I had stayed with my family at Hotel Grand Palace for five nights during the month of May 2014. This was the second visit to the hotel after a period of almost 10 years. So I know what to expect from the hotel.

The Good things:

The hotel still looks the same as it was 10 years ago and that is good.
The courtesy extended by the hotel staff is good and my stay was pleasant. There is not much of options for food during the 'season'. They serve buffet during the 'season' time and switch to alacarte during the 'off-season'. But the food is good in both quality and taste. Infact, I felt that buffet method is better during the 'season' time because it reduces the turn-around time at the dining tables and one can spend time at the outdoors rather idling time at the dining if it were alacarte.

The staff even packed dinner for us during my return trip via road. The food and packing (with sufficient paper plates and tissue paper) was good and that is one example. During my visit, there was water scarcity in and around Kodaikanal (most of the hotels depend upon water tankers) and many hotels faced water shortage when the unauthorized water tankers were seized. Fortunately there was not any problem at Grand Palace.

Things to improve:

They have to surely think upon providing free wi-fi connection. Though it is good to be disconnected from internet, office mails etc. Still it might be useful to address any exigencies.
TV remote controls in cottage rooms were not working correctly.

To conclude this is one decent hotel and worth the money spent. Would I think of staying at Grand Palace if I visit Kodaikanal...I think yes...and it might be during an off-season....

I have been there for three days in Grand Palace Hotel. Rooms and the service are good. Price is average. Since during my travel to Kodaikanal, it was a rainy day, I could not go out for the first day. Therefore, I had to stay in Hotel for the full day. I enjoyed a lot even in the hotel. It is a nice hotel.

Grand palace is for good stay but, the serve only veg food. Rooms were good, it suits family and business class and tariff is also ok. It is near by the town and walk able distance to boat house, cycling, horse ride etc. We have to go out for non veg food. Room stay was comfort.

Grand Palace seems to be a good place to stay especially with family. Nice rooms and excellent room services with very good South Indian breakfast. Overall it's a good place to stay, worth for money. One disadvantage I could feel is that we get hot water only on specified timings for Bathing.

The rooms are looking very good with all necessary fittings, but the services like laundry, Wi-Fi connections and pure vegetarian food in good but clean environment are not available. Nothing complimentary was there.

Location was convenient to reach for the people. In the hotel it was awesome experience. The service deserves five star rating. We were satisfied with the location of the hotel. The food was really delicious. The staff behaviour was good.

The rooms were looking very good with all necessary fittings, but the services like laundry, Wi-fi connections, pure vegetarian food in good clean environment were not available. Even self wi-fi system was not working inside the rooms. Insufficient parking space and touring arrangements. Front office dealing should improve.

I had an awesome experience. The service deserves five star rating. Very satisfied with the location of the hotel. The food was really delicious. The staffs behavior was good. The room was clean and tidy. For Kodai lake and market it was just five minutes walking distance. Food quality was good and breakfast was awesome. Nice and affordable place to stay.

Kodaikanal was great. Lake was beautiful. Location of Hotel near the lake was perfect. Hotel was good but did not have activities. Room service was normal. Food was OK. Other amenities like hot water etc had some time limitations. Hotel room was good and accommodation was pleasant.

Kodaikanal is the best location for the family members. Good food can get around the Hotel. Reservations can be made well and advance. Quite far from the Lake. Cycling cannot be engaged around the Hotel, we need to go to the Lake area. Please avoid Guides, apart from the drivers. Drivers can guide you very well.
