"Worst stay ever"

3.5/7
Posted 2 days ago

Had a terrible experience at Sterling by the lake Kodaikanal hotel. Except for the food everything was poor. We expected good view from the room but both rooms view was just a tall compound wall and nothing else. In both the rooms wash basin were cracked. One room did not have shower curtain. Old stained towels were put up in one room. For other....

"Best hotel with good budget "

5.3/7
Posted 3 days ago

Best hotel for good budget but only through Makemytrip and not from reception they can't able to give rooms directly for best price. Room service was very bad they never bought what we asked. Room is also small for the budget they must offer a spacious rooms with balcony. Food offered for dinner does not has variety of different foods very less.

"Rooms didn't appeal much"

4.8/7
Posted 6 days ago

The rooms were looking very good in the website but found out that it was not beautiful in real. The rooms were brightly lit in the website but it was very lowly lit and dull. Had the feeling that it was not worth the price. But everything else was good. Thumbs up for the food, service, holiday activities etc.

"Average hotel but value for money "

5.5/7
Posted 7 days ago

An average rating hotel and can say value for money. We stayed there one night only. Have kids play area and the activity centre and they enjoyed. Room service takes more time. Room was not big. Breakfast items are normal and not much special. We hope Sterling may improve the resort and get more facilities. We can give rateing 7 out of 10.

"Pleasant stay "

5.8/7
Posted 7 days ago

Our family of four had a pleasant stay at the Kodai - by the Lake Resort in April 2016. The resort was well maintained. They had a wide array of activities lined for interested guests and the staff were pleasant and courteous at all times. The Indian section of the menu at the in house restaurant was certainly above average. All in all, a good plac....

"Great location and helpful staff "

7.0/7
Posted 7 days ago

Great location. Very neat rooms. Food is good. Numerous activities for family. Courteous and helpful staff. Sterling Resorts has greatly improved and is now as good as club mahindra. Would recommend the lakeside resort for a longish family vacation. Giving it 5 star rating. Will definitely stay here the next time I vacation at Kodai.

"Nice and comfortable stay "

5.6/7
Posted 8 days ago

More better options at same rate. Little expensive one as compared to other nice hotels there. Otherwise stay was nice and staff is courteous. Breakfast spread was nice and tasty. Many activities are chargeable so in case you are going there after seeing lot many activities available so spare some extra bucks for that.

"A budget hotel & a definite value for money"

5.8/7
Posted 9 days ago

A budget hotel, a definite value for money. And surely it is worth. Kids will love the play area and the activity centre. Only drawback is the service, they take a lot of time. Besides that, the room is a bit old. A special mention on the food- I have never had my stomach so full. I hope they improve the promptness of the staff and renovate the roo....

"Disappointed & not worth for money"

4.8/7
Posted 9 days ago

Paid for extra bed for my kids, but they didn't provide any. Just they converted sofa cum bed. For this, no need to pay extra bed charges. Even they did not provide blanket, after called many times they gave. First day never kept the toiletries properly. Soap and toothpaste was not there. Second day, they kept everything. Is first day free of cost?....
