Sterling has made our holiday jus memorable one. Location of the property is a pleasant one situated very close to the town.. Room was very neat and comfortable... Holiday activities were enjoyable... They offer good travel desk services for site-seeing.. Since Kodaikanal is just about site-seeing there is no need to worry about pre-planning... Food was great...Only suggestion for Sterling...

We had excellent time with Mr.Gopalan and Mr.Pandiyan who showed and explained all the places. They were very co-operative, humble and friendly. We really enjoyed their company. Thanks a lot. Sterling Resort was also good and we had a nice time.
