This place is a gem. Beautiful house in lovely gardens along a lane away from the noise and bustle of central Ooty but near enough to walk or get short tuk tuk drive to the centre. We woke to birdsong.
We had one of the 3 rooms in the house - charming with views of the garden and a pretty bathroom. Was early February - brilliant sunny days and though cold at night, they offer choice of electric heater or log fire in your bedroom in evening.
The flower filled gardens are lovely and we only wished we had spent more time here to just relax, Lots of spots in the garden and house/verandah to sit and read.
Lovely dining room with doors opening onto the garden. Arrangements of fresh flowers in all the communal areas was a lovely touch.
The management was impeccable and the staff friendly and helpful. They arrange guides for trekking and suggested some nearby walks.
Very good value in this area compared with the competition.
We found it impossible to recognise from some of the negative comments made in some other reviews and other guests we spoke were equally charmed and delighted by this hotel.
