After reading few good out of lots of bad reviews about Green Acres Resort (GA Resort), i still decided to go-ahead with the booking, that too for 2 nights stay at kodaikanal. Searched few travel sites, Makemytrip, cleartrip and goibibo and finally booked through goibibo. BUT TO MY SURPRISE, WHEN I CALLED AT RESORT A Day Before, THEY DIDN'T CONFIRM THE BOOKING. Then chased with goibibo and booking was confirmed. My advice is, book through TravelGuru, on reaching resort, i asked at reception, why my booking was not confirmed, he said that they have good ties with Travel guru not with goibibo. then i asked why your hotel was listed on goibibo site, he said, probably, goibibo inturn refers to travel guru..ok i didnt bother much about his words, as we were in good mood after seeing the resort.
Ok, coming to resort stay, its situated at awesome location, right opposite to lake. For lake view, you have to book lake view rooms. i booked standard room. Ambience was quite nice, calm and clean, while entering in resort, i was well greeted with "Namastay", went to reception and room was given within 5 minutes. (I also called resort on the way that we will be reaching approx at 3 PM, so keep the room blocked, as the check-in time was 12 noon)
Entered in the room, room was neat and spacious like anything, it looks like 20x12 room. bathrooms were clean, towels, soap and oil were neatly kept at their respective places (like some fellows said negative about this, so thought of mentioning it).
Gardens are well maintained. They have bourne fire available on-request. Cottages are good. Overall good, i think they are improved now.
ROOM SERVICE, little can be improved, but its good, as restaurant is little far from std rooms. but food options are very limited. (Means Very limited) but tastes good. since we are from North india, so ordered some north dishes, and it was good in taste.
Next day breakfast, South style, DOSA Idly only available, it was yummy in taste. But rate list is high in the sky.
For children, they have children play area, my kid was not willing to leave that place and go to Brynt park.
Check-out was smooth..AMPLE and safe parking... you may face little communication problem with room service staff as they communicate in local language.
