Though the hotel is very well located at Kodai, room ambience and maintenance are not that great. Hotel staff hospitality and food were great. Though the prices are bit costly you would enjoy the food.

We weren't really pleased with the services rendered to us by the hotel. We were actually expecting a lot more. Firstly,the food wasn't great. It wasn't cooked completely especially the idly. It was pretty expensive and totally not worth it. Secondly,the staff was friendly but slow. Things kept delaying. We really hope for some noticeable difference the next time we come to you. Thank you.

Comfortable stay with awesome staff and excellent food. As we had the corner room on the first floor we had view of the forests as well as the hills. Kodaikanal is a laid back hill station. You can cover the sights in one day. Remaining days are to chill out.
