“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2012

I stayed with my family in April 2012. We rented two royal suits. There was a little delay in preparing the rooms due to certain maintenance activities but they gave us temporary rooms for the short period. Apart from that it was all very good. I found the staff very professional especially the restaurant staff. You can enjoy the complementary food if you have taste for south Indian dishes. We went for their night safari. Many thanks to the driver who took us to places where we could get a good look at the wild buffallows. Overall it was a good stay and value for money.

>>We took a Weekender package. There was some confusion while booking it online. So we had to book a Royal Suite room and pay the balance amount after reaching there. Though we were told it was updated to Weekender's package, we had to remind the staff that we have taken the package before we took any service like Bed Coffee/Tea, Fruits, Mineral Water, Food..
>>Make sure you confirm after booking and remind once you reach there as well about it.
>>Food can be rated as 3/5
>>The Royal suite room had a bed room with tv and panel heater, living room wit tv and bathroom. The panel heater was not at all efficient.
>>Because of the weather, room had a moist smell. We asked for Room Freshener which we never got.
>>The hotel is around 2.5 kms from bus stand. There is a hill behind the hotel. Its good to watch.
>>Inside the JC Residency, there is a small play area for kids and a lawn. They have had a small zoo there with Emu, some kind of fowls, duck. Its nice to watch them.
>>the package had sightseeing of around 10-15 places. But more could have been added. they had provided a private car. that was good.
>>The royal suite had 2 TVs. both were with reliance dish. it was not recharged when we went there. so they recharged one of them. so we had tv in the room working and not in the living room.
>> Though the surroundings of hotel is not so good, it is well maintained inside.A good place actually.
>> But overall a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: The rooms behind are much better. Though there is a sewage behind, it does not make that much differ...

We stayed for two day during April.2012 and had a very pleasant stay.
Food : Breakfast and dinner were complimentary and were great.Good spread of food
Stay : Nice ,spacious and comfy rooms with TV,hot water running and neatly maintained
Locations : Around 1.5-2KM from Kodai Lake ,much silent and initially was bit tough to locate .But reachable by all places.
Staff : Cordial and friendly.Served on time and helpful.
Parking: Ample parking space and no need to worry about parked vehicle since its is well inside the compounds
Verdict : Good budget and pleaseant stay.Certainly encourage ppl to stay here.Feels like a resort with all the facilities provided like children play area and some birds.

Room Tip: Higher floors have good view outside and more sunnier.

I Stayed at JC Residency Kodaikanal for about 2days between March 15 - March 17 2012. Our Stay was Excellent in every sense. The Service provided by Reception and housekeeping were good. The Room that we stayed was clean and had a LCD TV too. The food at their restaurant was excellent - especially for Vegeterians. JC residency also has facilities to play Indoor Games like TT and Carrom. Overall it is ideal place for Family and Honeymooners too.
