“VALUE FOR MONEY AMIDST UNSPOILT NATURE”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Kolli hills has not yet got the kind of publicity it rightfully deserves-'nature unspoilt & not commercialised. Probably,it is the only hill station of its kind to stay so.Taking this factor into consideration, Nallathambi resorts is the best bet.The resort provides all the basic amenities in aclean and friendly environment-at an amazingly unbelievable cost.The rooms are spacious with requisite amenities.Linen are clean.The restaurant serves both South & North Indian cuisines,well prepared.An optional Camp-fire is an added attraction.Management & staff are friendly and ever willing to help the guests.The kitchen has been re-furbished,rooms added for capacity- without felling any of the existing plantations,which is in sync with Kolli hills reputation.A friend of mine whom I diverted from a day's stay at Yercaud,went on to stay for 3 days at this resort!!

I had been there about a year back and the resort had scope of improvement but unfortunately it has become really shabby the the rooms were dirty the food was sad. The entire resort was in bad shape the location of the place is so good I really don't understand how the management could keep the resort in such bad condition .

I think for a place like Kolli Hills it is very good place to stay.
The rooms are good , not to expect too much.
Simple and average maintained rooms.
Ample Car parking avialible near the rooms.
The food was simple and oK for the dinner and afternoon lunch.

The buffet breakfast was the only thing I found bad.
The breakfast is not value for money.
But you have not many options also and you have to bear with it.

Room Tip: If you have an option of having breakfast else wear,best place to stay in Kolli Hills

After reading mostly negative reviews regarding all hotels in Kolli hills I was surprised to find our experience at Nallathambi Resorts very cosy. I was returning to Banagalore from Vailankanni and chose to break journey for a day. Good ambience, nice food, veg and non- veg, helpful staff and a lot of parking space. There are lot of places to explore and the view point is amazing and very close. Don't expect too much, and remember you are going into the lap of nature unspoilt.

I dont described much about Resort ! I just shared one day experience at Nallathambi Resorts..Two of us were booked this resort . Ambience was extra ordinary. We didn't get time to have food at this resort so no idea about food taste. Price is comparatively better then other resorts (there are very few in that) sight seeing are very less in kolli hills only falls, temple and telescopic views are the most. So all you can cover it in one day, When it comes room service, service boys are really nice and polite. All amenities are except blanket & towel whatever were issued was not clean . So if you have plans of staying overnight please carry your own stuffs. Apart from these place really a pleasant ! I can give 8 out of 10.

Hotel Location:
This hotel (not exactly a resort) is on the main road leading to Semmedu, just about a KM short of this village.

Hotel Parking:
There is a good amount of open space available within the property to park any vehicles.

Hotel Rooms:
There is nothing great to talk about the quality of rooms offered / its amenities, as it just a basic room. The basic problem about hotels in these locations, are that they get occupied only during weekends / holidays, so once these guys clean the room till somebody occupies the same, it would have filled with some kind of a foul smell, as the rooms are not properly ventilated. Considering the weather in this location, the smell is horrible when you check in, when the main door is kept open, it would take some time for the smell to come down. Also a tip for the travelers, kindly carry mosquito repellants as the hotel does not stock them. Only good thing is that in the entire Kolli Hills, this hotel is the only one who provides descent accommodation. If somebody is coming in the morning, you can cover most of the places and give it a skip for staying here.

Hotel Restaurant:
This is the only place I felt satisfied, with cooks doling out good quality basic food, the south thali offered to us for the lunch was very good with rice sambar and other items, considering the place, I think the food was really nice, for the dinner, it was only north Indian, which needs to ordered before 6PM, so that the food is served around 8PM, it is not an instant service restaurant. The boys are really good here, as even they obliged to serve some basic idlis for breakfast as early as 7.30AM, as we had leave towards our destination, as against their regular timing of 8.30AM for serving breakfast. In all you will have to really rely on these guys only for your food requirement, as there are very limited choices in Kolli.

Hotel Staff:
It would be wrong on my part if I do not appreciate the service offred by their room boy and the guys in the kitchen, they seem to be doing a good job in a remote location like Kolli with so much of limitations, these guys try to make your stay as comfortable as possible (with in the available resources), I can actually say that the highlight of the hotel are these poster boys. A big round of applause for them.

Overall:
To sum it up in all I would suggest to give it a skip to stay overnight at this Location itself, as there are not much of places to visit except one / two, you can always make a day trip and then come down to nearby places and stay overnight, as I feel the facilities offered elsewhere are much better than this, if need be to stay at Kolli, then I would highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Ask for hotel units just near to the main building; do not opt for the rooms which are at the end of...

Three of us stayed in this resort on 10th and 11th Sept 2013. In short, a pleasant stay in a pleasant weather. Ambience is good. Food was very tasty no way can be rated less than any decent hotel in Chennai (from where we are). Reasonably priced. But what surpassed all these was the courteous staff. When we visit the hills again, we will not have any second thoughts about choosing this place of stay. Kudos Nallathambi!

Towards improvement side, we would like to add, please get the leaking taps repaired or changed. This is not a deterrent at all but we don't want any blot in the good records of the hotel.
