I went to kodaikanal for anniversary but we had not booked any hotel as we wanted to check the rooms and hygiene before we booked one so we decided, I shall reach Kodai and then decide which hotel we want to stay in. WE saw 5-6 hotels, since it was Valentine weekend, most 5 star rated (read expensive) hotels were full. We saw some cheaper ones too, but they were either in the darker lanes down or the rooms weren't satisfactory or the people already occupying were terrifying. This one was next to the bus stand, has a dominoes on ground, a coffee day in next building and the lake is 5-10 minutes walk from there. We booked the honeymoon suite, it was nice, a big bed, a small sitting area near the door, a tub in bathroom and server hot water to drink.
Another factor to pick this place was there were lot of people inside, the hotel I must say is quite big, we saw a group of middle aged women staying, a group of college students visiting as well. Thus were sure about the place being decent, as a hotel that we saw seem deserted, had construction going on and, the special entrance it had to the cottage was scary..
They offer travel packages to visit the place in the day. On a little insisting, the manager also gave us some discount. ;)
Most of all I loved that we could walk around the place and never have to search for it as it was close to everything and in case we lost our way, we could take a taxi to bus stop and reach the hotel back.
The staff was polite, though we did not eat the hotel's restaurant, they did have a 24 hour restaurant.
