Had a great time at this place in April 2015. We were there only for 3 days. Wish we has stayed more. The food was good, the staff were so helpful and available. Had gone with my2 year old daughter. The staff was so mindful about her comfort that they customised the food for her

Just Not worth it at all. The whole hotel is smelly. The rooms are very small and stuffy with funny looking, oversized curtains. Water does not drain properly in the bathroom. The lighting is so not good at all... Makes the room depressing. When we switched on the A/C at about 11 in the night.. black stuff just othe room.... More

We been to Sinclairs on our first wedding anniversary... We reached ooty 19th April... We had booked Sinclairs from 19th to 21st. Though check in time was 12PM we got early accommodation by 9 AM. The location is beautiful and catching on top of the hill. Little distance from main city about 4km but very pleasant and calm place. Room... More

Sadly a showy building & garden , but very poor standard of facilities. The rooms 301 to 312 and corridor had a strong unpleasant odour. Taps were leaking with water on floor of bathroom, temperature control not functional in rooms. Kept moving us from rooms to room, with no change to "smell" in area.!! Staff tried hard to make things... More

This place was a mixed bag of experience. Their rooms, view, housekeeping staff, food, restaurant staff were great. The property is beautiful. The landscaping is fantastic. The amenities are good too. Their front desk staff were un-warm and gave us a feeling that they were doing us a favour by letting us stay. They constantly justified their stance regardless of...

The hotel is bit far from the city but if you have your own vehicle, that should not be a problem at all. In case you don't have your vehicle, you will get auto at a walkable distance from the Hotel. Also, there is a Tea factory/muesum hardly around 5 mins walk from the hotel. So, you can do your... More

We stayed for 2 days during May. Overall it was a good stay mainly the restaurant has a good ambience and good service. It is located on Ooty-Kothagiry road. So dont follow the google map if you coming from coonoor. bcos that will take you to shortcut which is very narrow. Instead come inside the city (near commercial street) and... More

Good location, away from the maddening crowd that is OOTY. Good property. Play with kids on the Hotel Lawns, or trek nearby, or go to the Tea Factory. Lifts were not working during the evenings because of acute power shortage, though the hotel informed us that they are upgrading their backup power.
