The best thing about the property is the excellent location - mins walk from the main town area and yet quiet. And the amazing staff - going to the extent of playing cricket with your child if your child is alone. Hotel also takes a real effort to organize activities eg magic show/painting for the kids during season. Food has... More

Good, nice, very relaxing stay. We went in August, so it was lush green all around and we could spend good family time. Staff are friendly and helpful. Food is decent. May want to include some sightseeing in itinerary. Only shortcoming I felt was you really can't enjoy all parts of the property. Recommended for a family outing.

We had a great meal at the Dining Hall of this very friendly Hotel in Coonoor. I may admit that the food was not outstanding, but the friendliness and the genuine desire of Chef Ramalingam to make our experience memorable compensated for any minor culinary shortcomings! We had roast lamb with roast potatoes, which was almost outstanding, and the caramel... More
