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.

The resort is very beautiful. The resort does not have a swimming pool but its location is extremely beautiful and compensates for it. The rooms are big, neat and clean, well furnished with small kitchen. Bathrooms have all the necessary utilities. Service was very prompt. Over all hospitality was good. Ideal place to stay with family.

Karaoke evening and food was good. Overall it was very good experience. I stayed there for 3 Days. I would like to do my next trip in 2015 and the duration would be minimum of 1 week.

Reached Sterling Kodai by the Lake on 1st June, 2014. Checked out on 8th June, 2014. Nothing to complain at the resort, except the payasam. Food was excellent. Breakfast was the best. Only hitch was it was a little far away from the main town. Either you walk or take the vehicle. With children the second option was the best. Room Tip: Facing the lake rooms were a good view.

There were no problems with booking service. Hotel is recommendable to all.

We went Kodaikanal and stayed at Sterling by the Lake. Resort is nice. I stayed there for 2-3 days. Food was good. I took only veg food there. Services were excellent. Staff behavior was okay. Rooms were nice. It has all basic amenities as TV, geyser, etc. Any view was not visible from hotel rooms. There was pool, gym, and other facilities available. It is located at about 1 km distance from Kodaikanal city. The location of hotel is fine. Appearance is well-furnished. There were no problems with booking service to get the rooms. Rooms were neat, clean, and spacious. Kodaikanal as a tourist place is beautiful.
