We went to Kodai by the Lake Hotel for celebrating our 50th Anniversary. However, we were disappointed as the standard room was so small, that we thought we are in Japan. We had 3 days booking but we left within two days. We will not recommend this hotel.

Excellent location, near the lake. Food is good. Nice cottages and it's clean. View is very good. There was warmth in their welcome. Very personalised attention. Enough parking for self drive. Very good for kids as well. Sightseeing arranged by the resort at very minimal amount.

Excellent rooms to stay with family, lovable environment, very close to Lake and very much silent place. Rooms are very clean and they have improved from previous visits. Food and restaurant is very good. They take care very well, organise the trip if required. They have a lot of fun and activities so that children will go and enjoy themself in the space provided for that.

I had gone with my family for the holiday. The resort is located very near the lake. It has good view. One would be quiet impressed with the architecture of the building and the facade. Our stay was well organized. The reception staff, the restaurant staff all were very hospitable. Rooms were well maintained and upkeep of the rooms was excellent. Food was good and the chefs were very responsive. Overall was stay was excellent.

Sterling Kodai by the lake is just a beauty of Kodaikanal where you can get involved with nature and get yourself relaxed and refreshed by the views of the resort. When a person who visits sterling kodai will be eagerly waiting for a next holiday in the same place.

The destination was so good and the climate was so pleasant that my family had enjoyed a lot in the resort since it was so excellent. The rooms were neat and clean and the appearance was so good. The staff at the reception greeted me well and they also provided me an welcome drink. The restaurant was good and the food was ok. The housekeeping staff were so helpful and they kept the rooms always clean when we returned to our rooms. The overall experience was very good
