3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Overall the staying in this hotel was good.value for money.Ooty is a place to roam around so doesn't matter where do you stay.

The hotel is a budget hotel so don't expect more from them.However they can improve the services like pantry,restaurant.

Its a very good place to stay. The rates are low when compared to others. The customer service is excellent. I stayed with my family for 2 days.Thanks to Mr.Manjunath and Mr.Solomon for their excellent customer service. There is no fan or ac but it doesnt matter because of the climate. Overall my family really enjoyed staying in this cottage.

I am writing this review after long delay just to give information to people. I haven't stayed anywhere else in ooty so cant compare it with other similarly priced properties. Stayed here with friends (all stags) only because we landed there without prior booking and were on tight budget.

Now, about the place. This is strictly budget place. Not recommended for a comfortable/Family stay. Hot water was not available for bath even in chilling cold. The reason given was they don't run the boiler in "off season". No eateries nearby. Luckily we had own transport so we could go out for meals.

If you do book, bargain hard because we got a good discount while booking.

Just a good place to stay at. Not at all exceptional. Service seem fine. Locations is not as much comfortable. No economical diners nearby. No complimentary break tea here. Bed is not as good quality as it constantly cast itching on my body.

Rest all is good...

we had booked delux rooms from cleartrip. when we arrived there we found the rooms shabby and asked to change the rooms. they showed us another room which was relatively better but charged Rs. 300 extra. the rooms are bad and the attitude of the staff is horrible.. probably the pictures shown in their advertisement were taken when it was built. better options are available for similar price.
