    Overpriced, but we enjoyed out stay

    Great main building, really idyllic setting. Great food, the best in Kodaikanal. The room were ok, but a bit overpriced for what they were. A bit scruffy around the corners. No heating in room. Heater can be provided, but you have to pay extra. However, it is in my opinion the only place to stay in Kodaikanal unless you want to go out side the village.

    In South India the spectacular Western Ghats stretch from Goa through Kerala and over to Tamil Nadu. This picturesque mountain range used to provide some high altitude respite to the British Colonialists when India became too hot for their delicate sensitivities.

    As we opened our sleepy eyes from our overnight bus, we were greeted with lush rolling hills, cool fresh air and never ending winding roads- We had finally arrived in Kodaikanal! What a beautiful place filled with beautiful people! We had arranged, through our lovely friend Lisa Cameron, to stay with Girijia and Viru- an amazing couple who live in an old Portuguese estate 7,000 ft above sea level surrounded by the worlds most extensive rose garden (or how it seemed to us). ...

    ... of us, we both decided that we would only be spending one night there instead of the planned three! We found a much friendlier hotel when we went out for dinner that evening. Kate still wasn't feeling well after two weeks and I had finally managed to wear her down and took her to the hospital. Kate was scared of going to the hospital, but it was clean, quiet and very friendly which was a good job as we went back four more times in ...

    ... now very popular with Indian tourists, is situated in the beautiful Western Ghats; a range of hills (we'd call them mountains in England) that stretch from Mumbai down to the Southern tip of India and dominate the West of Tamil Nadu. They rise suddenly from the sweaty plains around Madurai, and after a couple of hours of hairpins, we stepped off the bus into a very pleasant, very British, 20 -25 degrees ...

    Our next stop was at a viewpoint where the tea plantations started to come into view. They stuck to the hills as far as the eye could see and formed lovely patterns, some in lines and some in squares.

    Manesh told us that the tea at that spot was particularly expensive and that the tea varied in quality depending on where it grew in the department. After a quick photo opportunity we pulled over again to ...
