Excellent Hotel. Big rooms, Restaurant Food is very nice. Near to Tea factory. Very neat & clean , Co-operative staff. Excellent view of Ooty from the hotel. Hotel is slightly far from City & you must have your oen vehicle.

Rooms are very clean and well maintained, staff are very friendly and good hospitality. Restaurant is also very good and they offered good quality food, only one thing missing [temp. controlled swimming pool] enjoyed a lot and will visit again.

The rooms and hotel interior look very great in the pictures but in reality they look worn out and old. It appears that the hotel is trying to be high class but fails to be so. Yet it charges like a high class hotel. However I was happy with the amenities and location of the hotel. You can get nice... More

Rooms are very neatly maintained, very beautiful manicured gardens. For the amount they charge it was surprising to see that the bathrooms did not have basic things like hair driers, toilet kits etc... Be prepared to loose your mobile connection, your mobile might not be reachable in many room, may be its bliss for people who want to be entirely... More

I have traveled with my family for 2 nights stay at Sinclairs. I would recommend this hotel as the scenic beauty is awesome from the hotel. The entire valley can be seen from their. The site-seeing points like the Doddapeta peak and tea museum is 10 mins... the Hotel services are excellent... the food is good...

This hotel is located near the Tea Museum, and has beautiful sweeping views of Ooty. The lobby and restaurant is at the top floor with all rooms in the lower three levels. Make sure you get a deluxe room for the town views, as the premiums look out to the sides of the hotel. (or other way around) The room... More

When we planned for OOTY, we thought of staying at a good place, which is little out of city chaos and is high up in mountains. Sinclair retreat just served the purpose aptly. It is a beautiful and peaceful retreat with cozy rooms, excellent facilities, lush green gardens. Sinclair retreat gives you a " from top view" of OOTY city... More
