This is a relatively small resort with just about 16 rooms but the management and staff are very warm, courteous and make sure you have a comfortable stay. The resort is a few km before the main ooty city and has a splendid view of the valley and mountains. The property is very well maintained. The restaurant serves fresh home made style food and cater to all kinds of requirements to the maximum possible.

Overall a very comfortable stay. One of the best resorts in Ooty.

Room Tip: if traveling with family, go for the deluxe cottage - it has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a lobby, di...

The property is slightly above average in terms of location etc. However, we had booked a premium suite, but got only a standard room. The management told us they called a room a suite, and we paid 9,000+ per room. The room and facilities/ fittings are 2 star at max; however, the resort location is excellent. Would recommend other places including Taj, Fortune, Mahindra etc; they are lesser/ similarly priced to this resort with much better facilities.

Room Tip: ..Rooms need to have more facilities apt for a 4 star which they call themselves. The bathroom fitti...

We made our trip to Hill Country , Lovedale Valley 10 kms from Ooty in May 2013.We made online reservations and the resort was excellent. Value for money. The staff, rooms, food were just superb. They have maintained the hotel VERY WELL.Nestled in the hills of Ooty the place is situated so wonderfully that one can just chillax and enjoy the view from the resort itself. We experienced bonfire and dance party. there is a very well maintained indoor Sports room. The park area for children is also very well though t of. So if you are planing a trip to Ooty dont look beyond Hill cOUNTRY Lovedale!! You will be thoroughly satisfied.

Reservation and Booking:
The reservation process was smooth and friendly.

Getting There:
Just a bit off Ooty on the Ooty-Coonor main road. Watch for 'Grand Duff Road' sign post on the right.

Rooms:
Rooms are big and spacious. The valley view was special.

Food:
Decent food. Have to order at least 30 minutes in advance. As a part of the 'breakfast included' package we were expecting a buffet breakfast, but found that we need to order breakfast of our choice from the menu instead. However there were no restrictions as such.

Hospitality:
Hospitality was good. Staff are friendly and well-behaved.

Things to do:
Quite a bit based on your preferences. We chose a half day sight seeing tour of Ooty which included botanical gardens, boating, Dodda betta, visit to a Tea factory. We also walked down to the Lovedale Railway station which is around 2Kms from the resort.

Overall, it was a relaxing time with a couple of friends and families.

I stayed at Hill country from May 12- May 14. Location of the resort is a big plus, though little away from city centre (~6 kms) but good place. However language is big problem, most of the staff in resort understand tamil and can barely speak \ understand english. Restaurant is very small and quantity and quality of food is not great. Most of the items served in breakfast were completely cold and taste wasn't upto the expectation. Hope you'll find this review helpful.

This is the worst of holidays I ever had.
There was loud banging of our room doors by someone at 1:30 in the night when we we were sleeping. The family that stayed in the opposite room too had the same experience of banging of doors at night. When we called the reception no one picked the phone. The room service took 10 minutes to reach our room. By then, the person switched off the power to our rooms and left. The previous night someone tried to unlock the door. When we called the reception, it took the security 10-15 minutes to come to the room. God only knows what the hell of a place this was. Both us and the family in the opposite room checked out the next morning. There is no security at all in this place. The location is good. The approach to the place is also not well lit. Be careful when you go there!

Room Tip: I would not recommend anyone to go here. The place is lonely. The security is terrible. Please visit...

We sincerely regret the bad experience you had during your stay at the resort. We want to assure you that your issue was taken up with the staff at the resort and necessary actions have been implemented to prevent such happenings in the future. Actually on that night there were few other guests staying at the resort and one among them was so drunk that he was not able to locate his room and mistook your room as his. However, we apologize for the harrowing experience you went through.
The comfort, happiness and safety of our guests is of utmost importance to us. This a rarest of the rare incident that had occurred and we can assure our guests that such incidents will never occur again.
