Cottage: Fair Villa
First of all I was in confusion before booking Fortune retreat on MakeMyTrip after viewing lot of negative comments. But now I feel that I made a right choice. It's truly worth for 4 stars.
LOCATION: It's situated at the foots of Doddabetta range very near to tea factory. It's a fantastic location. From my dining hall window I could able to see Doddabetta foot hill. The only issue is you need to travel approx 6kms from Ooty bus stand in a sophisticated road. Book this hotel only if you are visiting Ooty in your own vehicle or planning to book taxi.
HOTEL: It contains approximately 14 cottages with steel sheet roofing in series and approx 8 villas with concrete roofing. In our villa there was a dining hall (with refrigerator, table, wash basin, 4 chairs), a big hall (with LCD TV, double bed, dustbin, 2 couch, a table, wardrobe, make up table & stool), a bathroom (with a gas geyser, western toilet, wash basin with geyser connection, dustbin)
FOOD: It's below average but compared to hotels in the city it scores average. Room service is prompt and they will charge 15% extra for that. Comparetivly pricing is good.

-Staffs are not so Co-operative. They asked us to bring down the luggage to reception 2 hours prior to check out time. When I strongly denied to do so, they became silent. Even room service boys behavior is also kind of rude.
-No shower facility.
-Water is Hard, you can't get rid of soap easily (not recommended for head bath)
-Bathroom floor is too slippery.
-Refrigerator was not working. (Even we didn't required in such a weather)
