"Wonderful & an amazing stay at Kodaikanal"

7.0/7
Posted 2 years ago

I have visited Kodaikanal in February 2015 and stayed at hotel Sunrise, I was looking for a place where I can enjoy and see something new. I went there with my family and believe me my stay at Hotel Sunrise was just above my expectation. I was there in this hotel on my way to Kodaikanal and asked for availability, I got instance response. I just thought it would be a normal hotel, but when I reached there I was amazed by its location and view. I was very very wonderful stay there. Hotel staff was very supportive. Room were clean and proper hygiene was maintained. I fell very comfortable and ready to explore Kodaikanal. If you going there then get up early, I have never seen such a wonder full Sunrise before that you can view from this hotel. This Hotel is situated at such a great location that you will miss something here if you don't stay here. The hotel staff also helped me to make my plan to visit the places in Kodaikanal. I would really love to come and stay at this hotel again.

"An decent hotel for Family - Decent Location, Helpful staff, and good rooms with view"

4.0/7
Posted 6 months ago

We booked this hotel from MMT at a good price discount and were not expecting much at the price we paid. Our objective this time was not to get cozy in the rooms but spent most of the time outside. However when we reached the deluxe rooms was filled and we got upgraded to the super deluxe and boy, we were surprised looking at the rooms and the view. Booking and Room Rates - 7/10 I made the book via make my trip one month in advance and we got a decent deal for 3 days (almost 2000 off ). Although MMT is famous for cheating and forgery in case of refunds and booking cancellation, I must say I got a good deal from MMT this time. I would prefer goibibo anytime over MMT and cleartrip for simplicity of booking and cancellation. After the booking I had contacted the hotel and confirmed about the booking status since it was MMT and you can never trust their system. After the hotel confirmed, I booked the taxi from kodai railway station to the hotel @Rs 1250. I also confirmed with the hotel whether there is any chance for cooking for the kid in case I need something and they were affirmative about it. So there was that peace of mind of home made food for my 3 year kid. The rates for the hotel is very decent given the fact that we got a super deluxe room for the price of deluxe. However to be honest, I have not seen the deluxe rooms nor the royal deluxe as they claim in the website for a fair comparison. Check in and Check Out : 7/10 They have a check in time of 9 AM and check out at 9AM. I would always prefer a 24 hours check in and check out as it is more convenient. However the staff are courteous enough to keep the rooms ready when we arrived at 8 AM. Also I am assuming that they are little generous on the check out timings as well but I did not test that. Hotel Rooms - 8/10 The moment I checked in, I found a well maintained room with LCD TV with Hindi and English channels. The decoration of the room was pleasant and the view from the window was mind blowing. The rooms are non-ac but the weather there is just ideal for enjoying in a non AC room. You open your window and you will find some serene view outside and a cool temperature at this time of the year. If you are traveling during the winter, it is advisable that you take an AC room as the temperature dips sharply after 5PM. The rooms are quite spacious, beds very cozy and ample cupboards for luggage and clothes. The bathroom is clean and serves hot water from 7AM to 10AM and from 7PM to 8PM. The room is cleaned very nicely once you hand over the keys and there is no reminders required for that. There is enough space given for dining for two people in case you want to order food inside. The only glitch I could see was the way in which the toilets are designed with the flush at the back - making it awkward. Location : 6/10 It is located in the post office road. Although it is not centrally located, you will find all the amenities nearby. You have the market within 400m, decent restaurants within 1 km and the park within. You have Astoria Veg and Coaker Restaurant within walk able distance - mind the uphill walk along with kids. The lake and coaker's walk is around 3. 5 km ; don't try to walk, even if the locals mention it is walk able. Room Service & SunShine Restaurant : 4/10 The sunshine restaurant is below average in terms of the hygiene, food preparation and price. We were disappointed with the stale food provided in the breakfast and the amount of time taken to serve food. Also the hygiene is not that good. The only time we enjoyed the food is when we ordered some starters. However the room service guys are quite helpful - they provide hot water for the kid on demand, cook baby food and maggi for a nominal cost. Also if you want water can from outside, they will fetch that for you. Staff behaviour 7/10 The staff are courteous and helpful. And they are readily available at the ring of the phone. Connectivity and Travel within City 8/10 The travel desk is quite knowledgeable and handy if you do not have your own itenary. They will have many packages for multiple trips but trust me Kodaikanal is a small city good enough for only 1 package. So don't tempted by their multi day multi package deal and bargain hard for a single day package covering all places. Tips for Travelers Book a taxi from hotel to avoid rude drivers and unpleasant experiences. The hotel has some good travel agents who make your travel and tour enjoyable. We had an horrible experience while returning to the station with a locally booked taxi - driver was rude, driving was reckless and was constantly talking on phone while driving. If you want to go on city trip, try to cover all the ghat and forest places before 11 AM to 12 AM before the fogs sets in. Travel ideally to the forest and ghat areas first and then visit the other places. Do not trust the driver or agent on the itenary. Make your own and search for some good blogs for sorting the places. They will take you to the same place and mark 4-5 places. Walkable for locals is not walkable for most of city folks. Keep this in mind Keep yourself hydrated and keep a good sunscreen handy. Room Tip: Ask for a room at the first floor . Tripadvisor.

"Food was very nice and helpful staff"

6.9/7
Posted 2 years ago

When I travelled at Kodaikanal then I stayed in Sunrise Hotel. Location and appearance were fine. Staff behaviour was helpful and friendly. Check-in and check-out facility was on time. I went there in my own vehicle. Rooms were neat, clean, and spacious. I took my meal n the hotel and it was very nice. Both veg and non-veg dishes were served in the hotel but I enjoyed only non-veg food in the hotel. There was no outdoor activity available. I went there with my family in the month of October 2013 and it was a relaxing trip. I will recommend this hotel to my friends and other tourists.
