Its a building from 1850s. Posibally some "Gora Saheb" must be residing here then. The place is maintained well, its neat and clean. The staff is friendly and makes sure that the stay is comfortable.It has a flavor of proper home cooked meal so the food is simple yet tasty. The place has three rooms in the main building and 3 outside cottages. We stayed in one of the rooms (room name: "westburry") and they were equally comfortable. The room was big and the bathroom was even bigger :-). To my liking It was quite clean and kempt. The rooms and common area have fire places which can be lit up up on request. They even have a nice little library sorts where you can borrow books from. This place has its own campus with swings and sitting places in the garden. One of the days in your trip may be you can laze around the property, read books and sit next to the fire place. To sum up its a pretty good place to spend your time in ooty.
