We stayed 3 nights in the Acacia, Gulmohar and Jacaranda rooms, and enjoyed our visit. The rooms vary a great deal, so you may want to inspect them before booking. The Acacia & Gulmohar rooms were off the living room, and were nicely decorated with old furniture and fireplaces. The Acacia was the best of the 3, with doors opening out onto the garden. The Jacaranda, where I stayed, was rather plain and was accessed from outside the house.
The staff and service at Wallwood Garden was very good. Breakfast was cooked to order and the one dinner we had there was delicious. There's a small garden with tables and chairs between the main house and the annex. It was a lovely place to sit in the sun and read - until the family of monkeys arrived and started swinging in the trees overhead!
If you're looking for a home-stay, you'll like Wallwood Garden.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Two hours from Coimbatore, in the heart of upper Coonoor, lies Wallwood Garden. Earlier known as Blair Atholl – it was built over a hundred years ago by a Scottish Major General, hailing from the village Blair Athol in Scotland. The Duke of Atholl still lives in Scotland in his own castle. Wallwood was later sold to a British couple after the First World War, who ran it as a boarding house for many years. It was purchased by Liptons before the Second World War and the house has remained in the hands of tea companies – currently with Matheson Bosanquet. The Mansion has retained the atmosphere of the past when tea estates had their own lifestyle ! It has its own prize-winning garden of the Nilgiris overlooking a unique pomological garden. It is located two minutes from Sim’s Park, one of India’s most luxuriant Botanical Gardens, laid out in 1874 with over 1200 species of plants and many old rare trees like the Rudraksh, Paperwood, Elephant Leg, Strawberry Tree etc. Savour the wildlife sanctuaries of Ooty, Pykara, Kotagiri & Bandipur, driving through the lush tea plantations of the Nilgiris. ... more less
