I stayed at Hotel Darshan from 22nd Jan - 25th Jan with my wife. I would have given 4 stars but the one extra star is for Mr. Balraaj (pardon me incase I have spelt it wrong). To start with, the hotel has got a very good location, facing the Ooty Lake. There would not be a moment when you... More

I stayed in this hotel with my family three nights (Dec 20 to 23 Morning). Behaviors of staffs are very good and punctual. Rooms services are okay, but rates are little high. Only vegetable meals available, room rents are reasonable. No lift to go to up stairs. Hot water tanks are not cleaning well, so sometimes hot water coming very... More

We booked this hotel only because everything else was fully booked out during the Christmas break. The hotel is very poorly maintained - the rooms and the overall area stink badly due to negligence and poor maintenance. There are NO LIFTS and the climb to fourth and fifth floors is pretty steep even for healthy individuals. The structure of the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in December. Was pleasantly surprised with the room conditions. They have a big open area and an accessible terrace. Room service was good and the hotel staff was very courteous The location is nice with the boat lake about 1 km walk. Overall nice stay.

I was in Ooty on 11-13 Dec 14. We found the hotel a beautiful property, nicely located exposing a serene view of the lake. In fact I found this hotel better that hotel lake view in term of ambiance. The staff is good, and mostly speak hindi, which was an added advantage for us. I will recommend this place for... More

Rooms are dim light suitable for honey moon. Though I was with family with two kids, it was quite pleasurable. The hotel is on a hill that directly is overlooking the lake. Just 5 mins walk. We are non-vegetarian but did not regret at all the super vegetarian food from the restaurant of this hotel. The khulchas for breakfast and... More
