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

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.

Stayed for couple of nights for an event. Good location, on the foot hills of Nilgiris. My friend even spotted leopard just outside off the fence since this place is near the forest. 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

I reported on Black Thunder nesrly 4 years ago, and was kind enough at the time. I took into account the strange nature of all Indian establishments of this type and was favourable. Things change. I am here and can't wait to get out. I would love a shower. Ha ha! I would have a bath but it is filthy.... More

for a one night stay on route for the Ooty train. The room was large and although the 3rd bed was missing this was quickly set up. Nice large private balcony overlooking the gardens. The picnic breakfast for the train was disappointing but edible. The front desk staff tried to charge us for tea we never had and when this... More
