Excellent location facing OOTY lake, room was comfortable and clean, service had personal touch. Location is its best advantage. Spacious parking is great help. Restaurant serves only VEG dishes and lack of lift are drawbacks.

We stayed here only for one night, it was an ok experience. The rooms have a peculiar smell and are just average. We didn't try the food so no comments on that. The best part is its location its near the lake n hence we managed to reach the boating on time without any queues. Ok for one night.

The hotel is a good budget hotel,room service is okay,food doesn't have much variety.TV channels don't have much Hindi or English channels.The hotel doesn't have a lift so it could be a bit hard on senior citizens.The only USP the hotel has is the view of the ooty lake from the balcony. Staff is nice and friendly.

The hotel was excellent. We received warm welcome in the reception when we reached there. They were always smiling and friendly. Rooms were kept very clean including the washrooms. Room boys, restaurant staff and other staff were very polite. The view of the lake and hills from the room balcony is awesome. We enjoyed all the four days we stayed... More
