We stayed here for 3 Nights 4 Days and we had a peasant stay. The hotel is very near to Kodai lake. Rooms were small but neat with clean washrooms. Hotel staff was friendly. and they helped us to plan our itinerary. Overall its a budget friendly hotel.
Food was very nice, rooms very clean. Only 3 things I would like to mention for improvement---- 1)Room heater was given after paying additional charges...they should provide it mandatarily & of bigger size ,so that room warms up fast. 2)Water heater took 15minutes for heating, which wasted lot of water,as you have to allow cold water to flow. 3) last day we had our complimentary breakfast at 9:45.( Breakfast is available upto 10am only). By that time,everything was almost over, cold ...no efforts were made to make it warm, in spite of knowing we were to finish breakfast. Rest all was OK...dinner was good quality, fresh. Rooms neat n tidy
I dont know about other hotels in Kodaikanal but the pictures for Varaha valley looked really good when i booked the place. However on reaching the hotel after a long journey, I was disappointed. I had taken my parents for a vacation and wanted them to have a comfortable stay but I will give the hotel an average rating in terms of comfort and services. We asked for 2 rooms side by side but we didnt get it. We asked for a room on the 1st floor but we didnt get the same and we got rooms on the ground floor. It was extremely cold and there are no slippers in the room so carry a pair else its possible that your feet freeze and you dont feel them after some time. There was no hot water when we checked in so we had to get that checked by the staff. The rooms were not clean even though i had informed them well in advance that we would be checking in by 7:00 PM. The bed covers were not clean either and we had to get them changed in one room. There is no hot water in the wash basin and no amenities apart from soap. Which means no shampoo, moisturizer, Brush etc so you should carry your own. The rooms and the bed was comfortable otherwise. I did not like the breakfast menu at all. There was no al-a-carte for dinner. they only serve buffet so we had to look for places nearby to have dinner. This wont be a problem since the hotel is in close proximity to the Kodai lake and a lot of restaurants. The only good part is that its close to the lake and the room is beds are comfortable once you are tired and just want to sleep. The Reception was accommodating. Listened to the complaint and tried to help as much as they could. Please dont order tea. Its not good at all.
I stayed here for 2 nights and Its mentioned that the hotel is a 3 star property but I feel its not...The food served in breakfast and dinner was very good, but the service is not in a professional way even though the service guys served in better way. There is no view from the deluxe room .. and the room we stayed was close to the public road so the noise was more.. Still its suggestable to the travelers those who want to stay for a night with very nice food ,who doesn't want a good view or better outdoor ambience.
Well, I stayed at Varaha with my family and kid on Oct 8th . First of all the location is good and its very close to Kodai lake, Room are nice and hot water was provided in our rooms. We had complimentary breakfast in the morning and it was also nice. Rooms service was good. Car parking is on the down floor and also a small children play area nearby. However I would suggest minor improvement in areas of : Customer interaction and Proper maintenance of the rooms. Otherwise all was good and I enjoyed my stay at Varaha. Thank you team for making my stay an awesome and memorable!..Cheers!! George Mathew
