“Great experience; well worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Last Eid ul fitr, my brother & I decided to take the family to a Hill Station since we assembled in Bangalore. We carefully chose Regency Villas and drove down from Bangalore, via Mysore and the adventurous jungles of Bandipur Tiger Reserve; which was a shorter route to Ooty with N number of Hairpin bends and view of beautiful nilgiris all throughout, very scenic.

Regency Villas are located a short walk away from Fern Hill Palace Hotel, another beautiful Heritage Hotel in the Blue Mountains. We booked three rooms and I promise you, as you enter these rooms; you go back to the yesteryear's of erstwhile British India and appreciate the detailing on beds, bathrooms and even coat hangers & you may get confused thinking this place is in Scotland!

Meal arrangements were made at Fern Hill Palace and we enjoyed our Golf Cart Ride going from our small classic retreat to the Big Palace hotel. Though I preferred to walk and at nights & often got into the character of Prof. John Nash, thinking three people are always walking along with me in the dark!

Regency Villas are tastefully done, though a bit dated and some folks might even freak out, but that's the idea...adventure, relaxation and lots of laughter. Though I believe if you are not in a group, there may be chances that you may shiver a little bit. LOL :) Staff serving us were efficient, our beds were historic yet comfortable, rooms were neat and clean, evening tea outside our rooms overlooking the garden and the mountain ranges was a delight and definitely, a great family reunion. It has a big patch of well-designed walk way with large number of trees on both sides; giving a feeling of a park avenue; very romantic.

This is not a place for stags or you might get bored! I recommend this beautiful and photogenic Villas to all you folks who would like to stay away from hustle-bustle of the Mall Road and look forward to spending some quality time with your family or your significant other, apart from enjoying the great views and ever-romantic weather of Ooty!

Room Tip: Rooms are pretty good and I am sure once renovation will be over; it will be more appealing!

This property is an old property of heritage value. The property spread over 50 acres belongs to the erstwhile Maharaja of Mysore, The Wadeyars,
The location of the hotel is excellent but has not been managed properly and is a clear example of poor management. The rooms are old and at times the rain water pours into your rooms.
There are plenty of stories of the cottages being haunted. The security guards, the staff and the general manager ( a useless, money hungry and an ill mannered fellow ) keep on telling you these stories.
Sometimes, some wild boar might visit you, so be in your room if you decide to stay there.
This is favourite film shooting spot.

Room Tip: Not recommended to stay...........Dirty place....
