“Great place for a homely long stay in Ooty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

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.!!!

Room Tip: Choose the rooms on the 2nd (ie. the top floor). Choose the rooms at the extreme far end of the hote...

The service was excellent and the location was good. Only suggestion is to put signal boards in ooty town, as the first signal board is coming only near ooty gate hotel. Also, please put the route map on the site and it will be helpful to reach easily.

Stayed in the hotel for two nights with family. The location of hotel is excellent, the view from balcony is breathtaking.
However, if you are coming to Ooty late in the evening then auto drivers are reluctant to drop you off (hotel is located almost on the top of hill) or else will charge exorbitant fare (around 300-400 rupees). Also, calling itself as apartment hotel, they should some more facilities inside room such as room heater (had a great difficulty to keep our self warm especially my 4 year old kid), tea/cofee maker etc.
Room service is good, hotel staff is helpful, but quality of food can be improved.

Room Tip: View from corner room balcony is very nice

one of best stay., I was impressed with. the location and the food was very good. wonderful stay... hope to have a another good stay in delightz inn. my little suggestion is to place a bigger way director on the coonor road because it was quite tough to identify the way to tiger hill. hope every one would enjoy their stay and congrats to the hotel authorities.

It’s a Great place to stay in ooty with family . In front of hotel , we can enjoy the beauty of nature and it’s a great visual treat . Staffs in hotels are very helpful , friendly and they know how to give respect and handle customers without any issues . Food is also very nice. They provide breakfast as complimentory , but all day menu looks same , but food is good . This hotel is little far from Ooty , say 5 km from Ooty bus stand and its good stay far from noise and disturbance from city. We will enjoy the saty anyway . When I discussed with manager regarding the distance , he told that they are going to start free shuttle service to hotel from bus stand and railway station which is very good thing , So hope they are ready to understand customers concerns and it will raise their value . If I visit Ooty next time , Sure I will book this hotel only .. NO Doubt  . We will feel like we are staying in our home . Hotel staff make us so comfort . We have a 2 years kid and hotel staffs helped to prepare milk and boiled Rice as per our instruction how to prepare that . We cant find such helping staffs in any other hotels . Rooms are so clean and Big . Nice bed .
Its very difficult to get a nice hotel like this in below 2000 Rs . We enjoyed our stay .. Without this hotel , may be I cant say like we enjoyed ooty completely .

So thanks to Ramesh and other staffs in the hotel.. After checkout also , they provided another room to have quick refreshment .. So Iam so happy to stay again in this hotel next time and its Perfect deal  ..

Enjoy ..

Room Tip: Front View rooms are superb .. we stayed in 107 its a nice room .. Ask for some front view rooms...

Delightz Inn is the right place to stay in Ooty. It is situated on top with beautiful view. Food and Room service are very nice. Rates are also worth. They can help in planning your sight seeing in Ooty, conoor, Avalanche and provide the transportation from hotel also. We stayed there for 3 nights at cost of 5300 and visited Pyakara, Conoor, Avalanche at cost of near 4000 and dinner, tea, lunch costed 1000. I had some minor concern and suggested them to improve it but overall fully satisfied. On last we are supposed to check out at 12 noon but our bus time was 6 pm and the allowed us to stay there for that day without any extra charge.
