“Very Very Bad experience ever had in my Life. Complete my travel was screwed,”
Reviewed 14 April 2009

Very Very Bad experience ever had in my Life. Complete my travel was screwed,

I have searched on line for the hotel in Kodai, but could not find any. Then i have called one of the Travels person, whose name is SIBI. Initially they played good game with me. For 2 day he told me that there is no room available, but in the last movement he called me and told he got the room, it a resort and very good one. Initially he told it will be Rs 3400 for 2 days stay. I thought ok for 2 days its fine. But after 4 hours he called me and told the rate he told was for one day not for 2 days, then i told just cancel the room booking i dont want to go to Kodai. Then he told i will check and come back to you. after some time he called and told me there is one more room in Highland Parade. but the charges will be 2500 per day, and finally he gave me the room for 3400 for 2 days. I have checked it on line the room charges in this hotel is around 1,200 - 1,400.

Hotel location is very good, but the rooms are very bad, its like some Jantha hotel in bangalore, where you dont have a good Toilets, rather rooms are very bad condition. One instance there is no Power cord to charge your mobile, i asked why there is no power cord in the room, answer is this building is very old thats why we dont have power cord. Food was very bad, its one of the worst fool i ever had. Please Please avoid going to this hotel.

hi,

Recommending viewers to to a privileged member of Highland Holiday Homes.

1) Front office staff breifing about the resort was excellent at time of check'd in

2) quality and the Quantity of the food was good,

3) Room price was reasonable accordingly,

4) Facilites like in door games was really impressing,

5) Sight seeing organised by the resort manager had a lot off information about kodaikanal.

6) Very prompt & courteous staff's working, helped us in arranging the things needed.

7)I can strongly recommend the viewers to be member of this resort.

Best Regards,

Abisheik.

Hi,

This is feedback for the Highland holiday homes-Parade
Resort at Kodaikanal.

1. Location is excellent Rooms are good at the price 2. Views from room are good 3. Travel helpdesk is helpful & prompt 4. Hot water arrangement is very good 5. Garden is well maintained 6. Room service worst (A. Spoons not provided with food served to the room, not provided even after repeatedly calling. B. The water was not being sent even called thrice, sent only after shouting on fourth call. C. Towels/soaps were provided only on third request) 7. Food is not good at the price, serving North Indian food should be immediately stopped. 8. No proper communication between resort & Chennai office. (At 5 hrs before starting to the destination, Chennai office called & informed that either you postpone your programme or adjust a day stay somewhere else. Contact person at resort somehow managed the things) 8. Except 2-3, resort attendants hardly understand Hindi/English. 9. Policy of refund is not fair. Just to adjust refund, why we must get your services again? if we don’t wish to? 10. Chennai office condition is bad 11. Best part is that I got a call from company for the feedback. 12. The name Bajaj with the name Bajaj Highland Holiday Homes has nothing to do with the famous Bajaj Group. See the notice from Bajaj group here.[--]
