This is the best place for stay on ooty.It's a good place for entertainment. we have see so many beautiful place such like hilltop, resorts, tea gardens etc...It's a very nice we were stay above three days on there.
It was our first anniversary and we have decided to stay at this hotel and our experience was fabulous. We have stayed for 5 days from 12th Feb to 16th Feb.
Hotel Location & View -
The moment you enter the hotel, you will be greeted with the breath taking natures view. It is an excellent property located little away from city center. The Hotel is very near to Dodabetta Peak Junction, so transportation is not a problem. And even the hotel itself will arrange the cab on your request.
Reception/ Reservation Team -
We have arrived at the hotel at 8 AM a little early then the regular check-in time of 12PM. The Reception Team has given the early check-in without any additional charges. The Check-in was very smooth. Thank you Mr. Sateesh & his full team.
Food & Restaurant
Breakfast menu was elaborate and items were tasty. We have tasted almost all the Vegetarian Variety from their Food Menu. The Food is Fantastic & tasty. The best part is we have given some suggestion to them & they have taken care of it for our all meals. All the staffs in the restaurant had taken good care of us. I would also like to thank Mr. Manikandan for accepting our suggestion. Please add more cuisines in your menu card. Thank you to the team of Restaurant.
The rooms are specious and beautiful with all necessary facilities. Toilets are clean with bath tub & other amenities. They have newly built Wood Cottage. They are extremely beautiful. We have stayed in Room No. 203 which had a beautiful view.
I would like to thanks Mr. Palaniappan. B who has made our Anniversary memorable. Every day we came to our room after the sigh seeing, we have found beautiful designs from towel on the bed. On our Anniversary night also he has done a beautiful flower decoration in the room. Thank you once again sir for your excellent service. Thank you to the team of house keeping.
Play area & Lawn
Lawn is the highlight of the hotel. They have a play area where you can play TT, Carom, Xbox, Land zorbing, Cricket bowling machine, badminton and many other games. Mr. Shravan was very helpful & he has arranged many games for us. You can also enjoy the varieties of Tea at Tea Stall named as Tea Kadai and have a spectacular view of valley and forest.
Hotel Event manager Mr. Shiv kumar was very nice person and we enjoyed Bonfire, Karoake event and many other activities organised by him. Bonfire was the best and wonderful. He has even taught me the Billiards during my stay.
Overall, this is a great place for couples and family. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone who's thinking of spending time in ooty.
The hotel is in an awesome location, close to Doddabetta peak. The rooms are kept neat and clean. The view from the room is superb. The restaurant is also good, the breakfast spread was decent. The highlight of the hotel though is the play area for kids and adults. Shiva and Saravanan who look after the play area were very helpful and ensured every one enjoyed. They ensured that kids and adults are entertained in the play area as well as during the evening activities. The village style tea shop with snacks in the evening is a pleasant surprise. All in all a very enjoyable and relaxing stay in Accord Highland Hotel, Ooty.
This hotel is little away from the actual Ooty town, so if you are not on own transport or unless you decide to hire a taxi everytime you go out - you can forget this option. There is nothing around this hotel - closest place is the doddabetta peak sight seeing point parking area.
Room are good but really does not have any valley view. They were building new cottages when we stayed, which once ready will have very good views of the valley. However, the standard room does not have any valley view.
But the lawn area where they have a "Tea Stall" open every evening is an amazing area to sit, relax, do nothing and enjoy the weather if that's your choice. I spent 3 nights in the hotel and I would have easily spent 3 or 4 hours every day in this lawn. The advantage is that this is next to the kids activity center, you can sit here and relax while the kids enjoy their time in the activity center.
Activity center is good with TT table, carrom, chess and PS3/4, Kinect options for kids to keep them engaged. The bonfire they organize is also very nice and interesting - should appreciate the hotel on these.
Rooms were spacious and I took a suite - it had a huge bed room and a spacious hall. Each room had TV and sufficient seating area and options.
The highlight again is the lawn area, which overlooks a valley and a forest area. Sitting in the lawn, I saw many will wild boar, many bison and many animals / birds from the forest area. The hotel dumps food waste in a hole dug up on the forest side - the animals come there every evening searching for food.
The only negative during my stay, was on day 1 when the hotel staff lit up a fire in non-food waste hole and this messed up the entire lawn and kids activity center with smoke and fumes. I had to complain (no action) and so had to go and scream at the manager to have someone kill the fire and smoke. It was indeed irritating ... however during my stay for 3 night, after Day 1 - they never burnt anything till late evening. I hope it;s still the same.
The ATV and the land zorb option was useless - I would suggest it's removed. It;s costly and not worth the time and money.
I will recommend this hotel and will return
Its a cosy place to stay with homely touch, very good staff , excellent service and manger is very helpful to accommodate needs. It was a good experience to stay there view from the room is fantastic.
