Fortune Retreats Resorts - Ooty
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We stayed at Fortune retreat in November 2012. We were given 1 bed room cottage(Fair Villa) which was about 5-8 min walk from the reception, but the entire stretch was uphill. The view from the cottage was very good. Though the staff was quite helpful and courteous, the room as such was not that great, the refrigerator was not working and there were no hindi channels on tv, The water heater was not functioning properly and the floor was sticky. The restaurant is decent but it takes a lot of time for the order to be processed. The hotel is quite far from the Ooty bus stand and the autos charge a minimum of 200 rs. If you are a person who likes trekking, you can opt for this hotel. It will take a little more than an hour to go climbing from the bus stand. In short, its an average hotel and if you have an option, choose hotels near the town or bus stand I would suggest hotel Poonmari or Nahar nilgiries instead.

We stayed at Fortune retreat in June 2012. We were given 1 bed room cottage which was about 5-8 min walk from the reception, but the entire stretch was uphill. The view from the cottage was very good. Though the staff was quite helpful and courteous, the room as such was not that great. The bedsheets were not clean and the TV was not working. On the 2nd day of our stay, the water in the bathroom suddenly stopped. We informed the staff, but it took them 3-4 hrs to pump water and rectify the problem.
The restaurant is not that great and I fell sick after having dinner over there. I suggest ppl to have food in the town instead of ordering from the restaurant.
The hotel is quite far from the Ooty bus stand and the autos charge a minimum of 200 rs. If you are a person who likes trekking, you can opt for this hotel. It will take a little more than an hour to go climbing from the bus stand.
In short, its an average hotel and if you have an option, choose hotels near the town or bus stand.

Room Tip: Choose Rooms near the reception if you want to avoid climbing uphill

We have booked fortune retreats for three nights and it was very good. We have booked two nights by online and extended one more night later. While we make the reservation we came to know that Free Wi-Fi in the room, But not. The online booking agency (Easy cloud) just making us blind. When I asked the reception only they realize it. Then the management offered me their reception computer to use internet. But I happily refused to use a public computer. Then they have arranged Wi-Fi in the reception. Free breakfast had been provided, 5% discount for dinner and lunch and 10% discount as well given for the extended stay. We always ordered room service; Food was tasty but less quantity and very expensive... (One day we were waiting long time for breakfast, I had to call the reception 3 times and I got really upset, so sad, but it is ok. Please note bad things will fly soon) we have stayed in Rose villa which is quite far from the reception. Room was clean and big, 24 hrs running hot water was the main advantage. This hotel is good if you come with your own vehicle, because it is 2 KM far from the main town. This hotel is in a hill top, provides silent and unpolluted atmosphere. The team is always being there for your assistance. They will arrange taxi, Auto for site seeing. The Manager (Mr.Vinod Issac) is offered their own car for me to take a ride to the down town. Actually Mr.Biju -the overall in-charge of the hotel made our holiday perfect, he is the hero, he is doing a great job there, He is so kind and almost always on duty. He proved that how to be in the hospitality service industry. We wish all the very best for him and his family. (We went his home as well :)) We really appreciate. All staffs at the front desk are doing great job. They are very polite. We recommend this hotel for families and people who wish calm and quite holiday, 100% sleep quality. If we come back to ooty.....Sure we will select Fortune.....Suneesh P Jose & Family (03-06.09.12)

Room Tip: If you come without your own vehicle,Please choose a room close to the reception.

We four of us, stayed here beginning of Sep'2012. Location wise this place was very good. But service was very poor.
Location: on top of hill and view is awesome (see the pic attached). We have been given 2 bed room cottage, which was about 100 m far from reception and the intercom of this cottage was not working. After repeatedly informing them, these people did not rectify the issue. Calling for food, water and other services, we had to go personally to them - which was bit embarrassing.
Food: Good Quality but quantity was very less, not sufficient and very very expensive.

Room Tip: Rooms near the Reception should be chosen else make sure your intercome is working.
