Right from the bookings/ enquiries till the very end of our trip this was trip to remember:
Ms. Ambareen, was always patiently answering to all our innumerable questions also gave us the best rates.
Once we reached Ooty Ms. Geetha and Mr. Sarnish took over the full responsibilites to make our stay a memorable one. We were a party of two families of couple and a 5 yr old each. We were aptly suggested to book the Isis and Flora suites as they have a connected sitting room and the kids made most of it running day in and day out. The property is meticulously maintained and the garden is delightful as well. Also, there were regular visits by the pony keeper much to the delight of the kids.
The food was an epicurean affair. The breakfast spread was humongous with bread butter/ aloo paratha/ puri sabzi, followed by omlettes/ poaches/ scrambles, sausages, cornflakes, curd/ lassi, juices and tea/ coffee. I had to rest after the breakfast!
One day we had a barbque arranged and the Kebabs were heavenly. The yalso got us a lovely fruity Red Wine. The next day when we requested for something special, Mr. Sarnish talked to the cheff and arranged an awesum Beef Steak for us!
The rooms are huge, with meticulous toilets and sit outs.
This is a supperb property retaining the old age charm - do not miss on the piano, clocks, radio of the bygone era in the main bungalow and sip to your glass by the fireplace!
