Excellent place to stay in, if your priorities include spending quality time in a cozy yet calm place in Kodaikanal. The place is quite nicely done up complemented with some great staff. The food is awesome (I am veg so my comments are restricted to Vegetarian stuff I tried). I am not a great "view" guy so I cannot say if the hotel had some "breath-taking" views, but yes, it was scenic and definitely not boring. The place has a good travel desk and they do a good job in that too. I can talk about small issues there but that would be nit-picking. One suggestion to the hotel management is that they can put some sign-boards to indicate the route to the place. This is slightly off the main town and can be tricky to find if you cannot speak the vernacular
Nicely maintained rooms
Cons:The deception starts from the name itself. It is a good 2 km from the lake. The rooms may be lake facing but it would take a telescope to view the lake. The Hotel is actually by a swamp.
Pathetic Service - If you feel like asking something for the room expect atleast 5 reminders and 1-1/2 hours.
Buffet Breakfast - Almost all the vessels would be empty all the time and all the waiters would be too busy to attend guests.
Bottomline - Try only if someone is sponsoring you , otherwise be ready for big frustrating Kodai
It took lots of time for us to trace your hotel, as there was absolutely no sign boards nearby and the name of the hotel was unaware even for locals. The approach road to the hotel needs immediate attention as it would be very difficult to reach there during rainy season. Our overall experience about the hotel was very pleasing.
The hotel and ambience was good. But one irritating thing was that the hotel billing person asked us to pay money once again at the hotel even though the amount had been debited from my card while booking. But thanks to the expedia customer care which responded in time and saved us our money.Great service by Expedia.....!!!!!!
