We were a group of 4 friends who visited Coonoor recently and stayed at Wallwood Garden. We stayed in Gulmohar and Jacaranda. The place more than met our expectations. The stay was comfortable and Geeta with her staff was absolutely brilliant. The food was delicious and gave us the feeling of a home cooked meal. The "non hotel" hotel is... More

My husband and I spent 3 comfortable nights at Wallwood Garden. We arrived from Mysore to a warm welcome from Geetha and her small staff.

Wallwood Garden Bit sick of day in day out blazing sun and heat? So were the early British merchants. I'm not exactly sure how they made the journey West from their trading posts from Chennai downwards because even now it's time-consuming. There's the Nilgiri Express from Chennai which mimicks their movements and there are a variety of transport combinations from... More

Wallwood Bungalow in the lovely highlands and tea country of Coonoor was a welcome respite after days of travel and one night at a time stops for a week.

We arrived at night and were kindly greeted and showed to our 4 rooms. 3 rooms were just lovely, antiques, old-fashioned, huge bathrooms with old-style bathing. Totally charming. The last one was approached from the outside and had moldy carpeting. We requested a change and luckily there was another room, off of the outside dining room, that was available. Hopefully,... More

Wallwood Garden describes itself as a 'non hotel' and that is very accurate. If you want a glossy, corporate look-alike hotel in Coonor, don't stay at Wallwood Garden! But if you want a fascinating, welcoming, charming, one-off sort of place with a real heart, Wallwood Garden is for you! Breakfast is a bit on the minimal side, but everything else... More

Lovely old building that has been given over to a hotel with little done to change the way it was. Staff, especially Geetha, could not be more helpful. A little out of town but for one night it was ok. It's a part of a heritage property group with a great selection of buildings around the country. Fan heater, supplied,... More

Good and heritage property. Geetha and her team is very co-operative, hospitable, courteous. Windows could be repaired, as during night windows has openings and chill from outside creeps in. For age of the property, it's well preserved, gives original feeling. We friends and families with kids had good stay. Enjoyed the feel of being in non-hotel hotel. Meals need to... More

We booked this place for a late December trip with visiting friends. Because of the Neemrana name, I booked it confidently only to be highly disappointed upon our arrival. It's definitely the least expensive of the Neemrana properties, however, there is no justification for lacking hygiene, some sense of style and no running water. The upside: - the staff, especially... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Two hours from Coimbatore, Wallwood – earlier known as Blair Atholl – in the heart of upper Coonoor, was built over a hundred years ago by a Scottish Major General, hailing from the village Blair Athol in Scotland (the Duke of Atholl still lives in Scotland in his own castle). Wallwood was later sold to a British couple after the First World War, who ran it as a boarding house for many years. It was purchased by Liptons before the Second World War and the house has remained in the hands of tea companies – currently with Matheson Bosanquet.The Mansion has retained the atmosphere of the past when tea estates had their own lifestyle! It has its own prize-winning garden of the Nilgiris overlooking a unique pomological garden. It is located two minutes from Sim’s Park, one of India’s most luxuriant Botanical Gardens, laid out in 1874 with over 1200 species of plants and many old rare trees like the Rudraksh, Paperwood, Elephant Leg, Strawberry Tree etc. Savour the wildlife sanctuaries of Ooty, Pykara, Kotagiri & Bandipur, driving through the lush tea plantations of the Nilgiris. ... more   less
