“Blue Bird hotel stay at June 09 - 11”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Our Hotel stay at Blue Bird was good and hotel is near to charring cross and botanical garden areas.Rooms are good and we got a descent room. Cleanliness needs to be improved and room service also needs some more attention.

Hi

I had booked 3 rooms (Queen Deluxe) from 10th May till 13 May.
while one of the rooms got a wall view (Room 205) Other Rooms (203 and 204) for a nice view.

Room 205 is just above from where the liqour is carried so avoid that room. The room has persistent Alchocol Smell which increases as evening sets. So x05 room has this problems.

Apart from the above small problem our stay was excellent. +10 for Manager. He is very good and supportive. In face he moved hi car out one evening where there was a problem with parking. Rooms are nice. Towels are changed and rooms are cleaned (on request) on daily basis. The room is quite cozy in cold climate of ooty. The room is not located near Charing Cross as indicated. Its is perhaps 1.5 KMS from Charring Cross on Ooty Conoor road. So travelling to hotels in ooty town is a littletougth but then you can take your vehicle or hire ann Auto Which charge around 40 to 60 bucks.

Now to the Hotel Review. We had broken a centre table glass during our stay. There were two main reasons one actually put one bag on it which was heavy but then glasses are supposed to handle that and my guess was that the glass was a little brittle to not with stand it.

ANOTHER important thing is my mom forget 7400 Rs in the Hotel room when we checked out. We did not know about it till i got a call from Manager stating that they have found money in our rooms and needed a proof/identifications of what and where was money left. We figure out teh next day that my mom had forgotten the money. The manager transferred 6000 Rs to my Bank account within 2 days which was quite good experience. 500 Rs was deducted for teh broken glass (which they did not charge during the checkout) while the remaining money was given to the person who returned the money

SO OVER ALL GREAT EXPERIENCE.
Positives - Good Service (also on those peak season)
Clean Rooms
Very Hot Water (7 to 8 PM) and (6 to 10 AM)
Towel, Soap etc in rooms
Good parking Space

Negatives - Some rooms have no view i.e. Wall View about 4 ft opp. (don't prefer 205 and above series and specially X05 series of rooms due to alcohol problems)
No Lift
It will be great if the boys can [pro actively carry luggage and carry all the the luggage

Recommended - DEFINITELY YES

Its a good hotel to stay.I visited on 22 feb-12, for 4 nights.Enjoyed to stay at this hotel.Bathrooms are clean.Staff is very co-operative.Dont know about food as I am vegetarian so i went to other hotel for my food.But if you are a non-vegetarian its a very good hotel to have a stay.Take a room at 3rd floor kings deluxe room, so that you can have a excellent view through your room.All staff very helpfull to guide about sight seeing and also arranging any vehicles if you need on time.I think there should be heater in the room which is not present & also cable channels should be clear if you want to do some timepass in room after coming from sight seeing.Mr. Varghese,Mr.Rajesh & Mr. Anand all are very helpfull & generous to help you at any time you require them.

Room Tip: Choose room on 3rd floor Kings Deluxe room to have a good view from your room.

We had been to this hotel stayed with a family. it was a nice place and good staff & services. they helped us with a local sight seeing places, the food was good in-fact it was as per our choice the kitchen people made. kind of home away from home, though it is a small hotel at the end of the day the stay was comfortable. i have already recommended couple of my friends to stay at this place. The tariff was reasonably fine it is worth stay at this place. I strongly recommend.

Room Tip: The suite room / larger room is very nice.

We stayed on 21/22 Jan 2012, booked 2 rooms. We were 2 couples and 2 infants. Following is our experience
1. bedsheets were dirty, when asked to replace, we were told that it will be charged extra,
2. we asked to boil milk for our child and they said it will be charged extra later on they refused to do it at all. We had to go out of hotel and ask local shops and they were more than happy to help for a 6 months old child.
3. Beds were smaller than even a queen size bed, painful.
4. food was so bad, we never ordered again. Also we asked to not put chillies but food was really spicy so we had to throw it away. Moreover they said they dont have tissue papers. Rooms were not even having water to drink, we were forced to buy water from the management.
5. they did not transfer our luggage properly. They transferred 50% of our luggage and went away, we had to carry the remaining stuff ourselves.
6. Hotel is very small, view is bad coz it is adjacent to some very bad looking buildings and when you open window, you see a wall1 meter apart and nothing else.
7. Except the manager and the gatekeeper, everyone was very rude (specially the guy with specs who was handling most of the work). We were frustrated and told him we wont visit again. he replied "no problem" and went away.
8. They tried to charge us more than the bill amount, when i asked, the receptionist said that either i pay him exact cash or he will not return the remaining money.

I didn't want to say all this on tripadvisor and wanted to directly give feedback to hotel but they were really bad and not ready to take any feedback. Instead they were showing that they are already too good.
There are many more things that happened, but lets leave it here. As a whole, i don't recommend it at all, there are a lot better hotels available for same or lesser rent.

Room Tip: Dont choose room in this hotel
