“Cozy & Sweet experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2010

We had booked the hotel 2 weeks in advance. We had booked the lower room with the private garden. The location was nice since its a little distance from Caring cross which is a busy market area. The hotel is located right opposite to King's Cliff. Upon our arrival the room was not ready and we had to wait for half an hour which was very annoying (since we had called in earlier before arrival) however, it was worth the wait, the room was clean and well done. My fav's being the LCD, bathtub and the cozy bed. The garden was well maintained. The floor had wood panelling, another of my fav.

However, the service can be improved a little bit, in the sense it could be much faster than it is. This hotel lacks any elevator (lift), so be prepared for a lot of climbing. Hot water is hot only during the morning hours. Othertimes its only warm. So, difficult to spend more time in the bathtub. We only had one lunch there (rice, egg curry & sandwich). Egg curry was tasty, however the sandwich leaves much to be desired. Overall, a very pleasant and cozy room with the perfect location.

It was the first trip to OOTY.I booked the hotel willow hill from bangalore.I was there for 3 days from 22nd Dec 09 to 24th Dec 09.hotel check in time was 12’o clock.But I reached at OOTY in the

morning around 5.30.They gave me a room for refreshment ,with out any charge.That was the good thing I found there.It Was a very nice hotel for staying there.I was there for my honeymoon. I was staying in the best room of that hotel which was having private garden.It was a good experience. The hotel guys are very good, Azhar was one of them. His service was very good.I will definitely stay there , if I will go once again.

Things I didn’t Like there:- 1.Only Tamil Channels in the TV,This is disgusting.2. For complementary break fast ,you have to go to the resturant.3. Very much noise near the resturant kitchen.4.For Hot water ,you have to waste 1 bucket of water.5. Food is OK.Things I like Most:- 1. Hotel location is great. Outside the ooty town,but 2 km from Bus stand.2. Nice Staff.3.Rooms are good.

>> Hotel employees are freindly and they understand the needs. I reached on 27 Dec to this hotel and find the view is nice. If you have booked the upper floor rooms which is costly one have a nice view. They have their own car parking area and small gardens which is quite goood. Food court view is nice where you can have full landscape and nature beauty.

>> Food are kind of okey. We visited coonor and they arranged good driver and cab but was bit costly.

really nice position in the hill above Ooty town, easy to walk to bus and train station. Good walking from Hotel, tea plantations and local villages. Let down by poor restaurant.
