"Overall, an excellent experience"

6.5/7
Posted 6 Dec, 2014

Was looking for a couple of days off after months of non-stop work. Kodaikanal and Sterling turned out to be perfect choices in the end. Everything about Sterling Resort was as well maintained as they could get. The room, the pathway to the room, the bedsheets, the bathroom and the toilet, etc. were all in sparkling good condition. Even the buggy they have for transporting guests and their luggage was really well maintained. The food was "absolutely awesome" - We ordered everything from North Indian to Chinese to International within the five or so meals we had from there. Every single dish was beautifully served, was excellently prepared, with the perfect aroma. If not for the price, I could had carried home parcel for a week from there! Right from the security staff, to the receptionists, to the room service, to the buggy operator - everyone there was very well mannered, courteous and pleasant. It was quite apparent that they've invested well in training their staff in-depth to ensure their guests feel the worth. All amenities advertised online are well and truly available in the resort. Group activities however could have been made more interesting. We did a round of housie one evening, it was OK, but not awesome. They have all the gaming consoles (I saw a PlayStation, an XBox and another I couldn't recognise), in addition to more conventional stuff like caroms, pool, chess, etc. There was also a separate play area for small kids - something my 3-year old daughter absolutely loved. Overall, an excellent experience.

"Good food and hospitality was excellent"

7.0/7
Posted 22 Feb, 2016

I came with my family for holiday trip with enjoyment mood. We had a good experience like the pool was really as big as it has been shown in the photos. We had had comparable room and the staffs were very caring our requests on time. We had a comfortable sleep. Housekeeping service was excellent. The food was good. If any body new to that place they are giving guidance about the place, hotel food etc. Honestly speaking how we came there with the holiday mood same was continuing till reaching our home.

I happened to visit the Sterling Valley View resort, Kodaikanal as a part of my weekend getaway. I was put in the new section of the resort (supposedly called as GRM). The location of the resort is its strength with breath-taking views from all directions.

"The resort looks attractive being situated few kms..."

5.4/7
Posted 1 Jul, 2010

The resort looks attractive being situated few kms away from lake.As the valley view by its name indicates we had fanatastic view of valley at its outskirts.It was a 2 bedroom cottage which was well furnished with tv,sofacum bed for extra persons,cooking utensils,warmer,electronic stove which made our stay comfortable & enjoyable.the room was covered up with suitable curtains in line up with room,wall paintaing colour.One more thing to tell is the food stuffs are bit costlier & more time consuming to be delievered.so we need to travel down near lake for rest of hotels for food to suit our budget & quick delivery.In nutshell we highly enjoyed our pleasurable stay in the resort.

"Good resort to stay with nice activities "

6.0/7
Posted 25 Jan, 2016

Pleasant setting with focus on your enjoyment. That seems to be the focus of this resort. When you reach Kodai, just travel towards the boat club and there are enough signs to guide you to the resort. It's a quaint setting and the rooms are neat and pleasant with groomed pathways. There are even signs on the trees stating what tree it is. So shows attention to detail. Our surprise was the food. They have both ala carte and buffet and we chose a meal plan. Slightly expensive and they charge for bottles of water, which is lame. But the food was good and they had an extensive spread. They do try to ensure that they change the menu so that even after 2 days we did not feel that we were given the same stuff. The staff planned many activities and they really try to get you involved. The first night there was a singing and tambola and the second there were some group activities. In addition they do have indoor games like table tennis, carom, chess etc along with a little library. This was good, though the rates for some seemed to be on the higher side. The best they have is that you could rent bikes there and their charges was nominal. They also have treks that you can sign up for and this is really good. Would highly recommend this activity as we found the guide to be helpful. All in all this is a good resort and they go out of their way to ensure that you do enjoy your holiday. They are also very interested in your feedback. Kudos to the staff and hope they sustain their efforts. Go have a great holiday in kodai by choosing this resort.
