The rooms were as such big but just like any other village house room. Price is quite high considering what they have to offer. For a charge of 500 extra they mentioned breakfast which was upma or pongal for 2 people. They charged tax however did not provide a valid bill. Location is good very near to the botanical gardens...

Visited Ooty between 20th and 22nd of June. I wasn't expecting much from the place as it was a last minute booking and did not have too many options either but boy ! I was blown away by the simplicity and grandeur of the place. Right in the middle of the city but tucked away from all the hustle bustle.... More

We had the 2 Bed Room suite on the first floor. The room as such had nothing to complain about, though the toilets could have been better, but the entrance was smelling pretty bad with all those unused beds and furnitures stored near the stairs colleting a lot of dust. The mixed smell of wood polish + unused mattresses and... More

We stayed here from 3rd June to 7th June. One of the best Homestay's we have ever stayed. Nice location and away from the hustle and bustle of the ooty town. Special mention to Mrs. Jyothi, the caretaker. Highly recommended. P.s: We stayed with our pet, she just loved it :)

...with lovely gardens and reception rooms . The third bed although booked was not set up and the bathroom could have done with a scrub but there was plenty of hot water and the extra bed was made up quickly. The rooms have no tea making facilities but our morning chai was cheerfully delivered by the congeinial staff.

Probably a unique experience staying in this old colonial house that we were told is an 'illegal' hotel to avoid taxes and so provides virtually no services. We had a choice of three grand rooms with parquet flooring and large double beds and basic en suites but nothing else. Eventually someone came and made up the bed and bought us... More

This property is superb and quite reasonable. If you wish to stay in Ooty and close to the attractions around, this place is quite convenient. However, no in house restaurant but a pleasant lady staying in the property would serve when ordered.
