Hotel Stonycroft has nice rooms, located close to the Kodai lake (10 minutes walk), has greenery around and comes at a reasonable cost.
I stayed with my family (wife & kid) and we enjoyed the breakfast every day which is quite fresh & hot. The rooms and reasonably big and clean. The staff is courteous and make sure you are attended well.
The owner of the property lives in the same compound and so will make sure you are heard if something is not upto the mark.
Woody's restaurant is next door and a nice 3 minutes walk will take you there where you can enjoy food in a calm environment located in a 200 year old british building with nice garden.
We throroughly enjoyed our stay at Stonykroft so would recommend to anybody who are looking for a relaxed stay at Kodai.
