It is a large place with lovely views of the mountains. The hotel was not very crowded and consequently their chefs were on leave as we were told. Limited food was available. Kids can enjoy playing in kidzone

Stay at Sinclairs Retreat is awesome. I will suggest this hotel for fellow travelers especially for the location. If one wants to enjoy the real ooty climate (chilling nights, cool breezes) undoubtedly go for Sinclaris Ooty. We enjoyed the stay for 2 nights. Booked Premium room. Room is simply superb with all modern amenities and hygienic restroom. Room service was... More

First thing to put us off was a lack of directions to reach the hotel. It was very difficult to speak to anyone on the nos. given on the booking voucher. Front office staff lacks the warmth that they should have thus making check in experience not so pleasurable. Rooms are not well maintained and cleanliness levels are poor. One... More

Location of the hotel is excellent. Panoramic view of Ooty can be seen from the rooms. Room Tip : Choose a room on the upper floors and preferably not the corner ones. The rooms are a little smaller for such a nice resort. The food is really good. Overall really nice stay and enjoyable experience.

Really loved the hotel, the ambience, the view from my room as well as from the deck of the hotel. Staffs are courteous and pleasant. I would strongly recommend Hotel Sinclairs travellers. Place is quite and away from the city center. If you are from a city like Bangalore you surely love the environment and silence of the nature.
