Before going to Ooty I reviewed a lot of hotels. Reviews for this hotel were decent. So booked it and went ahead. But after reaching there I understood that all those good reviews must had been written by the hotel guys themselves - to promote their own hotel. Dont go there even if they offer free accomodation.
Quality of accomodation - This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed. They charged Rs.1500 per night. By spending that amount you can easily get better rooms in other hotels within 50 meter from this hotel.
Recepetion - Their reception area looks like a small godwon. This area is used mostly for sleeping by the manager and his staff. This is accompanied by an equally shabby kitchen which can provide only tea/cofee or boiled water.
Room service - Worst. They have only two staff - one filthy looking manager and another guy. Every thing I asked for was either not available or they ultimately forgot to provide
Restaurant - They do not have any restaurant. If you ask them to bring it they will bring some cold sub-standard food from a nearby Pooja Restaurant.
Security- Fully unsecure. Outsiders can easily reach your door without passing through the reception (which is mostly used for sleeping).
Bathroom water - Initially it was good. But when we were checking out some black color water was coming out from taps. That looked exactly similar to muck in sewage drains.
