“Great Hotel...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2007

This really is one of the finest hotels in India. We have stayed with our daughter twice and intend to go again with our second daughter!!. The standard rooms are quite spacious and give good value for money. The packages are the best way to stay there as they offer superb value for money. Food is good and the room service efficient. Pool is temperature controlled and quite big.
All in all an ideal Hotel to holiday with the family again and again.

I have been holidaying in Ooty for the past 3 consecutive years.I visit in April and in October. Apart from the weather in Ooty , Holiday Inn Gem Park is the other reason to look forward to the Ooty trip.
I holiday there with my two teenagers and a 7 year old.This amazing hotel has all kinds of recreational activities to keep the kids amused and the parents to them selves.At the same time we do fun things together , like swimming, watching movies,. My husband is a gym enthusiast and has a great time at the well equipped gym.The teenagers often go to the discotheque.As for me just 'being' there is a therapy.I am mostly found lounging on a sette at the sit out near the huge windows , reading , sipping coffee or just looking out at the rolling hills.
Have tried out their suites, the deluxe and once even the standard room.Service is very efficient and gracious.The staff respond quickly to any requests, the travel desk too is very well informed and co operative.
The food is certainly worth mentioning. Their chinese restaurant has a great ambience and the food is awesome.The toda cafe has a beautiful view of the hillside, and serves up snacks and meals throughout the day.Quick service.
The prices are reasonable.They have value for money packages including breakfast .Its great for people who like sight seeing .A big breakfast and you are ready to take on short trips in & around Ooty.
The only draw back is that you need a vehicle to get to the hotel if you are not a walking enthusiast. But we found quaint roads leading to the main street and its quite a good exercise to walk up & down.The markets can easily be accessed by these side roads.
All in all a most pleasurable experience , which takes us back again & again

  • Liked — The comforts, Food & View
  • Tips/Secrets — Look for the small roads to explore the place and to get to the main town centre.
