It is centrally located. Has a lot of extra curricular activities which is good as Kodaikanal has limited places of visit. One full day is enough to visit all places of interest. Large garden, play area for kids, indoor and outdoor games for adults. Staff is courteous but is a bit slow to respond. Structure is old, renovation is on for each cottage on a rotation basis. Great variety on food including bar facilities at a reasonable price. Restaurant staff is hotel management college students hence service is bit slow and at times irritating. Overall good experience.

Room Tip: Rooms at the far end of the hotel are quitier

Awesome experience of stay at Hotel. Courteous staff and good room service. Lip smacking complimentary breakfast with North Indian, South Indian and continental variety. Lots of indoor and out door games for playing like Chess, carrom, billiards, badminton, hand football, Volleyball, cricket, basket ball, mostly free except for billiards. Wonderful park with game area for kids. Big property with 70% open green area. I stayed in Deluxe room which was well maintained.

Room Tip: I stayed in Deluxe room which was well maintained.

Amazed to find so many things inside the hotel. The faded out paints made me feel lil down, but later I felt the heaven part inside. More than 10 species of rare n wonderful birds n animals, long list of indoor n outdoor games, a nap in garden with falls view, well decorated interior n exterior, tasty food n cooperative staff to guide you

What else would a traveler expect during his travel!

Stayed two nights and days.
1 standard suite and the other in the row houses(don't remember the name). Ended up payign 30+.
The Row house comes with A lounge(with Tv and a couch, and a kettle), a spacious room ( tv, a mini refrigerator, godrej safe, couch), balcony and a bathroom.The bathroom is fitted with a bathtub ( I don't prefer the bath tubs, so was not very happy showering ).
The standard suite is okay sorts, a basic bed and a tv. Dirty bathrooms. Had put up an extra bed for my sister,which they charged to the expensive room. Patchy wifi.
Entertainment/other activities:
There's a huge lawn, a basket ball court, slide and swings, merry go roubd, bonfire in the evenings and dj music you can dance to.
Restaurent : Buffet has a decent spread.
Do not try the a la carte. "DO NOT". waited 40 min for a bowl of curd rice, ( father is a diabetic and he needed something that was readily available, he ended up dozing off). Pathetic service and food is average. The best bet would be book a standard suite and dine out for lunch and dinner( try astoria or woodlands, or hill top oven for pastries, if you prefer high end then carlton.)
And make sure you go thru the bill 3 or 4 times
Felt cheated( extra persob was billed to the wrong room). Wudn try/recommend this place again.

Dear Guest,
We thank you for staying at our hotel and sharing your experience on TripAdvisor.
We are glad that you enjoyed the Entertainment and other activities.
We would like to inform that the Extra Person charges remain the same for all room categories.
We have informed all the Service staff at Restaurant to enquire with the Guests if they would like to have any food items served early (as curd rice usually comes at the last)
Your comments regarding wifi and bathrooms will be looked into and rectified.
