JC Residency
Ranked #5 of 84 Hotels in Kodaikanal
Reviewed April 15, 2013

My friend booked 2 Royal Suites for both our families. The Rooms were Cozy and well maintained. Hotel staff were very prompt and approachable. Food met all qualities : taste, hygiene, quality and the way its served. Well maintained Bathroom. Our Kids has a nice time in the amphi theater, small kids play area and neatly maintained lawn with variety of floral plants. Felt very nice with the Bon-Fire lit up. Our Kids enjoyed the place in our 2 day stay. We wished we had one more day to spend in Kodai. Our Busy lives in Chennai pulled us back to work... :-(

Planning a short trip during September. Will meet then.

Room Tip: Pick Royal Suite. Spacious and cozy.

We stayed at J C Residency, Kodaikanal in Apr'12. The property is very neatly maintained, is very organized & the service - always prompt.

The food was enjoyable - has a south Indian flavor to it. The staff is accessible at all times.

We liked the greenery & the flowers inside the property & the building design has a slight European touch to it.

Town tours are arranged on request & the kodaikanal weather makes it even more special.

All in all, a very pleasant & enjoyable stay at J C Residency -Go for it!

I stayed with my family in jan 13 during the pongal holiday,rooms were neat and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. A special thanks to Laxmanan Singh and Morris for their good services.
Rooms had wooden flooring LCD tv with cable connection. They were just changing the wires from set up box to cables. Food was good but the tastes can be improved further. They have a tavera and bolero for the guests.

1. Way too far from the lake where all the action is
2. No sense of cleanliness, staff was unshaven, wearing chappals, there was mold all around
3. Bathroom was dirty
4. No linen during the day, said they hadnt come back from laundry
5. At 8am they told us that the checkout time was 9, whereas the board at the reception clearly said 10
6. I regret choosing this hotel and paying over 3000 for it
