I went there for five days for enjoying holidays with my family. Its a good place to stay. Nice rooms and good location except for night. Helps desk was not so helpful but overall I enjoyed stay there. When I reached hotel at around 1 am in night. No one was there to pick my luggage. Same was the case when I left. I called 4-5 times to checkout finally I have to carry my luggage out. But location was too good, environment was super cool. Very near to lake but gate of lake was far away. Even market was little bit away. Overall I enjoyed staying there. I didn't had food there so cant comment on that.

The hotel Sterling in Kodaikanal lake is beautifully placed near the lake and the viewing angle is so good. The accommodation, food, hospitality, security, room, service are very good in this hotel. The rooms are really high class, the gardens are also nicely carved. It's near the lake so we can feel the nature closely related to our heart so don't miss the place enjoy it.

Indoor games activity was arranged by the hotel. I went this place in May month with my family. Kodaikkenal destination is relaxed and nice place for visitors.

I stayed there for three days. Location, appearance, booking, service, food, and activities were very good there. Kodaikanal is an excellent place as a tourist place. I visited there with group in December. It was both relaxed and adventurous kind of holiday. It is a recommendable hotel to all.

We stayed in Kodai Resort, Kodiakanal during 2nd to 5th February 2014 (3 nights) during our visit to South India. It was a wonderful stay in all aspects - From first impression at the entry and ambiance to the services including breakfast were excellent. Children had enough space in open and the indoor game room within the safe boundary of the resort to remain busy with no worries for us parents. They enjoyed the company of the birds maintained there, especially the Emu. The ambiance in is very relaxing with lots of trees of local fruits like plums etc. Add the fun of camp-fire with music in the night. It is best value for money in the range.

Four of us stayed for two nights and three days in this lovely property. Everything was great except food taste & quality. Vessels were dirty, plate warmers out of order. We could smell non-veg out of veg items. I guess their restaurant was short staffed & hence the quality was very bad.

My spouse got stomach infection after eating non-veg & our holiday was ruined. Staff was helpful but next day also plates & glasses were smelly. Food taste also was not great, limited options in buffet. Would like to stay there but definitely NOT eat there.

The resort is very welcoming and it is very colorful with wide variety of flowering plants and trees. Best thing about the resort is, it has a large swimming pool, play area for kids and library. All the people working there were very friendly and courteous. But the small insects around the gardens were little bit irritating especially if you are going with small kids. Resort maintenance people should take care of it, I feel for a pleasant stay.

The resort has big space to roam around and kids can play in the garden during the day time. Rooms are big and very spacious. The furniture in the room is well maintained and looks new. Bed sheets are very new and clean. There is beautiful garden surrounding the resort. The staff is not that efficient in service and I think they lack a bit in room service. Food is average.

I am from Coimbatore and I had been in this hotel in the month of May 2014 along with my family. The service was good and staff behaviour was well-behaved. The hotel had a restaurant with veg and non veg food. The room had a facility like a geyser, fridge, etc. But I had a problem with the power, it was very low voltage. I travelled by my own vehicle and parking space was available. It is recommendable to others.
