Pathetic, Dirty, Stinky, Illiterate Service, Bad Food! And everything what horror is made of!
The floor always remain dirty! People dnt know any language other than tamil. Service is slow.
That doesn't end my horror stay there. I was greeted with a stinky towel, torn bed sheets, broken shower, not working flushes!! Wish I could give it no star! I literally ran from kodaikanal coz of this hotel! Skip this! Send these ppl to court! Sue them! Don't don't don't! Or maybe plz do visit this hotel to find out wat bad dreams are made of!

It was such a horrible experience! We (two families) booked the hotel room in one month advance. We reached around 11 PM (due to some direction loss on the way), but there were only a few useless and arrogant ward boys to receive us at the reception counter. More important, we were put in a much cheaper low quality hotel opposit to this hotel (due to apparant 'over-booking' problem). The justification given to us was that the opposit hotel was also their hotel only (utter nonsense....that hotel is called "Raaja Purnima Residency" and is a much uglier and cheaper hotel). We had no option since we were late in the night and had paid the advance money as well. There was no food arrangement for us either. We had to shever the entire night with utter cold (it was November) with no food. Moreover, the hotel manager had no sympathy to even take our call in the night. After a lot of struggle and fight, we were given the towels and soap in the room by the helper boy. However, the manager collected the money for his hotel (which is much more expensive) and that too by applying force through his rowdy gang! Of course our trip was completely spoiled with this ugly experience. It is a total shame for such hotels to exist in our country (we don't know how and why it ever got a star rating). It is highly recommended not to even think about this hotel.

Room Tip: Do not even think about booking rooms in this hotel, there are much better options.

we have been to the said hotel. It is star rated hotel having good facilities like sports activities, bar, excellent rooms, interiors, lush green garden, you can see 24x7 water fall from your room. The staff is very polite, helping. Restarunt is very good. Food quality is also good, You can get all kind of menu items. If given the opportunity we will again stay in the said hotel.

Room Tip: Any room you can choose.

the hotel manager is very impolite , no proper response , there is no cleaniness and i dont recomend anyone even to step into this hotel. it is a matter of great disgrace to our nation to accept this as a 3 star hotel where has it cannot even be given the ranking of 1 *. terrible experience, lot of flies, rooms very untidy, gutter with sewage water flowing very next to balcony. response is very poor in all aspects and also not to book thru make my trip for future deals. this is my sincere advice to each and everyone as the online payment made thru make my trip was not confirmed by this hotel and had to make numerous calls to the hotel and make my trip for confirming the booking and after all this the hotel is not up to the mark for stay.
