3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

Strengths :
* Very close to the bus stop and train station
* Nice view on the lake
* Additional services such as meals, laundry, fire place, acces to the kitchen
Weakness :
* Hot water only very few hours in the morning
* Rooms very basics and cold. Dusty linen and bed not very comfortable
* Humidity smell around
I've been twice there. The first time few years ago I met wonderful people. Together we went for a treak organized by the owner of the guest house and we had a very good time. With some of those people we continued the journey through the souht of India and today, we are still in touch!
The second time, in the end of 2011, having a nice souvenir I decided to stop there again with my boyfriend. We found the place a little sad and abandoned.
Staff is kind enough!

dont go by the good reviews !! room was poorly light up, wet, windows are without latch ( notice board says dont keep valuables near window !! ). No room service, even you have to carry yourself morning tea. No hot water, it comes for hardly 30 min. in the morning. If you want beyond that timings, pay extra. Foods are very expensive, dont have food over there. Only thing is that, you can stay per day for Rs. 600/- . There are many travel agents once you are outside, so dont ask the owner to get cabs, they charge you atleast 30% more. Overall you can stay there if you are really poor !! Well one more thing, you will find enough mosquitos & flies in the room.......... search something better.

Room Tip: there are lots of budget hotels available, try others .......... book cab on your own thru Travel ag...

Lovely place to stay - 5-10 minutes from train and bus stations and the centre of town but on a really quiet road overlooking the lake. Communal lounge and dining area great for meeting other travelers and the lawn area with seats overlooking the lake is beautiful. Hot water in the mornings, rooms very comfortable and clean. Food served on request all day, trekking is bookable through the gusethouse. The women that run the place are lovely and friendly and helpful. All for a very reasonable price. Highly recommend staying here!

Room Tip: Some have balconies but all rooms overlook the lake.

Rachel and the ladies that work here cannot do enough for you during your stay and as a solo traveller I really felt warmed by the time and care they took in looking after me and making me feel welcome.

Though not 5 star, Reflections offers warm rooms with en-suite,TV and a lake view at a great price. Their location is close to the train station, a little away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre (though this is still easily reached).

For providing such value, such character and such service, Reflections comes highly reccommended.

I have never seen such a worst guest house in life, staying 4 days would make you feel like staying in Jail..you will be charged even for tiolet paper and almost everything..so irritating people would be there to pinch you....owner lady is so greedy and cleaver. if you will stay one whole day..your mood would get off and feel like running from there....
I will suggest you to live at any place in ooty but not there...

Stayed in Ooty for some time and at this guesthouse for a few days. I liked the layout of the place but sometimes all the stairs were a hassle. The bed in our room was just so wet all the time, partly because of Ooty's climate but I dont think the owners of this place kept up with drying things. There were dead mosquitoes squashed all over the walls. They do have breakfast and it was good most of the time but in the commons area the flies are horrible. Flies all over. Id recommend the YWCA in Ooty more than this place

budget hotel.. maintained but old construction ... so damp in rainy season .... small worms are everywhere ....so avoid in July-Aug.
otherwise a comfortable stay with lake view... the terrace garden is lovely....
they have no room service, no boy to carry your luggage... even you have to collect your morning tea yourselves..
don't go for any kind of food here. rate is too high and quality is worst....... they charged 104 for 4 slices of bread and two omelets...... better go to any near by restaurant like city palace/ paper and salt or somewhere else.
