We stayed there for 2 nights in December 2010.
Except the valley view which it has got, there is nothing good at this place.

Location: The approach roads to this place is horrible. Luckly we had taken a taxi and hence somehow managed.
Caution for people taking their own vehicles.

Service: Extremely poor.
There was an electrical problem in the room (socket & switch) which the electrician could not fix.
There was no other room available since it was new years rush.
The restuarant service is the worst. You give a simple order and wait for more than 30 minutes.
80% of the items listed in the menu card was not available.

Rooms: Poor
The rooms were not clean, the furnitre in the room was quite old and not maintained at all.
The curtains and bedsheets were shabby.
The fittings in the bathroom used to come out in our hands while using. No plumber was available.

We had booked in to the resort for three nights and had paid the utility charges. We had booked for 4 adults.

It was a difficult task reaching the resort as there were no signages and the directions given by the resort were also incorrect. We finally managed to reach the resort.

Our problems started from there on. The room that the reception was alloting to us was suitable for 3 adults only. When we argued that the room is required for 4 adults the front office guys had the courage to say that you should manage. We tried calling the booking office at Pune, however since it was past 6PM the office was closed, hence no one answered the call. We called up the head office, where we were asked to call back the next day, as everyone had left for the day. Finally, we requested to speak with the manager. We could speak to her over the phone and surprisingly, the manager was of no help as well. The guys at the reception has the decency to say that we have suite rooms which can accomodate 4 adults, but the voucher we had stated one room. Is it our look out to find out what are the types of rooms / suites they have or should the booking staff look at that?

The manager and the guys at the reception wanted us to take two rooms, and pay for one room. It was a terrible experience.

While we were there for 30 minutes, we saw 5 customer coming to the reception and complaining of different things not working such as TV, Light, etc.

We did not stay there for more than 30 minutes and would suggest that do not book into this resort as the people there are real cheats and do not wish to help their customers in any way. Infact will also suggest that do not take membership with this company as the company does not respond to complaints.

Room Tip: Suggest do look for other option instead of booking into this resort

Highland Holiday Homes was the superb place to stay with very nominal charges including all type of food all the time. Very neat and clean with all modern aminities. The Highland Holiday Home resort is located on a small hill & has good views around.There is a swimming pool & a Table Tennis table.Good views and the staff were quite helpful.

We went to Kodaikanal by last month as a family vacation for a week, we select the highland parade because we are member of the highland holiday homes from last four years, but we use kodaikanal resort for first time, we enjoy the location and hospitality provided by the staff but i think there is to develop the restaurant because we waited for 30 minutes for every time what we ordered and there is no buffet system (if is there then we feel more comfortable), but out of that we enjoy whole week in Kodaikanal parade hotel 100%, we wish to go again next year for the same hotel with more fun and group! thanks - Monica, Chennai 944** **332.
