Hotel Darshan Ooty
Reviewed December 19, 2012

hotel provides very good rooms especially like the ones necessary for a family. Very good hygine and cleaning of the rooms daily. The only problem or cons is that the food has a limited items on menu and cold food is served in the room. And also the breakfast items get over as they have a limited quantity. only veg items.

Room Tip: stay in this hotel and eat at some other place in town

I was looking forward to this hotel in Ooty. From the photos on their site, the executive deluxe suites had nice murals, beautiful beds and fantastic views. The Views were the only things I was left with a good impression of. The Darshan suite was filthy, beetle juice spit on walls, hair and filth on pillows, bathroom dirty and just generally run-down. Also, there was no heat in the rooms - the temperature fluctuating around 40 degrees F. So it was cold. When we complained, they only brought an extra blanket. The sitting room was just as filthy as the bathroom and bedroom. We did ask for another room and were shown several. We really gave the options a once over and decided that one was clean although a little shabby. But still no heat. The manager brought a little electric heater but it would not work. We had planned to stay 3 days in Ooty but this experience left us wanting to leave after only 1 1/2 days. I would NEVER recommend this place. It needs a total re-do and trash picked up from all around the hotel. They also burn the trash directly behind the hotel, giving the air a lovely burning trash smell. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!

Room Tip: Don't even consider

We have gone for our Honey moon at first week of july 2012 and we got a good deal as july is off season . It is near by [1 km ] from Bus stand surrounded by roads going uphill and downhill which was very much fun to take a walk at evening .Food was very good along with room service. Overall experience a good one .

I feel satisfactory with the service of Hotel Dharshan during my stay. I stayed there for 2 nights.. Except the food charges, the price is so reasonable with the offer I utilized.. I continue to choose the same hotel for next time if I get the same kind of offer..

Thanks.

I went to booty last summer.I had booked through net my stay at hotel darsan.they called us when we reached gudallur. We landed at ooty bus stand.the hotel is walkable distance from the stand.but never catch an auto and ask him to drop you at darsaan.they Will charge you really heavily.but you can ask them to drop you at the lake.the hotel is adjacent to the lake. I learned it from relay bad experience.hotel is classy ,stylish,well furnished and.has really royal rooms.they are worth for every Paise you pay.view of lake from the terrace is very beautiful,especially in the morning.the hotels also runs very good travel desk,with affordable prices.service was excellent.they even dropped us to ooty stand in early morning,in their own car ,without any additional cost.
Only thing that was not satisfactory for me was that the hotel doesn't have excellent restaurant as good as the stay.restaurant I would rate is just ok
