I went by train to Kodai railway station and from there on by taxi. So the review below is written from that perspective. It was my first trip to kodaianal....so obviously I had few things to learn from it....I have listed that below. Access: If you going by train, its around 80 KMs from Kodai Road railway station. You could get taxi from station to hotel. Journey from railway station is 1.5 hours by taxi and 3 hours by bus. If you are going by you own vehicle, you'll find it good as well. If you are going by train/bus, make sure your hotel is near to bus stand or has accessibility to other city points. I found most of the hotels were far (not walkable) from bus stand/lake. Parking: The Hotel has no covered parking but has space to park about 10 cars, just in front of its entrance. Location: --------- Hotel is located at around 0.5 KMs from lake which is hotspot of Kodaikanal and bus stand which is vicinity of lake. So in morning/evening, you could walk to lake and evening,

If i visit again to kodai, i will definetly take the same Hotel. Excellent room.. Very well maintained.. The wall hanging at the reception is tooo good. One snap there is a must. Room Ambience and fragrance is tooo tooo good. I suggest every one to take this room. Complimentary BF and Dinner were up to the standards n stomach full. Only issue is with the approach road. Dont take the road from Lake to this hotel . Inside take the road from Kurunji temple side. That is better road. Stay in this hotel made my trip... most pleasurable.

I travelled to Kodaikanal in April, 2009. With Hotel Grand Palace, it was a very good experience, especially compared to Hotel Preethi Palace in Ooty, where I visited 2 weeks before Kodaikanal trip. On reaching to Kodaikanal Bus stand, we called up hotel and they arranged for car pick-up. The service was good, even though it took a bit of more time for taxi to arrive at bus stand. But they charged me for that, which I suppose should be complimentary considering that hotel was not that much far from bus stand. On reaching to Hotel, it looked grand, living to the name. The room was also good, clean and well-kept. Had carpet as well, which becomes very important in cool Hill stations. Bathroom/commode was clean and had a note "Disinfected". Gave a good individual care feeling. Bathroom had notes 'Do not waste water' but to get the hot water from the tap, as per advice from service boy there, I had to take out 2-3 buckets of cold water. Food was average to good. Had dinner there once. Guy

WRONG RATINGS---COMMENT DDOES NOT MATCH was very much exciting about the stay at the Hotel Grand Palace, since I had booked the room for my honeymoon. As me and my wife entered the hotel, we were welcomed by host of flies at the reception and there is no one to welcome you. As I enquired at the reception about my booking, I was asked to wait for 5-10 minutes. I got the room after 10 minutes, the service guy took our luggage to proceed to the royal room in the first floor. As we came near the room I saw the housekeeping people still cleaning our room. We had to wait for another 15 minutes, till they are done with their job. Once we entered the room, we felt that the room is not worth the price. The room is small even though they call it royal. They do not have neither fan nor AC. Overall these are the comments on the stay at Hotel Grand Palace: 1) They do not have room service for food. They have it just for Coffee/tea. 2) The room service guys do not understand neither English nor H

We stayed for 2D/2N at grand Palace and overall it was a pleasant experience. Positives: 1.Location was good. Walking distance from lake and city. 2.Hotel room was very clean and well maintained. Negatives: 1.Dining was very bad. The buffet dinner menu is very limited. They give you small servings and they run out of food easily. 2.Had problems with hot water in room. However, they provided hot water buckets. 3.Check-out time is 9 AM. Overall good experience, and value for money.

The room was good, service was also good but nothing exceptional. There was one problem of no hotwater, especially in a place like Kodai I feel hot water is a must. Though they had timings for hot water and all, atleast in our room we never had hot water. Food options is very limited. Our room included breakfast and dinner and it was same for all three days with minor changes. We had idli vada and bread everyday for breakfast and there was noodles everyday for dinner. Though the room service, house keeping service was very prompt and pretty good, the hotel falls back on some shortcomings. Rooms were maintained neatly, overall it was a good experience.

No adequate hot water supply. No immediate response from the staff. Even Escalation to the Manager had no effect. Quality of food was horrible. No courtesy for customer staying. I do not see the hotel management is serious about customers. Also during our stay the hotel organized party with drinks for another customer which was highly uncomfortable for family people like us staying. This is not the Hotel I would suggest for anyone in future. Overall our experience with this Hotel is Pretty bad.

Grand Palace is best in budget type of hotels. It is located near Kodai lake. The check-in procedure at the hotel was quick and the staff were very friendly. The rooms were clean and well-laid and the bathroom, though small, was reasonably clean. A highlight of this place is the restaurant, which serves very delicious food at reasonable cost. One problem, I faced was related to hot water coz hot water was available from 7:30 to 10:00 (Morning and Evening) only. The overall experience at the hotel was good and I recommend it for budget travelers looking to stay for a short time.

Hotel Grand Palace @ Convent Road, Kodaikanal is a decent option for people looking for a 3-4 day visit with a budget of 7-8k for 3 adults and a child. The hotel is just about 1 km from the lake, the hotels located near the lake are expensive. One can take a walk from the hotel to the lake or else just outside the hotel you can find local taxis to take u around after bargaining. The room service and ambiance was good with hot-water available from 7.30am-10.30am and 7.30pm-10.30pm. The food (veg only) in the restaurant is reasonably priced but nothing to crave about. The complimentary b/f is just about average. Would suggest to have lunch or dinner in any of the restaurants near the main bus-stand, Astoria is a good option for veg food. The Travel Desk at hotel GP have different sight-seeing options which are on the higher side, but would recommend to opt for the local taxis outside the hotel to strike a good bargain, if you are traveling in a group it will be per-head.

We were a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. Was initially given a double room with the option of putting 2 more mattresses which would make the room very crowded. But, when I told the same at the front desk, I was given a triple room and I had a nice stay. Got the dinner and breakfast free with my booking and the food was good. Only suggestion I have is that the front desk could be a little more manned during the nights. No isues with the billing nor the cleanliness. I recommend the hotel. Location is 2 min away from the lake.
