We stayed at The Kudos for two days. The rooms are very spacious. Almost all the rooms have a balcony. The lake view from the property was awesome. The garden and the play area for kids was too good. The complimentary breakfast served was tasty. The owner of the property Mr. Jacob and his team are always ready to help their guests. I thoroughly enjoyed this resort and would definitely visit again. I also recommend this property to everyone.

We had a wonderful and pleasant stay. The staff at the reception were very helpful and friendly. The bon fire was an awesome experience. The location was at the center, very near Kodai lake. The only concern was the key, to the room we stayed in, was not working. But the staff were available all the time to help opening and closing the door. Definitely recommended.

We stayed at the Hotel from 22 December to 25 December. And it was like the best experience we've ever had in Kodaikanal. We can have the best view of the lake from the lawn. The rooms are really very good with a very clean atmosphere. The room service was the most best. They are always present and are eagerly waiting and interested to help their customers. Any food that we ordered in the Hotel was TOTALLY DELICIOUS. They have all the amenities to keep us engaged such as games like Billiards, Carroms, Hand Football, etc. They also have a small library which seems to be really good.Had really fantastic time with family on weekends.. stay is very good as it same as their photos.. Worth to spend good time with your family.

My first review had to start with “the Kudos”, had an amazing time here. Very reasonably priced, this is located not to far away from the bus station. The rooms were clean and very well maintained. Staff were courteous and welcoming. They had breakfast with the package and it was pretty decent. We mostly ordered food or went out but it was slightly overpriced here. The service was great. The best part was that they had a great view from the rooms. Also, a nice garden with the view of the lake to which our doors opened to. They did set up camp fire when we asked for it. And had a variety of indoor games. We left the place satisfied and I would recommend this place to anyone who is visiting Kodaikkanal.

The Kudos is a lovely place to stay in Kodaikanal. Location is bit away from main city centre.. but it offers a nice view of the lake from the rooms. We were allotted two ground floor rooms, the porch of the rooms open to a beautiful garden with exotic flowers. The rooms are large and nice rooms. All basic amenities were provided. The hotel also has a play area with Foosball soccer table, a snooker table, Carrom board, chess etc with a small Library too. The dining area too is big and nice with an option to sit at the garden too. The food is typically brought from outside as per order. The breakfast was nice. The staffs are helpful and courteous. Overall the ambiance, view and stay was enjoyable.

The kudos, is a very nice amble modern build hotels , with nice rooms . The location of the hotel is very good , as it is hardly 500 meters away from lake . The room with balcony have a nice view of the lake. Good for room 101 or 102 with glass balcony. Though they don't have full fledged restaurant, the complimentary breakfast is very good.The owner and the manager himself takes care of the things and feels good.
