i happened to stay @ kluney manor from September 23-25, 2012 at Rustic Cottage
rustic cottage are at 2 locations..one on a bit higher side and one having front face to ooty city( even lake is visible) My room were 30-31-32 (3 rooms)
First Location of Hotel: its not at all away from main city, and 100% sure that it is not at a secluded place. its just about 2 kms from bus stand. Ya we had a vehicle on hire so distance was never an issue. what we wanted was a break from city life and stay at a hotel with big lawns , kids playing area, good view. all were there. There was a tea stall just next to hotel gate. Awesome tea
Hotel Food: i happened to eat breakfast for 3 days. The food was good. few dishes were very good. few were average. since the food was good, we ate dinner for 2 nights too, only let down was they have one day tandoor On and other day Tawa On.. so u cannot eat Naan, Lachha etc on both days. the cost was ok for each dish. all dishes were around 100rs per plate, same as we pay at any normal restaurant at Delhi. Malai Kofta, Aloo Gobhi masala and Chef special were too good
Room facilities.: as shown in some pics, the TV is not CRT but LCD having decent no. of north indian channels too.
Room geyser might be an issue. since after 1.5 bucket, you will have to wait. since i prefer bath at evening , for us it was not an issue. Rooms were provided with Blower, which is required at night. The Fireplace is not a big deal since blower is there, but u want to use it it costs 100 rs
Internet facilities are also available, but not wifi. a desktop PC is there which can be used.
Overall My stay was good
And bottom-line... its a Very Good 3 star Hotel or almost a 4 star hotel. few more improvements and definitely of 4 star grade
