We visited Kodaikanal to relax and stayed at Hotel Grand Palace. The stay was overall very enjoyable and we faced no problems. The breakfast buffet suited our taste and was good. However non vegetarian food was not available for lunch. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodative. There were no special facilities like swimming pool or gym etc.

I visited Kodaikanal several times & enjoyed it. The lake was good & surroundings were awesome. It is my favourite destination. Hotel rooms were neat & clean reception & hospitality was the best. Restaurant was good, but non-veg should be added.

Good place to stay in Kodaikanal. Centrally placed & rooms were very clean and neat. Service was also very good and decent. They were very kind to the customers & guided them well in site seeing. Food and hospitality was good and worth for money. They will arrange transport facility for site view.

Mind-blowing rooms at cheap rate. Good scenery, food at cheap rate, and service is also excellent. Reception staff behaviour is excellent and hotel position is in city only. Altogether good atmosphere. Hotel appearance is also great. Reception looks good.

The hotel is very near to the Kodaikanal bus stand. So there is hardly any problem in reaching the place, even if you're tired from the long bus journey.

The hotel looks really good from outside and is well maintained. Has good interiors and a big lobby. The rooms are decent, not very luxurious but not small too. The staff is okay. The room service is not good, you need to call thrice. The glasses in rooms do not change even after room cleaning. Leaving these minor setbacks.. The hotel is good. The view is really amazing and the whether makes it even more beautiful. The hotel has family cottages for those who want yo go as a big group. Hot water comes twice in a day.

The food is not so good. You should not rely on hotel food. The breakfast is complimentary but not very good. You have it because you do not have any other option in the morning. The main market is around a mile away so you need not worry much about lunch and dinner.

In the end who cares. The place is too damn amazing to think about all this. Just need to have a place to crash in the night. And this place perfectly does the job.

We arrived at hotel Grand Palace at around 2 pm after a long tiring drive from Bangalore. The staff were very friendly and showed us to our rooms. As our room was facing back, unfortunately there was no view. We were disheartened and expressed our concern to the staff. The staff was very kind and helpful, they immediately shifted us to the family cottage which had a nice balcony and view. They did not charge us extra for this.

The family cottage was nice and very comfortable. The rooms were very clean and service was good. We were also given complimentary breakfast for the two days we stayed and the food was brilliant.

The only issue we faced with the hotel was the limited parking space. Since it was holiday season, the hotel was almost fully occupied and parking was a problem. Nevertheless, the security guard and staff helped us park our car in a safe place outside. We woke up early the next day as we wanted to go to Coacher's Walk at 6 am.

The location of the hotel was very good. Though some hotels had a better view, the location of Grand Palace was such that it was literally near to all the tourist attractions. It was very near the lake, coacher's walk, the market and the garden. Not too far from the connecting ghat roads, we were able to go to places such as dolphins nose (trekking) also easily.

Overall we had a very nice trip in Kodaikanal, and our stay at Hotel Grand Palace was excellent. All facilities were available or arranged. Staff was very friendly. The best part is that the hotel was not too expensive.

We were a group of friends who had went for a college trip in the second week of April. On reaching the hotel we found out that out of 3 rooms none of them were ready and it took them 1 hour to give us just 1 room. 9 people standing with bags in their lobby, it was pathetic. Room size is pretty small and even basic necessities like water had to be asked. The restaurant is pretty average and hotel staff is unprofessional and border line rude. The only thing going for this hotel is it's location that it is closely situated to the lake but that's the case with most of the hotels here. I would strongly recommend tourists to try out other hotels.

The stay in hotel was awesome. Staff of hotel was polite. Service given by hotel people was also excellent. Hotel interior was also excellent. But had some problem with staff language. They didnít arranged buffet breakfast every day, only when members were more they arrange buffet breakfast, but the breakfast was excellent.

I'm very disappointed by the hotel services and poor hospitality. They even don't give me drinking water such a worst service. We use go by private cab they don't provide blanket for drivers no hot water facility in the morning. It is available after 8'O clock.
