Ooty - Fern Hill, A Sterling Holidays Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 20, 2013

I have stayed in this resort several times. We had a decent stay. But this time it was a pleasant surprise.

They have completely renovated the entire infrastructure and added many new suites.

Secondly, the staff has been very polite and displayed an attitude of high degree of hospitality. Remarkable change.

Thirdly, the breakfast and dinner spread is huge. They have a Great chef 'Suman'. He personally goes around to take feedback.

Fourthly, their Gift Shop has all genuine Ooty items with reasonable market prices.

Lastly, the resort is slightly away 3 to 4 kms from the town, since it is a huge property. So, one needs to have a vehicle.

It is worth the stay - value for money.

Browsing through the hotels in ooty on tripadvisor one won't choose a #10th ranked hotel easily. That's what I went through, but based on the attractive offer that I got and knowing about Sterling's revamp plans I decided to give this one a try. And I am so happy I tried this!
The resort is really good and the rooms are amazing after renovation. The staff is very polite and always smiling. We had our parents along with us and we booked a deluxe room, they upgraded us to rooms which were near the reception requiring less walk. So kind of them!
The best part about the resort was their food. Having stayed at many of the high-end properties around, I can say the food is one of the best I have ever had in a hotel. The buffet spread was huge, be it for breakfast or dinner. With senior citizens with us, they offered customization for food with a wide smile on their face.
The rooms are neatly done with all amenities, and suites have kitchenettes with enough utensils/cutlery.
The staff is very proactive and polite.
The only two things I would say would make it even better is a safety locker in rooms and a complete layout map of the property.
If you are opting for suites, you can opt for a suite in 15## series which are nearer to reception and restaurant.
If its value for money that matters to you, then be prepared for a pleasant surprise.
Its rated 3.5 right now on Tripadvisor, keep monitoring, I am sure the ratings would go up... :)

Room Tip: Suites near reception are a good choice

I visited the Resort in December 2012 as part of My Cycling Journey through the Nilgiris.
The resort is a bit far from the main town of ooty.
Situated in Lovedale village near Ooty it offers spectacular views.
The construction is still underway but most of the rooms are nice, cosy and spacious too.

The restaurant serves all kinds of food and is a great place to have evening tea at.

The approach road is bad and its too steep too..

Sterling Resorts, Fern Hill, Ooty is beautifully situated on top of a nice hill facing eye-catching carrot and potato fields down the slope. I visited the place along with my close relatives-15 of us and had a wonderful time. The place is a bit away from the main Ooty town but the place is breadth taking for its ambiance. The resort is elegant and an enjoyable place for people to come in a group. I presume the renovation work is complete. Cottages of different types are present at different levels of the slope, giving it a nice view. For a large family intending to do self-cooking, it is advisable to take an induction stove and an electric rice cooker. Kindly check the electrical sockets before using your personal appliances for its compatibility and advisable to take socket adaptors. Well, electricity charges would pinch the pocket. There is a big restaurant offering different cuisines but for a price. In house games and activities will keep the visitors enthralled in the evenings and do not miss the dace floor. Have a good walk down the slope and make it a point to visit the agricultural fields. It would be a lifetime experience. Check the photos in the web. Overall, a great place to stay.

They show Rs 2500 prices online, but when i actually went there to look at the room, starting rooms present are at Rs5500 not negotiable, They are also so ruse when talking to customers. Also more than 5 Kms from ooty bus stop, be ready to pay Rs 200 every time you want to travel to bus stop, main market..

Room Tip: Stay Away if u want to have good holiday

The hotel is suite fancy and large and have excellent amenities.

Was not very pleased however with the attitude of the front office staff. Of all the Sterling resorts I have been to in the South, this was the one i liked the least in terms of the warmth factor.

The resort did not feel like home... the activity center was very disconnected from the rest of the hotel and was hardly equipped with anything fun except for a carom board which you get tired of after a while.

The resort seemed quite dead and lacked the positive energy i experienced at the other Sterling resorts at Munnar and Kodaikanal.

Room Tip: Its freezing cold to walk back to the room after dinner. Look at the option of the rooms which are c...
