“Nice Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

It was a nice resort, we stayed 2 days here from 2nd july 2014 to 4th july 2014, its a nice place for honeymooner's and for those looking some romantic retreat, and also highly recommended for families.
However on the downside, the tarrif is steep for a resort like this, also the basic aminity like fireplace which is required almost 10 months a year if you dont have a heater, is available on chargeable basis and that too very steep at about 150/- an hour, which didnt go well with us and may either not go well with most of the guests,restaurant food is average and service is not at all professional

It was our family trip to Ooty and I think it is the best place to stay there. everything in the hotel was near perfect, be it rooms, view from the room and hotel landscape was awesome.
Serivce was a issue in the hotel and food quality was average too.

We booked 2 cottages during June 2014 for 3 days. This hotel is located near the Ooty lake and close to city center which makes your movement quite comfortable. we saw many hotels during our trip of Ooty and i think it is one of the best place to stay in Ooty. We booked the Deluxe cottages. The cottages are nice and clean but the garden in front of it is not so exciting. We found that garden near other expensive cottages are more well maintained with flowers and chairs. The restaurant is also well maintained and you can have your meal there. We heard that there are not so good places to eat in Ooty so we mostly stuck to the Hotel restaurant for dinner. The breakfast was not complimentary with Deluxe cottages which was disappointing to us. It is also pretty expensive so we used to do breakfast outside.

My suggestion to the hotel manager would be to provide equal services for all kind of cottages. The place is great to stay and enjoy your vacations but small issues like this do disappoints travelers.

Room Tip: Check properly for details before booking.

I had my greatest time of life, my honeymoon here in the hotel. The staying, location, food, stuff, ambience all are just perfect. It is not within the city but by the city which gives you the best feelings. Both lake and hills are visible from room which makes your morning too refreshing.

Room Tip: Choose the cottages for staying....

Stayed here probably 18 months back. VFM hotel. Cleanliness could be improved. Extra charge for room heaters. Breakfast was ok not great. Bed was not that comfortable. Pricing wise i recommend provided its max 2 night stay.

Room Tip: You have two views to book. One is Lake view and one is mountain view. Go for the one you prefer

I strongly recommend you to stay away from this Hotel due to following experience:

1) First room I got, did not had any power plug working (17A).. Ever time I have to charge my mobile, I have to turn off the TV.
2) It’s way far & you can’t find anything around the hotel.. I struggled to get biscuit/Chips around that hotel for 1.5 year old.
3) Although they serve filter water in the room, I was able to find algae in drinking water in my second room (55).
4) After requesting room service for 2 time, when I called third time after 1 hrs of the original request, they said they do not have any request .
5) I ordered water at 6:00 PM, I then ordered tea at 6:15..i got the tea at 6:30 .. then I have to called again for water at 7:00 PM..than at last I got some water at 7:15.
6) Furniture are very old & not well maintained..
7) They had very old television (15 years old).. & one of the color was not working in tube.. so I was getting all kind of strange colours..
8) Remote control of TV was not working for TV. I have to got it changed.
9) Room is located very far from reception & gate.
10) If you take Auto from hotel(there are no other option).. you have to pay minimum 50 Rs.
11) Doors & windows have gap so small flies can easily visible in rooms.
12) Tours facilitated by Hotel are relatively expensive.
13) Only one thing I liked is restaurant & their food service..
