The first thing you feel when you enter the doors: "wow!".
When you talk to staff attending the reception counter: "nice!"
On your way to your room, wandering through corridors again looking at the entrance lobby: "wow!"
You enter the room and ... : "<sigh>"
This place is royal in proportions and setting. But sadly past its prime. :( Everything except the rooms was perfect! Food was awesome! Breakfast and dinner and everything we ordered to room was nicely prepared and well served. Prices are definitely on a higher side.
Room... it was not so bad but it certainly let me down. The room itself was nice setting but other things spoiled it. The closet doors didn't close even half way. There was a big gaping hole in the corner of the ceiling. Toilet was clean but bath tub was showing its age.
back to niceties: May is peak season in Ooty, and we found it way too crowded to our liking. Every sight seeing trip around Ooty required most of the time in traffic jams and ticket queues. So to beat off the rush, we found the hotel perfectly situated. Its just nice and i would certainly recommend it.. Just go in for the ambiance and food and peace.
