We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon. This hotel is perfect romantic place for couple and especially if you get a room with lake view. Rooms are very clean and hygienic. Staff behavior is very good and helpful. Since hotel is exactly opposite of Ooty lake whenever you get a time, you can hang out there which is the biggest advantage.

Room Tip: Get a Suit room with lake view.

This Diwali we went to visit the famous hill station, Ooty. Hotel Darshan made our stay in this beautiful city very comfortable and enjoyable. First of all, the location of this hotel has such soothing view which enriched our experience. Just be in the room and you are in front of the heavenly view of the lake surrounded by pine trees, with a background of mountains! You can spend your days and nights just watching the landscape! It’s just beautiful, every change in light or weather adds to its beauty! Amazing! Well, the rooms are comfortable, too! And the staff is very supportive! The only thing I would like to suggest is, if they provide authentic south Indian food, it will be icing on the cake! Best wishes, Aalam and family

We stayed in Hotel Darshan in Ooty during 15th to 17th Nov 2013. The hotel is located exactly opposite to Ooty lake which provides a nice view of the lake. It is also nearby to the main bazaar & the Botanical Garden. The rooms are clean & neat. 24 hours hot water provided & room service was okay. They have an in-house restaurant which is purely veg & good for people who are looking for only veg food. Rooms rates are reasonable & rooms very spacious. The only problem we had was when we found a cockroach in our food while having dinner on the first night. We showed it to the manager & the staff & they were very apologetic for that, but that was when we decided not have food there even though we preferred to stay back in the hotel. Overall its a nice place to stay in Ooty except this cockroach in the food thing that happened to us....

We travelled Ooty in the month of November-2013 for tour purpose. Booked the Hotel after reading reviews at trip-advisor. Following are the review.

Location:- The hotel is situated at the prime location of Ooty walkable distance from Ooty lake. Actually just opposite to Ooty lake you will get a very good view of Ooty lake, but too far from main city/Mall. It is good if you have your own vehicle.

Food:- They have there own resturant but only veg. Although food are very good quality but the price is too high as compared to the veg preparation. So better to have food outside the Resturant. The varity of the food are less.

Staff/Front Desk:- The hotel staffs were humble and very helpful.

Price:- As I mentioned earlier there price is reasonable and very best as compared to the location. You will get better offer on internet booking

Cleanliness:- The rooms are clean but the bathroom cleaning rather maintenance required more attention . Very impressed with housekeeping staffs.

Must stay at Darshan when you visit Ooty

I have visited the property in the month of March 2013 for a family vacation. When i approached them for my reservation, the hotel reservation team was very rude. After a lot of mail exchange, finally i booked the rooms through Agoda at Half price of what the hotel was offering me.

During our reservation, we have requested for a lower floor side by side rooms. But during check in they said, it is not available and we had to climb up to the Fifth floor.

The rooms were clean but not maintained properly. The room phone was continuously giving beep sounds . After repeated complaints as no action was taken, i had to unplug the cable and keep the phone aside. No hot water in the morning. After first day cold shower, when we complaint at the reception, they told we have to keep the tap open for 5 mins then hot water will come. next day we tried the same. We kept the tap open for 15 mins but still no hot water.

They have only one vegetarian restaurant. if you are a non vegetarian eater the you have to look for other places.

The only thing good about the hotel is it's view of the lake....

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms have good view
