Hotel Sunrise
Ranked #39 of 105 Kodaikanal B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 May 2011

Hotel sunrise is located at a place which can be said to be straight from the heaven. A picturesque location with equally luxurious hotel. One can literally see clouds coming into your room from the beautiful valley outside...Awesome view from the rooms, this is the best place where you enjoy the nature and awesome hospitality
Travel desk can help you organize various trip to places in and around kodai. The restaurant there serves delicious food. Overall a very nice place to relax at a reasonable rate.

If you are traveling with your kids or looking for a romantic holiday, then this is the best place to stay. Am sure i will suggest this hotel to every friend of mine...

The Rooms were very new and clean and a very spectacular view from the balcony of the room(put up a photo) and the best part is they got a decent parking lot hard to find in hotels at the heart of the city in kodaikanal. Main shopping market is just a walk away from this hotel. There wasn't a restaurant though. Price was mid range- guess it wud filter disturbing crowd.

We stayed at Hotel Sunrise for 3 days in super deluxe room. Its a comparatively new hotel. Overall it was a good experience. A good location though we missed sunrise from the window.

Plus:
Room was very nice with a mini lcd tv and good ambiance.
Restroom was quite clean .
5 min walk from the bus stand and market place, restaurants, still very calm place.
Good view from the room.
Good staff.

Minus:
Dont have the restaurant, we were givwn a non-veg dish on the order of veg one.
They told us that they are planning for a new restaurantn in Jan 2011.
Its not the best service one can look for. Still manageable.

Value for money: A bit overpriced

We were happy of our choice after roaming around the town and seeing the hotels which we didnt book on their reviews. Sunrise had a couple of good reviews and hope this is the 3rd one :)

My family (Myself, wife and daughter) decided to visit Kodaikanal from 13th November 2010 to 16th November 2010. Being the first trip to Kodaikanal with family I wanted to ensure that the trip is memorable in all aspects. My friend has suggested Hotel Sunrise at Kodaikanal to have a pleasant stay. He had booked a room for us thru phone. We boarded Pandian Express from Chennai Egmore on 12th November 2010 at 9:15 PM. We reached Madurai at 5:45 AM on 13th November 2010. After visiting to the famous Meenakshi Amman Temple we headed towards Kodaikanal in a Tata Indica. KodaiKanal is 120 kms from Madurai. We had reached Hotel Sunrise at 3:40 PM. being off season the check in /out were 24hrs.

We had a look at the rooms and preferred a room (#202) at first floor. The main door had no option for manual lock. We were given a key with a plastic stick which is inserted in a hub located inside the room to illuminate the room. The room was spacious and also had a separate balcony. The valley view from the balcony was absolutely fantastic. The room was equipped with LCT television and telephone facility. The bed was very neatly maintained. There was no separate restaurant in the hotel. However the food was supplied in the room on need basis. We went out to visit the Kodai Lake and the brynt Park. We preferred to have our dinner outside at restaurant of our choice. We were back in the room by 8:00PM. We were told that the bathing area in the room had 24hrs hot water facility. However to our surprise the tap water was cold.

Upon calling at reception a staff member immediately came to room to check and requested some time to sort the problem. After 30 minutes the situation was status quo. Upon calling the reception again the staff had another check and requested for some more time to solve the problem. Being the first day at the hotel facing the hot water issue I was not happy initially. However the hotel staff came again to check the status and confirmed that hot water is available that way the hotel staff was very responsive and courteous. We had a very good sleep in the night. At 6:00AM in the morning my wife went to balcony and called me to have a stunning view of the Sunrise. This was a fantastic view with lots of cloud and fog around with soothing chillness. We had good hot water bath in the morning.

We had requested the receptionist to change the bed cover and towels. The receptionist requested us to provide the keys and proposed to take care of the room in our absence. We preferred not to provide the keys and requested to send the support staff immediately. We were told that at 9:30AM the bed cover and towels will be provided. This was done properly. However when we came back to the room we found that water flow was slow in the taps. Upon requesting the staff twice in 15 minutes interval the water flow was restored. Next day morning we had again enjoyed the valley and sunrise view right from our separate balcony. Overall we had a pleasant stay in the Hotel for all three days. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

The old Sunrise has been demolished and this new one built in the same location overlooking the valley. After looking at 5 hotels in the 1000-2000IRP range this one stood out by a mile - many of the hotels around US$50 in Kodai are grubby and dirty. The spacious rooms here were new and clean with quality beds and fittings, and each with a private balcony with chairs and table overlooking the valley. Flat screen TV on the wall for when its raining. For 2000 rupees this was very good value -a good find.
