If you want to stay in a room built in 1849, visit this place. The peace , charm , heritage added with Hospitality of Taj makes it an awesome place.
Each room feels like you are living the old 1800-1900's time's feeling. My room had a fireplace. Ooty gets very cold at night and the fireplace provided enough fire to keep the heat in my room. If I had enough money, I could have stayed there forever ;).
You could be disappointed though. The rooms are very small and not very impressive in the first look. After all it is 100 + years property and the standards of hotel were different in those time.
A nice bar with English name is located in the middle. You can try some spicy rum cocktail and nice food in cold weather. The garden view is great because the garden is quite big and there are many rabbits in a cage nearby to watch doing silly stuff.
The food is quite good. Try traditional stuff rather than international.
The only point I disliked is that the bar tender was pretty inexperienced. We paid a good money for a cocktail that he did not make that well. Not his fault though, he was just a trainee. I ask Taj to employ more experienced people to make it a better place. The employees are friendly and willing to help as ever.
If you love old world, be there. Don't worry about small issues.
