Hotel Darshan it just opposite of ooty lake. Nice view rooms but an average property and there is no other hotels. Totally you have depend on the Hotel as it is 1.5 Kms from the Ooty Railway Station and the Main Junction and it is a north Indian hotel and you will find most the guest are north Indians only.

Our overall experience was decent one at Darshan hotel and received good hospitality from Mr. Rathore and his team. Its reachable within 10 mins either from station or bus stand. Good home made like veg food added the flavor. The view from hotel is good and the all local tourist attraction is nearby to hotel. Another plus was that hotel... More

Good Things: 1. Location and View 2. Helping Staff 3. Good Veg Hotel 4. Security Things which need improvement: 1. Bed 2. Cleanliness 3. Cost of Food For the money we have paid, the rooms can be maintained better. The hotel is in excellent location. And the view of Boat House from the hotel is awesome.

I went there for dinner only. Really a pathetic experience. Most expensive veg food I had in ooty with least quantity. Even they asked to pay 2.5% extra of the bill while paying though credit card. Worst service ever, they were not even providing the spoons timely leave about food.

The hotel is located in a beautiful spot facing the Ooty Lake. The staff were nice. However the cleanliness wasn't much too our expectation. The pipes in the toilets were leaking, the bath water didn't clear away, the room was unclean, broken tiles, insects and definitely requires work done.

They are a bunch of extremely unprofessional and untrained people in this hotel. The rooms have a horrible... More

Nice hotel on a great location. Staffs are friendly and helpful and the GM Mr. Rathour is wonderful to speak with. Price of the foods are very costly which is expected in Ooty. I would recommend this hotel.
