There is absolutely nothing good about the room. We chose 108 n 106 rooms. Both were equally bad. The impression of room went from bad to worse to worst in the first fifteen minutes after we stepped in. The wash room was stinking to an unbearable extent, the doors are dirty, there were soiled waste scattered all over. When asked... More

The entirely male staff thought nothing of staring at my wife for the entire stay. We were dressed conservatively so I cannot imagine what they would have been like had she been wearing summer clothes. The two rooms we saw were both very dirty and dusty. The first stunk of mould. The one we actually stayed in seemed not to... More

This used to be a good hotel but is now more of a run down 3rd rate lodge. Zero maintenance, bad linen and horrid service. From staff who would rather play cards instead of providing food, to rooms without electricity or hot water, passages without lights and keaky ceilings, the litany of woes could go on. It is all the... More

The room was stinking of mould and covered in mildew. The curtains, carpet, cushions and bed linen were smelling and mouldy. The bathroom roof and walls were covered in mildew and there was a huge hole in the roof. We were on the verge of walking out, when we were taken upstairs and shown a decent room, and informed that... More

Its a good property but the maintenance is really bad. The rooms smell as if they have not been used for long and the service is pathetic. But the property is nice. If you are stopping by shortly then may be you can give it a try but dont expect any hospitality!!

Supposed to be a good hotel long back but lost its glory. Paint peeling at the ceilings is a common sight. The sofa and the blanket stink. The toilet sink is completely stained. No hot water at evenings. The tiled floors are very cold to walk and not advisable at hill resorts. The size of the room is big because... More

Conoor is the Tea Hub of South India and is situated in the Ooty Hills. Unlike Ooty, the weather of Ooty is not very cool, but is pleasant. Velan Hotel is one of the best choice for a budget tourist to Conoor & Ooty, particulary for one who wants to be away from the crowded environment of ooty but wants... More

I did not stay in the property but had come to lunch here. Location The property is located on Bedford road connecting Bedford circle to Orange Grove Road. In short it is perfect to accessing activities on both the sides of upper coonoor. It may be too cut off for some likings especially if you like to venture out in... More

I had stayed here seven years back and it was good that time. Now it is badly maintained. The property is good though. There is a large lawn behind the hotel. But a large number of stray dogs with their poo on the lawns. If you are not careful you will step on them! The rooms are huge with a... More

We checked into Velan to see nice and clean rooms with in built heater which was obviously NOT WORKING. The Rooms are clean and neatly maintained with a TV. There is panoramic and picturesque view of the surrounding hills and area through balcony. The food prepared is with stale vegetables and we had to cancel our order... I think because... More
