Great place but i think its on its way down mostly due to the attitude of some of the staff..the front office staffs attitude was a joke and he needs to learn how to wear his tie !! .the service levels needs to be enhanced way more for this beautiful property to shine again.

I visited Ooty again for my second anniversary and stayed in Willow Hill. It is a little far off from the town center and the railway station, but it is a beautiful place to stay in. It has a wonderful restaurant that serves all types of dishes. The front office is friendly, but they charge a little extra for the cab services as compared to others probably because of the distance from the town.

Only issue with this hotel is that if you take the room with private garden, then you might feel a little scared about your security as the door is just a glass one and continuation of the garden is just a valley. This is my personal feeling though.

Except this one, it is a beautiful hotel to stay in...

Stayed here for one night whilst attending our friends' wedding. The rooms are spacious and looks like a ski chalet due to its wood pannelling. The views are great on the upper floors. Our room was on the lower floor and had its own small, charming private garden with chairs for us to enjoy the experience. It was comfortable and nice touch, having a bath, but beware, the water is rather brown! We did not eat here so cannot comment about the meals.

I stayed here while I went to ooty for honeymoon. I loved the view I got from the hotel room the most. A good hotel to stay since it gives a good chance to enjoy the nature without much effort to go out. The food tastes really good, but takes a while for preparation. The staff were very helpful. Overall a good place to be if you want a evergreen memory of the stay.

An Excellent Hotel. With an gentle and helpful staff. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The decor was done in wood and hence gave a rustic feel. There was a small restaurant catering mostly to the inhouse guests. There is a choice of continental or indian breakfast, but dinner and lunch is Indian. The food is delicious well and appeals to our indian tastes. The children too had a great time in the small garden and play area developed on the slopes. The view from all the rooms are spectacular. All in all a great place to stay and refresh yourself away from the grit and hustle bustle of city life.
