“Poor serviced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We booked 5 delex rooms for 2 days we reached 5.30pm room was not ready we waited 1hr they give us single cottage with 3 bed rooms.One bed room was too small so one family with 2 kids cannot stay there and not enough space for additional bed also they charging equally for all rooms. When we shifted all laguages we nticed some very bad smell is coming from kitchen and we saw the drainage pipe was broken we called the manager and requested to shift us to another place but initially he talled no other cottage is avilable then we talled we are going to another place and to cancell ourbooking.That time shifted us to another cottage which was un occuppied, better but bath rooms poorly maitaned and cleaned .Food was avarage.we all were very disappointed with their services.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

It’s a beautiful place for peaceful stay. It is 6 or more km away from main ooty market so you need to have your own car/taxi to roam around. All cottages are facing east and you will see awesome sunrise from your room. Outside of cottage, you will get a beautiful view of some vegetable farms in a valley. Very close to marlimund lake which is not a known visiting place. All cottages are very beautiful and specious.

The staff was kind, helpful but little slow. The man we contacted on phone 'Kartik' was not there at the location.

There is lot to improve. Services are POOR. They were not able to provide an extra blanket on time. There should be extra blankets/ blowers in rooms. We used their bicycles (from activities section) which were in very bad condition. The Restaurant is useless - cant expect even sandwiches all the time. Morning breakfast was just for the sake of providing something. Not at all presentable as it should be.

You will not get any other restaurants nearby so for eating out you will need to go to 6-7 km. Which is a bad thing if you stay here.

But on the other hand you will get very peaceful stay with no disturbances from main ooty with a mesmerizing morning if you like to get up early.

Away from the main town, and very C A L M! Around 6 kms from the town of Ooty is this very beautiful Marlimund lake. Sabol Holiday Resorts is located very close to the lake. There are sign boards leading to the resort, but not very clear ; hence advisable to confirm with the localites at every junction. The location is the prime reason you would love the resort.

The cottages have a small hall, a tiny kitchen, and an averagely spacious bedroom, moderately furnished and clean, overlooking the valleys. The very scenic views from the resort need a special mention!
Don't miss the misty mornings with a cup of steaming coffee, on the lawns, outside the cottage! It is pleasant outside rooms the whole day, with varieties of species of birds coming to greet you all the time. The views, the chirping of birds, the garden, a cup of coffee, you, and calmness (city dwellers, you ask more?)!
The manager, Mr.Senthil, with a bunch of very helpful staff, is always there to help you out with the sight seeing plans, and 'what to shop where, in Ooty'.

The food was very very average! The breakfasts were horrible, but the lunch was a lot better. Cleanliness could improve. There are no room heaters (which is inevitable, as the place gets really chilly at night). The place also needs proper sign boards from the town.

Pros:
Very tranquil location
Scenic views
Extremely helpful staff
The bird visitors

Cons:
Average food
No room heaters
No clear sign boards from the town

Room Tip: Cottages on the 2nd level offer a good view, while keeping you away from the main office (that means...

Check in was to be at 12 noon, we reached at 5pm, the room was not ready. They offered us another room to relax in. We stepped out for a bit, and were back in 1.5hrs, still the room was not ready. The room was superficially cleaned and linens changed in 10 mins post a checkout and offered to us.
Food is not good at all, breakfast is just bearable. Service is where the whole place goes for a toss. The view is great and uninterrupted of the terrace farms.

Dont worry that it is quite far the main ooty, the staff and manager there will make feel comfortable with all the pick-up-drops. It is very small resort but it has a beautifull location , u will really feel the ooty fresh air there.
Staffs are the at their best.
Rooms are excelent.
We fixed the sight seeing with their driver and vehicle, the cost is also at its best.

I had stayed in this hotel in the month of June'12. My stay was awesome and the hospitality and services is excellent. the staffs are very friendly and polite. the hotel location is very nice. i will suggest to my friends about this hotel.

We loved every bit of our trip at Sabol. It was so peaceful and beautiful. Location,cleanliness, food, customer service, interiors - Excellent......... The place speaks for itself, wonderful Hotel. Service is class to serve the best. It was an amazing hotel and a beautiful location and with the view of mountain from the room. It was awesome.

Ignore the bad reviews given about the hotel here.
Really a excellent place to stay.
If we ever come back to ooty, I wouldn't even look at any other places, this will be the one which is best in ooty.

Room Tip: Choose Deluxe Cottage
