I could have never imagined that a place as magnificent as this one could bw located in the middle of the bustling town of Ooty. All the major sight seeing places in Ooty like the boat house, botanical garden and the market are within 10minutes of drive. Basic, clean rooms at very reasonable cost. Did not try the food here....

This property is very old. Situated on a high point in Ooty, this 20 room bungalow is surrounded by trees and small garden. It was going under renovation. Lot of water seepage was noticed. Room charges are not much but charges for use of geyser, Cable TV, heater etc are extra, which comes to around Rs.300 to Rs.400 per day.... More

A quaint little place nestled in 8 acres of woods. In the madness that is now called Ooty, the Ratan Tata Officers Holiday Home retains its unique identity of a hill resort. Once a convalesce home for the British officers, it was handed over by the Tatas to the Indian army after independence. It has 13 rooms, which are not... More

This is an excellent location for getting the real feel of Ooty. A pristinely maintained 144 year old bunglaw, it's surrounded by trees on all sides giving it an exclusive, secluded feel. It's run by defence, so everything is well maintained and timely. Can't think of a better place to stay in Ooty. Best for families.

We stayed in this place on a transit halt (1 night) during a short marriage trip to Kinnakorai. A truly vintage atmosphere complete with wooden flooring/ a nice bar & restaurant. Reminds me of the old world bunglows, complete with antiques & paintings. We had a pleasurable stay and look forward to visit again; this time for a longer stay.

Stayed at RTOHH from 19th July to 21st July. Set in a quaint old bungalow which is over 100yrs old it transports you to a different era feels like you are walking into scene from one of Ruskin bonds stories set in the hills. The wooden flooring, the vintage piano & type writer in the lounge area, the old paintings... More

It was a pleasure staying at RTOHH at ooty, it felt safe and definitely it was a very clean place with beautiful play area, recreation room, and a formal dining area. Food was simple and best, no complications, well maintained and well designated place, would definitely visit again. Worth the money spent.

Ooty is no longer the clean and green queen of the hills that it used to be a few decades ago. Traffic, pollution, crowded roads and a lodge offering home stays around every corner, have become an eyesore for those travellers looking for some peace and quiet. Amongst the commercial and crowded Ooty, Ratan Tata holiday home still remains a... More

The RTOHH is a beautiful, well maintained old world charm, set in the middle of the small hill full of trees. Maintained by the Indian Army, it is located close to many tourist spots. The Udagamandalam (Ooty) railway station is just 10 mins walk. The Ooty lake, Kandal cross church, bus stand etc are around 1-2 kms. The rooms are... More
