JC Residency
Ranked #5 of 78 Hotels in Kodaikanal
Reviewed 11 August 2013

This was a wonderful stay in Kodiakanal and specially at JC residency. Service was quite good.
We also got the complementary up gradation from Super Delux to Honeymoon suite at time of arrival.
Only concern was the hot water. Only the warm water was coming. After requesting twice for hot water, we got this.
The staff ( manager- Suresh and spot boy- Ramesh) was very cooperative. Food was average.
Variety can be more but nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay there.

Room Tip: Please call them for Free Pick and drop service from Bus-Stand.

Only concern towards staying at this Hotel is the room heater. It doesn't heat up at times. And when you ask for a separate heater, it costs you 400 bucks per day. And they never reduce the price too when it is not your mistake... Other than this, everything was good. Nice experience and would certainly recommend this to all.

I managed to stay at a so-called 'Honeymoon Suite' at JC Residency during June 2013. We were given the suite# 209. When we entered the room, we noticed that the bath tub was not clean and there were wet clothes hanging in the bathroom for drying (basically, the room was not even ready when given to us.) After talking with the reception, they shifted us to suite# 210. That room was better but it was missing the cushions in the sofa etc. The suite was large but still looks like under renovation. There was no hot water in the morning (may be due to the lack of capacity of their boiler) and we were told to let the water run for 5 minutes and try again. Even after 15 minutes, the water was still cold. It was a major turn off especially at a place like Kodaikanal. There is an announcement about Honeymoon Cake etc in their web site and many other web sites but don't fall for that. Nothing like that happened to us (or, the cake was given to someone else.) The night before check-out, we went and confirmed that the hotel accepts the payment through credit card. When we went to settle the bill in the morning, we were told that the credit card machine is not working and they need cash. How come they expect people to carry thousands of rupees in cash? It is a cheap little dirty trick played by these hotel guys to save the percentage commission to be paid to the credit card company charges. So, if anyone is planning to stay, please be prepared for that. You may ask whether anything good exists in the hotel. Yes, the room rate included the breakfast and dinner and the food and service at the restaurant were very good. Apart from that, it is a waste of paying so many thousands for that unfit 'Honeymoon Suite'.

Room Tip: Try to make the payment first when you are booking using the credit card to avoid any last minute un...

Ive stayed in JC residency for a couple of times and I can say that it is the very right place to stay in kodai. Well furnished rooms, a kids play area, a mini zoo, a small colosseum, activity centre, etc all are maintained very well. The room service deserves a special mention. Ive always recomemnded this hotel to all my friends. Overall I would say that my stay was awesome and I would give 5 stars on all the aspects.

We stayed there on July 2011. The hotel was very much affordable, all amenities were good. Hotel staff were very supportive. I really enjoyed there dinner, they served awesome signature south tamil nadu non-veg foods. I would prefer staying there again. Only one little downside of this hotel is, its bit far from kodaikanal lake.
