I used to visit Fernhill every year because of its location and ambiance. Very delicious food and reasonable price. As a member of Sterling Holidays, the discount they offered did not permit me go anywhere to have dinner except in Fernhill. The staff from gardener to manager were very polite and they use to say 'Good morning' or any wish whenever they see us. It's a very good practice in a Resort. I want to give one suggestion to any inmates that stay back in Resort and enjoy the stay instead of going around in the traffic.

The hotel is placed in a very beautiful locality with a beautiful view of the lake. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The smaller rooms can be kept better. The staff are very courteous and keep up the good work. The activity was very good and kids enjoyed a lot.

Oh wow. I'm so much excited to recollect my memories about the stay at Kodai, by the late sterling resorts. Starting from the front office who welcomed us wit a warm drink in that cold weather to the green peace, and chill ambiance, I liked the whole trip. Actually we(me and my hubby ) liked it. The way the housekeeping people decorated our room was awesome. After all that was our honeymoon trip, which we will cherish all through our lives. People over there were kind enough to click pictures of me and my hubby. I really want to thank them. Fortunately, our trip was during Karva chaud which I celebrated with my husband for the first time. Activity centre people made good arrangements which I liked the most. We even played games which made our love grow deep. Last but not least food, one of the most interesting, tasty and economic buffet packages I have ever had in my life. Looking forward for another such trip with my better half.

I stayed in this Lake View hotel with my family for relaxation purpose. It was convenient to locate the hotel and it was easy to reach, and the surrounding of the hotel was good. The interior and exterior appearance of the hotel was good. The rooms in this hotel were spacious, neat, clean and with required amenities all in working condition. I ate food in this hotel restaurant, it was tasty and the price was reasonable too. There was no delay in check-in and check-out process as it was done on time. There were no activities, which were happing in the hotel. The stay was good, it was value for money, and I will recommend to other travellers.

Purpose of my visit was purely for relaxation and to spend leisure time with my friends. And I should say that in the selection of resort I didn't made any mistake.

The first thing about the resort was that the location is really awesome. Its really near to the Kodai Lake which is the main spot of Kodaikanal. And also the view from the hotel is directly to the lake. The time we reached the resort was about early morning before the sunrise, since only little time was remaining for the sun rise we waited and it was simply awesome scenery we captured. The lake, sunrise, the mist all together that sunrise watching made us refresh and leaving all the tiredness of the journey from Kochi.

Also the holiday activities provided by the resort was good, they provided many in-room games like caroms, chess and also outdoor games like archery. The ambiance which I felt there was superb, really calm, refreshing also should say about the staffs, they were so helping that they helped with our day planning.I recommend this resort for anyone who is travelling to Kodaikanal whose intention is to have a good relaxation time.

Good location next to Kodai Lake and has good amenities. Value for money. Rooms are clean. If you do not have a vehicle and want to go to shops, it is little bit of walking distance from the resort. If But excellent renovation has done by the hotel operators currently. The staff is very courteous and good. Can recommend to friends.

A good place to be with family in Kodaikanal! Closer to all your needs. Food spread needs some improvement but was good. Travel desk was helpful and the real fun was with campfire and music and dance. Enjoyed it! Have a look at the room before finalizing yours. There are several options and Sterling members have a limitation as to which room they can take. However, if you are a non-member then you have an option (of course it depends on your budget too). Helpful hospitality staff. All in all a pleasant experience for us!
