I would like to say my experience staying at Darshan was pleasant, the staff is great and helpful. Room service was quick and excellent veg restaurant.

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.

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.
