Reviewed April 9, 2014

We had great time at highland hotel, We select this hotel by going through with earlier reviews on the web sites. It is an excellent hotel with friendly staff and good services , Rooms are good. Food quality is very good but need to improve varieties in menu.Overall stay at Highland hotel is enjoyable.

Good hotel at good location.The services and Food quality is very good.The rooms need to be more noise insulated especially the TV cabinets.The noise from the other rooms are affecting the sleep quality. Otherwise Rooms are very good.

We chose this hotel from Goibibo and got best price for breakfast & dinner package. As expected and as per earlier reviews in other web sites, this is a wonderful property. Located on "Doddabetta" and have beautiful views all around. Although the climate in city was quite hot, because of hill top the climate around this hotel was very cold and enjoyable.
The quality of rooms, bed, wash rooms, restaurant, complimentary breakfast & dinner served over here was extremely good. The staff very professional and nothing to complaint about.
The highlight of this property is the program conducted by Mr. Siva Kumar. Everyday for about 1 hour, all families get together and have fun like games, dance, songs etc at no extra cost. We cant find such entertainment in other property.
Although it was quoted as 5 star in Goibibo, it is a 4 star property but really worth staying. We strongly recommend to other travelers to Ooty, especially to family with their own vehicle since it is about 8 Kms away from the main congested city.
Thanks to the Management of Highland Hotel for having such a wonderful and balanced staff.

Stayed at the Highland during 29/3/14 for 3 Days and 2 Nights. The property belonged to an educational institute which has been converted into a hotel nearly two years back. It is located almost 6.5 Km away from Ooty railway station on Ooty Kotagiri highway. Markers on the highway along with the grand entrance of the property makes it hard to miss. Dodabetta peak, a prominent tourist spot of Ooty is very nearby. The surrounding of the hotel is very quiet and serene and you will not see any human interference with nature for miles. The hotel itself is situated in a slight depression below the road level and offers an awesome valley view.

On the inside, the rooms are spacious and appear to be newly built/renovated and boast wide windows offering great view of the valley. The fitments in the room as well as the bathroom are of high quality.

Food in the restaurant was delicious and had a wide range of selection. This was perhaps the best buffet offering I have ever seen. The ala-carte menu was no less. Surprisingly, it was the Breakfast that topped above all. The restaurant 'Seasons' also has a great valley view which makes your food even more enjoyable

However, the most heart warming aspect of the hotel was the efforts the staff has made. They were very polite and cordial. Holding of evening entertainments show and bone fire made the stay at Highland a memorable experience.

I would definitely like to stay as well as recommend Highland for prospective Ooty travellers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the highest (2nd) floor

We spent a long weekend at Highland recently. Chose Accord by chance browsing through TA. Here is my view on Accord and hope it helps you plan your Ooty trip better.

1) It's a property which is little off the main town. Arguably, not many good hotels either are within walking distance of the town (aka Charring Cross) so travelers would anyways be prepared to stay a bit away from the town. Its well connected through smooth roads to the town and bang at the junction of Doda Betta, which is a big draw for everyone. So, locationally this is not a disadvantage, rather a good plus (we walked upto Doda Betta from the Hotel :)).

2) The Hotel has some great valley views from their room and also the reception / foyer / lawns. Spectacular sunrises are complimentary. Insist for a Valley view room and you have taken care of your holiday.

3) Neat rooms, smart lights, flat TVs, good bathrooms (with tubs and showers), decent bed, a writing table, a lazy couch, tea coffee maker in the room and good sized room as well. So, a good show on the rooms as well.

4) There is a playing ground at the back (super mountain views again), with provisions for bonfire and outdoor games, a room with indoor options like carrom / chess, some comic books for children. A huge reception area which has enough sit outs (this also doubles up as evening entertainment zone as the hotel team plans a fun evening every day). Plenty of parking space too for all kinds of cars.

5) Very friendly and supportive staff, 24X7 - witnessed first hand :) All sorts of requests from playing cards to toothpicks were welcome and quickly attended to.

The property packs in a punch overall as an awesome value for money. Here are some points which they may need to think about -

1) The wi-fi at the room is slow. Its complimentary but only picks up speed at the reception.

2) We had to haggle / bargain a bit on music and bonfire. Didn't quite like that when it happened, but was a pleasurable experience after that was over.

3) The food was average, though it picked up a lot of quality the next night (and we thanked Chef Thomas for that). The buffet spread was small (very limited desserts option) and on the predictable side. They could do well with a bit more energy around the food.

Overall, nice place and a good discovery for me (this was my 8th Ooty trip). Would recommend it to everyone. Read the pros and cons and decide.

Room Tip: Insist for a valley view room

We checked in on 29-3-14 as we had booked TAj Savoy but did not get the room in Taj for the same date.

Arrival details & checkin: 0/10. it's the highest hotel in nilgiris and it's simply awesome . Approach road is easy if you have your map or gps phone with you.
It took us 5 mins to check in and we were allotted a room with a fantastic view on the 2nd floor.

Rooms: 10/10. spacious, new and cozy with a great view. Pillows are hard so recommend that if you have booked this hotel, carry your pillow if your used to a soft one.

Restroom: 2/10. the throne is uncomfortable as it's high mounted and for people who like reading your newspaper in the restroom, it's not a good place to be in.

Food: 9/10. The foods good with great In room dinning as the good was delivered in time . Food served is very fresh and tasty. Restaurant staff are really helpful and their service is excellent.

Staff : 10/10. Amazing customer service . Sometimes it's better than the service you get at taj or leela or equivalent hotels .

Breakfast buffet : 9/10.good spread with tasty food

Best part about the property ; THE VIEW .

Overall rating :10/10 except the restroom which is uncomfortable.
