We stayed in Bison Valley and the place is serene, peaceful Rooms could have been better, House keeping was not done on a daily basis, Limited ventilaton in the room leading to allergy from insects, Linens were not clean. South Indian food which is more Satvik in nature (Lesser oil, spice and

Throughout our 2 night stay at Devashola the pendulum of this review swung from poor to good and back again. This COULD be a real gem of a place with just a little more consideration and attention to detail. Cons first, so I can finish with the good: Arriving late we were told that we would be served dinner in... More

The shear location of this place makes it interesting because the travel either from Ooty or Coonoor is very picturesque with lots of tea gardens & amazing views.... We stayed in Bison valley row cottage, & the property is just ok... The room size is very small with just two single beds inside. The quality of the room can also... More

It was just awesome. Snuggled in breath-taking greenery,this place gives everything that a nature lover would expect. Mesmerizing morning views would leave you just awe-struck!! I wonder how would it feel to be at this place during the rains.

We had been to Mango Tree, Devashola 5 years ago. The serenity of the property remains as is, which is good. The quality of food had come down from what we had then. Otherwise, if you are looking for off beat, colonial style tea bungalows, I would recommend this place - Lakshminarayanan

Tempting to visit once again. Pros: Location it is like heaven. Food quality. Service. Cons: 1 hr from coonoor town. But I do not want to consider this as cons. Since I already know and well prepared about this distant location.

My wife and I spent a couple of days here in early July. Everything about the trip was good. The property is far from any town and ambient noise. Mostly it is just the people at the bungalow that are around. It is set right in the midst of tea gardens and a patch of shola is not too far... More

We wanted a vacation that was peaceful in a serene place. The palaniappa estate was recommended by a friend and it fit the bill perfectly. We (Self, wife and kid) stayed at the Sultana bungalow since Mango Tree was not available. The view from Sultana was breathtaking with the cloud movement changing the view of the hills every few hours.... More

Nice view, we stayed at Palaniappa Bungalow, two families of us who travelled together, a wonderful and an old building, you cannot expect royalty but definitely all the required basic amenities were met, hardly signals would be caught on your mobile phones. Very good food prepared by the caretakers, Guided trek, the jeep travel inside the estate was really a... More

Enjoy Nilgiris at Mango Tree Bungalow - amazing experience. Far away form modern civilization. Perfect place to restructure yourself. Mobile connectivity is very poor - so nobody will be able to disturb you. Hospitality of the caretaker is excellent. The Caretaker only prepares fresh -good foods/meals. Only problem is - they will serve you South Indian Veg Foods only..
