We stayed in this resort yesterday (3rd Nov 2013). We booked standard room.

On arrival room was not ready. We were asked to wait for 10-15 minutes. Receptionist was not courteous as well.

Overall room was ~9x9ft very small. TV was ordinary 21" old days types. I asked for extra blanket and the waiter was like why do you need blanket?

Bed was nicely done. Firm bed instead of spring mattresses. But room was very close to coakers walk and you can hear visitor's talking and whistling.

We had dinner and breakfast there and they were of very good quality. There was fireplace in the dining room and it was very warm and comfy. View in front of dining room is worth its money.

Water pressure in the bathroom is very poor. You can't have shower. Once you have shower it takes 20 minutes to get hot water again.

Finally on checking out again things were not ready. We were asked to wait for 5 minutes. Real lazy bunch of people I must say.

In Kodai we stayed for 3 nights and we tried 3 hotels. This is comes 2nd among the three we tried.

We had traveled in the 1st week of Oct and stayed for 3 nights. Everything from the word go was just right about this place. I had booked for 2 valley view rooms. We were fortunate enough to have got the best room in the property( the real icing on the cake).

The pros:
Location- The place has its colonial charm and located just amidst nature and bang next to coalker's walk and Bryant park.It is an ideal location for honeymooners, never the less if its with family and want to spend some quality time. You can just sit down in the room and see Kodai changing every minute in the form of clouds , mist and the many forms of nature. They have a lovely open sit out area and a dining hall from where you can experience the valley views if u have not taken a valley view room.
Services - They have an amazing group of people ......Jaaved(Manager who is always ready to greet u with a smile and takes every effort to make ur stay as pleasant as possible)Mohammed,Dina,Murugan ....everybody plays their part to make ur stay memorable. My mother got some useful tips about the food from their chef..(I guess it was Philips).
Food- They have decent menu, and the food served is really good as compared to other places in Kodai.
Cons- Can hardly recollect any.....

Very good resort with awesome scenic view. Placed in the heart of Kodaikanal but very calm and quiet area. Creating a romantic environment for couples :).They maintained a catchy garden also. Every attractions of Kodaikanal is in walkable distance, its just in front of botanical garden and Coaker's Walk. Food is good but i felt quantity is low !. They will pay extra for room heater. They would have made it free. Even at 8.30 AM hotel guys telling about vacating :-(. Sitting in lawn, u can see mountains and superb view of Kodai town also. You will never forget sitting in the lawn in a chilling night with your loved one and enjoying the art of nature.

This place is a huge bunglaw with a very scenic view surrounding. Coaker's Walk is just next door. Bryant's Park, Kodai Bus Stand and the lake are just a few minutes walk away. This place is a silent, beautiful and peaceful location.

The food and service at the garden is excellent.
The people at the resort are very hospitable and warm.
A true value for money in all respects.
