Sterling Ooty Fern Hill
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 18, 2013

If you are in search for a property which is quiet, serene, blends with the nature, then this is the place you should head for, the major plus point of this resort is its amazing location, which is tucked in a cool little valley in fern hill which is little away from the hustle and bustle of the hectic commercial activity of Ooty. Once you are in the resort you are in a new world far from pollution, which is ideal for long walks and nature treks.
i had availed of their studio cottage which was good enough for a family of three, which had all the luxuries; tucked in this small little cottage, no complaints on the interiors of the unit, we really loved it.
The resort also has an in house restaurant which is average, they serve food in the buffet style, the spread during the meal time is very elaborate which is a combination of vegetarian and non vegetarian.
This resort also houses an in house spa, where you can avail the services of various types of massages, which is quite ok.
It also has a good activity area which can keep the little ones occupied with various games.
In all i thoroughly enjoyed my full one week of stay in this resort with my wife and son, which was a welcome break and thanks to the staff of Sterling resort who made this possible, Keep up the same Tempo.

Room Tip: Ask for their independent cottages which provides full privacy for the family.

Excellence experience. The location while not easily accessible, once in was a great place to be. The staff was really extraordinary which includes room service (who despite the hectic tourism still did more than expected with no qualms). The kitchen and food was very good and variety was provided to tourist. The staff at restaurant was once again exception in their behaviour. Their attitude towards children was ver warm and friendly. While the place was under renovation, nevertheless, there were quite some open place for children to play around.
Family loved this place a lot.

Room Tip: No swiming pool or fitness entre around.

I visited this property on 30th December, 2012 along with Family.. Having traveled from Sterling - Kodai by the Lake our expectations were too high but .... Check in process was too slow - we had to wait for 2 hours. We were allotted rooms at a very remote place in spite of having enough inventory.. I fail to understand with what intention did that Front Desk Executive allotted us that room. Rooms are too small but nicely kept. Food was good but very limited choice. 31st Evening was bad as they dint offer Alla Card just 2 Veg items were offered and pricing was multiplied by 3 times. Wonderful celebrations on 31st Night. Sterling team was good. Property location is very good its actually on the Hill and the road which takes you to the resort is very narrow / creepy. Its an old property of sterling huge premises.

Room Tip: Ask for cottages near by reception

I was with my family at Fern Hills last week of April and this was our first experience with Sterling Group.It was one of the best ever stays and the place was so silent and complete feeling of relaxation.

We were welcomed with a drink in the reception and got a two bed room studio.The resort is well maintained with beautiful gardens and lawns.

Rooms were spacious, clean and well maintained.Food was very tasty and service was very fast.

Overall our stay for two nights was awesome experience at Fern hills.

I stayed at Fern Hill with my family recently in the month of May 2013. What made our trip to the Nilagiri District so memorable was no. 1 the Resort (which is in Ooty), no. 2 the drive around Coonoor & Wellington and everything in between; and no. 3 the drive back home via Pykhara Lake. Very often you find a great looking hotel or a resort but sadly very bad service, disinterested staff and F&B options. Not so at Fern Hill. It's been an all-round magnificent experience - well done, spacious rooms, luscious green environment, genuinely friendly staff offering great service and good food, albeit quiet costly which is quite understandable. It may sound clichéd but it was our 'home away from home'. Go there!

Room Tip: All rooms offer great views and sense of space. Ask for a room in the main resort building. Alternat...

I went to Ooty after a long time for a holiday during first week of May2013. Sterling Fern hill is one of the best hotel/resort with a very beautiful view of the city, good place to relax. The service was good and the staff were courteous. I loved the food, it was good and with variety like any good four or five star restaurant. They have activities planned for each day so that the guests can participate and have some fun. Overall an amazing five day stay in Ooty and definitely would like to thank Sterling Fern hill to make my stay memorable.
Thanks,
Vibha.
