Hill country is definitely a good option for people who don't mind spending a little bit more for a comfortable stay in ooty. I personally felt the location is ideal on account of the fact that it's far away from the hustle and bustle of the main ooty town and at the same time not very far (lovedale is just about 4kms from charring cross). The hotel offers very good rooms and their servicevis prompt. I will not say the view from the hotel is spectacular because I've seen a lot of other places which offer a better view. However it's definitely decent. The food served is also good. So overall it's a good option. Not the best, but considering all the aspects it's amongst the best.
