“Hotel in Queen of Hills”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2010

Holiday Inn Gem park is the most cozy restaurent in Ooty. Its is well kown for its service and mentanance. we booked a room in that hotel at a expensive rate but the cost worth for their service they provided there. The main attractin for the hotel is Ooty lake and botanical garden which is situated arouns 3KM from the hotel. Its really a cool place to be in. We really enjoyed the trip and enjoyed the service provided by the hotel to us.

Hotel gem park is an excellent place to stay during Ooty visit. The staff is very professional and co-operative. We got the travel advice and cab booking from the travel desk in the hotel which was very helpful. The hotel rooms are very clean and neat and the morning breakfast offered as part of the package was very good with lots of varieties of food. The room is very good and we have an excellent view of garden from the window of our room which was really good to see. The hotel is very famous in Ooty and any body can direct you towards the hotel. Also the hotel had enough parking space to park your car. Over all it was a nice experience to stay in this hotel for two days and enjoyed our trip to Ooty very much.

This is my first trip to Ooty with my girl. It was awesome. We had nice weather and lucky to get a good hotel as well. We got three days & one site seeing trip as a package. It includes one more day as a free combo and Morning breakfast as well.

The location of the hotel is over a little hill top. Which is great to have a nice view of the near by valley. The open glass window provides great view of the valley at day dawn.

We are surprised to see the good mist on our first day. We spend the whole day exploring the hotel. The Restaurant is having a nice view of the good laid and well maintained lawn which is a nice addition to the morning food.

After food we spent some time in the lawn and visited the pool area. It was awsome for that kind of chill weather. Yes the pool is temperature controlled warm water.

It has a dance floor, bar and gym as well but we don't find time to visit them.

One bad thing is the centralized heating in the hotel. I believe they are working on it at that time. That is what they told us. It is not at all heating our room. We asked for a separate room heater.

Overall it's a nice hotel to enjoy your trip how ever the weather may be

We stayed two night here. The hotel is situated on a peak in the Ooty hills and hence spectacular views of the village below and of the surroundings.But this places it at a few km's distance from bus stand and main market .
The Toda cafe- the main restaurant, facing panoramic tea gardens of ooctamand, is the unique of the hotel. Breakfast was a plethora of varieties and very very well prepared.Almost every possible variety, that one could imagine for breakfast was available, and was good in terms of taste also.
The rooms are excellently designed with a great interior work .
They also have a Tourist guide desk which provides a lot of information and help.
Overall, good value for money - will come back again.
One should stay in this hotel when you visit the ooty.
