“Above average hotel with helpful staff”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

We four of us stayed in a four bedroom and the room was clean enough. The room service was good but you have to order lunch or dinner half an hour early and that is justified. You will only get veg and if you order non-veg then they will bring it from nearby restaurants. We went to Ooty in January and our major concern was hot water and supply hot water in timely manner (I think once in morning and again in evening) but they provided us when we required.The manger is very friendly and he arranged car for us and the rate is ok.
I will recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The room towards the roadside or with the view of hill

The staff is very well mannered. Room and bathroom are clean. But transport issue if we use auto facility. price is really worth. food also good and cheap. Not so good. Need to improve However i can say low budget one for those who looking less than 1000 INR rooms with good stay Bed room and space are so good. I am satisfied with this Hotel no issues.

The staff is very well mannered. Room and bathroom are clean. Hotel food is not very good, infact very oily. Better to take your own food while visiting ooty as food is not good almost everywhere, can take MTR ready meal packets and order for rice. Hotel is good.

We all went to Orchid inn and stayed on 13-08-2011 to 14-08-2011. The service in Orchid inn was very poor. They have not even cleaned our rooms, when we checked in. The rooms were fully wet and slippery. The staffs in that hotel not even worried about that and they took their own time to clean the same.

They have not even given us hot water. Totally its not a Hotel, its just a third grade lodge.
