We stayed here for a night after taking the toy train to Ooty. It's a bit like a Scottish hunting lodge in the middle of India, with wood panelling and log fires in the rooms. It is lost in time, and you feel you are in a timewarp back to the 1930s. Our Heritage Suite room was huge, you almost... More

We stayed at Glyngarth Villas for a week. Ooty is beautiful and there were lots of things to do. The accommodation was definitely heritage - the place was ok but would have been super with some time spent rejuvenating it and with some home comforts like a fire in the lounge each evening. The beds were lovely with clean sheets... More

If Fern Hills Palace reminded me about the gone away royal glory, Glyngarth villa took me to the mountain of serenity. Who doesn't love the peace and silence? I love it and I enjoyed it at this place - that too on a Christmas Day. That's an awesome blend, correct? Have to appreciate the team for delivering such a wonderful... More

Glyngarth villa is definitely a place worth staying in Ooty! I took a stay in both the rooms available at the time, and both of them were amazing, both with different ambiances and equally comfortable. As for the entertainment, in the evenings,the traditional tribes of Ooty were invited to entertaine everyone with their traditional dances near a bonfire!The breakfast was... More

Our experience at Glygarth was more than pleasant. From the starting, when I called up Sahid for booking request to the point of checking in and at last while checking out everything was so smooth and perfect. The rooms are beautiful with wooden floors and the 18th century fire place. The hotel is actually a 160 year old villa and... More
