I and my wife travelled to Kodaikanal last December. We stayed at Hotel Stony Croft which was recommended by a family friend of ours. We did not know what to expect and I’m happy to say that we were not disappointed.
The owners of the property, Mr. & Mrs. Srinath are very nice people and were very hospitable and took extremely good care of us.
The rooms were quite large and comfortable with a kitchenette and 24 hours hot water facility.
Minus an air-conditioner (which I personally think, is not required in Kodaikanal because of the beautiful weather) you will find all elements of comfort here that you would find in a close friend’s place.
The breakfast, though limited to idlis and dosas, was outstanding in quality. The Sourashtra Idli with coconut chutney was the best that I’ve ever tasted anywhere.
The property itself is big and is not too crowded. It also has a separate enclosure that you could rent and enjoy a bonfire night in, with a bunch of friends.
Stony Croft is located in peaceful surroundings and is in walking distance to the lake and to the bus stand. There are a number of attractions nearby that you could just walk down to after a nice hot breakfast.
Overall, this was a great hotel that I would love to go back to, great service and extremely hospitable owners.
5 stars from us!!
