I stayed at Kluney Manor for 3 nights and with 4 rooms booked. The location of the hotel is undoubtedly very scenic. The rooms are very beautiful and well built. Majority of the rooms have a scenic view and has a garden in front of them. Every room is fitted with a fireplace which is not found in most of the hotels.
The hotel is approx 1 km from the bus stand and around 2.5 kms from the main market. Hotels claims to be 1 km from the market which isnt true. Its quite a well known hotel so you wont be having problems reaching to the hotel from the market via auto. But the problem is getting one to go to bus stand or market. Hence I would suggest this hotel for someone who is gonna come with their own vehicles.
The food is a very tasty but one of the major drawback is the time taken for them to deliver once the order is made. It takes approx an hour for the food to arrive which is little irritating. The buffet breakfast is pretty good and has a decent spread to choose from.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. We did have a power outage in 2 of our cottages and as they werent able to fix it, they upgraded us to suites for no extra charge. They were very prompt in getting things done.
ONE MAJOR PROBLEM which we faced is the heaters in the room. Every room is equipped with heaters but none of them are powerful enough to keep the room warm. We had gone when the winter had just started in ooty and it was pretty difficult to sleep in the night. We were however provided with extra blankets which was of little help.
I could have rated this as 5 out 5 but have to look few things like the food delivery, the heater problems and the distance from the main market. Apart from this, I would recommend this hotel to anyone who really wants peace of mind towards the evening as it is far from the city buzz.
