Awesome place, located 12kms before Ooty in Kalhatty ghat. Very well maintained place.
Pros: Exellent location, nice views, clean room, helpfull and friendly staff, nice sit-outs and lawn.
Cons: Room freshner was too strong, Food was average (Had a stomach upset the next day, However breakfast was very good), Positioning of TV was not good (in delux room), there was no room heater/ fireplace/ campfire.

We were looking for a 3 day outing to beat the Bangalore May Summer heat and we narrowed it to Ooty mostly because we had been planning to go to Ooty with this group of friends since a few years now and it hadn’t happened because of various reasons! :)
But knowing how commercialized and crowded Ooty town is, we wanted to stay somewhere slightly off Ooty yet close enough to get the real feel of the beautiful Nilgiri mountain area and this place fit right in!

Location:
- If you’re going from Bangalore via Masinagudi, it is after the hairpin bend numbered 9/36 and if you’re coming from Ooty, it is after 8/36.

Views:
- True to its name, the rooms in this place open up to the beautiful green hills and valley with the vegetable farms right in front and the mist keeps playing hide and seek throughout the day!

Rooms:
- Clean, spacious, well maintained and no problems with hot water.
- Recommend the Queen Suite for a group/family of 4-5 and a King Suite for a group/family of 6-7.
- The Suite’s have a TV in every room.
- Also a mention that there is free Wifi in this place (although I did not use it as I wanted to stay away from other distractions for atleast a couple of days! :) )

Staff:
- The owner, Mr.Ravi, is there for anything you need including planning your trip in the area or just to have a conversation and share each other’s experiences!
- The Manager, Mr.Jolly, is warm and friendly and keeps things around running smoothly.
- We had very less interaction with the rest of the staff but no real complaints here.

Food:
- The food was fresh and tasted really good. Although we did feel that the quantity of starters/snacks could have been a little more for the price of the items but still no points deducted for this.. :)
- Recommend eating at the restaurant area on the top floor if you wish the food to be hot. Because of the cool weather it can get cold fast when ordered in the rooms.

Others:
- If you come along with a driver, they are provided with free food and accommodation.
- We were unlucky not to have the bonfire on both nights as it has rained a bit and the fire wood had got wet as we understand. We also noticed a music system in the lawn/garden area.
- We were sorry to hear that their little pug had died just a couple of days back as a jeep had run over it when it was playing around! :(

Trek:
- You must do the early morning trek from this place (charged extra). You’ll be going in a jeep to one of the hills in front and trek over quite a few hills which belong to the Mudhumalai Forest area. It is a beautiful trek with lots of greenery, flowering plants and small Jamun (Jambul) fruits in the right season! We did spot a few wild animals like Bisons and an Elephant.
Just being on the top of the hills with the clouds floating around you was an amazing feeling! Thanks again to the trek guide for taking us in that route!

We did not visit any of the usual crowded tourist places in Ooty but went to places like Avalanche, Emerald and Coonoor which were absolutely beautiful inspite of intermittent rains already!

We were a group of 5 people who had booked the King suite (We were originally 6 but one dropped out at the very last minute. The Queen Suite would have probably been enough had we known earlier). This place is like a mix of a hotel, resort and a homestay and we were definitely satisfied at the end of it. Mr.Ravi and team, please keep up the same good passionate work you're doing with this place!
I wish and recommend visiting the place just after the rainy season to enjoy the beauty of the Nilgiri hills and the lakes at its best!

Room Tip: Recommend the Queen Suite for a group/family of 4-5 and a King Suite for a group/family of 6-7.

We are pleased to b in Mount & Mist @ Ooty for our vacations.

The place is v.beautiful surrounded with agricultural land , trees & plants around. It has a v.cool atmosphere, a bit away from city but really nice. We had our dinner only 1 nite, but now I miss it, that I didn't take food daily there..:-(
Food over there is v.nice & best is it gives u taste of ur home.:-)
Just a suggesstion for breakfast that you must include some more varieties in it apart from break butter toast & some south indian dish.

The management over there is also v.cooperative & understanding.

Overall we enjoyed the place.

We were glad to b there.

keep up the good work!! All the best for future:-)

Aditi Gupta

We had reasonably good stay at Mount N Mist where we stayed for 4 nights during May last week.
But given that it was given high ratings by many travellers, i was expecting more.
We have travelled as family with 2 kids.
Best part of hotel is nice hilly view it offers. In mornings you can see great view.
Worst part for us going up and down the mountains for 12KM every day when we go to Ooty and come back.
For folks with motion sickness, this might make things worse because you travel with ghat road with all lot of hair pin bends both in morning and evening.
Mr Jolly is very nice man with great customer service attitude. But i dont find waiters and other staff express same attitude. One of waiters was even rude to us few times.

Positives:

1. Nice view from hotel room
2. Very friendly manager : Jolly. Did not interact with Mr. Ravi that much
3. Nice flower garden.
4. Had nice dog which loved kids. Unfortunately it died in accident at end of our trip.
My kids still talk about that dog "Tony" after 10 days.


Cons:
1. Far from Ooty : 12KM. In peak traffic, will take over 30-45 minutes (especially in May)
2. Have to travel all the way down from mountain. My wife and kids have motion sickness.
it impacted them every tiem we had to go upto Ooty and come down. No issue for my self with going up and down.
3. Not arranged drinking water after our arrival.
4. Food was mostly good but most times spicier than we like even after ordering no spicy food.
Once chapathis were served after they became hard.
5. Dont stay in room direclty below kitchen. Noise will start at 6am in morning.

Room Tip: If you go with family, take queen suite. Also if you take room with double bed, dont take room direc...
