I love old buildings. Places that give you a peep in the era gone by are what make any trip memorable.
Fernhills has a beautiful property. A palace surrounded by acres of greenery. We went for long walks in the surrounding forests, played with some very shy sheeps and enjoyed being with nature.
This is a very silent place. One can hear a pin drop. Perhaps due to its location this property doesn't have too many tourists and hence its quiet. Very few places can boast of this, so if you really want peace and quiet, this is the place. Not the place to take your kids to, because they won't have enough distractions. It is best for couples or families or people seeking solitude and peace.
Despite being an old building, it is well maintained. The staff is very polite and well behaved. The food was okay and room service was good. My only issue was that there were no actual fireplaces. But that's a minor point against the place.
Ooty is a good walk from Fernhills. Its best to walk down to the city and enjoy the journey. Better than taking a taxi.
Overall, I would love to go there again.
