Tranquil setting near lake

Visitors are in favour of the property’s location. According to reviews, the resort is positioned in a serene area, away from the hustle of the city. Since it is situated close to the lake, guests can enjoy amazing views of the Kodaikanal waters. Strolling and cycling near the lake is a wonderful experience offered by this resort.

Well-maintained resort

Travellers are highly impressed with the cleanliness and maintenance of this property. The gardens outside the room cottages are filled with attractive flora. Moreover, the rooms are immaculate and presented well, which is much appreciated by the guests.

Delectable food choices

The meal choices that are served in the hotel are simply sumptuous. Guests’ cravings are truly satisfied with the delectable South Indian cuisine that are made available for both the vegetarians and the non-vegetarians.

Negative Reviews

No Wi-Fi in rooms

One thing that reviewers point out during their stay is the lack of Wi-Fi connectivity in the rooms. They say that this is an inconvenience, since the provision of such facility is expected when considering the accommodation rates.

Slow service

While visitors appreciate the pleasant and friendly attitude of the staff, they note that requests and concerns are not attended to in a prompt manner. They notice that during peak season, the service is slow, making room service and housekeeping requests delayed.

Street parking only

Guests are quite disappointed with the lack of secured parking facilities in the resort. According to them, parking is only on the side of the street, outside the property’s premises. They can appreciate it much if a secured parking lot can be provided.
