“Kodaikanal = JC Residency”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

The hotel Was very nice. The rooms were quite good. The rooms service was not so great. the staff were friendly and informative. Restaurant was nice but there was no 24 hours room service. The game room is not maintained properly. The fitness equipments gives us the feel of 1970s. The camp fire area is one of the best thing in the hotel. Overall the hotel is excellent for stay but not great for activities.

I enjoyed my 4 day 4 night stay at the cool and cosy JC Residency. The room was spacious, neat and organized. Room Service & House Keeping team was quick & courteous. Food was delicious and the plates/cutlery were clean. Ambiance and the air was positive and gave a homely feeling. The entire staff including the Restaurant Manager and the General Manager were polite, concerned and courteous. Need to provide tea kettle and material in rooms.

Property worth staying with family and kids. Special attraction birds like Emu, game room, kids play area and bonfire space.

I stayed at JC Residency for four nights. The resort is quite and peaceful. Though one does not get the scenic view of the Kodai hills but the ambiance is good and it has a small zoo with birds and Emu.
The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Bathroom is good and good qualities of toiletries are available.It would be nice if Tea making facilities can also be added in the room amenities.

The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The restaurant manager is too polite and very good. I being from Rajasthan and a strict vegetarian was bit apprehensive of food but to my pleasant surprise, I relished every dish served.

I recommend the property to all those who wish to visit Kodai and love peaceful, homely and nice stay must try this. The food and services are very good. I even enjoyed a ten minute massage on massage char.

There is alot of space for bonfire and place for kids to play. The staff is really friendly and helpful and makes sure that the stay is comfortable and memorable.
