Good place to stay but could be better...we went in last week of august and were warmly welcomed but were not given the bungalow already booked by us bcz of some local marriage party requesting for it. And we were offered gate cottage for a price of Rs 1080 per day by DEEPA ,and we took it ,which was spacious ,neat,had good bed,24/7 hot water,bright during the day.But the food quality and service was pathetic to say the least and food is too expensive (rs.200 for veg meals) compared to the eateries surrounding .Room was cleaned on request and no tips were asked for which is really good.One day one waiter named JOHN OR STEPHEN ate a spoonful of our custard while bringing it our room .Another day ,few revelers (drunk) had loud music and were creating a ruckus outside our cottage preventing our small daughter from sleeping and had to call security and was cleared.Another day somebody from the marriage party had drunk and vomited right in front of sit out of our cottage which was outrageous.They have a small park were small children and elders can relax .Good number of eateries in the vicinity and market is 2 minutes walk .Improvement is needed in service and food and so would like to go there again for a second chance.Expected good food at nominal prices and no revelery (drinking in the campus) in a christian organisation unfortunately which is allowed.Gate Cottage is a roomy and brighter option of all accommodation available.

Room Tip: Gate Cottage is a roomy and brighter option of all accommodation available.

We drove down to Ooty on June 18th from Hyderabad and stayed in the 4-bedded cottage near the main gate for 3 nights. We could park our car right in front of the cottage.

For a price of Rs 1080 per day, one cannot get such decent accommodation. The cottage was freshly painted and well-maintained. The geyser supplied hot water from 6 am to 10 and from 6 pm to 9 pm. The TV was working fine and the drawing room was cosy.
The restaurant was also good, with a colonial look. Breakfast, especially dosa and idly, was sumptuous. The reception staff, namely Vinith and Priscialla were extremely courteous and helpful.

I'll certainly go there again, moreso when comparable accomodation costs 4 times as much. The location is good, as the bus station, railway station and Commercial street are all within 1.5 kms away. The Ooty Lake is 3 kms away

The only negatives were a non-working phone and a cold bathroom due to a vent high up that could not be reached.

Oooty as a town is dirty and disappointing but the YWCA was a good place to stay. The rooms are clean and spacious. I loved the old fashioned feel and the ethical basis of the YWCA (the profits from the guesthouses go to support their projects for women & girls in India).
The staff were very kind and welcoming. I was unwell when I arrived and they went out of their way to be helpful. Our first night was in a room in the main house but I needed more time to recover so we moved to one of the little bungalows which are also very good value.
They are very keen on fresh air so the dining room was very cold at times ( wrap up in extra layers). It was cold at night but you can have a hot water bag for Rs 30 which made all the difference!

Room Tip: The rooms in the main house have individual bathrooms but they are opposite across the corridor. If...

I made a reservation looking at the pictures available on this website, the pricing was extremely low as compared to the contemporaries. I was kind of doubtful about the place. I was taken by surprise when i reached, The receptionist was a nice well mannered guy, had all the details i gave him on the phone. I took a lower cottage which had a large bedroom, a small living room and a large bathroom attached. room was clean comfortable, bathroom geyser supplied hot water. Room service was nice, breakfast was good and reasonable. I would recommend this place for those who are looking for a serene, laid back location to enjoy your vacation,

Room Tip: lower cottages have a attached bathroom and they are nice

Stayed in one of the the lower cottage.

But the maintenance is not great. Flaky paint on the walls. Water flow from the geyser is very slow, open windows( that cant be reached as they are very high) in the toilets that make the room very cold at night. Telephone not working in the room, so had to walk over to the reception area to get room service. Food was average. Thin walls, so you can hear noises from neighbouring rooms.

Advantage: Room/Cottage are big with lot of greenery.

Visited with my wife and stayed there for 5 days. Nice Rooms and Perfect weather and superb locations made our trip unforgettable.
Coonoor is Perfect place compared to Ooty. very good locations,Tea Estates,waterfalls a pleasant place which should not miss.Y.W.C.A is highly recommendable as they got low cost rooms and Nice Food .Some items should be avoidable in MENU as they are costly .

I would like to stay there again for Next coming season.

Vanitha and Patrick are simply superb with their hospitality.

Room Tip: Go for a Double Room or Suite Room. Nice rooms and good food
