We stayed here for 4 nights this month and took some really awesome memories back home. The property is really beautiful giving a 180 degree view of Coonoor. It is quite well maintained and we lost count of the innumerable varieties of pretty flowers housing the property. The interiors of the room are pretty basic, they could do with a... More

We went with our friends for dinner around 8:40. The manager spoke to our friend who went to make a booking in a tremendously rude manner. They said there was no way to accommodate us for dinner, though we saw seats clear up. Refusal of service way before last orders are taken is evidence of how little consideration is provided...

We arrived at 180 McIver villa very excited and looking forward to the bragging rights of having stayed where Kapoor & Sons was shot. We fell in love with the old villa, the beautiful gardens and the spectacular views on the spot. We could not check in right away but they allowed us to stow our luggage until we could.... More

I am here now and I fail to understand how a restaurant can take 40min to serve your order.. That too when total strength sitting here in the restaurant is not more than 15....the staff seems to be doing a favour to us... View though is good.. But still I personally feel that this restaurant can be avoided in ..

for lunch or dinner, any day during a visit to Coonoor. Seven of us went for lunch and the dishes we requested - steak, grilled fish, and mushroom corn florentine - were delightful to say the least. Add to this is the ambience, a truly 180-degree view of one part of the picturesque town. They have large, elegantly furnished rooms... More

Very hospitable staff, calm and serene place just to relax and do nothing. Must mention all the staff were very courteous. Met the owners also Mr Junaid and Mr Armaan, very warm and loving people. Nicely located , serves excellent continental food and we lived in Balfour. Would definitely go again to spend my holiday there.
