“Good value for money”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Pros: Inexpensive hotel. Decent food at the restaurant. Decent service. Large rooms. Newly done bathrooms are neat and clean. Walking distance from Botanical gardens. Lots of shops around.

Cons: No views from balcony. One of the rooms initially felt a bit smelly. Need to pest the guys for tea or coffee beyond usual hours.

Overall: I booked pretty late and most of the hotels were full. I was apprehensive about this one as it was one of the cheapest but I am happy with the hotel mainly because I didn't expect too much at that price. But if you are planning to spent lot of time at the hotel then there's little to do here.

The hotel rooms are not clean ,not worth paying for ,the blankets and rooms were not clean ,only advantage is that it is close to the botanical park.Better to pay little bit extra and try booking other hotels.the walls of the room were water soaked

We visited Ooty during the off season when it had just started raining so we got the suites for quite less. The rooms are tidy and the bathrooms are OK. The locations isn't exactly worth mentioning, it is in the central area with not much of a view. We spent only the night in the hotel so it was enough for us.

Hotel is located near Botanical garden. Can be reached easily from charring cross which is the main commercial location. Room rates are cheap. We visited in christmas holidays. Rent was only 750 per night.Booked online from makemytrip. we stayed for 2 nights. Room service is bad. Restaurant is also not upto the mark. However they charge you handsome amount for food items.Bathrooms are also dirty. Nobody cared for housekeeping till we reminded them. Lift is also malfunction. I suggest not to expect much in this cheap rent from vinayaga inn.

Room Tip: Check for bathroom fittings. It should not be closed to lift as "plz close the door" will...

Rooms are big but hotel needs to be more clean and service needs to be improved.But the hotel is next to vinayaga inn which is a good thing,Hotel check out time was very strict that has to be flexible.

Hotel property was good and rooms space was also very good. but rooms was not so cleared, hotel staff was not properly dressed. There is a lift but condition of that was very pathetic.

Over-all I would say value to money is okay.
