It was a pleasant stay with a good view of the Kodai lake and a wonderful Lawn near by my room.
Pros:
1. Room with all necessary amenities.
2. Food was great at both buffet and al-carte restaurants.
2. Wonderful staff.(House keeping, activity center and Front desk).
Cons:
1. Very boring activities in evenings.
2. Overpriced for some indoor activities which is not all worth for the money. Suggestion-Definitely they have to entertain guest with some innovative ideas and should not charge for the indoor games.

Been here couple of times (1990, 1997, 2003, 2005) and every year the standard of service and human interaction is going good to bad and will reach worst very soon.

Ordered for breakfast around 9:45 reminded by 12:45 pm and where sorry that they forgot as there was many check-out at that time, what my breakfast got to do with many check-out in the resort? Enquirer made about vagarious activity in Holiday activities was not responded or fallowed up?

Room no 305 was allotted and was last in the property and the sewage pipes were ending in the bathroom, was stinking and asked for a different room, was denied as it was fully booked and was given a bottle of white phenol to be used when ever the stench from bathroom is in bearable in the living room. The Furniture in living room was not either ascetic or functional or utility, the Sofa cum bed, you can neither sit or sleep comfortable more than 10 minutes.

The resort is away from the main city area, but near the lake. The resort is at the perfect place of Kodai. You can go to lack just by walking. The resort looks different than in pictures, but much better than it looks. Rooms, facilities are good. Holiday activities on a daily basis and very interesting. Best of all, the hotel ambience. Loved it.

Ambiance is very good. Excellent strategic location. Very near to the town, can have a good walk round the lake. But food is so & so, very costly also. Manager was untraceable. Not Pro active I thought. But overall it was a pleasant stay. There are areas which need improvement like providing Wifi every where instead of only at the entrance of the resort reception

It was good, very comfortable and relaxing. Wish to visit again. The chef was excellent, he cooked very good food. The room service should be better for comfort. The window view should be better, there should be a guide to take us. We got complimentary gifts eg: spa, massage etc.

The place was pleasantly well maintained and swank. Location is very convenient and affords easy access into Kodaikanal proper. Food was tasty and elaborately listed. Very relaxing to make a quick short get away and indulge in the comfort offered and recharge.

This hotel is really vast and is excellent in it's facilities. In a trip to a place like Kodaikanal, it truly deserves a whole day devoted to this hotel. Overall, I would say it's been a marvelous experience. Though this hotel is quite pricey, it is worth it with all different social & gaming activities accompanied with a good & polite staff.

Sterling Kodaikanal is one of the best places to visit in terms of location, amenities and type of accommodation. Only problem with Sterling group is that, the services are of average quality and any order of room service takes too long to reach you cottage, sometimes even the food gets cold while reaching.
