We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in an Executive Suit which was just amazing. The room and the bathroom are very good and well maintained. The service is awesome and the food is also good. It is slightly expensive but there is no decent place around Coonoor to eat food. You would have to go to Ooty for... More

A colonial property, well maintained having a very courteous staff..Their USP is F & B.. Chef Ramalingam doing excellent job....superb food and very peaceful surroundings... Not much of view though... But if you want to relax, go back to nature with superb food.....This is the place !!!

We only stayed one night at this hotel en route to Kabini. After 12 hours in the car we were just happy to get there and didnt really know what to expect. What we found is a lovely heritage hotel in a beautiful and tranquil setting. The rooms were part of the old priory so have lots of history and... More

Ours was a short two day trip, for leisure. And we hit the right place. This place is nothing but serenity, I would say dont chose it if you plan a sightseeing trip cos you would not enjoy the stay then. You have access to large garden where you can sit down and relax the entire day, for sun in... More

We were grateful for the upgrade from basic double room to a suite, numbered 104. It was just like going back in time but with modern day touches. The fabric of the building still seems the same and there was a slight musty smell unavoidable due to the climate I would imagine. Our suite was huge with an entrance hall,... More

Wonderful, friendly greeting and shown our delightful, pristine and huge rooms - in little cottages to the side of the main building. Due to the altitude and damp atmosphere, the rooms and linen had a slight mildewy smell but probably unavoidable in that climate…. The main hotel has charming wood panelled rooms, including a bar with suitable, colonial memorabilia and... More
