One of those instances where i chose the hotel based on ratings I saw at Trip Advisor (TA) and the hotel turned out to be far far different from what I anticipated. Frankly, my family felt that this was the worst hotel they had ever stayed in.
When I booked this, the hotel was rated amongst the top 10 as per TA, When we saw it, we wondered if it was among the top 10 or bottom 10! The hotel, while in the center of the city, was in a very narrow road and rather difficult to access. While the hotel claims there is sufficient parking for cars, that is a joke! Less than 3 cars can park in their premises - rest are to park on the road.
I had booked one of the better category rooms (as per the hotel ads) but the room was pathetic - dirty, small, smelly, stained curtains etc. We immediately asked for a change of room and were shown one of the newly renovated rooms but, of course, were asked to pay more! My guess - a money-making scheme.
Other than a restaurant, there is nothing else in the hotel - no gym, pool etc. The restaurant was like the rooms - old and worn. Service was surprisingly fast though! BF has limited choices.
My recommendation - you can find plenty of better hotels in Ooty.
