“Comfortable home stay”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

We stayed at Elk Hill-Ooty for 2 nights. First we thought that we may not get comfortable stay since it was a deal from make my trip (pay 1N and stay 2N). But we didn't feel anything like that and everything was provided in good manner. Staff are smiling face and friendly. The complementary breakfast was actually huge and delicious (continental, south and north Indian breakfast). They are giving very good holiday activities and indoor games too. Room service was in its best and quick. So we had comfortable weekend and enjoyed our stay. Just relaxed from my routine work.

The best times of the Sterling Elk Hill in Ooty are gone. Even the welcome drink and the music in the lobby can´t hide the fact that the rooms are a bit rundown and the staff is not very attentive. But - at least - the views to Ooty are nice, everything is clean and it was more or less quiet.
