Lymond House is a beautiful old building with nice gardens. The staff were also incredibly helpful and friendly. In particular, they organised us a great guide to take us into the tea plantations and show us some tribal villages - we would really recommend doing this. Service in the restaurant was a bit slow, and the rooms were a bit... More

Lymond house is a beautiful 1850 built 6 rooms English bungalow close to the main parts of Ooty. The stay was comfortable as the staff is very friendly and at a min call away if needed. I booked it on discount(travel site coupon) and it was totally worth it. Come here for: 1. If you want to visit colonial times... More

The garden is lovely and relaxing. The hotel is characterful in the main section but the cabins whilst spacious are dark and not well maintained. Bathroom needs modernising and it was cold especially in the restaurant. Food is average and the service poor. No one appeared to be in charge and finding someone to help was not always easy and...

Stayed in this property in October 2013. The property is located in the lane that leads to Taj Savoy. We stayed in one of the suites that is off the main building. The rooms were really large and extremely well appointed. Staff were very helpful and the restaurant served us some really nice continental fare. We visited McIver house in... More

Right from the bookings/ enquiries till the very end of our trip this was trip to remember: Ms. Ambareen, was always patiently answering to all our innumerable questions also gave us the best rates. Once we reached Ooty Ms. Geetha and Mr. Sarnish took over the full responsibilites to make our stay a memorable one. We were a party of... More

An extended family holiday had us book all rooms and cottages at this wonderful property. Great location and large bedrooms, cottages and bathrooms. All areas of this property is thoughtfully appointed and did give us an experience of staying at a colonial home. The staff at the property were pleasing and did their best to accommodate our requests. With about... More

Disclaimer: I have never been to the place. This review is based on the interactions I have had with the manager/owner Ambareen over a cancelled booking. I had booked two rooms for a family stay for two nights in the month of June (13th and 14th). I made the reservation on May 26th. Due to some reason, I had to... More

Picture perfect is what I will say about Lymond House, be it the rooms or the garden or the dining hall or fireplace ... everything is done with great taste. We had booked Westbury and Grace and both were lovely rooms in their own ways. Westbury is cozy and comfortable and good for couples. Grace suite is the first in... More

We loved this place. It is a beautifully tranquil yet convenient spot. The service is wonderful and, as others have commented, the food is exceptional. The building itself has a very old and characterful feel and the rooms likewise. It just feels very grand colonial whilst being a modest and understated building. The rooms have everything that you need and... More

We wanted to spend our anniversary in a quiet peaceful place, which was cooler than Bangalore. This colonial bungalow suited all of our needs. Ooty is surely cooler than Bangalore, although not too much in the summer. The place is really beautiful and gives you a luxurious feeling. Perfect for a relaxing weekend, which was our intention. This is perfectly... More
