“superb tour ....... really loved the place........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2011

We had been planning for our company tour since long and we could not decide upon which hotel to select, then one of my friend suggested about British Cliff Club Resort , Ooty..... I just got in contact with the officials there and we were quoted the best possible rate and the most economical rate.......

On reaching the hotel, we were very much happy as the location of the hotel is superb..... you can see the full of Ooty town from there and the lawn of the hotel is quite big..... and the food, the taste is still in my tongue... such homely type of atmosphere....

A Campfire with music was arranged for us in the evening- that was the most enjoyable part of our journey.... we really celebrated and danced till our legs started paining.....

In short... it was a really memorable group tour for us..... and one of my friend and colleague is planning his Honeymoon trip to the same place after a month . ....
It is a quite place and you get a nostalgia type of feeling when staying there....

If you are looking for a place where you want to enjoy every moment of your stay i would really recommend British Cliff Club Resort ......

When we reached Ooty I was disappointed to see that the place was nothing like one would imagine a hill station to be. It was pretty chaotic. I wanted a place that is a bit calm and is at a height. We chanced upon this place. And this was perfect. The room rent was reasonable at INR1800 for a 4 bed-room. It had all the basic stuff like geyser, room service and all that. The major reason why we took this place was because this place offers the facility to have a bonfire at night. Most of the hotels in Ooty either do not offer this or charge exorbitant amounts for this. We were charged only INR200. It is a on top of a hill and the view from there is very beautiful. The room was huge.

The only two things that I found were not so good with this place are:
1. The lighting was very dim(one might like it though).
2. Since it is on top of a hill its a bit difficult to walk and reach there.

British cliff club is a place which reminds us of the period that used to be in the ancient times that is, when britishers used to be in India. It is a lovely place and it was a great experience to stay in a place like this. From this resort if we have a look we can have a great view of Ooty, that is not available from any place in ooty, it is a beautiful place and enjoyed my stay there.And i would recommend anyone to go there.

After an hour and a half trying to find the property in Ooty and the manager and his staff saying they could not provide directions and pretending we had the wrong number we finally arrived via a single track dirt road
first impressions were promising - warm welcome , beautiful views over the town well tended front terrace and then the nightmare began
The room - !! massive with a television 2 arm chairs desk bed - anteroom and shower room BUT - you could not use the television as all the electrics in the room were faulty and sparked continually , the mattress was harder than the floor and the chairs still had their plastic covering on - actually this turned out to be a blessing
the bedroom windows were painted over presumably to afford some privacy as they were overlooked by anyone, i.e everyone ! walking past the front of the hotel - this made the room dark and when the light was on did not stop anyone looking in - the bed was directly under the windows - the curtains were see through.

At this stage i had accepted the inevitable and went into town when i came back and got into bed what became clear was that the room was full of live mosquitos and a variety of other buzzing bugs and the wall that i thought had bee rough plastered was actually covered with numerous dead animal splodges - the ceiling was gaping in places and black with mildew, the shower room tiles grouting were black with ??? the toilet leaked constantly, there was no hot water indeed very little water at all - presumably because it was all leaking from the toilet - the anteroom ledges and mirror were thick with dead flies - the rug was stained the floor sticky

Then to make matters even worse the room next to mine had been let to a bachelor group who were served their dinner outside my room until 230 in the morning

the grounds were nominally attractive with a games area including volley ball net and rose bushes - until you walked on the grass and realized it was a rubbish tip for old bones and general debris

now you might think this is me being a princess and this being India all i will say is that my driver was horrified by this room and insisted on staying on the property as he was concerned about me

the positive point - they made me a nice pot of tea for breakfast
