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.
