The flight was on time. The staff was also good and co-operative. The washroom was really small. The plane was small with a capacity of 100 people. The seat was not that comfortable. There was no food served on the plane so carry your own food with you. Small planes don't fly high and goes to a height of 24000 ft.

My return flight first got postponed and later they cancelled it. I had to come back by a bus, which was really a hectic journey of more than 18 hours. I did not dare to book any of my flight with SpiceJet after this incident. I would like to rate them "Poor".

I visited there in Winters (dec) and it was very cold over there. It's definitely a very good hill station and a very scenic place. Hotel location is also very good. Specially rooms with the balcony on the back side are damn good. You will be mesmerized with morning view from the balcony. It...more »

We started on a family holiday to Kodaikanal. Our journey from Hyderabad to Kovai by flight was cheerful. From Kovai we hired a taxi to reach to Kodai. The undisturbed nature was wonderful in Kodai. Our stay at Kodai was short for two days. As a result we could not enjoy the whole area but it was a life time experience and we the next time we will go for a long visit.

We normally travel by car on all our holidays. The flexibility and convenience it offers is great. If you are a driving freak and passionate about it, it would be an enjoyable experience. The best part is that we don't plan the total number of days and the holiday evolves as we travel. Even in the places we visit, one does not have to scout around for auto, taxi, etc. Another thing is that you don't have to dress up for travel, you can wear any casual clothes or anything comfortable. Finally, if more than 3 people travel, it works out cheaper than any other mode of transport, even if it's a petrol car. We have done so much holidaying by car that the car is like a member of the family.

This was a very good hotel for stay in Kodaikanal. It was centrally located just opposite the bus stand on the Bazar road. Some sightseeing like Bryant Park, Coaker's Walk and even the lake was within walking distance. Being pure vegetarians, we attach lot of value to availability of veg food...more »

I felt very happy to travel with Jet Airways flight. The transport from airport to bus station or city is not convenient. Service is good and seating is very convenient. I am very happy in Jet Airways flight.
