When we started planning to Kodai, I started searching for hotels and found this one. When I called, they said room is available only for one day. I confirmed them for a day. But still I was doubtful like how will it be as we were travelling with the toddler. When we boarded the bus from Chennai to kodai, Kennedy, the driver of the hotel called us and said that he will come and pick us up in the bus stand to the hotel which is complimentary. When I entered the Pine-Borough Inn, to my surprise, I felt very happy that I booked right place as hotel rooms looked very hygienic. Apart from normal amenities, there was fridge, dryer, complimentary aquafina bottles. Each penny that we paid was worth. They had utilized the place very well. There was kids play area, swing, shuttle court, sliding board, TT, chess, nursery, colorful garden which is treat to the eyes. Room service was very good. Every time they knocked the door and invited us to have hot breakfast and dinner. I fell sick and when I called up the reception and asked for tablet, next minute they were with the tablet As we booked for only one day, for second day it became very hectic to get another hotel as our expectations were similar to this place. Searched so many hotels as it was season time, so couldn't get anything. Finally, after so much pain of searching, we felt relieved because they somehow managed to provide room for one more day Food was good especially the rava idli for breakfast. I haven't eaten so soft rava idlis before. I liked their pav bhajis with anna toasting buttery pav bhajis for us Animals like hutch dog, rabbits, ducks were there for kids to enjoy Sight seeing: Kennedy and Alphonse both of us guided us best places to visit and Alphonse took us to all the places in their toyota car, He did trekking with us and turned into a photographer for us. He took us to best govt. Shop to get spices and chocolates and made our day trips entertaining by telling stories and life of kodai people. He dropped us back to kodai road in the late hours to catch our train to Chennai. And next day, he called us and cared to know whether we reached safely. You will not get all amenities with such a low cost at anywhere in Kodaikanal Only drawback was there were steps everywhere so you need to be climbing which will be difficult for elderly people.
December probably isn't the best of times to visit Kodai. But we had a pleasant stay here in PBI, courtesy the warmth of staff, and the enjoyable variety of breakfast food. Hot water is not an issue, but some rooms could be cooler as they get very little sunshine, like the one we stayed. But finally it was a choice between spacious bunker beds and the sunshine or hill view, and we took the former Our besieged 11 and 8, were immediately off to explore on their own, and also made some friends in the games room cum library. They did report on the dog, the ducks, the goats and the guinea-pigs; and the outdoor shuttle-court. We went sightseeing in the mornings, lunched in different restaurants nearby and spent lazy afternoons within the PBI hotel premises; no complaints from the kids, as they engaged themselves in indoor games Our gracious host did show us around on the final day of our 4-day visit; the nursery and the garden, and all that our kids had reported earlier. Not for the aged to explore on their own, as the paths could get somewhat sloping down Definitely would love to visit again. Maybe in summer, if possible.
We went to Kodai for our family get together. We were searching for a good resort to stay and we came across Pine Borough Inn through our travel agent. The resort is located in the slope of a valley. The resort would be invisible if you were a passerby, because it is at the slope and only the reception would be visible. The resort is maintained by only 5 people, they act as the cooks, the room service, the porters, the security, the front office guy and the waiters. This resort has loads of fun and activities to entertain its guests. It has a Table Tennis table, a chess board, a carom board, a mini library, a play area for kids and four floors of landscaped garden. They even offer the service of setting up a campfire if required. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. The food at the resort was stomach filling. You can have a good time at the resort. The staff at the resort is very friendly. The resort is well maintained and kept neat and tidy. The stay at the resort is an enjoyable place for a group of people. The rooms are well located. This place would be a good place to consider if you are going with a group of people.
