We stayed there for two nights. Great location right adjacent to coakers walk. Good view of the valley from the signature suits and dining hall. They serve food in the lawn adjacent to the dining hall which have good view. Please choose signature room 103 if yo are opting for that category. Other two are not that spacious as compared...

We stayed two nights and enjoyed the location and views. Our room was simple but comfortable. Try to book a room with a view as it's the view which is one of the great attributes of the hotel. The small garden terrace looks out over Kodaikanal, the hills and the plains and is a great place to have a quiet...

This place is just beside the Coakers Walk, amazing view. Has a small restaurant, food is good, nothing fancy though. Walkable distance from the bus stop and main market. Be prepared to climb some stairs in this property.

We stayed for two nights at this excellent and unique place which is a true and very welcome experience of comfort, cleanliness, and style. The view down the valley are simply breathtaking and are on the way from the rooms to the little restaurant or even from few selected rooms. We will definitely come back!
