Though our stay was very small, one night only, I booked 4 bed two rooms, the rooms were not very clean, water was leaking in the room from walls. They said that brakefast is included in tarif but their breakfast starts only after 8 am that means it is not available for you if you are moving out before 8am. Restaurent is very small and limited items are available (not all items from menu)

This place is recommended only if you want to save money.
Let me tell you the entire incident.

This place is okayish if you are looking to spend just a night and not expecting any services.

We had books room with 2 doube bed for a family stay.
First thing is, the room size is same, for a 2 double bed room they will reduce the size of bed and add one bed.

You have to remind a lot of times to clean your room.

The staff is okay until any real problems.
The real problem with these guys is their tie-up with the travel agency for local sight seeing and for inter city transport.

I had booked local sight seeing package for my family for 2 days and let me tell you, completely unsatisfied. Bad buses, no guide (which was part of the package), missed a lot of imp places due to their mismanagement.

The biggest problem was they cheated. I asked their manager to give me info for travelling from Ooty to Kodaikanal. He immediately told that there is one bus everyday from Ooty to Kodaikanal. I was happy that there was a bus available as I was not able to find any from redbus.in
I paid him 500 per head, total of 2500 for that journey. Before paying I asked 3-4 times that it should be a sleeper coach, and the manager said yes.

On the day of journey, a tavera came to pick us, they told, this vehicle will take you to the bus. Fair enough. We reached the travel agency from where we will be boarding the bus. But the guy at agency told that we will be travelling in the same tavera with 5 more people.
So it was total of 10 passengers and 1 driver that too in a hilly area. Plus I wanted a comfortable travel as the journey was 8-10 hours.

The same cheating was done with the other 5 passengers who were again a family with a 1 year old child.


When I tried to talk to travel agency, he said talk to your hotel, he doesn't care. And When talked to the Hotel, he said he was not responsible.
Seeing this, I also offered him to rent out entire vehicle by paying the full amout for the vehicle but that adamant fellow did not accept it.

After rounds of talking on phone with Hotel manager, he said he just helped me and will not do anything to resolve it. After such replies from both the sides, I decided to call police and lodge a complain. Before that my dad clarified with the guy about our intentions.

Finally, looking at my anger and now my dad also getting firm for the action he changed his stance and offered another tavera with a request that we should pay some more and finally I paid him 4500 for for Tavera to Kodai.

The travel agency name was Shakti travels.
So refrain from booking anything through hotel and stay away from Shakti travel.

Stayed there for a night halt. Reached early morning around 6am. The Manager had already made us aware of the auto charges from Ooty bus stand to the hotel and it was exactly the same. Usually they have check-in time as 12:00 noon, still they gave us make-shift room for relaxing and getting freshen-up until we got our pre-booked room around 8:00am. Room was neat & tidy and spacious. The bathroom was clean & large. They arranged our cab & package tour for sight-seeing in Ooty & Coonoor. The only backdrop is that the hotel faces Coonoor main road, so you'll be disturbed by the continuous honking of vehicles passing by. Recommended for 1 night stay.

Room Tip: Try avoiding rooms facing the main road. You might get disturbed by continuous vehicle honking even...

Ooty is a hilly town. Probably one need to choose 3-star and above to get proper accommodation. Experience at the hotel was not good. One side is too close to another hotel. Rooms facing road-side are to some extent all right. Food quality is not up to the mark. Travel support is all right.
