It looks a bit of a 60's monstrosity but location takes over and it is away from the madness and dirtiness of Ooty. The rooms are quite tired as are the bar and restaurant area. The evening food is very good and the staff very helpful and keen to make it the right experience for you. Breakfast is 95% Indian... More

My husband and I visited Sinclairs for our honeymoon in Ooty. It was the most beautiful and enjoyable stay!

A very warm welcome by the G.M. Mr. Atanu Das, kick-started our beautiful stay at Sinlairs Retreat, Ooty! The picturesque landscape covering the Nilgiri hills amidst the colourful flora and fauna was a treat to the eyes. The location of the resort is, I feel, the best in Ooty. You can't keep your eyes off the natural beauty as well... More

Sinclairs Retreat is a beautiful resort, located on the hill top giving a full valley view of Ooty. The place is strategically away from the hullabaloo of the city and offers a very relaxing atmosphere and yet remains in the proximity of city life. The rooms are decently spacious and offer view of either the valley or the mountain, as... More

You land in ooty after a curvry ride to enter a property who is destined to cheat. You are lodged into a claustrophobic setting of a small dirty room with worn out towels. They adjust you later after an uproar. The kitchen needs to be revamped. If you like good food please rethink
