Booked the hotel online after finding good reviews on trip advisor and must say that the hotel deserves all the good ratings.
We were three (me, my wife and son) and had driven down from Bangalore. We reached around 3 PM and were pleased to find the hotel a little away from the city of Ooty at a quiet and a calm place. The hotel's entry is impressive and there is ample parking available. The staff was quite welcoming and the check-in was a breeze. We were escorted to the room, which is very spacious and well done up. The rooms are comfortable and offered a good view.
We had breakfast and dinner for two days at the hotel and food is also good. I would rate it better than average. Since the first day occupancy was low, so in breakfast on first day and dinner on both the days, there was a fixed menu, which had enough variety. Portions are good and overall had satisfying meals.
The only areas I could think the hotel needs improvement is in the signal quality of cable TV and more channels for people coming from other parts of India other than south. They need to provide door bells for the rooms and also look at improving signal for airtel. In the rooms, there is hardly any signal for airtel. Vodafone , idea and aircel seem to work fine.
The hotel is slightly expensive, but worth the money.
