Had a one day stay in Kodaikanal and was plesantly surprised with the room quality. Rooms and toilets where clean with 24 hours hot running water. Excellent views of the Nilgiri mountains, small play area for kids and olders. Fresh oranges and bananas were provided as complimentary checkin.

Comfortable and pleasant stay. Great Hospitality and good room services. Delicious food. Missed to add about the play area (kids play area, basket ball and tennis court) and the location, the relax area (balcony) are the added advantage of carnival. Carnival at its best😉 missing u.!!
