The rooms of the hotel creates an instant impression on you with their impressive size and cleanliness. We were travelling as a group of 2 couples and were put up in the Honeymoon suit and Heritage suit category of rooms. The rooms were equipped with amenities like electric kettle, safe, umbrellas. The view from the rooms are nothing great but this is more than made up by the courteous behaviors of the hotel staff. During our 2 day we were quite impressed by the attitude of the staff, specially the young guy operating out of the hotel front desk (sorry, I can't exactly recall the name). The breakfast buffet was wholesome and tasty. The hotel went an extra mile to ensure guest satisfaction by organizing complimentary dinner on the second day of our stay. Overall a good stay. Just one negative point tough, the location of the hotel is not that great as it is located at least 1.5KM away from Kodai lake.
Pros:
1) Nice rooms
2) In room amenities
3) Courteous staff
4) Ok food
Cons:
1) Average location
2) Running hot water available only during fixed timing; 7 AM to 10 AM and 7 PM to 8 PM.

The room was very congested and way too simple. They didn't provide us with a tea and coffee maker.
The restaurant closes by 9:30 pm. We had to sleep on empty stomach for the entire night. Even tea and coffee wasn't available after 10 pm.
Any good hotel should have the facility of light snacks and tea/coffee for 24 hours.

The complementary breakfast was good and the staff behavior was very satisfactory.
With only a small price difference, the Super deluxe double room is way too awesome.

Dear Mr Abhishek,
Greetings From Hill Top Group Of Hotels !!!
We thank you for you review, first we would like to inform you that coffee and tea maker is available in all our rooms, the restaurant supervisor had called you to take your order and you said that you will call back , you were also informed that the restaurant & and room service closes by 9.30pm .. All hotels close the restaurants at the same time in kodaikanal been a cold place.

I had booked room at Hiltop towers through online booking but later i was accommodated in Hotel Jai due to non availability of room in Hiltop towers. I was disappointed by this but my stay was nice enough in Hotel Jai as well.Hotel staff were cooperative and courteous. Restaurant food was nice..Nice stay at serene location
