We visited this place for dinner once. The service of the staff really impressed us. They were really co-operative when they saw a toddler. Made lot of efforts to make him comfortable. Now comes the restaurant review. They not only offer the same menu as "Earl's Secret", they do offer the same taste. I was really impressed with the food.... More

We had enjoyed the stay in Sherlock hotel. The staff were very professional and helpful. The hotel overlooks a valley and has a very good view. The secluded surrounding gave the peace that required for a vacation. The rooms were spacious and clean, though the furniture were looking old, maybe that's to maintain the ambiance of the Sherlock theme. The... More

This resort is pretty close (4kms) to the center of Ooty, but it is calm, nice and has the best view of the valley. The resort has a good lawn and valley view rooms where you can enjoy and relax. The food was awesome and they have multiple cuisines covered. Though this place is amidst the hill, the rooms were... More

If you're idea of a vacation is comfy arm chairs, a roaring fire and a book, then this is the place to be. The quaint architecture and carefully selected interior pieces do transport you back in time. The views, especially at sunset are mesmerising. The service is excellent - a special note of thanks to Mr.Shiva here. The breakfast is... More

We spent two nights on the 23/24th January in this hotel. Our overall impression was very positive. The room was nice, we appreciated the fireplace and your man lighting the fire both evenings also the hot water bottle was a nice novelty. As the hotel is quite isolated we were initially concerned that we would be stuck eating at your... More

Access to Ooty on the ancient railway from Mettupalayam is delightful. First impressions of the Sherlock on the bumpy ride from the town centre are not good but everything improves after that. In clear weather the view over the valley is beautiful and you benefit by being well out of the mayhem in the town centre. The Sherlock is just... More

The Sherlock hotel in Ooty is a small British style bungalow overlooking the valley. The place is well-maintained and manned by very obliging and helpful staff. The rooms are cozy with names from various novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A fireplace in each room keeps it warm in winters. The gardens are pretty and fresh flowers adorn each and... More
