"Valley,View and Villa Retreat!"
Monday 25th of April 2016   Bangalore    SeemaBhat

Just back from a short and really sweet trip to Kodaikanal. We had booked this place based on previous stay experience from my sister and her family. This place captures the essence of Kodai, one can just sit on the beautiful bench in their garden and spend their whole day looking at clouds making shapes. Service from staff is excellent, they made sure that all our requests were taken care of , special thanks to Joseph, Prasad and Prabhu. As soon as we landed we made our way to Astoria restaurant near to the bus stand and we attacked food as if there was no tomorrow but it was worth every penny. Staff there too served us with all enthusiasm though they were running full. We were eight of us and each of us had different demands. Sambhar made a way to our hearts from stomach and the taste stayed with us till we were back. Few points on hotel and rooms: 1) Deluxe rooms with balcony does not make any difference so one can go ahead with deluxe rooms. Balcony view is of another hotel which can be skipped. 2) Make sure that you check in near 12 pm as the rooms take time to be allotted but they have cloak room which is very comfortable for long wait. 3) Excellent accessibility to market and lake 4) Hotel provided us the day trip for sightseeing and even there the quality of vehicle and driver was very good. 5) We had dinner and breakfast, food was superb, special mention for Chef James. Stayed April 2016, travelled with friends
