Apple Valley, Kodaikanal
We had been to Apple Valley resort in November 2015 and found the place to be an excellent one. The hotel is very well placed and 15 mins walk from Kodai lake and Bryant Park. The service of the staff of all the department was very good and were more than helpful. The room was spacious as we had booked triple bed room. The room had warm water dispenser digital locker and good ambiance with nice cosy beds and equally good furniture. The food was very good. They also offered to make some dishes as per our taste. Specially jeera rice, chilly paneer and dal tadka was awesome. They had also arranged for drop and pick up from Kodai road station at 1900/- one way. The driver was also very courteous and the vehicle was upto the mark in all aspects. Overall, we had a very good experience as it was off season. Hope they maintain the same level of service throughout the year.

Overall experience was great and excellent .We were totally 8 members that is four couples with kids.Climate in May was very good and we really had a good time in the foggy atmosphere. And we could also see the entire site seeing point’s clearly.Vatakannal falls and the forest trekking was excellent and the best part in our trip.
Me and my wife went on trip to Kodai on one of the weekends in september, took a ksrtc bus (bad experience),i would go by any private operator like KPN or Sharma. reached kodai by around 8 am. Had booked a deluxe room in apple valley for 1350/ night inclusive of taxes and complimentary breakfast. The hotel is located in the heart of the city in anna salai and is very close to the lake, bus stand and other places. The rooms were really good and great service. Sight seeing is arranged by the front office and on the first day we got a qualis for the 2 of us(800 rs), we went to dolphin nose, a couple of falls (all dried) and went shopping for chocolates, spices and oils. Came back by around 6:00 pm. Food in the hotel is really tasty, service is good. The next day we took a conducted tour from SKT travels, arranged by the front office for 300/ head in a mini bus. He covers a lot of places and is really worth it, ( if u need an individual vehicle it might cost u upto 1800 rs. that day being a Sunday we went to a lot of places like palm forest,coackers park, a few view points,temples etc, took some nice pics of bisons, the guide is very helpful, he clicks snaps for you, explains everything in detail, (but talks only tamil) Make sure you carry some snacks with you as this guys stops at a village dhaba king of a place, which is not really hygienic. he also stops at a govt approved shop for buying chocolates, spices and oils, (this is the best shop in Kodai) make sure you shop all what u want here. we came back by 6:00 PM, had some hot pakoras and coffee for snacks from the hotel itself) Ordered dinner from them which was really tasty. Monday morning we walked to the lake for boating, then visited the Bryant park ( a botanical garden) and came back to the hotel and had lunch. However the checkout time is 10:00 am, but the front office was kind enough to stretch until 11:00 am and kept our luggage when we went out, and also let us use the restroom when we were back. They also arrange a drop to the bus stand or KPN office for 60 rs. Our bus was at 6:00 PM and we reached bangalore by 5 in the morning. Over all a great experience. In the month of september its not very cold, just a normal jacket would do, however it gets cold towards the evening. I did not see a heater in the room, but we had a good blanket to keep us warm. The hotel being fairly new, is very clean and tidy. They clean the room once every day. All places can be covered in 2 days, (in our case sat and sun), Monday till afternoon and in the evening was our bus. They also have mineral water dispensers in the room, u can get hot drinking water as well..we never had to spend on mineral water.
