Tulips Elk Hill Resort
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Stayed here for 2 nights with a large group when on an official visit to the region. The location of the resort is excellent, its near the main market and attractions at the same time it is calm and quiet. The resort, as the name suggests, is situated on a small hill.

All the rooms are facing the slope of the hill with a view of racecourse. The rooms are big and in configurations of studio, 2 BHK and 3 BHK. We were given a 3 bedroom room with a very large living area and a huge kitchen. The concern was the cleanliness of the rooms. The furniture and the carpeting is outdated and needs to be replaced immediately.

Another major concern was the hot water. All the bathrooms are fitted with individual 20 liter boilers which take around 20 minutes to heat up the water. We face a bog problem in the morning and needed to rush. The overall ambiance of the resort is good, but only for a short stay.

We didn't try the food at the hotel and therefore cannot comment on the same.

We were a family of 8 went to Ooty during last week of December 2013.
This property is new and it is neat, quite, clean, good rooms and good view. The staff are courteous and the place has a wonderful dinning and cottage type rooms. We stayed in a 4 bedroom + hall + kitchen + attached toilets type cottage. The rooms were cozy and very comfortable and they also provide room service. There is still no phone facility available inside the cottage. The rooms are fitted with water heaters. But the cable TV picture quality needs improvement. The food was ok, but they charge little high.

Room Tip: Almost all the rooms will have a beautiful view of the Ooty race course.

We stayed here in December 2013. Its a nice place but little far from the city. but not a problem if u have your own car with u. I feel when ur are on a holiday u would prefer this kind of far and quiet atmosphere.The staff was very friendly and adjusting. Food was good but as we are from Mumbai we found it normal.
The place is only 6 to 8 months old. So the rooms and bathrooms are clean. Ample parking space is there. I enquired about the train to coonoor. The staff gave his personal laptop to me for booking the ticket. It was a wonderful gesture on his behalf.
Try this place. its good
You can see the whole ooty city from this hotel. The view of the Ooty racecourse from here is excellent....

Room Tip: we selected a cottage there. They are spacious with separate dining area....
