From the beautiful entrance and warm welcoming faces, to the high standards of hospitality and service maintained by each member of their staff - our stay at Sterling's Kodai resort was truly made special. One expects to lay relatively low at a hill station getaway to the point of boredom (and that is possible should you wish) however the resort...

The room was really neat and good. The hotel provides a lot of facilities. But the hotel charges a lot when it comes to food. For a cup of milk and coffee they charge you around ₹155. But the quality is pathetic. The milk was really watery and the coffee was lacking flavour. There is no justification for charging that...

Stayed for 3 nights in December 2016. Very well maintained resort with lot of greenery. Good infrastructure and amenities. Quality of service and food was very good. Extremely helpful staff, always eager to please. Occasional power failure in Kodaikanal, specially during rains was a bit of a disappointment.
