Quiet and pleasant stay in comfortable, clean spacious room. The fireplace in the bedroom did well to keep the room warm and snug. Staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the coffee that was served..thick and creamy strong...we kept ordering seconds. Food was delightfully authentic and delicious. A pity we visited during the rainy season, the garden has been cut... More

We visited Ooty during the flower show and booked at Glyngarth because of its old world charm appeal, fireplaces & spacious rooms. It has a nice cozy living room where one can spend the evenings during a rainy day. Antique furniture, high ceilings, a small library and a pleasant garden are some of the highlights of this place. We liked... More

+ clean, well maintained heritage building. Retains most of old world charm + helpful staff + quiet location, slightly away from tourist hustle bustle - food could've been better - no in-house bar - fireplace inside the room is not really useful

We went to Ooty in December and stayed in Glyngrath for 2 days. The place is extremely beautiful and well maintained. The rooms are quite big! And as it was winters, we had the opportunity to use the fireplace. The architecture of the property would give you the flavor of EU culture. The staff is extremely helpful. The restaurant is...

Wooden cottage is an amazing place to stay. Its cozy and located on a picturesqe property. Staff is ok. My pet dog had a blast staying there. The porch outside each cootage offered the solitude we were seeking from this trip. You can go boating also if you get bored of watching cable inside.

One cant stop praising this wonderful Victorian Delight in Ooty. The location, the mansion itself and service are all Best of the Best. When we arrived, a typical Victorian mansion greeted us with its long driveway which gave way to a beautiful lawn with geese and a 1950’s ‘Hillman’ on the porch. It really did feel like we were back... More

Beautiful villa with an old world charm. Spacious n clean rooms. The cottages are quite modern but the villa takes you to the old days of the British. Helpful and friendly staff. The food was mediocre. The breakfast which is included in the package was quite disappointing with very limited spread. Overall its a nice place to spend a short... More
