Mount Pleasant Boutique Resort

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We stayed for 2 nights (2 rooms, 6 people). Mr. Najmal accomodated our request to hold onto one of our rooms the third day due to the train timing. Great home made food and tea/coffee/milk at our request...

Overall, great resort and an enjoyable stay. The entire family loved it!

My review is delayed a lot , but i am posting here as Firstly want to say Thanks to Mr. Najmal for his warm homely hospitality and secondly i owe to trip advisor who reviewed and which helped me with my travel booking

Hospitality:

Very warm and welcoming, Mr. Najmal was standing at the entrance to welcome us when we arrived at the hotel. His special attention to details and help with the necessary info made our stay of 5 days a pleasant and enjoying...

Rooms:

Was given a nice clean room, we did not find any thing wrong with that.

Service:

We were offered Tea and coffee on request and breakfast was bread omlet, poori, idli sambar etc which was not bad. but will become repetitive.

Food:

I found it to be homely and a bit pricey Rs.250 per head. again it gets repetitive with dal, rice sambar, kabab every night. Will be left with no other options as there a no hotels near by till very far, for getting any decent food you need to take local taxi and travel 10 minutes away and then return back by taxi.

another thing that discourages you to go out for food is the steep climb to reach the road.

Location:

This is the only down side for me.. The place is a bit down side from the road, A steep 45 degrees road connect between the two. Its not every ones cup of tea to climb that, you will wonder all the way while climbing that you are going to fall down and have to stop a few times till u reach to the top.

To make up for this Mr. Najmal and travel agent will drop up to the road on request.

Travel Desk:

There have a person who will take care of travel arrangements and he will ask you that he will pick you up and drop you to places where you need to go for shopping in the town. He charge you Rs. 150 per drop or pickup. local taxis from road side take Rs.10 for the same. but u will have little choice as want to avoid the steep climb and drop..

I will recommed this place for warm hospitality and short stay, a day or two and go. For longer duration like me 5 days, it gets repetitive and nothing around, no restaurants and not easy to approach road and steep climb to reach road will start hurting..

Over all my stay was pleasant and enjoyed, and like to Thank Mr. Najmal and his wife who welcomed and take care of us during our stay . Thank u.

Room Tip: basement rooms are quieter and give more privacy for couple.

As many have rightly said this is an extra ordinary little place in Kodaikanal.

My review is just a collection of points.

1) The hospitality shown by the host couple was extra ordinary and we felt right at home with our small kids and parents.

2) The staff/driver/help were very polite and courteous.

3) Simple, Homely vegetarian food and I mean it as an absolute compliment.

4) The approach is a bit tricky for novices. I suggest get your cars parked at the resort and travel in a local taxi. Kodai's roads are not really car-friendly as they are full of craters and gradients.

5) The property is itself quite small as home stays are. Don't expect a luxury resort/farmhouse or ranch. Rooms are spacious, especially the presidential suites with comfy beds and so is the basement hall.

6) Bathrooms are clean too.

7) Heaters are chargeable extras.

8) Patchy WiFi as is cellular signal in the basement. Probably a blessing if one thinks so.

9) Flat screen TVs with USB connectivity. Room cleaning and extra pillows are available if you ask.

10) Sort of midway between too far and very near to city centre.

11) The hospitality of the entire team top-down deserves a mention once again.

PS: Bachelors are not welcome apparently. So no late night parties to disturb your holiday.

Room Tip: If you need your rooms to be cleaned or need extra pillows or you have some food preference, all you...
