We four of our family (Myself, wife and two sons) members visited Kodaikanal on a leasure trip. The room (313) provided to us is very spacious with 2(two) twin beds sufficient for accommodating 4(four) person. I was intimated at the time of advance booking that the room will be good for four person and rate quite reasonable. The breakfast is very good with options to choose from but I shall suggest visitors to take lunch or dinner somewhere else as the price and quality does not match but good restaurants are a little away from the Hotel. The hot water is available for limited time only and room service closes by 9/9. 30 pm. Though cable TV is there but mostly south Indian channels with 3 hindi channel with very poor quality viewing available. Very good hotel for People travelling with own conveyance to stay inside city but in quiet environment and with breakfast option at hotel. Secured parking space available

When we entered the township of Kodaikanal, we never had an idea of how our place of stay would be. Around 3 pm after lunch, we were all guided towards hotel grand palace. It was difficult for us to guess from outside, how the interior of your residency would be. But when we stepped in we understood that we have chosen the right place of stay. The reception was quite fascinating. While receiving the room keys we were still curious about how the rooms allotted for us would be. Contrary to our expectation, we saw that the rooms were well designed for a comfortable stay. Spacious cots, cosy mattresses and woollen blankets were apt for that climatic condition. We enjoyed watching TV for few hours with our kids and family members. A hot water bath in the chill morning was also thrilling. We had a nice time in clicking photographs inside as well as outside the hotel. While handing over the key to the reception at the time of departure, we felt sad. But we decided that any time we visit Kodai, we should stay only at grand palace. This stay shall remain as an everlasting memory in our life.
