TTDC Hotel
Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

A very very special experience to remember. Everything about the TTDC cottage in Ooty was very good,except no supply of hot water in the evening due to power cut. The cottage at the first floor was too much spacious for us (my wife & me). I will suggest everybody to stay at this place if they come Ooty.

Well located; just above the main market area, but secluded enough to be away from the hustle and bustle to make one really comfortable. The suits are quite spacious and well maintained. With additional beds, on a charge, even a family of four can stay comofrtably in these spacious suits. The restaurant is reasonably big, but the choice of food is somewhat limited. Those who are comfortable with South Indian type of food should relish this place. Being an Hill Station, the rooms / suits are priced according to season. For a decent stay, which is affordable, I will definitely recommend this Hotel, while you are at Ooty.

Hotel Is located in center of city. As rates are competitive you have to book rooms well in advance to avoid last minute trouble. As this hotel is promoted by Govt. of Tamilnadu, behaviour of staff is like any govt. employee. They are concerned mainly with procedure and documents and in doing so they miss the essence of hospitality which base of Hotel & Tourism Industry. Assistants staff and porters are more interested tips. Other wise infrastructure AND Layout of Hotel is good. In Short Infrastructure is good but lacks service, other wise it can be compared to any three star hotel.

This Hotel is within the city and has a huge campus, in terms of Infrastructure. We were attended by rude gents sitting on the reception, and were asked to wait as the rooms were not available. The room charges are equivalent to three or four star hotels. We took a Villa at TTDC and have to leave the room, the next day morning. The rooms were not clean, neither the matress nor the pillow. You will find spider cobwebs on the walls, and it looks like the management doesnt look into the room hygine.

Very good location, charring cross. The room was very spacious. For the rate, I was pleasantly surprised at the size. The room was located in first floor. It had a long balcony, a very big room. Even with king sized bed, there was enough space every where! There was a small inner room with a normal bed, cupboards etc. When travelling with family, additional room such as the one would give additional privacy. Bath room with attached toilet and it was also very spacious. TV with cable service and tamil channels and other popular channels were available. Balcony was overseeing the lawn. There is a restaurant available within the hotel and they serve breakfast, lunch & dinner. Being centrally located, accessing other places in Ooty & coonoor were very easy. Availability of autos & taxis make things convenient for those planning to stay for a few days to weeks.

Other than the room size & location, there is nothing much good to talk about the hotel. The rugs in the bed were full of dust. In general, room cleanliness is something that needs a lot of improvement. Staffs were courteous but probably keeping the rooms cleaning should be their duty. The restaurant food was very ordinary (B/F, Lunch, Dinner). We tried a few restaurants outside and all seemed very ordinary. I could not try out few restaurants that looked on the higher-end within Ooty as they were crowded. It is very sad that Ooty being such an important hill-station in South India does not offer good restaurants and in general cleanliness is something that is hard to see in many hotels/restaurants. The hotel did not offer doctor-on-call service. When my daughter had fallen-ill with some viral infection, I had tough time locating a good child doctor and getting her treated. Finally I could find a small hospital and got her treated.

ttdc hotel is just off the charring cross and in a huge area.
the rooms are big , the view is nice, food is ok, the best part is that it will be easy on your pocket too and is well maintained.
being a government owned dont expect the reception staff to be too prompt or too courteous.
overall it is worth staying
