When we decided to visit Ooty last week we searched internet for a nice place to stay in Ooty ..we wanted to avoid hotels within the city.its when we came across reviews about Berry hills resort.
we booked a Superior room,from reading the reviews i had some idea about the location. i found the resort on the side of a hill just below tea museum. but could not find the way to reach up.called the friend desk ,they immediately send a person on a two wheeler down to us and he showed us the the way.
I knew that the aproch road to resort is not in good shape from the reviews..but it was more than what I expected .Nearly one kilometer of winding very narrow steep climb.but i enjoyed it as our new Duster effortlessly took us to the resort.
Its a new property maintained reasonably well. The staff were courteous, they even allowed us to change our room to one with more beautiful view. previous reviews I found many people mentioning about problem with hot water availability,which i never had.The night view from the room is spectacular with all the city lights seen from that height.Our room had 2 huge windows with glass which enabled us to enjoy the view from our bed. Only thing i want to suggest is to provide a cot for the extra person, they provided mattresses with blanket only.
they have a nice restaurant .Good food .complimentary breakfast should include more to choose from.
since the resort was clearly visible from the parking lot of boatanical garden. i would suggest a neon sign board which will make it more attractive. also there should be a sign board on the entry of approach road.
