Excellent services from all angles and we are pleased on the hospitality shown to us by the front office team. Mr.Sajikrishna, FOM was very kind and they rendered round the clock service. We prefer always Sterlings because of their quality service and good hospitality... Thanks to one and all... Kudos to Shajikrishna , Sanjeevi and team FOM.. Best Wishes...

The stay was very good. Especially candle light dinner arranged by Mr.Ramesh was really great. One small suggestion to the management please do shuttles to Kodaikanal bus stand, lake area from resort.

Hotel location is excellent....the rooms,restaurant, and the activities all is very well maintained... House keeping service was provided by Mr. Chaitanya whose behaviour was up to the mark and according to me he should be promoted by hotel management.
