This hotel was a welcome retreat from busy ooty and a long drive through the mountains. I was welcomed with flowers and a lovely drink and shown to my room that managed to mix modern comforts with a quaint heritage.
The staff were delightful and friendly, from the man on the gates to the gardeners. If anything, the restaurant and housekeeping staff were too attentive for me (I am not used to that kind of service). The grounds are beautiful and watching the mist burn away over the hills in the morning whilst sipping a drink in the warm sun is a treasurable memory.
My best experience there was in the Ayurvedic Spa. The teamat the spa seem to shine with health and are friendly, helpful and respectful. The treatment I had (Sirodhara) was the most relaxing spa treatment I have ever had and it was in a room with a roaring fire that smelt divine. I'd go back just for that.
