Went there in December '16, it was really quite and calm. It has a breathtaking view since it is constructed on a cliff. On one side is Kerala, on the other is Tamil Nadu. It's a good place to stay. Enjoyed it a lot.

We stayed here about 15 years back as young back-packing travelers - only because of the great views this place offers. This time travelling with family, we decided to again come back here simply for those great breathtaking views - and we're so glad we did. The place is not too far away from the Bus Stand (less than a...

If you really want that view which will blow you away, this is one of the places in Kodai you need to look into. We did not enjoy the food which is purely personal. We took a deluxe room which came with a carpet since the temperature was very cold. Apart from that the staff is okay and they don't...

We loved the view from the room both in the night and early morning. Staff were friendly. Saw bisons in the property both night and day. We didn't try their food but next time we will. Must stay place in Kodai.

This place has some great things going for it, most notably the view. My room (double room with small boiler for 24h hot water) was comfortable enough, but I'd been happy with a smaller and cheaper room if it hadn't been for the lack of hot water. Breakfast wasn't the best (weak coffee, bad jam with toast), but included in...

Me and my husband stayed here for a day. We seriously regretted for not staying here more than a day. Rooms are simple with basic amenities. No luxurious things. But the scenic view Outside room was just mesmerizing. Food was good. Management people were v friendly and we had a v.pleasant stay here.
