“Good hotel with good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

We stayed in this hotel for 3 days during August 2014. The hotel is located next to the Ooty lake. The rooms are good. The service was excellent. Room service was also prompt. The staff were courteous and helpful. There is ample parking space available for car parking. Overall it was a great experience.

I came across this via travelguru, and they gave me a good price to stay over a busy weekend in Ooty. And I did not regret my decision. As a solo traveler and a girl this is completely safe. The whole place is well-surrounded by a campus with a security guard who monitors all going ins and outs. The idea of independent cottages suited me very well. It gave me a mild resemblance of privacy, while at the same time a reassurance that there are people nearby. The view is excellent and literally panoramic. The hotel staff at the reception are extremely helpful. The one thing that I didn't like about the hotel was the particular check-in and check-out times. I reached Ooty right at 6.30 on the dot by bus, and it vexed me extremely that I couldn't check in before 1 PM. Because of the odd check-out timing of 11 AM, I had to pay extra.

Excellent basic amenities provided. A basic warning sheet is provided that clearly tells you that if you wish for hot food to be served, then better go to the hotel restaurant. Because of the spread of all cottages, room service will be delayed for a minimum of 45 minutes, and might not be hot as expected. They can improve a bit on that department. The chilly weather of Ooty barely registers except when you are washing your hands in cold water. The Television set has some problem though. Some is a mild understatement. It was horrible. I had a lot of time to kill towards the end of my journey right before I checked out, and the TV set didn't make it easier for me to pass my time. A wide selection of tour packages are available if you want to go by the hotel choice. A separate itinerary is well accommodated by the hotel if you do not have your own vehicle. They have separate fare chart for autos, so the fear of being cheated is not going to be there.
In short, I would recommend it as a place of stay - for families, a group trip, a solo trip.

We were in fuss if we should be booking in this hotel after reading some of the reviews on this hotel. we were there duing the independence week end this year. It changed our opinion. We were happy that we took right decision. This is located very close to the bazar, yet quite far away from city crowd. It is peaceful, away from city noises. The property is maintained well, the rooms were neat and well organised. I understand there are few rooms under renovation. Kindly check your room before entering. The food is not very good, but that prompts you to go to the bazaar to explore.Moreover the charges/tarrif compared to the room facility is quite low, paisa asool kind of thing.

All in all the stay was very nice & i am sure we would come back again to this resort

Room Tip: Check your room prior to accepting. Some of the rooms are renovated and some are uder renovation &am...

I was there with the family for 3N / 4D starting from 10 May, 2014. I reached hotel via Coimbatore route and road journey was indeed pleasant. I was having a deluxe cottage and first impression was pretty good after check-in. Room service was little sloppy and also servicing time was on higher side as the cottages are placed far from kitchen. I believe the washroom needs a complete overhaul by the hotel management. In view of wooden flooring and cold climate, the washroom was always wet after use and especially for kids, one need to accompany them. The hotel offers the best panoramic view as it's facing the famous lake. I would rate it good taking into the serene, beauty and maintenance of cottages by the hotel. It's a worth staying!!!!

Room Tip: Corner 1st / 2nd row offers the best view.

We stayed here 2 days in June. They have very nice cottages which has a room, a bathroom and a outer room. Rooms are cleaned,neat. Bathroom is also very nice. 24 hours geyser facility. Overall the hotel is very good. Couples can spend a very good time together there because the environment is so peaceful and fresh always. No interference of any outside noise in rooms. Just you and your time to enjoy this peace. If you are a couple, then don't give a second thpught just choose it. I was happy that we chose the hotel for staying initially in ooty.I would like to stay there again if i get a chance to visit ooty again.

Room Tip: you can choose any type of room. Cottages are pretty good.
