You can thik about Hotel rifaya. It's cheap and best hotel. You may face little difficulty to find it, but they used to provide pickup from bus stop. But One thing i would like to suggest that, don't take sideview from hotel. They used to charge more money for sideview. For sideview you can contact directly to travel agent. You can easily find travel agent new kodaikanal lake.
