We stayed here for 2 nights end of March. Our experience was good. Well maintained place. We stayed in the Family triple room, very spacious.
Good simple breakfast.
Room Service was also good and prompt.
Value for Money. I booked through goibibo, got some good deals.

Hi all,
Visited kodai for the first time with my family. Booked Hotal Jai thru online with the help of tripadvisor and again it proved its presence. It was one of the best hotels we have ever been. I have booked a Family triple room which is very big and clean. Both my kids enjoyed and had enough space to play inside the room itself. U can make tea, coffee any time u want without any cost. They have wi-fi and good car parking space. They provided us a complimentary buffet breakfast which is hot and excellent taste similar to our home made food. They help you to book cabs for sight seeing and tours. We had a very pleasant experience in sight seeing especially the forest tour. BEST part is the cab driver (Sridhar) arranged by the hotel helped us as a GUIDE, explained about all the places, takes care of the kids, takes pictures and ensured that we enjoyed the sight seeing without any hustle. Thanks to Sridhar.
Entire hotel staffs are keen to help us to make our trip pleasant. Thanks to all for making our trip a pleasant memory.

In simple words, "Simply superb"

Hi all,

Went to Kodai for the first time with my wife and booked JAI Hotel online. It was one of the best hotels i have ever been to. The off-season price is also good. Good clean rooms, with full carpets and mats. I dont find carpet and mats in most of the hotels.

They have towels, body shampoo, hair shampoo in the bath room.

They have coffee maker. U can make tea coffee any time u want without any cost.

They have wi-fi.

They have good car parking space.

They are very close to the kodai lake, just 1,,5 kms. Walkable,

They help you to book cabs for sight seeing and tours. Price is also good.

They provide complimentary buffet breakfast when you book a room and also buffeet dinner if you book a suite i think.

Good south indian breakfast-idli, vada, dosa, corn falkes, fruit juice, tea, coffee, bread butter jam, halwa(keshri baath).

so many good things about JAI.

We have a very pleasant experience.

BEST part of kodai was all cab drivers are also your GUIDE, they explain about the place, show you the place, guide you and bargain for you with the different experiences like horse riding etc. The best of them is that they take pictures if you are just two of you and dont have anyone to click. They took so many pictures of both of us together. It was fantastic of KODAI. love you KODAI and love you JAI.

Regards,
Anil

We stayed in a honeymoon suite for 3 days in the first week of March and enjoyed the stay. Spacious room with very good interiors adds value to our money. Honeymoon suite comes with a bathtub and room heater. Our room had a lawn view, hot water is available in mornings and evenings on particular timings. At the time of our visit, renovation was going on, however to our surprise we enjoyed a quiet and peaceful stay. While the place is close to the lake, we can still feel away from the hustle and bustle of the main road. Bear Shola falls is just 10 minutes’ walk form here. They have a good space for car parking and a small lawn at the backside of the hotel. Kids play area is not available. Though the buffet breakfast was of good taste, our orders for dinner were not tasty .

These people have another hotel - Hilltop nearby seven road junction. Veg restaurant here was worth trying. We liked the Andhra meals very much. Also, one can try Tava - nearby seven road junction.

No words for the stay, comfort and food. All of them are a 100% bonus. The tour gets better when you get food and good stay. The place is a 100% value for money. So i suggest all my friends and family 2 take a trip 2 kodai and feel the same experience that i had at HOTEL JAI.
A simple tagline would be " see it to believe it ". I have visited the hotel twice in Jan and in Feb. Nothing to complain.

It was quiet a nice experience. I booked just a day before I start, I could get only the costlier room though I do not need. But when I reached on my request they have arranged smaller and less expensive room based on the cancellation. Staff were very helpful. And my package included breakfast and dinner, which saved my time to look for the restaurants.
