We boarded the Pandian Express from Chennai and got down at Kodai Road early in the morning next day. There are several fruit shops and tea stalls opposite the station. We had hot steaming tea and bought some fruits. There are several buses from there to Kodaikanal. We boarded the bus, it got really crowded after a certain point. The view up was awesome. We could see Vaigai dam on the way and several water falls. Good journey.

Journey was better in train. It would have been good if the train reached on time. It got delayed by 5 hrs, horrible. As it was a special train to tirunelveli to accommodate the rush. Toilets were good. Our travel was the next morning after the guruvayur exp derail near villupuram. So that too delayed all trains movement. Other than that the travel was good as we travelled a group of 20 members with fun filled activities.

The hotel was really located in pleasant location that too within the city limits. Basic amenities were good except for hot water which was provided on time but the water colour was bit odd. Maybe same condition at all other hotel not sure though. We booked couple of 3 bedroom, family room. It...more »

We took train in night journey in 3 A/C. It was comfortable and pleasant journey. As it was night hours, we were able to sleep well and relaxing. The services in coach were good. The train maintained its schedule and reached Madurai next day early morning. Then we hired taxi to travel by Road to Kodaikanal. It was really excellent experience amid-st cool breeze and green on Ghat Roads with dark clouds keep appearing. We enjoyed nice forest fruits varieties on way. It too about 3 hrs to reach hotel.

Train travel was good. We travelled by three tier AC. As always Pandian Express will be on time and the train was in good condition. We got down at Kodai Road by 04. 30 Am and we hired a taxi. We reached Kodaikanal at 7 Am. On the way we covered two to three places like Silver Cascade Falls etc.

Very scenic travel from Kodai road up to the hill, we took a Govt bus which was a mistake since it was stopping at too many places and overcrowded after certain point. Localities took the bus for work and so became very loud. Songs played in the bus was too loud and so I have to request the driver to reduce the volume. It was a different experience though since we always take cab to reach the hill top.
