I recently had been to Sherlock for 2 nights in Winter of 2014. It's an excellent hidden little gem in Ooty. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms may look old but it's an old English charm that works. Sherlock themed hotel! View is amazing and the best USP of this hotel. The road leading to hotel is very... More

I cant believe the rave reviews on this place. We stayed 2 nights November 2014. Up and up until at last arrived at end of a track on the roof of the world. First impression, lovely. As soon as we got through the door we were met by wall to wall gloom and it smelt stale and musty. We have... More

Located on a pot holed track on outskirts of town. Don't believe the reviews you read. Our room was small and over crowded with furniture. Very dark, and the fireplace made the entire room smell like a coal. No hot water even after we asked for it to be fixed. Couldn't get the WiFi password from any of the staff.... More

When we reached the hotel, the very first expression from my 3-yr-old daughter was "beautiful !!!" - that says everything. Food was excellent - specially the continental dishes. Hospitality was also awesome. Rooms were neat and clean. Location wise also this is very good though I liked the surrounding beauty of different guest house in a tea estate in Coonoor... More

The place is a little away from the hustle of city. On top of a hill and about 3 kms away from the main bus stand. One must either have their own vehicle of like us look for auto walas (easily available). They will typically charge 150 rs for one side trip. Now onto the hotel, property is very nice... More
