We booked this place over the net and did not know what to expect. We were two families (couples) and too a two bedroom suite. It was furnished like an apartment hotel, two bedrooms, a drawing room to sperate them (and the noises) and a kitchenette.

The view was great , though the lake view was gurded from some of the villas. 120 plus cottages in various formats (double/ single beds) overlooking the Kodai lake. Dec Jan is the best time to go when the weather is chilly.

The cycling and boating at the lake can keep you occupied for a few afternoons. The toy train if you have kids. Good food at the Lake view (the Tangri Kebab was the best) and also at the Carlton by the lake side.

The rooms are cosy - yuo can ask for firewood to make the evening even more romantic !!

One of the good locations in Kodaikanal, very close to the lake and several other attractions. However, the approach road to this resort is in a bad condition (i had great difficulty driving from the main road to the resort entrance!!). The amenities in the resort is very old, badly needing a change. The resort on the whole is badly maintained.

Our stay at Sterling Lakeview resort was a fairly comfortable one even though there are some areas which need improvement. The staff are friendly and courteous. The rooms are just alright and cleaning service needs to improve. The resort is just 10 minutes from the lake and all restaurants are situated close by, but the road leading to the resort is not a concrete one and hence becomes very slushy during rainy season. We did have some programmes and get together in the evenings,which kept us occupied.Hope to have a better stay next time,as some face lift is being given to the resort now.
