“Change in management - hope for better things to come”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2010

I travelled in the month of May, 2010 with my wife for a weekend. I have been visiting this hotel for nearly three years now. Things have changed to the better after there is a change in management. A whole new group has taken over the hotel and is working really hard to ensure the best possible comforts for guests. The Manager especially has to be appreciated, he hangs around the hotel all the time with a warm smile on his face and inviting feedback for betterment.

The tarriff certainly has gone up now but, the service too seems to have notched up now. Same with cleanliness too. The best part of the Nalapad is that is located at a truly awesome place in Ooty, it has some of the most prestine and scenic views of Ooty.

The Lake and the Bus Station is 2~3 minutes and the shopping jaunt is a 5 minute drive from the hotel, respectively.

On the whole the hotel is economical, clubbed with a beautiful view - is a place to be in Ooty.

First of all the Hotel is out of the city. secondly the Manager at the reception is a pig like man who never cares for anybody. Hotel rooms are horrible which stinks, room service is zero pe zero. food prices are sky rackets, if you order coffee for breakfast you will get it for afternoon lunch. no proper tv, no soap, no ptoothpaste. to my shock they wont clean the balnkets and bedsheets after the use by the customer, they will give the used one to you which i saw in my own eyes, in which case the balnkets stinck like hell with with stain marks everywhers. they charge high amount mentioning rooms are not available.. I suggest there is no value for your money. Even if you stay on footpaths bettter do not stay in this hotel.

I would not say its the best hotel to stay,we ended up staying there as we couldnt get rooms any where else.But definitely not a bad choice.Rooms start from 2000 n upwards.If you are looking to stay at the heart of ooty,then this suits the bill

Well the first time I went in 2007 they simply pampered us. But when I went the second time it wasnt so great. Food was great both the times but the service was deteriorated. There was no proper response for any requests and food took almost one hour after ordering. May be avoidable hotel

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2009

We visited Nalapad this May 2009. We had booked 2 economy rooms over phone a fortnight back, but after arrival they informed that the economy rooms were full so we had to occupy the comfort rooms. The view from the room balcony is simply superb which is the only added advantage to this hotel.. When it comes to cleanliness its neither gud nor bad . The bedspread and the sheets were not so clean, i guess they are very old..Bathroom was very neat and tidy.
The worst part of the hotel is its room service, the management really has to do something about it else they will loose their customers.They took more than 1 and half an hour to supply just 2 cups of tea along with 2 plates of idly(I guess they travek down the hill to buy the stuff from another hotel, but the food is not all that bad.
The tarrif is very economical when compared with the other hotels in ooty, so if you are looking forward for a economy trip(cost cutting mode) then opt for this place but order ur food well in advance or remind the room service guys often.
