“Reasonable stay @ Ooty”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We were at Mysore and suddenly decided to visit Ooty. We landed at Maneck Hotel and the rooms were not that great so we were given an option of checking in at Maneck Residency which was better.

We opted for Family room which had 2 separate bedrooms. Each room had a big bed with TV. There were no towels / soaps provided to guests. Hot water was available from 7-10 am only. The bed and blankets were good. The door locks were not working properly and there was no bathroom mats. After several reminders, we were given a cloth which was to be used as mat. These small things needs to be addressed by the management.

They have a restaurant and food is bad, we ordered for snacks and it was oily and burnt. For Breakfast, they offered Idli and Vada which was equally bad. We requested them to get our dinner from other restaurant and they got it from Nahar ( Utsav Restaurant ) which was good. Room service is average and needs to be improved.

The location is near to bus stand and railway station which is positive. Overall we got a good deal as it was off season. The check in and check out is 12 noon but they were flexible for couple of hours.

We started our journey back to Bangalore through Gudalur - Mysore route. At Gudalur, we had our lunch at Archies Restaurant at New Panchayat office. This is a small restaurant, food is delicious and DO NOT MISS IT. They serve hot gravy dish in pots which will suffice for 4 people and are charged at very minimum price. WORTH the MONEY.

Room Tip: Maneck Residency is better and Family rooms are good. Request room service boys to get food from Nah...

I stayed with family in Dec 2012 for two days. First, they didn't book for five days. After 2 days, the price was increased too much. Room was damp, bathroom was dirty, linens & blankets were dirty. Towel and soap were not given. Bed-tea, breakfast and dinner comes from other place and so do not remain warm and tasty. Manager and staff are do not care for the guests as if there is a monoploy. Do not try Maneck Residency.
Ravi, Mumbai

Room Tip: Try another hotel.

I stay for 2 days here. Issues: Hidden charges and staff behavior is not good. !! They keep opened the window so that room gets more chilling and people ask for additional blanket and the hotel charge extra money for that. I have an argument regarding tax as they collect but does not give proper receipt. For small toothpaste they will charge extra. Only 3 hour hot water.

Room Tip: Do not go for this hotel. I would say this is more like a lodge.

We stayed there in December during high season. First we tried Hotel Maneck and the guy there was very helpful and got us a room at the Residency. Price was okay but staff there hardly spoke any English. The room was big enough and gave a clean impression. We gave them our laundry and from first promising to get it back 6p.m it moved up to 10p.m., then to 9a.m. when we got it still wet. They dried it again but it stank afterwards more than before. We stayed right at the first floor were it was very loud as the window was shared with the neighboring room.
