This is a very picturesque property just outside Coonoor. We rented a scooter in Ooty and went to Coonoor and chanced upon this place. We only stopped by for lunch. Overall the experience was great. They offer India, French and Italian cuisine. We tried a mix of Italian and French and all the dishes were pretty good.

We booked 3 rooms Cranley, Cromwell and Blackwood at the McIver during the Independence Day weekend. We stayed at the property for a couple of days starting the 14th of August. It is a huge colonial era property with sweeping views of the Coonoor town. We started from Bangalore at noon and reached Coonoor around 9PM. Anita and Suresh were... More

After a long drive and over 10 hours of travel, you look forward to your room (clean bed and cleaner showers) with an earnestness that cannot be explained in words. As we crossed the small yet bustling streets of Coonoor, and turned towards 180 Mclver, I silently prayed to the vacation Gods that all goes well with our place of... More

The stay was excellent and peaceful. The food was good and the staff was very helpful. You get 180° view of the Coonoor from this hotel and it was awesome. We had booked room Creswell for the stay and it was well maintained. I would recommend this place to my friends. We loved this place and the stay is memorable.

This is the best place to stay while visiting Coonoor / Ooty.. a beautiful, quaint place tucked away in the hills. The hotel has a beautiful lawn overlooking the valley. The food and service are pretty good, they serve continental as well as Indian cuisines. Very courteous staff.. they even lit a bonfire in the evening at our request.

Wonderful views but not a comfortable chair to sit on to enjoy them. Nowhere comfortable to sit after dinner. Bedrooms absolutely basic for ourselves and our friends. Towels must have been originals. No management around to train or control staff (of which there were few). Group of young people having a party around a campfire with music until 11.30pm. Breakfast... More
