The hotel in itself is amazing and the staff was super nice. They were really helpful with everything, from calling a rickshaw for us to playing football games on the big screen. The breakfast was decent too. Overall had a really good time in coonoor. The location was really good, not too far away from the market.

The hotel enjoys a rich history of more than 150 years and is an attraction into itself. It is located roughly 5 minutes walk from the historical Bradford circle. Other attractions such as Sim's Park, Coonoor market and Highfield Tea Factory are nearby as well. The rooms are neat and clean and ooze the Taj charisma albeit in a heritage... More
