nice place to stay. Good ambience , non veg food was ok. Quality can be further improved by adding more dishes. Staff is poor in english they speak only tamil. Pool area is good for family. No taxi arrangement for guest charges very high from outside. Bar is ordinary.

I was here on an official visit with my colleagues; we stayed here for 3 days. The resort is quite well-maintained and is huge. The staff is very friendly and we always got service with a smile. The food was average though the desserts (payasam, gajar halwa, gulab jamun, etc.) were quite good. Breakfast was delicious - I loved the... More

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
