“Real bad place to stay”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

From outside the hotel looks good but if you stay there, it will turn out to be a bad hotel. Insufficient lights in the room make the room look even more shabby. There is no hot air blower inspite of the cold weather.
The service was the most horrible we experienced. The hotel boys just get into the room with a single knock and not even waiting for a response. This is the first hotel where we found that the restaurants attached to the hotel belong to different people and they demand the bill paid in cash immediately in a very rude manner and not attached to the overall stay. The hotel restaurants have no proper coordination with the hotel room service.
We went to stay there for 4 days but checked out next day itself due to the terrible service.
Food is equally high priced compared to the quality.

I was also on an Intrepid trip and was amazed that despite the regular business here by the organisation, the hotel could not honour our booking after confirming it earlier in the day. It was a holiday weekend and we were bumped to a disgusting annex, the rooms akin to concrete cells with no facilities. The second night was spent in the hotel but it wasn't much better as they couldn't even provide toilet paper (not good when Dehli belly had hit some of us). Our leader had to go and buy some from the market! The staff were surly and service in the restaurant poor. Stay away from this place.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a nicer view if you don't mind noise from the street.

We stayed here on an Original Intrepid tour ( not the basic ) and agree with other reviewers that the hotel staff were unhelpful and the rooms noisy, shabby and grubby. We arrived to find the hotel had double booked our group (despite the fact that this organisation stays here every week and our tour leader confirmed the booking by phone). We were offered the annex and a free meal, neither of which were a good experience. Many of the group were unwell while they stayed here and the traffic noise and poor sound proofing of rooms did not make this pleasant for any one.This is India at its worst and I wonder why a reputable organisation like Intrepid still use this place. Ooty was disappointing.

Nice older building with a inner courtyard. Quite noisy during the whole night, because the hotel is situated along the main street. The rooms are ok, except the bad isolated door to the balcony.
Possibility to book trips at the reception. The hotel also provides laundry service which worked well in our case.
It's not a hotel which would you choose for your honeymoon (as well as Ooty isn't the nicest place on the world neither) but for some nights we can recommend it with a clear conscience.

This is quite an old hotel for me and my friends, we have been coming here since 2006. Hospitality, service, food stuffs are good. Compared to many other hotels in Ooty, this one is really clean and neat, without any alcohol and fag smells.
Worth for what we pay.
Staying at Glanton Inn (Base of Ooty Ghat) could also be considered. As you get to see deers, elephants, wild pigs, etc. Right place for partying.

Room Tip: Ask for rear side rooms, as they provide good view and are less noiser

Date: 24th August 2010

This was my 2nd visit to Ooty and Coonoor. This time I went with my wife and cousins. We stayed in this hotel, I found this hotel as value for money. We were 7 people and took a 2 rooms to accommodate all of us.

Best part about this hotel is its location..it is in main town.. After the shopping in the evening, we came walking to the hotel. Also, at night time around at 10 PM, I came outside the hotel and found to be not at all isolated from town.

The service was good. Facilities wise also good. I would recommend this to the person looking for value for money hotel, not for traveler looking for Luxuries place.

Room Tip: Ooty is awesome.. only in the right season

Our Intrepid Group was the first to mutiny and refused to stay a 2nd night in this hotel. Filthy sheets, walls, shower; mold everywhere. Rude employees, noisy drunks, screaming all night long. We got stuck in the elevator. There is nothing good about this place. Stay away!
