Waking up to a morning with fog against your window and through the fog, you get to see the beautiful pear trees. Bliss. Mount Pleasant Boutique, a few minutes drive from the Kodaikanal Lake, is one of the most beautiful resorts I have stayed at. It took me some time to zero in on a resort to spend some quality time with my husband but after a few phone calls and really friendly conversation with the team at Mount Pleasant, I decided to spend a couple of days at this serene resort . . I will divide the review into four aspects 1) Booking and Arrangements 2) Building and Rooms 3) The Food 4) Money. 1) Booking and Arrangements. I never thought hotels could be so friendly, forthcoming and sociable even before the booking. Calls with Mr. Jamal and the team inquiring about the stay and availability was pretty much like calling up a friend and letting him know that you would coming over. On arriving at Kodaikanal (We were late by 4 hours from the scheduled time) we found a cab awaiting us and a warm welcome by the driver who didn't even complain for having to wait for 4 hours. We were welcomed at the resort by the team with great warmth and hospitality. To quote my husband "Well, that is a lot of warmth for a Cold Kodaikanal". 2) Building and Rooms. A road into a steep valley will take you to a pear garden and that is where this beauty is located. A magnificent building with warm rooms and floor carpeting. The beautiful/ comfortable beds and thick curtains add to the comfort. The glass windows with white frames opens to the pear farm wherein you can try plucking a few pears from the trees. The second door opens to the same farm, individual camp fire and a small lawn with beautiful flowers. The attic downstairs has a swing and enough space for a group of 12 people to sit and talk. With just 12 rooms, this place is not crowded. Hot Water is available throughout except for a few hours (2 hours or so) in the noon. The staff will keep changing the sheets/ water/ towels and just make the room beautiful every time you walk into it. 3) The Food. If you are travelling and want to have some delicious home cooked food. Yes, these guys serve really delicious food which makes you feel like home. They do have some good veg/ non veg variety but non of it would damage your stomach lining. The ideal thing to do is Have your breakfast and dinner at this place as breakfast come complimentary and dinner will be something light and will help you sleep well. You can opt for lunch outside and experiment with some of the delicacies. The restaurants and other hotels are pretty close by (say 1. 5 km) so food is not a problem 4) Money. It is easy on pocket and worth every penny you spend. The food is also great and it won't drill a hole in your pocket Overall:. Book - Stay - Enjoy
No word to describe this hotel (I mean Home stay) since it has been reviewed by so many people at the best. In simple words it just a AWAY FROM HOME". We stayed there for 2 nights (mid February) and we never felt that we were away from our home. It's like you have been served at the best at your place. I am not good at writing reviews but I had promised Mr. Jamal (Owner of this beautiful place) that I will surely write a review @ Mount Pleasant . . Location: It was not very easy nor too hard to find this place since it is little bit away from the crowded city (about 3 km past Kodai town). Everything around is just perfect the valley the trees and the surrounding is very clean too. Except the drive part (a 100m steep road) to this place is breathtaking (quite dangerous and thrilling). Surely you need a skillful and professional driver to pass this slope (mark my words). Mount pleasant: if you look at the pictures, you will come to know that it's an old styled bungalow which is very recently constructed by Mr. Jamal (which he calls it as his dream project). It's very neatly and thoroughly architect ed. There are 5 rooms in the basement and 5 on the ground. As you enter inside you come across a big hall which includes the living, dining and kitchen on the corner. Everything is tastefully arranged and it's very clean (very important point). There is a small play area outdoors for children, too. For facilities have a look at this website. Kodaikanalheritage. Com/? Page=facilities). Rooms: 3 types of rooms Premium, Prime and Presidential. We chose the premium which is in the basement. The rooms are just awesome, simple and very clean. The walls are fresh white and floor is covered with mat made from original coconut husk fibers. The beddings are very cozy and made from imported quilt which are enough to cover you from normal cold. A 32inchLCD TV with Tata Sky, separate dressing area and a relaxing chair makes it more perfect room. The main thing I liked was the VERY clean and fresh bathroom. Food: You can complain your mom about food but not these guys because it was just awesome. We were a bit unlucky as we get to taste the food made by Mr. And Mrs Nitin, still we had the best. You will get a homely food and not the restaurant type food. Whether it may be the breakfast or lunch or dinner, we were served with good quality, tasty and delicious food ( Veg or Non-Veg). Service: Can't be more better than this. Laxman provided us everything we needed. Value for Money: Surely with no doubt its value for money unless your looking for some stereo type resorts. The main thing I forgot to mention is the Great Hospitality and Good Care by this wonderful family. I strongly recommend this resort to friends, family and everyone who wants a peaceful and calm stay in Kodaikanal. I guess I should stop here. Thanks Mr. Jamal for EVERYTHING.
Me along with my wife and son who came from US planned to stay in this beautiful small 'homely' resort for 2 nights on viewing its great reviews in the popular travel websites. We all the three felt like it was really a boon to stay here with the very personal attention given by its owner Mr. A K Jamal in all aspects- right from the accommodation arrangements to dining including our travel requirements at fairly reasonable rates for sightseeing, pick up and drops etc. He personally supervises every requirement of the tourists who stay in the resort so as to ensure their full satisfaction The staff who are in the resort are also well behaved, very helpful and courteous. The food prepared by their chief Mr. Pushparaj were simply great and mouth watering. The 'Prime Suite' room which we three stayed was really a cosy one with a loft room with double bed cot was really a special attraction with wooden staircase. Our son enjoyed his staying on that loft room. Especially our son really enjoyed his stay more than us in peacefully attending his maths work leisurely and in a very calm atmosphere like our home Perhaps the location of the resort is right down on a very steep lane which will definitely boost up our energy in keeping our health very much fit. The surroundings with berry fruit trees, colourful flower plants and also beautiful birds do make the resort more unfriendly. The piano of 150 years old is a special antique and the beds in the rooms are reportedly made with feathers and are so soft Overall our short stay at the Mount Pleasant was so sweet and memorable and it was really a 'home away home' experience for us. We strongly recommend for the tourists who visit Kodaikanal to definitely try for a stay in this small but beautiful resort Stayed September 2015.
If I have to sum up the review in online, all I would say is our stay at the Mount Pleasant Boutique Resort was pure bliss Pro's: Overall property, rooms, service, food, value for money, attention to details, kid friendly and homely. Con's: Limited rooms Rarely you come across a place were both the owner & staff take pride in their establishment & serving the guest; this is one such rare finds for me in a very long time The property is not only beautiful but also unfriendly. It has that old British Colonial touch to it but with Ikea fittings! The rooms are comfortable during day, warm and cosy during the cold nights. The architecture and interiors of the house is such that you get the best of Kodai nature and the pleasure of modern indoors They have an open kitchen (neat and hygienic) and a master-chef who's Rasam was just windblown. Both the quality & quantity of food served will pleasantly surprise you Since the owner is a music buff, they have a piano, gramophone & a Hi-Fi music system loaded with Kenny Rogers The property has many hidden treasures, that revels it self at a leisurely pace. A great place to unwind & relax, even for young parents, as the place is kid friendly My time of visit: 2nd week of September 2014 PS: There are many Pear trees in the compound and the guests are allowed to pluck & eat as much as they want.
I had visited this hotel with my family. The ambience of the hotel was very good. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. The allotted room was spacious with clean. All amenities were available in working condition. The complimentary breakfast was provided by the hotel. The garden was available at the hotel. The money spent at the hotel was worth. The parking facility was available at the hotel. I would recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers.
Our family of three spent three fun filled memorable relaxed holidays at Mount Pleasant Boutique Resort, Kodai. This new setup is not a run of the mill large resort property but a quiet, quaint bungalow with rooms at different price points for a traveler. It is away from the hum of the city center but at the same time very close to all of Kodai's tourist attractions. Its a total value of money on location, room, food and hospitality
We stayed for two days with family during X Mas Vacation. Excellent location surrounded by peer trees, Kids play area, tasty homely food made in open kitchen, awesome hospitality, excellent place to spent a vacation to those who like a stay in a calm atmosphere. Just keep away from the busy city life . .
A great place to stay. The hotel is an exotic location surrounded by berry trees and has homely food, personal care from owner Mr. Jamal and his staff, kids play area and a tiny library. What else do you require for a perfect comfortable holiday!
The hotel was located outside the city. The hotel appearance was good. The food was good in the hotel. The activity was not conducted by the hotel. I had visited this hotel for relaxation trip. I had booked the room by online. I would recommend this hotel to upcoming travellers. It was a good hotel. I don't have any suggestion for this hotel.
A very nice place to stay. It is not only absolutely clean, but the rooms are also excellent. Rest assured you will be taken care of very well by Najmal and Nitin - be it in terms of preparing excellent food for your or arranging a cab for you. Free wi-fi in the main hall is a bonus. The only issue is that it can get really cold, so better carry lots of woolen clothes with you. All in all, the place is totally recommended!
