The location plays a vital role in choosing this hotel. It helps in easy access to sightseeing & kodai town. We had got the best deal by getting a much discounted price for Heritage suite rooms. This was my first stay in Hotel Jai after the facelift in recent years. The rooms had been quite spacious, clean & tidy. Hope deluxe rooms were spacious as well.The hospitality of staffs were outstanding. The breakfast provided was nearly a basic type. There is nothing like a drawback thing but still the hotel management could improve the breakfast spread as well as the dining room. Overall it was a comfortable stay!!

we had visited this property in last month with my friends for three days stay, cleanliness of this property absolutely zero and services if you required you should call for 3 to 4 times. i saw lot of excellent comments in TA so we decieded to stay here. Be away from this property by seeing photos in TA or another sites.

Dear Sir,

Your review has rather taken us by surprise. I wish to inform all travelers reading this review that we at Hotel Jai place high standards of cleanliness and the word used by the reviewer 'absolutely zero' is hard to believe. Sir, you should also inform other travelers for which service you had called 3 to 4 times, our staff have been instructed as per hotel policy not to buy alcohol from outside and provide for guests, it should be done directly by you if you wish to do so, and after having clearly told it's not possible another 3 calls is not going to help and its only wasting time. I hereby wish to inform other travelers that photos of the property you see on TripAdvisor are genuine and are not fake. I as the hotel owner can say the photo you see on TripAdvisor or our hotel website if not the same on your arrival show it to us an I give your room free!!

Hotel Jai was an awesome hotel to stay with. Not far from the city, this hotel is calm and quite. We stayed here for One day. The rooms are nicely sized and has all basic amenities. The food here was awesome and so as the Room service. We had breakfast included in our package and that was good too. All in all I moved out as a satisfied customer. I will come again.
