“A pleasant experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

I stayed here for two days during my trip to Ooty. The hotel was recommended to me by a friend who had been here earlier. The hotel is well-managed and has a courteous staff. The lake view is one of the best features of the hotel. It is conveniently located 2 kms from the bus station and 1 km from the railway station. The location is quite lively, with crowds of people visiting the lake during the day, at the same time the hotel has a calm feeling and doesn't feel too busy. The in house restaurant is a nice place, the food is good and moderately priced. The service was good and the place is well-maintained. All in all it was a pleasant stay at the hotel, highly recommended.

Very Nice Hotel with Nicer View in front !!!

This Hotel is located just opposite to the Ooty Lake. We stayed in deluxe non AC room (AC not reqd. in ooty). Rooms are very specious, clean and well maintained with all basic amenities like Sofa, LCD TV, attached bathroom, toilet kits and all. The Bed was big enough 3 adults.

Best part was the big balcony in front of the Room, which is common for all other 3 rooms on the same floor. You can have great view of Ooty Lake and cascading lash green hills surrounding lake from the balcony.

Note: Please do not go for Room Service food, it's not good.
Don't think, just go for it.

Room Tip: Choose Deluxe rooms.

I stayed at Hotel Darshan last November...we checked in late at night...when i woke up in the morning to my surprise the hotel is fight in front of the famous Ooty lake..that was one of the major attraction of Ooty...I took a 2 bedroom service apartment which was good for up to 5 people...Ooty is a must see if you are visiting India and if you love hill station...food is good everywhere but less expensive..good for muslims as its halal everywhere...places to see liek Tea garden, suside point, Konoor etc...The best part of my journey was the drive From Mysore to Ooty...specially 36 hairpin bends....

Hotel Darshan is well located, just opposite to the Ooty Lake. I mostly prefer this hotel whenever I visit Ooty. The price the Hotel is really good value for money & the staff were very nice and helpful. The rooms were clean, spacious & comfortable. The breakfast buffet was good. There was a mix selection of local and Western breakfast items. If you are simple & budget stay, not looking for anything fancy, this is the right place.

The hotel is one bouquet of surprise considering the price point and the amazing view it provides. Extremely courteous staff with a very Hospitable GM in the form of Rathod Sir. Beautiful view of the lake with good veg food. All in for visiting this hotel many more times.
