The hotel looks gr8 from outside with its aesthetic architecture that distinguishes it from others. But don't be fooled by its looks. The hotel is exactly the opposite from the inside. We were 4 and booked 2 budget rooms of 990/- each. First of all they didn't give any receipt or bill for this booking. After entering the rooms we found that the cot is sagging in the center. After having a look beneath it we found that the cot is broken (Room# 204).
Out of 6 or 8 lights, 5 lights were not functioning in either of the rooms. Mattress and blankets smell like rat's waste. TV is of 1990s model and only one button in the remote works that is the channel-up button.
In such chilling degrees where other hotels have hot water facility 24x7 Khems has it available only 7AM - 10AM. So if you have to use the washroom at night then be prepared to get your hands, face and everything else freezed (you know what I mean) with the icy-cold water.
There is only one member of the restaurant. He himself is the waiter, cook, cleaner. Food is pathetic and takes 30min - 45min to get served on your table.
On the same street you will find hotels far better in quality and service in as much as 600/- per day.
Also the driver of the cab that we booked taunted us as to why did we book that hotel when there are so many better hotels in Ooty.
So I advise you not to even think of staying in this hotel ever.
This is a collective review of all the four members of my family.
