“A VERY BAD EXPERIENCE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2010

We never knew about this hotel.... we got a call through a travelers called (AJ INTERLINKS)(FRAUDS).......... who told us to invest money, to give us various options of summer vacations... after paying the money we, heard that they r cheating the people... so we told them to give us a stay rite away...... they gave us all far destinations..... finally we selected kodaikanal....... they booked this hotel for us... we had to spend more than wat we paid..... it is very very far from the lake........ each time, u need to spend 200 rs just for going to the main center area and 200 rs back.... so totally 400 rs to and fro.. for each visit...... since we paid the money we had no options of staying there for 7 nights... u have to get back to the hotel, before it gets dark, because the way to the hotel road is open and it does not have a fence to.... if ur cab driver misses u would go directly to the bottom of kodai..... u will loose ur life..... it is a very good place as a sucied point.......
the receptionist mr. pradeep, was named all -in -all by us....... if we call the reception he will be in the kitchen cooking.... if we call the kitchen........ he will be serving food....... there was only three staffs and we were their only guests........ it is too lonely in the nights...... it will be like a haunted place in the night....... plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz do not stay in that hotel..... i think they would have closed the hotel by now........ there was no water in the room....

THE ONLY PLUS POINT IN THAT HOTEL WAS, IT HAD A GOOD VIEW.....

The location of the hotel is little far away from Kodai City therefore we could escape the noise and hustle of the city. The view from the hotel balcony is very beautiful I dont think anyone can get a better view from any other hotel. The food was okay but the service needs to be more prompt.

The hotel looks fine from the outside, but absolutely run down from the inside. The fresh coat of exterioir paint can decieve the untrained eye. Firstly it's not in the main city. It's a few kilometers down a narrow path, down which one needs luck if a construction truck is not blocking your route, the right wheels perilously clingling to grass atop a valley while the drives accelerates to keep the car ground zero. The gas cylinder cycle however manages to over take with one leg on your tyre!

The rooms are dirty, unkept and cold. Room service is limited with the kitcken operating for a few hours in the morning and evening.

one is totataly left to the mercy of the ward boys, who if you don't tip, could'nt care less if you starved to death, bathe in cold water or ward away flies with bedsheets.

The pillows are damp and creases from the previous guest spills over the sheets can make your holiday or business an unforgetable experience.

To summarize top 5 donot haves':

1. No hot water in the bath
2. No soap
3. unchanged sheets and pillows
4. dirty floors with accumulated food over previous guest visits.
5. no in room internet service

things i liked
a) great valle view( palani hills) the hotel is on the edge of a hill so gives agreat view of the valley.. Most of the rooms have a super sized balcony which makes it a comfotable viewing point.

b) room- room size was pretty big and had a comfortable bed.Bathroom was neat and there is consisitent flow of hot water( takes some time to kick in though).Housekeeping also ensured it stayed clean and comfortable.

c) food quality- all the dishes available were above average( except some problems with breakfast) and decently priced in a overpriced town otherwise.

things that were a pain!

a) far from the lake!-the hotel is around4 km away from the lake which is the center of the town. Be ready to pay Rs60-150 for a one way trip.

b) Bufet breakfast needs to improve_ eggs were only available every alternate day. Sambhar would be cold .

c)items not availble from menu- lot of items from the menu is not available( a la carte). its a disappointment since they advertsie their resturant and "24 hour" room service so much

  • Liked — sceneic view from the rooms
  • Disliked — far away from the center of the town-lack of connectivity options
