LOCATION : For a hotel on a hill station one of the most imp factors is its location...location ....location & Delightz Inn is very lucky in this regard. The hotel is on top of tiger hill & at a dead end (top of the hill) so absolutely no traffic (which is great for me coming from Bombay)!! The hotel's location is just right as it is secluded enough from the city for it to be very peaceful but near enough (7-8 minute drive from the city below) for u to get social when u desire. But remember that you must have a car at your disposal at all times. If you havent driven here in your own car then hire one permanatly thru out your stay here. (The hotel can arrange this.) This hotel is most adequate for Indians those who want to spend time in Ooty for atleast a few days and enjoy, unwind, relax in peace. Its not for the harried traveller who wants to fit in Ooty, Kodaikanal, Mysore & Banglore .....all in an 5 day holiday .... by staying just overnight or just for a few hours.
ROOMS : There are only 16 rooms in the hotel. But each room is like a 1BHK flat !! There is a spacious living room good to seat 6 persons around a coffee table. There is a big bedroom with One double bed & one single bed. There is a small kitchenette in each room & rooms on the 2nd floor also have nice private balconies. Rooms on the 1st floor have a common long balcony. Plus obviously each rooms has a neat & clean bathroom. So....the rooms are really very spacious & adequately upholstered. It is possible for three persons to stay in one room easily. You can ask for a portable room heater for a nominal additional charge. The view from the balconies is awesome.
FOOD : The highlight here is the simple but very good Southindian buffet breakfast which is from 8 am to 9.30 am on the hotel lawn....under the warm sun. The breakfast has only 5-6 items....but each dish is very well made. The hotel has a kitchen which serves food to your room on order. The room service menu for lunch/ dinneris not very elaborate but all the items on it are well prepared & delicious. If u r planning to have dinner in the hotel then be sure to pre-order by 7 pm so that the hotel can arrange for your order to be served on time.
STAFF : Another highlight is the very simple, hardworking & co-operative staff. No unnecessary formalities & protocol. U can ask anyone for anything and u will get it.
SPECIAL Mention : Many thanks to Mr. Ramesh (the manager) whose suggestions, prompt co-operation & friendly attitude made the stay instantly plesurable. He further also has a team of very good lieutanants who are also very efficient specifically would like to mention Mohan who just works tirelessly to meet your every need.
VERY SPECIAL MENTION : Our driver Mr. Murugesh arranged by the hotel. He was our driver, guide & tour manager for the entire week that we spent here. It was a pleasure to have a competent, knowledgable & enthusiatic person to drive us safely in a well maintained car to all the beautiful places in and around ooty. His presence made the trip very enjoyable.
Some constructive suggestions to the hotel : Pls equip the kitchen with some cooking accessories.....or atleast an microwave oven....so that the kitchen can be used to the full extent. Secondly, pls think about starting a small dining hall, so that those who prefer can assemble there for dinner & it would make it much easier for larger groups to have dinner together.
Overall the hotel though simple gives you a feeling of coming back to your own home every single evening after an exciting visit to various places of interest in n around Ooty. Highly recommended to stay at the DELIGHTZ INN....really delightful experience. The room tarriff's are a real steal for the quality of stay & service.....visit while they last.!!!
