We were there in hotel for little more than 2 days. It was a pleasant experience. The room was cleaned, service was good & the location is excellent. The hotel decoration was not so good. Also the hotel is a old hotel and the restaurant is fully veg. Other than that it was a good experience.

Average room with dirty smell, no proper ventilation, rusted cloth hangers, restaurant management is very poor, all chairs and tables provided were age-old, smelling bad, paint was scaling off the walls of restaurant as well as in rooms.it difficult to sit and have lunch/dinner at this restaurant,food served was also of average quality but heavily priced,too much delay in service,better avoid this hotel,there are other best hotels at lesser price than this worst hotel at ooty.No value for money.

for us it was really a memorable stay, nice location with a view of Ooty lake through window.. i cant boast about each and every room, but we were lucky to book a nice room in top floor, which offers good privacy and best view of the lake. Food was really good, management and reception people are really nice and helpful, room service is okay... Hot water is 24 hrs available....
we would love to go back again provided we ll get a room of our choice...
overall we liked the hotel and its people.

We checked-in on 11th October 2013. We took a super deluxe room but room was OK kind of thing (different from photos on website). Food was not good. Got our food order wrong twice. They bring every order almost after 1 hours and that is after I made 3-4 calls. I ordered milk for my son which they took 70 minutes. We also booked Sight Seeing Tour from hotel but Diriver skipped Dodabetta (he said Dodabetta is closed and Telescope House is no more in existence). We complaint to Reception. It was hotel's responsibility because arrangements were made by them but they did not looked sorry or made any other arrangement for Dodabetta. When I made a complaint to GM Mr.Rathore, he said we will be charged again if we want to go Dodabetta. I had totally disappointing experience. Though we booked room for 4 nights and advance payment was made by us, we checked-out on 14th October 2013 morning. When we request the Reception for one day's tariff refund they simply refused. I am not sure how this hotel is getting good ranking from Trip Advisor.

First time visited to Ooty. It could not have been better for us without Hotel Darshan. Nice location, not much far from the city bus station. Service is, you are not going to complaint about it! very helpful people around. Strongly recommends to someone who needs great stay at a place like Ooty. Thank You. :-)

Room Tip: would recommend Darshan Mini-suite for couples!
