"Seriously I never knew a resort in centre of the kodaikanal with this peaceful and beautiful location and view....! Resort is very near to all the tourist places and town but if you go inside it ll feel like other place...! Very well maintained resort with professional staffs and services....! Am Happy with the stay...! Keep it up...and I suggest this resort to all kind of travellers and it's worth it. Only suggestion is hot water timing...in kodaikanal you should not keep timing for hot water(6 am to 11 am and 6pm to 11 pm)as it is cold all the time every tourist needs hot water at any time....only that thing is the minus.

"The hotel is situated near the lake , which makes it the best location for an evening walk or jog in the morning. The hotel has a kids area one level below with lot of activities for kids from painting sessions to PS4 and Playing board etc are payed down across for a family to play along with their kids. They carts which will take you to your rooms and in the evening you have nice evening snacks counter outside in the garden area , where you can relish “ Bajji’s to also bonda , coffee and tea. The hotel has a playing area for kids as well in the garden area. Overall a great hotel to spend the weekend and the only opportunity area is the service and hygiene of the rooms that’s something which need to improved big time. I did give that feedback to the manager , hopefully they will work towards correcting the same."

"stayed in this hotel from 15th - 17th June with wife and mom-dad.. Although it took some time to locate the hotel as hardly 1-2 hotel direction boards are seen on the way, but all pains were just gone by seeing hotel location and premise. We booked 2 superior rooms but luckily we got a villa suite(2bhk-duplex) having fantastic site. Check-in was quick room look little old but maintained quite well. Specially weather was very good and breezy. It was thoroughly blossoming season everywhere..Being a nature lover we truly enjoyed it! Premise is well maintained and food quality is good.(It takes approx 20-30 mins to serve a dish in case of a la carte food) Its one of the few hotels in kodaikanal which has large premise around and quite near to the city centre. Check out was also smooth and they didn't take even a single penny more then expected. I would definitely recommend this place and would prefer to stay there again."

"Hi All, Am from Pondicherry. we started on 5th June '15 at 11 PM from my place and reached Kodaikanal on 6th June 8AM Actual Check-In time was 10 AM, but arranged us the room at 8 AM itself. Breakfast is delicious. Hospitality at Hotel & Restaurant is just superb... WIFI range is very good but dont forget to get Username & Password from Reception (Login from Mobile Browser to enter Credential and connect to Internet) Room Services are prompt and they provide us food on time On Saturday (6th June), we visited all other places except Kodaikanal Lake. As Hiltop is very near to Lake we went for long walk on the same evening and on 7th June we went for Boating. Only issue we face is there is no Lift in Hiltop Towers. My mom is struggling from Obesity and so it was little uneasy otherwise Rest are Great... Enjoy Guys!!!"

"I booked at Jai Hotel and took a cab to the hotel but was informed by the FO staff that my room is actually at the Hilltop Towers a few Kilometers away. The Hilltop Towers hotel is located right in the middle of Kodaikanal town beside the main road. One has to be able to adjust to the noisy car horns the whole day until around 10pm. The hotel is run down & dusty but the staffs are very friendly and helpful. that is a great plus. The breakfast was great. I was a bit surprised that their check-in time was 10am and check out time 9am. They were very strict about this so I had no cjoice but to check out immediately after breakfast by 9am in a town there was still quite asleep at that time. My bus was at 1.40pm. Overall it was a fairly good place to stay as the parks, lake and shops are all quite close by. "

"My wife, daughter and I stayed for 2 nights and 3 days at Kodai International. Very courteous and friendly staff (Ram, Malar, Durai, the Chef, Prem Krishnan (Ayurveda massage) and almost everyone. My daughter enjoyed the mini farm with Emu, Rabbits, ducks, parrots, etc. Really wonderful estate. Food was overall fine but a special mention to the idlis, one of the best in town. I liked the 24 Hour check in and check out concept and pretty prompt in their service. I recommend this to people looking for an affordable family resort in Kodai. Venkat"
