Stayed here for couple of days...
I would say its one of the best in Ooty as it is value for money.
The staff is all very friendly and the food is quite good(Little expensive though).
Excellent Fireplace and is a great hotel for families.

I read many bad reviews about this place and was quite skeptical before actually arriving there. Had heard about all sorts of complaints. So let me confirm once, they have just awesome services, awesome food (a little pricey though for room service), pretty neat and clean, a perfectly snug fireplace and very friendly stuff. We loved our stay here.

The hotel is very nice to stay. It is on the way to ooty lake and the location is too good to stay . It is silent and having individual cottages. Food, cleanliness are good. Travel desk is to be improved a little. Staffs are nice.

we stayed in deluxe cottage is quite good.

First of all let me tell you the good things: Good picturesque location, cool weather, good food.
Bad things: Slow service due to understaffing,Beware , they will try to charge you for a
single minute extra stay.They tried to cheat me although I have handed over the key
within 24 hrs, they took time in the morning to find out the details from computer
and tried to charge me for extra(Although even that was only 5 mins from 2 days).
They donot keep track about cleartrip package and went to charge at their own rate-
Only when pointed out they tried to cheat.Room is having very poor smell even after spraying room freshner , it didnot go.I would not recommend anybody to stay in this hotel
at least after paying 1500+ per day.There are better options available in Ooty

We recently went to Ooty for a couple of days and stayed at this hotel as this seemed to be a popular choice amongst Ooty hotels and offered good value for money. But we were in for a shock!

Lets start with the good part first. The cottages are nice and spacious, the location is attractive... and thats all that we found good about the hotel.

Now the bads... and this is going to be a long list. The water you get here is muddy... with a strange kind of muck floating in there. The housekeeping said it was a temporary problem and would be solved in 10 minutes, but it wasnt ever solved in our entire 2 days of stay. one would fear what kind of diseases it might carry. One time they even gave this for drinking water. The room service takes a long time as there are over a 100 cottages. The restaurant doesn't offer good food anyway... so its better if you eat someplace else. But there aren't any other restaurants nearby. There were a few other problems, but i have mentioned the major ones here.

I would recommend this hotel only if you dont plan to eat and shower over here and are only looking for a bed to sleep on.
