“Friendly staff in nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Very helpful and flexible staff. Nice rooms (and wooden floors) and hot water. Comfortable beds and extra blankets for cold nights in Ooty. The owner George is always there if you need something. Good food can be provided at low cost to your room, although there is no classic restaurant. Quiet surroundings and brillant views into the mountains.

We selected this property based on Tripadvisor reviews. We stayed for 4 Nights and the stay was comfortable in the two bedroom/Living room option we took. Though the property is like Service Apartment, it was homely and the food was like home food since everything is prepared fresh. Just that we need to order food little in advance as the property does not have any restaurant. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Both my children gave the rating of 8 out of 10 which I thought was great. Its also very much in the city hence commute was also comfortable.

It seems cottage was specially designed for family accomodation having two bedroom with common living/dining hall. Well maintained and convinient location near botanical garden having ease access to city center were prime highlights. I definately recommend this stay for others. Good food was served on prior order and I hope management will come up with attached restaurant in near future.

We selected this accommodation based on the reviews in tripadvisor and also because we were looking for a neat and clean, with basic amenities, and budget accommodation for a family of 8 adults and 1 child. I am happy to say that I wasn't disappointed at all. The place is very well maintained. It is a new facility and is very close to the main Charring Cross. It is at walkable distance from the Botanical Garden. Also has a doctor/hospital in close proximity to it.

We got delayed in checking in on the first day and we called up the resort and asked them to arrange dinner for all of us. We reached only at about 9:30 pm and the dinner was served at 9:45 pm. I would like to thank the staff as everything around closes by 8-9 pm or so, but they kept the food ready for us and indeed it couldn't have been tastier. we wee to catch the toy train the next day at 9 am and our cab driver didn't turn up. The hotel staff immediately helped in arranging auto rickshaws for us and we reached the station well in time to take the train. Once again, i appreciate the help. As soon as we reached, we were handed a few pages on Things to do and go around in Ooty. It really helped us.

The food served is simple, tasty and homelike. Tea was served whenever we requested for. Dinner and Lunch were with prior information. Breakfast was basic and delicious. This is with respect to Vegetarians. We were looking for 3 bed rooms and we were offered the Ruby cottage on the 1st floor. It not only has 3 rooms, but also has a common hall with dining and sofa and a common wash basin. This made our stay even better. It was like we were almost at home!! We stayed there for 3 nights and had a really good experience. The staff is very nice and polite. A special thanks to Mr. George for having made our stay so wonderful. The hotel also has a nice view of the hills and you needn't go anywhere to see the sunrise.

So, if you are with family (or a group of friends) and looking for a good budget accommodation, this is the place for you. I am sure, you will not be disappointed!! :) :)

Room Tip: Choose a cottage if you are looking for 2/3 bedrooms. For a single room for 2 adults, go for 201 or...

We had our accommodation booked at another location in Ooty a week ahead of our trip. However, when we checked in, we did not find it good enough for our family's needs. I logged on to tripadvisor.in and identified Woodberry Resorts, based on the traveller ratings it had and also the proximity to the place we had accommodation reserved weeks ago.

Awesome service. I contacted the resort with an enquiry and said I would call back after I got the info on the tariff. They told me when i called the first time that they have a two-bedded room for our family of four. Just what I was looking for.

Five minutes later I had a call from them asking about our current location in Ooty and the vehicle number of our car and that a person from their side would meet us soon. Just as we left our first halt in Ooty, a guy on a scooter met us on the road and introduced himself and guided us to Woodberry Resorts.

On arrival, we were thrilled to find such warm, courteous, helpful and hospitable staff at Woodberry Resorts and relaxed completely. But for Woodberry Resorts, I cannot imagine how the rest of the trip would have been after the initial disappointment.

They have a kitchen and readily served us coffee, tea, Horlicks.

Room Tip: They only have a kitchen, yet a great experience in B&B with comfort and luxury.

I chose this hotel through tripadvisor based on the reviews.. Hotel manager george is a very kind person to attend all the needs of every person. He also gives lot of to do suggestions in ooty.. He & alex made my stay memorable.. Look for them if u need any kind of help.

The hotel is easy to reach and very close to botanical garden.. If u got a binocular u cud see howz it inside the garden from second floor balcony or from terace..but oly few areas are visible. So commuting is very easy. As it is very close to the city, shopping is also very near and you can visit other areas and come back to hotel soon.. Since it is a new hotel they dont have card machine and you got to pay through cash. But in future they are gonna bring that option itseems...

About cleanliness of hotel room, no complaints be it the bedroom or toilet. The bed system is two single beded and if you are going as a couple it will be slightly inconvienince. So plan accordingly. I have also told abt this to hotel manager Mr.george he said abt new rooms construction going on where they are making single double bed. This hotel is a newly constructed hotel and i chose this for my honeymoon...and i told the same to Mr.george and he made a surprise for me when i reached there, you knw what he decorated my bed nicely and i was very happy to see that....

Safety is nothing to worry abt.you will be very safe..when staying try to get the top floor as the view will be good.. Moreover the food is something you got to try there.. Without the proper construction of kitchen they made all very good.. Idly with eggcurry for morning breakfast is very nice option.. If you need anything else they will try to prepare it for you..

The hotel is well stuffed with blankets and i liked the blanket very much and purchased a similar one before leaving ooty.. Will upload some snaps of the hotel room and decoration later...Overall my exp with staff and my stay is very good. Will recomend this as the price is also affordable...
