“not recommended and no value for money you spend”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

10 Feb 2013
The hotel is located enroute to coonoor.2.5 kms from Hotel OOY GATE INTERNATIONAL junction.with out vehicle reaching hotel and getting to town is very difficult. its a narrow road with quite a number of large pit holes.Sherlock,sunshine hotel and delightz inn resorts are in the same route still road is in horrible state. Rooms are of cottage type.Cleanliness of room is average.room heater facility is not available, so its too cold in room.

Best Experience: View from the hotel, ambience, individual cottage type and small garden/chair presentation in cottage was the best part of the stay in hotel.

Worst Experience: Toilet cleaning was below standard,especially the drainage mesh is not clean.when we lifted the toilet seat lid, the bowl was left out with hair.which clearly indicates the attitude of the cleaning staff.
The worst part which we suffered for 4 days was the water problem.Dont know what type of water header tank/capacity they got if u flush toilet there wont be water in other taps.
As climate of Ooty is cold,it is mandatory to provide running hot water all the time.But the water heating mechanism the resort opted was gas heating, which was a pain in ***.The heater doesnt fire sometimes.we reported thrice,the staff come and fiddle around and report that it will be alright.It was never alright till we vacated.No room cleaning done in our 4 days stay.Overall the resort stay is not recommended and no value for money you spend.

My bad day started the moment I booked this cottage through their own website which was boasting of the best price than by other websites, it was really a good cheat, I was told that I need to fork out few more thousand rupees due to the season period! I agreed and when we reached the cottage, to be really frank, it was a total waste of money, the cottages were in a lonely place above a hill, the cottage that I stayed in, reall need some good maintenance, toilet locks were gone, toilet flush doesn't work, and there's no wifi, even it the hotel lobby which was about 200 meters away from our cottage, the wifi in their lobby is a total rubbish, in the end, I feel that it's an overpriced cottage stay, the only pros in this cottages are, they serve good breakfast and the counter staffs are very helpful, and it's very very quiet place

We booked 3 rooms (2 x Double and One Single) through Makemytrip as per their recommendation / advise (10th & 11th April,2014). After reaching we were put up in a cottage - filthy, stinking,unsecured. Most of the locks (Specially toilets) missing, Dirty toilets,shabby rooms, uncomfortable Pillows & Mattresses. It was located far off (Down the lane about 100 meters) from the reception & restaurant. After calling Makemytrip & expressing our displeasure & after hot exchange they changed the cottage but the same was also not good. We were forced to cut short our Ooty stay and left next day (Though the payments were made in advance and did not got any refund). Food & Complementary Break Fast was very poor quality. Front office staff are over smart and try to exploit tourists.
It is surprising that how they are rated as PLATINUM GRADE by Makemytrip. It seems that most of the REVIEWS post praising them is made by themselves/ their own people.
MakeMytrip must think twice before referring this resort in future to retain their reputation.

dear sir

we rectify your complaint . you can enjoy next visit in ooty at fortune

This is a resorts meanings individual villas in 15 acre land . so all cottage has 50 meter distance one cottage to other cottage. so you will get good privacy
I enquirer about your satay . you stayed in cottage no 1 , many customer like this cottage. I think your tour program has unorganized , your flight is next day morning from coimbatore , so must checkout next day

I apologized you and I am sorry for the inconvenience of your tour

Fortune retreat has independent cottages (1,2 & 3 bhk), the one ear the reception 3 BHK isexcellent. We booked 1 BHK but they upgraded to 3 BHK for free. The approach road to hotel is slightly bad but it justs 500 mts so manageable.Coming to food they serve everything in room((which has a dining table)in a casserole, food is good. Special mention to the views from the balcony it is excellent when you can see the mist descending down the Hill. Excellent property go for it

We had a took time off from our busy chores of City life and wanted a break. Destination based on majority of family members decision was Ooty. Next Step was to decide place of stay. One of my friend referred to Fortune. Reached there with minimum expectation, however it turned out to be a wonderful experience at Fortune. Great Place to stay nice staff and management. Good and hygienic food, veggies options are no that much, however what ever they offer is too good. Horse riders come in front of the villas in the mornings, u can take a ride its a wonderful experience. Great Experience...Too Good location, me and my family had a great time at Ooty. We would recommend it for our friends, they also arrange for campfire.

Room Tip: Ask for Rose Villa if you are couple, uphill ones are Good
