“Good room (Super Deluxe). Horrible Restaurant & Complimentary Breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2010

I stayed with family at Ooty Gate on April 1,2,3 / 2010. The super deluxe rooms booked were good. House keeping was excellent and the staff was courteous.



The only horrible experience we had was with the complimentary break fast provided. We waited almost an hour for a plate of Idly and we were not given any other choice than Dosa or Idly. Once the food arrived it was cold and we need to raise our voice to heat it up and bring again. The restaurent staff were found to be tensed and not responding properly.

Though we stayed 3 days. we skipped the complimentary breakfast for the next 2 days from this hotel.

Advice not to try Tea or coffee from the restaurent or room service. It will be neither tea/ cofee nor milk nor water. Just step out in front of the hotel a small tea shop is there which provide a better stuff.



General comment : Have stay only in Super deluxe and above rooms and have food & beverages outside only.

as the name suggests it used to be the Gate to Ooty.
This is the hotel which lives by its word and is worth every penny that it charges.. Very courteous staff, very nice rooms and very economical even in peak season. Excellent hotel.
The view from the hotel room is excellent. The bath rooms are clean. The hotel itself seems to be in a very quiet place inspite of being just a few minutes drive away from the city centre. Nice experience. Always recommended.

I was on a holiday with my spouse at Ooty. Since we planned our entire holiday through internet, we booked ourselves at Hotel Ooty Gate. The location is good & it is on the way to Mettupalayam. The hotel is about 3-4 kilometres away from Ooty bus stand. The rooms are however not very clean, especially the bathrooms are shabby. The restaurant is OK & you get a good variety of food. Ooty as a place is absolutely smashing & I would like to go there again & again. The climate is fantastic & a great break away from day to day chaos of big city like New Delhi or Mumbai.

I’d not suggest any traveller to keep this hotel as a standby & look for some other hotels to begin with.

They say it is a 2-Star hotel..well, it never looked like. Let me descirbe and also summerise things quickly:

BEST:
Spacious rooms
Well ventilated rooms
Good outside view from rooms (Which I loved).

WORST:
Food quality was very very bad
Waited for dinner for hours after ordering (more than 1hr 30min)
Furniture was very very old

Because of lunch/dinner issues, I am giving a low rating to this hotel.

  • Liked — Spacious rooms and awesome outside view
  • Disliked — Food and service

the double bedrrom was cool
best getaway sort of thing for couples to stay in
about the things people usually look for while booking a hotel..and the food is affortable
1.room service: was on daily basis
2.food: came in within few minutes after the order was made over telephone( telephone service in the room itself within reach from ur bed)
3.hot water, clean toilet, bathroom, wash basin
4.Tv with channels of all languages
5.dressing table
6. chairs n tea-table or watevr u call it..
7.of the four walls in the room..one was covered with curtain..when i undid the curtains..it was full glass from top to bottom..sort of window
8.check-in: was not a trouble..we reached early in the morning but the receptionist didnot show any sign of sigh n checked us in.
9. similarly check out didnot take much time and we din have to by ourselves for auto..their was this guard who got one for us..
10. distance from bus: well..i dont know in km..but it costed 20 rupees..not far
11.sight seeing places are not far away from the hotel.
12.last but the important thing u look..that is the cost per day..it is 1200-1400 rupees for the room we stayed..double bedroom..

im not describing my experience with my husband here..
wat is important is hotel
in a nutshell i can say it is one of the best hotel in ooty with all the necessary things one looks for.

i have my plans to go to ooty again with my husband n i would definitely go to the same hotel..
