The climate was very nice as the Hotel was at some height and the rooms were awesome. The amenities were very satisfying.

The hotel is very well maintained, the staff is helpful. I had opted for breakfast and dinner and the hotel staff called us to come for dinner and breakfast. Everytime we called them for any requirement housekeeping items they responded quickly. Food variety was huge, taste was a little bland. But it was very good. Expect non-veg items also to be served other than just one curry (didn't like non-veg). They had displayed a movie for our dinner on the 2nd night of our stay. Rooms were clean and spacious, just like we wanted. Thanks, Hotel Jai for a good stay in your hotel. Will recommend others for sure.
Good service, good room,

Location is ok, but the room they gave us is underground, no scenery no windows open to open area
Kodaikanal, a charming hill Station

The hotel is located near the famous lake and also there are good restaurants and shops nearby. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and spacious but hot water is not available round the clock. The boy attending to us didn't know Hindi or English. Though the quality of food served in the dining hall is good but T & C apply. One has to order dinner by 7 pm and finish dinner by 9 pm. A hostel kind of situation. The complimentary breakfast though good in quality has extremely limited options and purely vegetarian. It makes you feel like you are in Tirupati or Shirdi. The people didn't seem very friendly. Room service which is not for 24 hours is efficient but the warmth is missing.

Very old property! Even the property is old one if they maintained well, then its nice one. Cleanliness need to improve a lot. There is scope of improvements in overall professionalism. Food spread is average.

Subash sukumar , Sep 10, 2019
Hotel located nearby lake initially everyone looked so weird but when time goes on everyone was so understanding and excellent service rooms were good all facilities provided they provide complimentary dinner and breakfast which was better than 5 star hotel foods quality quantity and service You were little short in budget close your eyes book this hotel worth the money. Try avoiding bibles in all rooms.

Stayed with my family for two days. Breakfast was nice but dinner served on both days was horrible. When requested for water to clean my car, I was directed to staff toilet by the security personal. Very bad experience.

Perfect stay for family and couples
Arunkumar Subramanian , Aug 31, 2019
This hotel is located near Kodaikanal lake. Couples can have a small walk to the lakeside in the evening. My actual check-in time was 10 but reached the hotel by 7 and they provided a spare room for me to get ready and they were very kind full. Rooms were well maintained and clean. Breakfast and dinner were extremely good and served at their best. I totally enjoyed staying here. Even after I check out they were kind full enough to keep my luggage in reception and after my sightseeing, I went and took it back. They again gave me again spare room to do some refresh. I feel they take care of individual guest as their own family. When I wanted to book some good hotels near hotels I couldn't get satisfied with user comments for a few hotels. That's the main reason am writing a big review. Couples can book this hotel without any hesitation. Everything was excellent. If I want to say something negative I could say the noise from outside might be a little bit disturbing. Other than that you can enjoy your stay with good food. People who come with own transport, no need to worry you have plenty of places to park. People who book through online check the price with breakfast and dinner and better choose both. Because I felt room without food would be less than what you will have outside. I spent an average price for breakfast and dinner after check out. I felt good that I booked both at the hotel as they provide better food compared to outside.

Stay was good but the hotel was a little far away from main.
Bad memorable stay. Read for full review.
Rudhrashankar K , Aug 29, 2019
Booked for 4 nights. Booked heritage deluxe room type for all 4 nights. But the room provided to me was with zero views. Think about a room with no view of hill or green or at least grass. So I asked for another room, but they gave me a downgraded room which costs lesser than the actual room I booked. In this room, I stayed for 2 nights. For the remaining 2 nights, I stayed in a superior deluxe room which is upgraded room of what I actually booked but this one is with additional charge! What a great policy. When I asked to adjust the price of a downgraded room, the receptionist said downgrade and adjusting the money is none of their business. What a polite reply for a guest who booked for 4 night! Pros: Best hospitality, good parking space, and good breakfast (not the best) Cons: Horrible dinner, which caused food poison twice in my 4-night stay, chicken which they use is not fresh, that's the big issue. Maintenance is very poor. Sink in the room was overflowing. Each day they suppose to give a bottle of water but for day 2, we didn't ask, and they also didn't give. On day 4, we have asked for 2 bottles and they strictly said the additional bottle is chargeable. Kodaikanal town is Around 1. 2 km in Google map but the road is with a lot of steep slopes, which you cannot walk easily. Damn sure, I will not go for this stay again even in my dreams. Hot water is not 24x7. They have a specific time, we can use hot water in that time alone. I traveled with my wife and 1-year-old son. We didn't have a great stay. This Hotel has different pricing for weekend and weekdays and another special price during summer. Which is not at all worth the stay and experience we had. Wifi which they have zero connectivity again. So don't rely on them. Airtel have poor reception in this Hotel area, Bsnl is good. No daily housekeeping.

Good but had issue about heater
Hotel Jai is pretty close to the Kodai Lake. It's well maintained. We had booked a heritage suite. But the room was in the basement with no sunlight coming in. Nor was any room heater provided. It was freezing cold and the moment we entered the room we started coughing and sneezing. I believe heater is a basic necessity in winter in hill stations. I communicated the same to MakeMyTrip and requested them to either arrange for a room heater or get the room changed. All seemed sorted until the moment of checkout. Hotel authorities said that MakeMyTrip has not provided any written communication for the same so you have to pay. We obliged and paid them and contacted MakeMyTrip support. They said they have paid and the Hotel Jai should refund the money to us. So after a lot of trepidation the matter got sorted and we received the refund back and checked out of the Hotel Jai an hour late. Food standards can be improved, especially lunch and dinner. Breakfast was pretty good. Hotel staff was polite. Overall it was a good stay but could have been better.
Cozy little place
We had an awesome time at Hotel Jai. We travelled as a family. I had put up an initial request to the Hotel requesting them a lower floor room since I had my aged parents with us. Even though I didn't get any response I wasn't much bothered, but when we reached there the Hotel staff who are very courteous had already made all arrangements. Loved the service offered. Food is buffet for both breakfast and dinner, and even though the number of items are little what they offer is of extreme high quality food. My little one had a gala time as well with the food as well. The Hotel is an old place, but extremely well maintained. Highly recommended for the cozy rooms, great food and easily accessible place.
Made the right choice!
Keerthana Ajit kudva
We stayed at Hotel Jai Jai for 3 nights. Had booked the heritage deluxe room. The room is quite spacious and comfortable for two, although there isn't much of a view outside as it is situated in the ground floor. We were given 3 complimentary buffet breakfasts and a complimentary dinner by the Hotel Jai. Breakfast was awesome, dinner was average so we chose to order dinner from their ala carte menu instead for our further stay. The best thing was how their staff treated us. They were all very helpful and courteous. Would definitely come back here the next time we visit Kodai.
One of the best hotels ever.
The hospitality of the staff was so warm, they would call us to inform that breakfast and dinner are ready. Food was also tasty. On meeting later they would verify if we had our food and if it was good. Room service was prompt and they also arranged for local sightseeing at a reasonable price. All the support staff were pleasant and they didn't seem trained, taking care was organic to them. Rooms had wooden flooring and furniture, spacious and well maintained. If Kodaikanal, this is the Hotel Jai to stay at!
What a great Hotel in Kodaikanal
I have booked Hotel Jai in Kodaikanal. But due to some construction they opted me to stay in hilltop tower. I was shocked why they say after my booking. But I was really happy to stay in hilltop tower Hotel in Kodaikanal. Because staffs are helping like our family members. When ever you go they guide us to go there or here. Mainly I want to tell about breakfast. Very good quality and quantity breakfast they are providing with free of cost. Totally we enjoyed very well in Kodaikanal and hilltop tower Hotel.
Pleasant and comfortable stay
We stayed in superior double room in Hotel Jai. Rooms were very spacious and comfortable. Hotel staffs were very polite and they guided us regarding the local sight seeing and also arranged vehicles for our sight seeing for two days. It was at a reasonable cost and the drivers were like guides giving informations at all the sites. The complimentary breakfast was good and had a lot of varieties. Very comfortable and pleasant stay.
Really enjoyed the stay. The staff were all very helpful and kind. There were a few defects, the wifi was weak or non-existent. I had to log in each time I went out of the entrance door and the passwords etc, are different each day which I found rather annoying. Secondly the bathroom was leaking into the floor after a shower Would have been nice if there was available a iron box in the room.
Nice place to stay
Spacious room, comfy bed. Very clean. At first they allotted two separate room. We requested to provide single suite room 3+2, then they arranged for us without extra charges. Staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming, moreover location was perfect for exploring Kodaikanal. Whilst the complimentary breakfast was OK, the service at breakfast was pretty good.
Excellent hotel full satisfaction
Loved the stay. Right from check-in to check-out we felt the warmth, care, comfort, assistance and homeliness of Hotel Jay. The staff were super friendly and supportive. The food was tasty, healthy and sumptuous. The room and amenities were great. I will stay here in future as well. The travel arrangements were good. All I can say is thanks.
Awesome stay with family
It was really a great stay at Hotel Jai, we booked heritage deluxe room. The room was quite spacious and had many places to keep luggage and other stuff. Best part of was the awesome bath tub with hot water and bubble shampoo. My kid enjoyed a lot. The Hotel Jai also has bug parking and a very nice garden with lot of plants.
Hats off to the entire staff well behaved, humble and highly accommodative. If you are a mangalore an and vegetarian you will like the food most it is just superb and like marriage function quality food, delicious. Hotel rooms are well maintained, clean. Front desk persons are of helping nature.
Best experience ever
