Was at Ooty to attend the school day at Lawrence school. Booked it because on Tripadvisor the location was shown as being on Onslow road adjoining Hobart Road that's close to Lawrence School Lovedale. That turned out to be wrong.
Took a lot of time to locate the place... Google maps showed the address correctly and the owners son came down to pick us up when we reached close by.
The room is a typical home stay. Hardly a B&B.
It's located in a congested locality on Elk Road. It's in fact the owners residence as well. Room is as shown in the gallery. However is badly maintained.
There's no service. One has to plan ahead and ask for service which could perhaps be met. They were unable to arrange an early breakfast for us.
The cleaning was not upto any passable standard. Same is the case with the toilet. As all kind of muck lies around. One window opens onto Elk Road which is just 3 ft away. Forget sound sleep... You will be woken up every time any vehicle passes by! The other window opens into a neighboring site... Which is full of garbage.
The toilet is in bad shape. Not been cleaned. Leaking and stinks.
Owners should have been forthright and called their place as Home Stay rather than a B&B.
People beware many of the fancy sounding cottages are similar and are in the neighborhood.
I would not stay in this or similar place again.
