I humbly request you not to compare our prices with the other hotels you have stayed during you trip. We only charge for what we serve, there are plenty of guests who ask the front office team for a glass of milk, rice, rasam or curd for babies and we do not charge them a penny however once its ordered and delivered we cannot change it. I hope you would agree on it.
Thank you.
