Our stay was pretty decent here. The food is good especially the breakfast spread. However the hotel does not experiment with the menu much. We practically had the same food for two days we stayed there. The nature trek was good. However, the person who escorted us was rude. They made us wait for 30 minutes till all the guests... More

I would just say one thing - Missing this hotel ever since I checked out. This should summarize how great an experience I had at the hotel. The hotel might not be the most most luxurious hotels of Taj, but this was never the intent to visit Conoor. This is a heritage hotel with a classy feeling attributed to its... More

The absolutely unmatched Taj service makes this hotel stand out in Coonoor. The building is old but that is what adds to the charm. Extremely big room and great facilities to keep children occupied. Had several activities including bonfire, Housie, magic show as well. Would surely stay again. Loved the place.
