Pros: 1) Good Budget hotel for middle class. 2) Helpful Canteen boy. Brought hot water for drinking whenever requested. 3)Arrangement of car by hotel (both tour Packages & Pickup/Drop) and helpful driver in guiding the right places for purchases/site seeing. ***He took care of our children during trekking and while having lunch. 4) Good Ambience (booked Deluxe room). 5) Decent Taste in the restaurant (Not best of course, for North Tamil Nadu people like me). Genuine Cons: 1) No geyser in rooms and hence 24 hour hot water facility is not available in bathroom. Hot water available only 4 hour in the morning. However they would give hot water in bucket if needed during other times. 2) No window or any other ventilation available apart from main door and Balcony door, and hence Some people would feel suffocation during night since we close the doors. We opened bathroom door during nights since the is a ventilation in the bathroom Note: None of the middle class hotels in Kodaikanal have fans installed in the rooms due to cold climate exist there. But people who are habituated in sleeping with fans switched on even during winter seasons, will feel difficulty. Those people are advised to book A/C rooms (3+ Star hotels). 3) Located Away from the city where no many restaurants and Street tiffin shops are there. Will have to depend on Cabs (no auto available in Kodaikanal due to geographical reasons) or have to walk atleast 1km. Overall good hotel to stay in Kodaikanal for lower middle class and middle class people.…
the stay was great.the experience was homelike. the staff were very friendly and their service was amazing.they were very keen on making the guests feel comfortable and at home. looking forward to staying here again.
Really love this experience hotel staff was very friendly food is very good rooms very hygienic and parking Wi-Fi also available front desk people guide me the visiting places in Kodaikanal I will spend my Deepavali holidays in hotel gurupriya it's really good thank you guys
Hotel gurupriya.... very nice stay ... Staf was very good ... Nice and tasty food .... My dear friend visiting Kodaikanal and stay hotel gurupriya ....... Loved my stay ..... Room very clean Washroom also clean thank you
As soon as we checked in, they took us to the nasty room where room is full of smoke smell. The pillow covers and blankets were in yellow color(should hv been washed two three months ago) after complaining they did change the pillow cover but not the bed cover.. The service was so worst, the guy was so rude, he is not ready to help us with cleaning glasses which were dirty. !!!!NEVER STAY HERE!!!!!
The best thing about this hotel was the hospitality. They allowed us for early checkin and helped us plan our itinerary. Also we were extremely satisfied with the driver they provided us for the sight-seeing. Also the in-house food service was quite good. However what I did not like were the rooms.....though they were clean and well-maintained....they looked a bit damp and I did not much like the ventilation. Even in the middle of the day not much sunlight came into the room. If you are a group of friends looking for a budget stay and this does not bother you that much then go for this hotel for other than this particular issue everything else seemed fine.
Whatelse could i say "feel at home stay" Had been with a group of 60 people from office to kodaikanal, we booked around 20 rooms at gurupriya for our stay. We had been there for two days and it was a pleasent stay. We had asked them to arrange food aswell. The quality and taste of food they provided was so good. They provided us with lavish breakfast , lunch and dinner menu. I would say that they provide the best for the price we pay be it accomodation/food from their kitchen " do not miss their poori, tomato onion kara chutney , aloo gobi dry , roti and esp. rasam" . The rooms are spacious they are well maintained,neat and tidy. The property is located very close to the lake and at the heart of the town. The staff are so friendly. Manager of the property Mr shiva ensures that the guests are taken good care. Mr Palani who was taking care of the kitchen ensured that he provided us tasty and good food. They arranged us campfire at the terrace along with dinner, we had a great time singing and dancing around. I would simply say gurupriya is a best budget hotel one could think of a pleasent stay at kodaikanal. And now I realise why they named it gurupriya I would say they are gurus in hospitality and you will feel like at home. Cheers Gautam…
The stay in Sep 2018 in this hotel was very pleasant. The staffs are friendly and supportive. The room is big and bathroom is very big. Neatly maintained room. The food was very good in veg and non-veg. The delivery time for the food also quick. The staff is very kind enough to give 1 hour of delayed checkout. Definitely will recommend to friends.
The hotel room on the groundfloor was moderate, and adequately furnished. The bathrooms were ok, and clean. The stay that we had for one night was hasslefree. Checkin and checkout was quick. The complimentary breakfast was good.
We was in Kodikanal during Christmas time( peak season) and ended up staying at this property. this was recommended by our Driver. One of the worst hotel we stayed ever. The room service staff was very arrogant and not helpful. No hospitality at all. Hot water only available for evening to morning. Very bad experience.
