“Good Hotel.. Nice View..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

This Hotel is very good.. Value for money.. Nice Clean Rooms... from the balcony you get excellent view of lake.. They have a swing in the balcony from where you can enjoy lake view and your pleasant mornings..Not far from the city also so easily accessible..
We had north Indian food in the hotel and it was finger licking good.. Room Service is also pretty quick..
Overall my stay at this hotel was good.. Would surely come back to this place...
Thanks Hotel Darshan Team..

Room Tip: Super Deluxe room with good lake view.

The rooms was not as high as the cost was. No compliment food for breakfast for Highest paid room of the hotel. Room service was not satisfactory, you order or ask anything in room that thing will be delivered when u'll call 2-4 times.
Food in the restaurant was very average and breakfast was below average.
No room heater service in the month of end-december. It was very cold last year since it was raining. They asked me to pay extra for room heater service ( in highest accommodation room).

I would not like to visit again !!!

Room Tip: Dont visit this hotel. Good part - outside view from the window

Been to this hotel in the month of sept 11.. I had made a thorough research on the net before booking this hotel room and I am happy that I did... The 2 rooms I booked were minisuites, located on the 2nd floor with perfect view of the ooty lake, right in front of you. They have a swing in the bacony where we can peacefully sit down and watch the lake with a cup of hot coffee in hand :).....
The rooms were pretty decent for the price they charged and my kids enjoyed playing in the tub the most, good thing is, u get hot water flowing through it, 24 hours a day.....
what else, good food( Veg only), good stay and good people, just perfect a stay...
They arrange for the sight seeing packages and others at the desk...

overall a good stay at ooty and i will never think of any other hotel whenever I go there again.....

Room Tip: Choose rooms in 2nd or third floors to get a good view of the lake, the flipside is, u have to clim...

We stayed in this hotel for 3 days starting from 26th of January 2012. We opted for a super deluxe room and it was clean, spacious and it worth for the money. Hot water was available 24 hours and the room service was good. Staffs were very cordial and helpful and I would like to specifically mention the likes of Mr.Raja, Mr.David, Mr.Mubarak and Mr.Kannan. The food was also good (they serve only vegetarian), but I would like them to make the ambience more better by replacing the old charis and tables. If I visit ootty again, I wold like to stay in this hotel again.
