I've stayed here twice - in 2001 and 2012 both times as a one night stop off en route to catching the Blue Mountain train from Mettupalayam into the Nilgiris Hills the next morning.
It's nothing flash but the rooms are spacious. Dont bother with anything above the Exec AC room RS3400.
The Cloud Nine Restaurant is a good place to get a sunset view of the hills in the distance if you are lucky with the weather and the Indian food is good authentic and spicy. The restaurant downstairs is not so good.
That train into the hills leaves at 7.10am and a lot of people hack it up there on the train from Coimbatore but if you don't mind spending RS800 on a sunrise drive go from the City Tower - 45 mins so book a taxi for 5.45am to be sure to catch it.
If looking for a driver in Coimbatore I can recommend the very experienced Mr Periyannan who has a spectacular ambassador car - often parked up outside the city tower - you can't miss him.
