The view from the hotel was spectacular, both morning and evening. The accommodation was very comfortable with spacious and well decorated rooms. Only thing that I didn't like was the floor carpet which was damaged at some areas. Other than that the breakfast was fabulous. The buffet breakfast with so many options was thoroughly enjoyable. The staff were so warm and hospitable and were always trying to find out what we need for our comfort. We would love to stay there again when we visit India next time.

We came to Toda cafe-their chinese restaurant , for lunch,at around 2:30pm,the order taker was very friendly and he was exceptional with the children.He served with a smile.
This one person changed the entire ambience and experience at this restaurant.I guess he's a true asset to this restaurant.
Food taste was nice.Food was serviced fast.
The lawn outside the restaurant has a good valley view.

Stayed at Gem Park last weekend. Pretty much decent. But they could improvise on their housekeeping and the grooming if their waiters. Food was good though oily. Room service was quick. But their housekeeping team are bit slow in responding. But if you minus all this, the view from the rooms are fabulous.

Booked this hotel for a vacation along with my family.
Seamless booking. Thanks to Subramani for the support.
The property is a bit dated but good. Renovation is underway and should be done by next season. Excellent staff (Housekeeping, Toda Cafe, Front Office). Good garden and excellent swimming pool which is temperature controlled over week ends. Excellent Breakfast Buffet with variety of pasteries, fruits and south / north indian dishes. Good parking space.
The lobby is a nice place to relax during the evenings with a fire place and a musician playing the piano....
Easy access to local joints, petrol bunks, etc...
Good view of the country side from the room.....Happened to visit one of the Suites (Luxury Suites) which is well furnished and good...
Overall a very nice place to stay when in Ooty...

Visited this place for a weekend getaway. The property is a bit dated but ok. The view from the rooms is great and the lawns are awesome, you can sit and enjoy a coffee with the view of the valley.

Its the food in the toda cafe that disappointed us the most. Not good at all neither dinner nor the breakfast we had. The place is a bit away and uphill from the market so its difficult to find good food outside in the evening.

Excellent hotel with well furnished rooms with all modern comforts and amenities one expects in a 3 star hotel. Great location in the heart of the town from where all sight seeing spots are easily accessible. Large parking area and the only hotel in Ooty with a swimming pool - indoor but heated only on Saturdays and perhaps usable only in the summer months. Excellent food in the restaurant. The old fire place in the lobby and the dinner time live music is a must do for music lovers. The pianist is as good at western music of the 70s and 80s - Cliff Richard, Bachelor Boy, etc - as he is with modern movie themes - Titanic - or just about anything. Plays request too. Outstanding.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors offer better views. Avoid ground floor rooms.

We reached at an odd hour in late afternoon due to delayed flight at Coimbatore yet we were served excellent lunch by a couple of staff members found resting in the vicinity. The rooms have great view & friendly staff makes the stay comfortable. It is conveniently located. The thermal swimming pool is indeed amazing. It was least expected to see such a beautiful indoor pool since I may have missed out on this detail during my search study for selecting a hotel for staying.

Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, try selecting one in the upper floors.
