Used this hotel for one night before catching the train to Ooty. The hotel is... fine. The room and en suite had seen better days but was clean, had good air-con and was perfectly OK. The staff were some of the least friendly people we met in India, which was a shame! One of the waiters was very pleasant though.... More

Well, we needed a stay for the night before the early morning railway tour. Rooms spacious and ok. For Dinner we had Club Sandwich, ok. The Train leaves at 700 to Ooty and the railway Station is just 10 minutes by car. Ths is the main reason to stay here. Nothing Special but acceptable for overnight.

We read reviews of this place beforehand and thought the very negative ones were probably an exaggeration...they were not!. To be fair the location is very nice, the resort is butted right up next to the Western Ghats and there are some lovely bamboo trees, colourful flowers and lots of monkeys everywhere. On our arrival we were met (not greeted)... More

We had read the reviews and thought we were sort of prepared, but not for the reality. Such a miserable reception - not a smile, not a welcome just given a key and asked for passports. Arriving at the room to discover the beds unmade and the bathroom in a state of disarray. Another room was found for us which... More

Environment outside this resort is superb ! One could take a walk within the resort enjoying the calm & green surrounding.Sit outside the room or in the balcony and read your favourite books. Great relief for children to enjoy water games in the adjacent Theme Park managed by this resort's owner.One could choose this for Business meetings & stay despite... More

Really worth for what i have paid. Good resort for a family stay. We got a offers with the theme park tickets bcos of the stay. Give a try if you are planning to go to theme park as well. Multiple entry in day to the theme park is alloweded bcos of the stay. Mountain view also good.

Bath rooms need lot of improvements and spotted couple of cockroaches. Bath towels were not upto the mark. Even the SPA faiclity was not availble because some... More
