The best hotel of the hill station for me, located around the lake. Very well maintained rooms with complete cleanliness and great service. The staff are well trained and always greets with a warm smile. The buffet breakfast was good. Would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Kodaikanal.

This is the best hotel with a wonderful view of Kodai Lake. Location of this hotel is a plus as it is just adjacent to the lake. The buffet breakfast and dinner are very good. The chefs should continue to keep up the good work.

Room service is quick and waiters were friendly and helpful. Hospitality is good. Spa is available and we need to book an appointment in advance. Would recommend this place for relaxing and comfortable stay.

Was amazed by the service of the staff, to be honest have never seen more friendly staff before (Though I am not a great traveller, have visited quite a few places to make this comment). Everything was satisfying, the way the support team cared for baby food and other services in general was so pleasing!! The only thing that was slightly odd was the couch that was in the room - It was actually sofa come bed which was not that comfortable.

Good location, excellent food, clean rooms. This place will beat anyone's expectations. Starting from the reception staff, restaurant staff were very polite and we were taken with good- candle light dinner was admirable. The rooms have been well maintained. There is a view great view from the balcony. Most amazing is the garden is wonderful and refreshing.

Awesome experience. No issues at all. Check-in to Check out was memorable without any hiccups. Service was exemplary. One of the minor glitches, is lack of a microwave Owen in the rooms. So re-heating was an issue all the time. Nevertheless, would love to come again and again.

The hotel was located conveniently. The hotel was located in the city. The hotel was very near from the bus stand. The staffs in the hotel were helpful, friendly and hygienic. They were quick in attending the requests. The appearance of the hotel was classic. I had no delay in check in and checkout. I was happy with the room given to me. It was good. Lake view was seen from my room. The room was cleaned regularly. Hot water facility was provided all the time. Both veg and non veg food was served in the hotel. The price for the food was reasonable. The hotel had provided the activities. I went there with my family. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family. The hotel was worth for money.

I travelled to Kodaikanal in the month of March 2015 and stayed in this hotel. It was convenient to locate the hotel and it was close to the city. The staff members in the hotel were helpful, friendly and quick in services. There was no delay in check in and checkout. The room allotted to me was spacious and it was well maintained with all required amenities in working condition. The internal and external appearance of the hotel was classic. There was a lake view from the hotel room. I ate food in the hotel and it was good in quality and taste, and the price was affordable. Overall, the destination and stay in the hotel was good and I will recommend this hotel to other travellers.
