Very good hotel with good tariff

Posted 31 May, 2016

This hotel was very good for the stay and this hotel was located in the city and the tariff for the stay was thousand five hundred and I had a discount in this hotel. Amenities were conducted in the room and it was in working condition. This hotel was a maintained hotel. The money spent to this hotel was worthy. I had been to this hotel in the month of January for business trip.

It was an excellent vacation nice and calm place

Posted 2 Apr, 2016

It was an excellent vacation nice and calm place away from the busy city life. The stay was warm and welcoming. The place is located in the midst of a rubber estate and the early morning walk was very refreshing. The food was decent and they also offer provision for barbeque and live grill counter if requested. I stayed with my pets and the stream in the premise was a wonderful time out and my pets they just could not comeback from the water. Overall, I would rate this as a nice weekend getaway spot reasonable priced and rightly positioned. But not a luxurious getaway package if you are looking for one.

Good stay

Posted 28 Mar, 2016

Good place to opt for a peaceful holiday break. Supportive staff, good food, nice accommodation, river bed few steps from your room and lush green nature Need to be aware: Good to take your vehicle else need to shell out money for taxi which is expensive.

A stay with mother nature

Posted 15 Mar, 2016

We came to know about this destination only by word from friends. On reaching, what we found was a totally different ambience from other similar holiday spots. Absolutely quiet, away from pollution of all sorts, and a totally tranquil atmosphere and surroundings where we could relax in absolute privacy and indulge in activities like strolling around undisturbed, watching the greenery, and a bit of bird watching, and so on The rooms were comfortable, reasonably priced and adequately furnished. The pool was under maintenance and could not be used. The service was warm, friendly and responsive. The meals were tasty and affordable since you are generally away from the outside world well tucked inside the estate, there was no option of looking for a different restaurant nearby. Hence the menu could accommodate lamb / fish dishes etc We intend revisiting the Lodge with other members of the family in the near future. Recommended for a stay away from the hustle bustle of the city and spend a while in absolute relaxation. The sign posting to guide you to the resort was inadequate and needs improvement.

Perfect place to stay with good service

Posted 7 Jan, 2016

We had lot of doubt before booking this unknown hotel as there was no advertisements or road signs to reach the destination. The moment you crossed the hotel gate you will start getting the feeling that it is going to be an out of the world experience here. On all my family journeys we never came to such a private space with all luxuries and comfort. There is a stream of river passing through this resort which makes it a unique of its kind experience. A Bath in this river stream with kids was an unforgettable family experience. The resort had all private pool villas and a big common swimming pool which was a surprise. Far away from all noise and pollution of the human beings this place is a wild forest experience for the travellers. The staff were very courteous and friendly and the food was very reasonable. There is a relaxing ayurvedic centre, yoga hall and much more things than we expect in a resort. The rates were very reasonable and affordable. The only worry for us was we just scheduled 24 hour time inside the resort which was too less and we had lot of activities / games more to do even at the time of our check-out. Ponmudi hills is less than 2 hrs drive from here and you are advised to club the journey together and check-in on your return from Ponmudi. Like my previous article in HolidayIQ about Tiptop hotel near jog Waterfalls, here also a small thing to be taken care is you have to bring your own bottles as there is no bar in this resort. With half mind we had checked out with lot of activities more to be done and with a feeling that you should come once again for a Bath in the private stream at this serene place. On our journey back. The doubt still remained in mind, why this amazing resort is calling himself Duke's Lodge?

staff who was exceptionally proficient and cordial

Posted 2 Aug, 2015

The manors are dazzling and look directly into the National Park - you can sit back in the cool Jacuzzi and watch monkeys playing in the trees. The administration is amazing - nourishment takes a bit longer than ordinary to arrive, yet it's all made crisp to worth the hold up! The pool and grounds are greatly well kept and the rooms are unadulterated On the Sunday we went for a stroll to the estate and elastic production line with an individual from staff who was exceptionally proficient and cordial - we truly delighted in it. This is one spot were pets are really invited and not simply grudgingly permitted. Further, they don't charge additional for pleasing pets. My doggie had an incredible time without a doubt, and had made a decent arrangement of companions when we exited The woods and the 100 section of land ranch gave adequate chances to trekking, winged animal watching, and investigating. Skipping in the unmistakable cool waters of the Kallar was entertaining. Getting very close with the logistics of the manor and homestead was truly intriguing. More or less, the stay was an unwinding, charming and cliffhanging background. I would without a doubt visit again for family excursions or weekend getaways This is an impeccable retreat for two or three little gathering of companions to appreciate.

Excellent service and awesome atmosphere

Posted 19 Jan, 2015

I visited this hotel with my family for relaxation. I liked the hotel atmosphere and service provided in my vacation. The overall experience was good. The hotel location was very convenient and I did not face any kind of issues. My entire family liked this hotel very much. I travelled in my own vehicle so I do not know how far the Bus Stand or Railway Station situated. The surrounding of the hotel was good, maintained clean, and neat. I am not sure whether there is a temple or shopping mall close to the hotel since it was a forest area. The service provided by the management was good and helpful. They come forward and make us comfortable with our request. The room allotted to me was spacious, neat and well-maintained with fine pillows and blanket. I really like the room allotted to me. I have no idea whether AC or non-AC room but there was a forest view from balcony. The staffs ensured to keep the washroom clean regularly. The food from the hotel restaurant was good in taste and hygienically maintained. They served all our required food at reasonable price. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. There were lot of games, swimming pool etc. , and we enjoyed most. I did not enquire about sightseeing trip. The money spent was value and I have already recommended this hotel to my friends. Only problem I faced is, when I asked room for second time with my friends they did not organise it. I have no suggestion for any kind of improvement, as I am completely satisfied. For other travellers I can suggest this hotel is best to make a comfortable stay compared to other hotels in this destination. Finally, the staffs in the hotel are really good and excellent in their performance and behaviour.
