Decent budget resort for comfortable stay


We had extended our stay by 1 day in Kodai & didn't have bookings so had a chance to stay at Fairstay Holiday Resorts, Kodaikanal. It is a decent budget hotel with the required facilities for pleasant stay not over the top but not hard on the pocket. It's very nice place and cool place, nice hill station, good relaxing and good place for kids to enjoy in that climate. It was not very far from the lake & tourist spots. The rooms were neat, clean & tidy with ready facility. The staff were polite & well behaved. The eating options though were limited but many restaurants around.

Nice experience; food is good


Kodaikanal is a place to chill out away from Bangalore and this resort complements it. The ambience in and around the resort is very good. There are multiple games which can be played in groups and individually as well. The food is good. Overall it was a nice experience.

Not good experience and didnt enjoy the stay


During May 2014 end I planned my vacation to this Resort. My experience with this stay was really horrible. Here are points I wanted to highlight as follows: . . First, the good point: There was a very nice hill-side view from the venue. Also is it at a very quiet place and around 3 to 4 KM from the mall town. Not so positive points: I struggled to understand why this venue is being called a resort? This place has no swimming pool, no play area, and no other amenities which will make it a resort. Then why is it a resort, not a hotel? The hotel (I prefer not to call it resort) has no other restaurant close by. So especially for breakfast and dinner the only option is having food in the hotel. This hotel has a restaurant, but that is only vegetarian. The menu content are really very poor mostly Idly, and set-dosa, sambar kind of foods. No North Indian style food available. So it was very difficult situation to manage with kids. During my visit, it was raining heavily and also weather was very cold. So no heating arrangement at the rooms, and it was a struggle to maintain the room temperature. I had to put towels to cover the gap below the main door and windows of the room to stop cold air coming in. As the place is very remote, for the sightseeing we had no chance to explore various options, and had to go ahead with the car arranged by the hotel which turned out to be quite expensive deal for us Personally I did not enjoy my stay in that hotel (I prefer not to call it resort) .

Comfortable resort with good hospitality


Really awesome resort to stay. I stayed in here for five days and I really loved the night stay. There is no noise in the hotel. It is located at a good place, everything what people would need. They provide good service to their customers. We enjoyed very much. We will visit again in future.

Good hotel to stay; friendly staffs


My visit was good there. I visited there with my family in April, 2014. Hotel was good. Look wise, it was clean. City view was seen from the room. Staff were friendly with us there. They were quick in their services. One day stay tariff was 1800. Room was good with all amenities. Food was okay. No activity was there. Kodaikanal is a good place. Location and appearance of the hotel was nice. Room service, staff service, and food were also good. It was value for money.

Travel desk facility was available; recommendable


The first day only they provided complimentary breakfast, the other day was payable and the quality and taste of the food was great. There was campfire, indoor and outdoor games and kid's park facility. It is located at about one km distance from the city, very convenient for sightseeing places and they provided vehicle to pick up, drop and for sightseeing. I stayed here with friends for relaxation in July, 2013 and my native place is Pondicherry. The hotel room tariff was value for money and it is recommendable to others. Hotel appearance was excellent and the interior was fully furnished. The room was booked by one of my friends and there was no problem while check in and check out. The staff were friendly, helpful, cooperative and very attentive. Room spacious, neat and well maintained, has TV, coffee maker, room heater and geyser facility but fridge facility was for certain rooms.

Average hotel


Hotel location was very good. Services were poor. Appearance was nice. I faced no problem during check in and check out facility. Rooms were not up to the mark. I faced no problem during check in and check out timing. Food was below average. There was no outdoor activity available. Booking and front office staff was okay. Kodaikanal is a good place as tourism. It was a family trip for relaxation.

Hill view from room; no restaurant facility


Hotel is not located on main city which is one and half kilometre from the bus stand. Staff were professional and appearance of the hotel was not that good. Rooms were clean and well maintained with all functioning amenities. Good hill view and main road view was grasped. No restaurant facility but we need to ask them since they have limited menu. No delay happened in billing and no activities was organized just park for children. The pay is worth and I recommend for other travellers. Sightseeing trip was done by me. I suggest in dedicating the restaurant and this was a relaxation trip with my family gone in November 2012.

Good tasty food with nice quality given by hotel


Overall experience at the hotel was good. It is not conveniently located and I faced a problem in vehicle, I have no car so I ask for auto but they did not come. It is inside the city and three or four kilometre far from bus stand. Staff were good behaviour with quick request. The appearance was okay and moderate. Food was good taste and quality was nice. Rooms were spacious and maintained. They provided basic amenities which were functioning properly. No delay with check-in and check-out process. There are no activities or sightseeing trip organized by hotel. It is value for the money and I will recommend. I am from Bangalore and I visited for honeymoon purpose in the month of October. I suggest only for two days it will be nice and moderate with value money.

Good experience

Posted 28 Jun, 2012

I Proceeded with my family on 1.06.2012 from Palani and reached kodaikanal at about 8 pm and the reception people attended immediately and allotted the room , the rooms were very large,clean, and with all the comforts,like fridge,safe locker, purified water and arranged coffee . Since i had availed their package of two nights and three days , there was nothing to worry for sight seeing. They provided us exclusively for us with a good driver and he showed all the important places and the town also. After days tour ,we used to get good sleep as the good and comfortable bed were there to lie. The tours started after breakfast at 8.3 to 9.00 am and used to return to room at 6.00 pm . The Kodaikanal is really a beautiful,place spend the hot summer and the forests are realyy maintained well by the Tamilnadu government and hatsoff to them.

Best place to stay

Posted 31 Jan, 2013

Overall experience is very good.They guide us well in sight seeing and shopping. The view of Kodaikanal from the Hotel rear balcony is exciting. Though the hotel is situated a little inside from the city, its calm and quiet. Best place to stay.

Fairstay falls into the list of few best hotels in Kodai. It is very attractive and located in the prime location. Accommodation was neat and comfortable. Staffs were helpful. But only disappointment was the food, wasn\'t that great.
