“nice place by ajay from cochin”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

i had stayed at this hotel from 26th aug 12 to 29th aug 12 .good location good staff .but only thing is that the semi deluxe rooms are small ,only for couple +1 child .room is very good neat and clean.restaurant is damm expensive ,dont have any veg or non vegitems under rs 300 .but i will definetly recommend this hotel as the location is very good you have to drive 3km up on mountain own car is a must.clean air no pollution no sound of traffic and the temperature is also different from ooty town .i recommend going for the deluxe rooms as it is big ,but there is a difference of rs 2000 between semi and deluxe rooms. and anotherthing is that all semi deluxe rooms are facing restaurant. when you open the room door any one sitting in the restaurant can see inside the room. i will definitly come back here next vacation.,but will only stay in deluxe room.

Room Tip: go for semi deluxe only if you are couple.

We visited this hotel with our family in July. The hotel is on top of hill so one gets a good scenic view. The rooms are spacious and decent. The hotels offers delicious food and very warm and comfortable stay. The main disadvantage is the road leading to hotel is in not in good shape and sign board provided to hotel are too small so can be missed out easily in night. Although a being a comfortable and nice hotel, it is slightly over-priced.

Room Tip: Choose a room which with a sit out area, so u can enjoy evening view even its cold outside

Just recently visted this cosy hotel. Good location, good staff, excellent food- though quite expensive.
The hotel has everything good except for their standard room. The standard rooms are small and damp...the room had water sepage (silhan) on the wall. They absolute lack privacy- the rooms open in the common area where other guests may be sitting (since it is a small cosy hotel). You get disturbed by the working of hotel staff as the kitchen and dining area are adjacent to it.
When you decide to stay in this hotel, for sure, take the luxury rooms- they are lovely with good views.

Me and my wife finalized this hotel after several dilemmas and searches only to realize that it was indeed one awesome stay which will stay in our memory for ever. The hotel is located at the top of a cliff and I would bet you wont get this view in any other hotel in Ooty. Besides that, the garden and the sit-out of the room facing the garden gives awesome experience. When we checked in, it was just after the long weekend of Ramzan and so since no one else in the luxury rooms. So we were given a luxury room called Black Peter which gave us more privacy . Staffs were very courteous and prompt. They provide the firewoods in the nights as compliment and that adds to the experience. Food was awesome and the room is very neat. If you are looking for some south-indian food at the night, then it is a problem as you get everything except South Indian food at nights. Food is bit costly but it is ok considering you go there once in a while. They arranged for a taxi and the driver was too nice to show us a lot of places in and around Pykara and the Dodabetta peak in Ooty. Overall, an excellent and memorable stay.

Thanks,
Santhosh

Stayed in Sherlock for couple of days in the first week of Aug. Stayed in the Semi-deluxe room. Service and stay was very nice.
Pros :
-Excellent service , we were sitting besides the fireplace while we ordered dinner...and the staff made sure dinner was served there without being asked for ! Also they remembered to serve us warm water since we asked for it the prev day. Nice little things.
- liked the theme : Sherlock Holmes :) Our room was called Gloria scott .
- Stunning location and nicely maintained garden.
- Old world charm
- Awesome food (A la carte)
- Best thing is that there are just few rooms ...so staff know everyone staying.

Cons :
- About 2 km uphill from town. So be ready to take an auto / long walk. Travel desk is helpful wth arranging travel though.
- Water in the washroom was a bit brownish on the day we went. Don't know why. We did complain , but didn't improve much.
- No heater in rooms. Free fireplaces though :) Staff would light them whenever you want in the evenings.
- Take the luxury rooms. Semi deluxe ones lack privacy and has sound coming in from the dining area.

Room Tip: Book luxury rooms
