Hotel is slightly away from the city, but a good choice when you want to enjoy your stay in a quite environment. Have a good garden and nice collection of birds for the children to enjoy...

We stayed here for two days with family. Rooms which are present in the sub ground floor have a high level wall dampness which is emitting smell that might be suffocating to few. So, be sure to take the rooms in the upper floors.
The inner room cleanliness is OK but you need to keep reminding the service guys to do their job. We had a problem with the bathroom utilities and took lot of time for the management to get it rectified.
Kodaikanal having a heavy inflow of tourists this might be common across many hotels I feel.

1) Very decent hotel
2) The staff are courteous
3) Indoor Games area & Play area for kids
4) Food is good & the room service is prompt
5) Little away from the lake (Not a good location as well)
6) The hotel arranges for cabs (The sightseeing trip was good, but they have trekking facilities available which we opted and it is waste of money)
7) The rooms are very well maintained and clean

It began with a botched pickup in Kodai Road. Arriving at JC's, in the middle of the night and the check-in experience (the reception) was poor. First the gate was closed and nobody heard the horn of our taxi - nobody let us in. Finally one of the employees dragged himself to the gate to open. The guy from the reception desk showed us that he would prefer to sleep instead of working.
Same time, we asked for a bottle of mineralwater and he only said that it was not possible. "Restaurant closed. Drinking water only in the morning". That's what he said. We almost had to fight, to get a bottle of water...
The first room was damp and cold. The sheets were stained and damp, too. The room was dirty. So we changed room. In the 2nd Room it wasn't much better - but ultimately we wanted finally to get some sleep. A few hours later we got torn from our damp dreams. The hotel's generator (on the parking in front of the rooms) shooked and roared just in front of our window .
The Dosa for breakfast was not really nice. Because our complaints about the dirty, damp rooms we changed the room again... 3rd room a suite... Initially, we were somehow satisfied. But in the evening, the mood changed quick! The sun went down and the whole room began to crawl. A cockroach street followed another. At this moment, we packed our bagpacks and fled in a hurry to the clean, beautiful and friendly APPLE VALLEY HOTEL! We worried that we took cockroaches in our bags with us. So we need to clean carefully our bags.
JC Resdency???? We can only say: Avoid this place!

I was there for 4 days. The rooms were clean and tidy. The house keeping guys will be cleaning the room every morning.
I had taken a honeymoon suite for 4 days 3 nights. The room was very good enough.
Total cost was only 12k including the sight seeing. The hotel has play-park for kids, Amphitheater, indoor games, small gym.
They also have a very good restaurant. And, They will also arrange for a pick-up from kodai road or dinigul and fro.

And finally one advice, Please visit the place on off season. You will have two benifits, first one is the cost and the second one is climate (Very cool).
