We just loved this hotel, nestled in the grounds of a Catholic church, in the Nilgiri hills. You stay in little bungalows overlooking fantastic rose gardens, the bird song was just fantastic, we sat outside our bungalow for hours just listening to them. The restaurant was a lovely wood panelled room with a log fire in the evening as it... More

I was back in Coonoor after 20 years and the experience was lovely. The hotel's activity coordinator took us on a 6 mile walk through a tea estate this morning. Clearly the highlight of our visit. We were at 213. A small, quaint and warm thingy very suited for our one night stay. We will be back!

Love this hotel stayed 2 nights, upgraded room was large and full of character, marble bathroom and separate dressing room, all rooms individual. Had delicious lunch in the sunshine in our own bit of garden. Breakfast excellent and the staff very friendly.

What fabulous hospitality. We were warmly welcomed with a complimentary drink and garlands and shown to our room which was absolutely massive. The furnishings are very old style and rather dark for my personal taste but the king sized bed was very comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean. Delicious meal and excellent service.
