I think Sveekar hotel is a good option if you are on a budget but want nevertheless to stay in a charming old colonial house, with an equally charming decadence atmosphere, in a quiet location near the bus and train stations.The house is very beautiful from the outside and among a beautiful green landscape.Even the dirt path that leads there...

It's a very beautiful hotel with a great location. The staff + owner are so friendly. They will help out loads (arrange bus trips etc) and just be around for nice company. I'm very satisfied with my stay at Sweekar.

Homely feeling is what we get in this hotel. The owner and staff are quite hospitable and courteous. If you are new to the town, then you needn't worry as you get very good information of the place from the staff who go out of the way to make you homely and comfortable. The budget is quiet pocket friendly and... More

Simple and basic room, a little dark as the only window is facing an inner courtyard (as most rooms). The building definitely has character and the hotel is in a very quiet area. The manager is very friendly and helpful! Unfortunately hot water is only available in the mornings, and shower and toilet were very dirty (and also very dark).

This budget hotel easily lived up to its Lonely Planet status and as many others have pointed out, its owner is clearly one of its biggest assets: he is friendly, helpful and even took time to explain some of the history of the hotel which used to be a British colonial family house. "Built by the British," he beamed with... More

Perfect budget option! Really homely feel in beautiful surroundings. What really makes this place stand out is the generosity and helpfulness of it's owner. He could not have been more accommodating providing extra blankets when we got cold and getting up very early to make a fire to ensure that there was hot water for all 3 of us. Would... More

If you need a place to crash then you won't go far wrong than the Hotel Sweekar. A sweet converted former British residence with simple rooms. I am not sure what the other reviews were complaining about if I'm honest. Expect rustic but perfectly fine rooms. It isn't the best looking and while yes could do with a bit of... More

After arriving in Ooty during terrible weather we decided to stay somewhere mentioned in the lonely planet. Behind the reception building it is a little bit like a compound with a couple of buildings separated by metal gates and with metal mesh covering the overhead space outdoors. It's not a particularly nice environment, however I admit the experience was made... More
