This hotel brings all the memories of the yesteryear's. Old traditional wooden floors, with a fire lit in every room. It has a warm welcoming feeling, except when its full and they seat you in the enclosed verandah. The food is excellent, both, the Indian as well as the continental. I had the Dal Makani, which was delicious. The stuffed Roast Beef Loin too was excellent. Meal for 3 was around Rs 1200/-. Gracious helpings too. They also have live music, which is very enjoyable, but the gentleman winds up by 9 p.m.

Located in a very beautiful hills area. An old banglow converted to hotel with a garden with full of flowers and greenery. Road to reach there is also very interesting. Food is tasty and has variety (a little expensive!?). Staff is also courteous and helpful.

This place is charming..... it is just lovely to see the way they have preserved their history ...every time i go i discover more and more . Though i wish they would put bigger signs along to road because if you are not careful .... you might just miss it and trust me ....you don't want to miss it.....The food that they serve is fresh , the portions are fantastic and the taste is Heavenly . Their continental is way better than the indian dishes...though the indian dishes are fantastic too. You have an option to sit indoors in their resturant or in the green house . An average meal for two will cost under 1000 Rs. So for the five star treatment you get ..... it is totally worth it .

Delicious Dahl makhni seemed a little unusual in this very English setting. It's fun though to sit there and imagine what life must have been like in the time of the hill stations. Rather chilly dining room, we had moved from the fireplace in lounge to dining room where the fireplace was not being used. Our group enjoyed their food and portions are generous.

Name of restaurant of a hotel in an old english bungalow tucked away in the hills of Ooty, but once you are there, it is as good as a treasure found. Very well prepared food, cordial staff, and damn easy on pockets.
