We enjoyed our stay at Darshan Hotel Ooty. Their mini suites are very comfortable and gives a nice view of lake and hills.Room service was excellent. Mini suites facing the lake on the 2nd floor are good.It is difficult for older people to go up and down by stairs on upper floors.

We stayed for 2 nights in a Super-deluxe room. Rooms in Darshan are ultra clean and nicely maintained. Bath room is spacious and clean. Location at the best overlooking the ooty lake. However out makes Darshan stand apart is the food. If you are a vegie, not needed to experiment anywhere else. Memorable trip.

First time ever visiting a hill station and staying in Darshan Hotel was superb. The staff, the room, the food, everything was so very homely. I plan to visit Ooty again and will definitely stay in Darshan Hotel AGAIN :)

We are very happy and really enjoyed in Hotel Darshan, Ooty. But while check out, they charged Rs.350/- for extra bed and this is not mentioned in the Voucher. They also told me to ask cleartrip about this.
