Dont Go!! Dont Go!!

I had the worst experience at Kodai cliff club. Let me explain the entire 2 hellish days. This place is situated in an inner place and with various sign boards we reached the place. We saw the reception room but no one was there. We called the phone number which we got after booking through goIbibo. The guy who took it gave another number and after calling that number they said to come to a different place. We were very surprised as the pictures in goIbibo were same as the place we were standing at right now but still we were tired and wanted to just get checked in. so we went to the new place which was "hill view" hotel in nadaipuram. They showed 2 well maintained hotel rooms which resembled lodge rooms. We were very disappointed as the money paid by us was with the assumption that we will be staying in a neat, decent place with promised amneties. When we told the same and demanded some refund as compensation, the hill view representative said that goIbibo is already intimated about this change and thats why even though the pictures are of old place, the address was different. I understood it was just a lame excuse from them as no one from goIbibo told me anything in this regard and also the expectation that a person who has no clue about kodaikanal is expected to know the address and not the pictures given in site seemed very stupid.However after some discussion he made some phone calls and informed us that rooms are available in the actual place. We then again travelled 10 km back to the place we started. They gave 2 rooms (D block)which were at the top of the all the places. A steep flight of steps led us to the D block. No one assisted us with our luggage. On seeing the rooms, we were devastated. There was basically nothing in it. No pillow, no geyser, no blankets, no towels, no locks on windows, no tv, no soap, nothing!!. I went back to reception and asked for all this and he apologised for everything and asked us to "adjust" for the day and promised he will give new room in block B or C next day. We didnt have any strength left and decided to just get punished for blindly believing the pictures available in "Goibibo". There was no phone to call reception area from room. For every thing, I had to go down to reception and ask for the update and then climb back the entire steep steps. This happened multiple times. The staff even though polite, was not able to deliver any of the promises and finally he even went to the extent of asking me to carry a tv set from below to the room as the place was under staffed. I realised I made a very big mistake!!.We slept the night without even having a pillow cover and the pillow was thick and had big stain marks all over it.(excuse given was laundry didnt come back that day) We didnt get hot water to take shower and I ended using cold water to bath(at late night). Hoping the first day wont repeat, we asked for the break fast and the reception guy said it will be coming soon. I had to go out many times, to get an update on our break fast and it was by 11 am that they were able to give 2 idlies and 1 uthapam as break fast!!. Our plans to visit many places of kodaikanal was affected by their late service. We just wanted to get the hell out of the place but felt like being forced to be there as there wont be any rooms available at the last moment in other resorts for an affordable price. They however changed the room for us and gave 2 rooms in B block. Since we knew what can be expected, we just decided to go through with the second night. Next day we were so happy that we were going to check out and head for the next destination. We made sure to get the breakfast as early as possible(this time it was just one slice of bread omlette). While checking out, the reception guy said breakfast was not complimentary and as I was about to call Goibibo and get them involved, he made some call and said the breakfast is included. This is the terrible experience we had at "Kodai Cliff Club". I just wanted to point out that the staff was very polite because every single time i confronted him all he said was " I am really very sorry, we dont have enough staff to cater everyone's need. Please adjust". As a customer who paid decent money to have a great time with family, I cant sympathise with the staff as I feel they should have stopped their bookings if they felt they cant handle the guests!.

Great view. Ordinary service. Great view. Ordinary service.

The location and view of the hotel makes it worth the shot. It is 8 kms away from the town and that helps it to differentiate with the view. Will I choose to stay at this hotel again. Yes. It is quite affordable too making it one of the best finds in Kodaikanal. Good things about this place: 1. Quite place with lots of tranquility with a great view from the room itself. 2. There are some easy but interesting nature walks/treks from the hotel which would take you 2 hours to and fro. It is a must to go for them if you are staying here. 3. Rooms are bigger as they are traditional. 4. 24 hours electricity and hot water through electric geyser. Things to improve or disadvantages of staying at this place: 1. Kodaikanal does not have autos. So going to this hotel from the city costs Rs 300 one way and vice versa. 2. Food is pretty ordinary with the breakfast being the best. 3. The rooms are pretty old and traditional just to set the expectation right. Hope this info helps people to prep for a stay at this place better if one wants to. :)

We found this by serendipity. Originally booked a "highly rated" budget hotel through Expedia. But found, upon arrival, that Expedia did not conclude the transaction with the hotel. Expedia, as one would expect, tried to find us another hotel within the same budget and booked us into "Cliff Club". Whatever reviews we could find Cliff Club were unappetizing, and we grudgingly started driving to Cliff Club. Another Surprise - GPS took us in a completely different direction (towards Coacker's Walk) but some kind soul gave us driving directions to this place which is some 6 KM ahead of the entrance to Kodai. But once we reached the place, we couldn't shake the smile off our places. Nestled in Hills, with beautiful view of Valleys, with Sparse company (Country Club has a resort close by), this is just the place of unwinding. We stayed there for 2 days and 2 nights, but spent just 4 Hrs the usual tourist places of Kodai. rest of the time was spent in doing short treks around the place, interspersed by watching IPL matches or enjoying in-room dining. Overall, one of my best vacations so far. Pro's of this plaice: 1) GREAT location, 2) Very Reasonable Pricing, 3) Helpful Manager and Staff, 4) Excellent room service, though the choices are limited. Con's of this place: 1) The rooms/suites are little old fashioned (not surprising, considering that the property is actually old).

We had a very poor experience, partly because our booking and expectation was of a small comfortable hotel. The place is tucked away on a small street without signs, and their contact numbers were of no help, especially arriving in the evening. Nice hill side location. In itself it's an OK bare minimum place with sort-of clean sheets, and a large bathroom. Hot water only in the mornings. The staff were very helpful given that they knew this was not what we expected. They had poor instruction from our travel agent. My conclusion is that it's sufficient if you're traveling rough, and need a good wash & a bed for the night. Otherwise not recommended.
