Had a great time at Hotel Sherlock. The hotel has a fantastic location and the service was impeccable. The food was outstanding. We had a car and so had no problems with transport. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The lawn was well mantained and the hotel offers a panoramic view of the city. One of the best hill station hotels I have stayed in.

I stayed here with my family and friends in Deluxe rooms which were very spacious, clean with lot of wooden work. The bed was looking very antique so as other furniture!!! British touch. :)

The most impressive was there food and i challenge that they have the same taste or better than some of the top notch restaurants in metros. The variety and authentic taste in whatever you order was amazing and as a foodie it was heaven for me.

The service is very good with special care. The hall is the place to relax with your favorite book in hand. Overall it was an awesome experience and had a nice time in ooty.

Room Tip: Take the valley facing rooms.

What a lovely place to stay - could imagine being back here in Colonial times, fantastic views from the garden, very attentive staff and good food. The room had an enclosed verandah which was great for sitting when not warm enough outside. The hotel isn't licensed but they were quite happy for us to buy beer and bring it back to have with our meal.
We stayed here in March and although it was warm during the day, it was quite chilly in the evening so the staff lit a fire in our room, provided hot-water bottles for the bed and lit a fire in the dining-room!
About 2km from the main town so no-where to walk but having visited the Botanical Gardens, the Train and the Lake, we were quite happy to spend the evening relaxing and keeping warm!

We visited it in mid march. The weather was good in ooty, better in coonnoor. We wanted to runaway from our daily hectic life for few days into a total contrast. For us hotel was important as we wanted to relax and not run to many places to see. For 3-4 days routine was to start at 12 and return in 3-4 hours and then stay rest of the time in the hotel. Now about the hotel. First thing, we were lucky to get one of the best rooms, with a small sit-out at the entrance of the room with comfy chairs, kettle for tea and an amazing view of mountains and well maintained garden of the hotel.
Rooms were clean and spacious. Attached bathroom was spacious and clean.
Best part is the view from the lawn in front of the room. You can view few mountains, few curved road cut on the mountains,weather starts bright in morning, becomes cooler by 12 noon and by 5 pm when we used to return, used to be a very good cold weather with mist floating around.
Dinner served is fresh and good. Manager Shiva fulfilled few of our odd requirements and did not even blink for a second. So the overall experience was good and we got the vacation we wanted from last 10 months. Keep it up guys.

The great and the good of the Raj in South India had summer bugalows like this! Set high on a hill overlooking the valley and Ooty, the Sherlock conjures up a lost lifestyle. This colonial bungalow is furnished with antiques and looks across lawns with neatly mown stripes and colourful flowers and shrubs. The staff could not be more attentive and friendly and one felt like the sahib and memsahib. We even had surprise candle lit dinners on our own verandah and fires in our bedroom for the cool mountain nights.

Sherlock is located on a small hillock in a beautiful location. The rooms have a great view. Rooms are spacious and very well maintained with a fireplace in each room. The breakfast veariety and the quality is very good. the restaurant also had outside sitting, where we can experience a great view while having food. There is a comon fireplace at the reception and a small library for timepass. I would definitely visit this property again,
