“Feel at Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2011

The best part of the hotel is its location and the view it offers from each and every room.
The service is fast and the TODA cafe manager is really very friendly and his attention to detail towards guests is highly appreciated. My 3 yr. Baby was finding it hard to sit on a regular chair and this manager immediatly helped the small baby to sit on a high chair for kids and that too without us asking for one!!
You dont have to rome about in ooty, just sit in the room open the curtains and gaze at the breath taking view...time slips off without notice...Parking is good and the body massage session was really refreshing.
The kids room and kids play area are really good if you have fussy kids to take care of.
The 1 day tour conducted as a part of our package was very much planned and the hotel provided driver was very polite and professional.
Front office staff was good in getting our room ready within 15 mins of our arrival and also gave us couple of hours grace time to check out...
All in all a great hotel to stay by and enjoy...

I have visited Ooty in the past , however this time experience has been exotic and really liked the stay especially location and view from the Rooms is awsome. Well maintained property with good number of rooms , suggested to have flat TV's in future also need to install Wifi network in the property. Travel Desk charges are reasonable and service is prompt no need to negotiate. Compared to other Hill station Ooty is compartively cheaper with good option for sightseeing . Food at Hotel is good , for change please walk in "King's Crest" which is landmark for Dinner location during your stay.

Holiday Inn Gem Park was an excellent place to stay - Roomy, pleasant, very good staff, good food. It was a bit of the City center, but that resulted in a more serene environment. While from a stay perspective it was excellent, one may note that it is also on the costlier side.

the executive suites had broken cots, broken lamp shades, poorly maintained rooms, the bathrooms were pathetic, poorly lit parking with a bunch of workers and drivers loitering around the parking aimlessly.
Shame - less said the better

Our stay in this hotel was not a good experience. The room was dirty, dusty and the bathroom smelled bad. Tired does not sum up the hotel. For the price the rooms are terrible value and incredibly noisy - take earplugs! Staff at the front desk could not find the hotel on the map (which they provided) to show us where we were. We had to ask three times to have our room made up and when it was it was not done properly. The pool was closed for renovations which we were not told about before booking. During our stay a cleaning cart was parked outside our door the entire time filled with rubbish and dirty laundry - surely this can be located out of sight? We do not recommend this hotel.

We went for a leisure trip to Ooty and had a huge expectations on the hotel as i have already stayed at Holiday Inn during my US trips. Everything was fulfilled when we have been there to "Holiday Inn Gem Park". Excellent hotel to stay. Service was fantastic with great location. Hotel staffs were very good. Food was awesome. Pool was a closed one with great ambience. I would strongly recommend all couples to stay here when they plan for Ooty. Hip Hip Gem Park!!!
