On the way to the Green Hotel in Mysore from Ooty, we soon realised that our driver had no idea about the hotel's location. He asked various people but this got us only onto the road where the hotel was supposed to be. Rickshaw and taxi drivers seemed mystified and unable to help. Luckily we happened upon it by accident. Hotel staff later told us that the hotel was previously known as Premier Studios - in a prevous life it had been a film studio until shut down by fire. We were told that this name was still known to taxi and rickshaw drivers!
Anyway what a great place. Formerly a palace then film studio now a fine hotel. The main old building has a small number of rooms each surrounded by furnished but unused "rooms of state". Another separate building has a larger number of rooms which appear to lack the charm of the older building. Ask for a palace room, it is worth it. We stayed in the Bollywood room with various pictures of old and more recent stars of the silver screen.
Fine dining sometimes (weather permitting) under the stars by candlelight. Very obliging staff and very good Indian food. Breakfast included (either Indian or Anglo). Travel desk is efficient and reliable driver available for day trips.
