We had a great time at this quaint and charming old English bungalow. Made our stay at Kodaikanal all the more memorable. The view from the garden is amazing; rooms are clean and comfortable, and we loved the breakfasts! (The chef, Mr Darryl, makes excellent dosas and sambar). Great work, Mr Shaheed! We look forward to visiting again some time... More

Being old hands in Kodai (We used to stay in Vattakanal in a house on lease) we were looking for a place that is laid back, with spacious rooms and large verandahs.
