Excellent ambience, fabulous location, wonderful service. I would find no fault with this place at all. The tea bar Tranquilitea right next door makes awesome quiche and brownies. The staff at Wallwood were ever attentive. They arranged a car for us and we enjoyed roaming the hillside, both on wheels and on foot. The two suites are a bit off the main building and could possibly have an intercom phone. One hates to ring the bell and summon someone everytime one needs something. Food is all right. The south indian stuff was great, but the continental dinners can sometimes be a bit tedious. But they'll make whatever you want if you make your choice known. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to repeat it whenever we can.

Wallwood garden happened to us because of Tripadvisor and were we obliged for it! We had planned a weekend trip to Coonoor in March ,(a) because we were in Chennai and (b) because it seemed a cute little hill station minus the hustle-bustle of big brother Ooty thats half an hour away. Well, Wallwood couldn't be more symbolic of Coonoor in case of the latter as it literally seeps under your skin with its serenity.

The place, owned by the Neemrana group which specializes in converting old heritage properties into hotels, is a charming sprawling cottage set amidst a little garden, very close to Sims Park. Wallwood has retained its archaic getup and antique furniture superimposed by all the modern amenities that you would like to live in and scores full marks in atmosphere, probably because you know it belonged to some Scottish Duke!

The garden is not quite big but just right for a morning tea or an evening sit-out while breakfast is best had in their morning room which overlooks overlooking some amazing foliage-topped hills. But the most wonderful part of the stay in undoubtedly the Manager Geeta and her super-efficient, and friendly staff. They were full when we were there and though there was a bit of delay in serving meals etc., you couldn't get upset seeing the sheer effort the staff put in to make those meals so special. Indian, South Indian and continental - we tried out everything and I can't seem to remember a thing wrong about any!

I would seriously recommend this place to people visiting Coonoor if you are looking for a memorable place to stay.

Wallwood Garden is a bungalow built around 1912 by a Scot, and formerly called Blair Atholl, situated on the main road to Kotagiri. It was subsequently sold to an english couple who ran it as a bed and breakfast, before it passed to Liptons Tea. It is still owned by a family in the tea business, and leased t the Neemrana Group of Hotels who run it as a bed and breakfast. The lady manager is very efficient and speaks good english. We chose the largest room, an annexe in the garden, which was traditionally furnished with a large and updated bathroom. The staff were keen to please and carefully discussed what we would like to have for dinner and breakfasts. It is in a good, quiet location, high out of town, amongst up-market properties and near to the Botanical Gardens. There are tea plantations to visit and good walking. They arranged a car and driver for us for our onward journey. One downer - the monkeys arrive at tea-time in search of food and they are swarming all over the garden !

This was the second Neemrana property we'd chosen to stay at and once u know what to expect from a Neemrana holiday -- its fairly straightforward...got in touch with the property's manager Geetha by phone and she was ever so helpful in organising a vehicle to pick us up at Mettupalyam station, arrange an alternate private guest house for one night as they were running full at the time and finally when we reached Blair Athol making sure we enjoyed every moment of our stay there! its this personal touch that u'll never get at a Taj property or any of the other well managed hotel chains..they'll try n pamper you at a price but it'll never get warm n human the way I've experienced both the neemrana hotels i've stayed at. the rooms here have exquisite names and each has a distinct character all its own..they're spacious n have all this old cosy heritage furniture that never seems out of place...from easy chairs to lounge in to the large comfortable beds..now u're wondering if I'm being a spin meister for the group who had an expenses paid holiday to write this!! nopes...i was having a holiday with my US-based sister's family for the first time ever n so it was important we stayed at a comfortable place, that was quaint, charming, peaceful n leisurely...for starters Coonoor is easily one of the best if not the best destination in the Nilgiris in most ways..much quieter n idyllic than noisy, commercial Ooty, the lovely Sims park, is just a 5-minute walk from Wallwood n enroute u pass this exquisite tea boutique called Tranquilitea...its a must stop if u're a tea buff who also likes quiche, crepes n other such exotic (to an Indian) bites.
Wallwood also has this nice lil garden out front n if u stroll to the back of the bungalow..u can see the shola forest at the rear, where the occasional bison is reported to graze...the dining area in fact overlooks this wooded area n the food is excellent..tho given the barebones staffing they do on all their properties..u'd have to be patient while waiting to be served...a good holiday experience, at a price which makes u realise the good things in life never come easy or cheap..u want to go there again but to do so, u have to be a regular saver!
