“FAILED EXPECTATION”
Reviewed 11 June 2009

Recently, i went to kodaikanal to spend a holiday with my family. Myself and my friends family went together. We were looking for a decent hotel at a moderate price. we had already made an advance booking for two double bed room. We planned to stay in kodai for three days.
We reached there and we saw the rooms and selected our rooms. The hotel staff were nice. We wanted to see the deluxe rooms but none was availbale. Initially, the rooms were looking good. But after staying for a while we noticed that the rooms are not well maintained. I would personally rate it below average. The rooms were badly lit and furnishings were not that good. I would say that for bachelors that room would be ok but again the rates were high when comapared to the standard of the rooms.
On a scale of 1-5 i would give a rating of 2.5 for the rooms we stayed. Ofcourse i havn't had the chance to see the deluxe rooms so i could not comment on that. And one thing i forgot to mention is that the environment around the hotel is also not great as there were foul smell of drainage were there.
In on line my advice would be "use it as transit camp and in extreme emergency".

  • Liked — its location. Located in the heart of the city near the bus stand
  • Disliked — rooms are badly lit. There were no tube lights inside the room. There were only 2 CFL bulbs
  • Stayed June 2009, travelled with family
