This hotel was very near to Coaker's Walk and Bus Stand as well. However, this was a pretty ordinary hotel with below average services aimed at budget visitors but still fell short of hospitality. Though we booked Delux Room, the ambience and setup of the room were average. The toiletries (Medimix tiny soap and 1 mediocre quality brush) given in the hotel were cheap and useless. The only difference between Standard and Delux was the extra balcony that has no proper closure at the bottom of the door, which makes you freeze all night due to outside cooling entering the room, and you will have to pay an extra amount of Rs 350/- for the heater. To avoid falling for these tactics, it's wise to choose a standard room, if you really wanna stay in this hotel. The TV panel in our room had black marks in the middle of the screen and when brought to their notice, they simply smiled and did nothing about it. Eventually, we had to move to a standard room, to save ourselves from the cooling that was entering through the balcony door. They gave us one water bottle as complimentary and denied to give another the next day though we stayed for 2 Nights and 3 Days in that hotel. Though the taste of the food (only available on pre-order) was decent, the price was too much for a hotel like this and they denied to accept card payment for food.

Personal Comment to Management: As long as you see the guests as an advantage to exploit the opportunity of tourism spot, you cannot score brownie points on Hospitality. Also, know that you OWE us quality service for every penny we pay. I have been very generous to rate 3/5 hoping you will learn and change the way you function. Good Luck.

Location is very good just beside Coakers Walk. Lake, Botanical Garden and Bus Stand are just within five minutes walking distance. You can't reach hotel by walking with your luggage from Bus Stand.

I booked room with balcony.

Room was nit and clean with cozy bed, sofa set and safety locker.

Staffs are very helpful. Local people are also helpful.

Astoria Veg Hotel is awesome.

Kodai Lake is beautiful.

Botanical Garden is also good.

Hand made chocolates are very tasty.

You will find varieties of oils in Kodaikanal - - sandal, olive, eucalyptus, citronella, citriodora etc. etc.

Entire environment of Kodaikanal is awesome. I can't write it properly. Just go and feel the ambiance and enjoy your life.

I wish to visit Kodaikanal again.

Very friendly staffs. Decent stay for family. Amazing valley view can be seen from 2nd floor of the room balcony. Very near from major attractions. But no restaurants near by this is the only cons. Some disturbance was there from the under construction building near by.

The only advantage of this hotel is the location.
But the standard room we got was quite small. I guess from the reviews, the deluxe room might be good in terms of size, but it was not available when we booked. I would have given a 4 star rating if the facilities were better. But there were quite a few areas of improvement. 1. Hot water available only for a limited time in the morning and evening. 2. Wifi available only during the day when no tourist really stays in the room 3. There is a coffee maker in the room, but no coffee or sugar or anything. When we asked for it, they brought a bowl of coffee powder and kept in the room (no sugar or creamer!) .
At 2500 per room, it was not really worth the money spent.

Room tip: Choose a deluxe room
