A good hotel opposite the lake
A nice hotel in front of the lake over seeing it . Guess it's the only star hotel in Kodaikanal facing the lake . The rooms were nice and cosy . Service was decent upto five star levels. Nothing much to rave Abt the food but , but that's the case in hill stations always . Overall a nice place to be in .
