“The best place to stay in OOTY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

After a terrible stay for a day in Sherlock i came back to Savoy and checked in for a day They exceeded all my expectations on food, hospitality, service, individual care. If you are looking full value for your money i don't think no one can offer more than TAJ SAVOY. My Kids, Friend all had a great stay. To round it up my wife forgot her sandals in the room and the same was later send by courier to my home address . Cant ask for more, don't read or get carried away by any reviews, just go to savoy and enjoy your holiday.

We stayed here during the 1st week of May 2013 and it was an enjoyable experience. The hotel is located not too far away from town centre (2 km). The service at the hotel was very good and the staff was very courteous. I wish they had more amenities to engage the smaller kids as the kids play room was under renovation when we were there. It would be advisable to take up a package with food (buffet) included as the room service is quite expensive. I wish the room size was a little more bigger for my comfort though.

I was at the Savoy Hotel Ooty last week for 3 nights with family. Stayed in a Superior Garden View Room. I have nostalgic memories of this hotel as I had stayed there as a kid 25 years back and now I was there again with my kids!! Starting with the Room, it's very spacious with a small living area with a 2 seater sofa spacious bedroom then the dressing room and finally the bath. Compared to the size of the room the bathroom is small but well equipped with a seperate shower area. The room is a classic design with wooden flooring, it has a fire place which the staff light it up for you on request. The rooms are comfortable for a family with 2 small kids. It's also equipped with all creature comforts. Best part of the room is that it opens out to a beautiful garden. It's not private but shared with 3 other rooms. Nevertheless it is very nice with chairs and table placed under an umbrella as it rains often in Ooty. It's the best place to relax in the evening. The superior rooms are not exactly a cottage but quiet similar to a cottage. Those who love heritage style living then the Savoy is the place to stay. There are various swings for the kids in the property. A horse man is there inside the property for the kids to enjoy the horse ride. Then there are activity games conducted in the evening at the garden or the lounge depending on the weather conditions. They also have a Bonfire in the garden after sunset.

Our package included all 3 meals served as buffet in their only restaurant the Dining Room. I have stayed at Taj properties in Kerala, the food served there is sumptuous but I cannot say the same for the food that's served at the Savoy Hotel. I wasn't very happy with the spread as it was not that great. You can just fill your stomach but cannot relish the food as its basic. They need to improve on this aspect if they are offering only full board packages during peak season time. Ooty has many other options around town to have food but as I had already paid a substantial amount for the full board package at the Savoy I was forced to have all the meals here. Though I should make a special mention to the restaurant staff as they were very obliging in getting few dishes prepared specially for the kids like pizza pasta and cheese garlic bread at no extra cost. These extra dishes were the saving grace! I suggest while booking to insist for the room with breakfast included package and not full board.

For a relaxing stay in a quiet atmosphere sourrounded by nature and British style cottage living backed by the excellent Taj hospitality Savoy Hotel is the place to go as no other place in Ooty or South India will offer this luxury.

We stayed in taj savoy and really had a great time.Ofcourse it was also due to the lovely 2 bedroom cottage we had.We were there for about 3 nights.The good parts were also hotel layout,food,games and bonfire at night,flowers,spa and the staff! Our kids had lots to do- play area,cycling,rabbits,table tennis etc.Our cottage had a private lawn and overlooking the valley so morning teas were just awesome.Our recommendation stay here if you want to just relax!

We travelled to Ooty as a family of 5 including a couple, a senior citizen and 3 year old twins. We decided to break journey for a day at Taj Savoy Ooty en route to Destiny farmstay, and had booked an executive suite, but got upgraded to a double bedroom suite. We got a Super comfy lawn facing cottage with carpeted floors, spacious, well appointed rooms with modern comforts, the old world charm intact..[ If there is anything that needs to be improved, it is the shower area in the bathroom of the suite we were in- (No.308).. the shower curtain is just incapable of keeping the floor of the rest of the bathroom dry.. a proper fixed shower enclosure of glass/ acrylic would do the job nicely and make this particular suite perfect in every way]

We decided against visiting the crowded tourist attractions in peak season, since we had already seen them during our earlier visits to Ooty and the kids wouldn't be interested in them anyway.. We spent the afternoon and evening at the hotel itself, relaxing on its lawns, playing some badminton, cycling around, having pony rides for the kids, enjoying the superb weather, the cool clean fresh mountain air

The hotel's dining hall offers a great multi cuisine buffet spread for all meals, with 5 star quality food and hot hot soft phulkas too..
The hotel has good recreational activities for all age groups and a bonfire at night
The highlight of it all- the staff---from booking to check-in to dining to housekeeping to recreation to check-out--- a big thumbs up to the entire team for making our stay at this wonderful property truly relaxing, fun filled and memorable.. We look forward to another visit to Ooty and will surely be staying at Taj Savoy when we come there next time

We stayed @ Savoy for 3 nights starting April 8th 2013. It was an amazing experience over and above what we expected from Taj brand. Right from the checkin right upto checkout every aspect of our stay was managed very professionally by the staff. The rooms are nice with fireplace that they set up as requested. Food was amazing with lot of variety. Of course, the best experience was created by the people. I can say that every member of the staff knew exactly what he is supposed to do to make the guests' stay comfortable and every member of the staff was willing to do more than that.
The only issue I faced was to get my daughter go out of "her" room for site-seeing. But that's okay...

Revisited Taj after 25 years, since our honeymoon in 1988. Found the famous Taj hospitality and staff same as before - and the place as well. Not much modernization but same Raj period's charm in the rooms. Got the same superior room # 311. Excellent food and of course ambience.

Do not expect sleek amenities nor 7 star like chic furnishing. This is a classic Raj place but modernized enough to enjoy all new technologies. Fun games in the evenings are very good to know your fellow guests. Bars and Restaurant can be upgraded. Keen Servicing makes up for any lack of ultra mod, or taken for granted 5 star facilities.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and am planning already for the next trip there.

Cheers

Room Tip: 311, 312 or others in that lane by the main gate.
