Hi Guys !! I am a traveller from Bengaluru. I had been to Ooty in november and we were accomodated at Sri Balaji Hotel. Rooms were very clean and tidy. The hot water facility and all was very good. The guardian of the Hotel Mr.Praveen was also very friendly and he had given us a perfect plan for spend our 2 day time at Ooty. A very thanks to him. There are hotels nearby to that hotel so you need not worry regarding food too. Rooms are reasonable too. I prefer my readers to book this hotel if you are planning for a trip to Ooty. Its easily motorable too from bus stand.
Hotel has good parking facility. A good scenery view. Two "swings" for kids. It is situated at coonor road so it is far from main city 1.5km. It is situated on highway so you will find heavy vehicles and fast moving cars. Hotel provides hot water. Staff is good. No restaurant. It is not like a modern hotel but still a good hotel. I only feel bad when they charged 50 rupy for 1 extra blanket per night that is wrong thing because 1 blanket is not sufficient which they gave us so we paid and got another one. Rest it is an average hotel. You can eat from nearby shops.
First of all, this cannot be considered as a hotel. It's more of a motel with zero facilities - at least that is what I felt in my two day's stay there. They failed to provide every single thing we asked for. Even for having food, paper plates and spoons had to be bought from them - as they do not even provide these basic amenities to say the least. So, you can very well understand that Hotel Sri Balaji is below standard and probably the worst option in Ooty. When we reached at the hotel in the late afternoon, they failed to provide us with any food. After driving all the way from Bangalore, we had to look for our own food outside. I understand that they do not have an in house restaurant, but they usually provide food to guests from a local nearby restaurant the menu card of which are kept in all the rooms. However, they failed to arrange the food (not even snacks) for us in the late afternoon after we reached Ooty which falls under their responsibility. They said that none of the surrounding hotels or restaurants would be open then. But strangely enough, we managed to get a good Chinese meal from a hotel just opposite to this property. This proves the lack of intention of the hotel staffs to serve us food during that time. Besides, the rooms provided were not maintained at all and were shabby and filthy. Cob webs were all around the room walls, the curtains were not clean neither the overall condition of the rooms. We even lost a pair of slippers at the hotel. We went out for sight seeing and after returning at the hotel, we noticed that a pair of slippers which was kept in a paper was missing. When inquired about it, came to know that the room cleaning staff threw it away. I am sure nobody would like to go through this kind of an experience while in a holiday. So it is imperative that you avoid Hotel Sri Balaji as an option in Ooty.
We were 8 adults and 8 kids. We got good deal on Goibibo for the 8pax cottage. 1. The cottage is easily larger than our regular middle class 2bhk. 2. It has 4 double bed cots. We are 4 young couples with each couple having two children, so this whole cottage and 4 beds is well suited for us 3. Hot water for bath is available in limited time but that is good enough. 4. If you have your own vehicle or rented vehicle for the whole trip, this is best place as it is little away from the main town traffic 5. Food you have limited options in walkable distance but for variety one has to go in the town. 6. Overall it works out vey best here. 7. Prefer 1st floor.
the very first impression was,we have to pay extra amount for the 3rd adult...whether they asked intentionally or without knowing, its a doubt....later after requesting them to check with the ref.no they were convinced that we already paid for all. no sorry from the reception.parking at the basement, very horrible....have to improve or find an alternate place.at restaurant,its written the kinds of fresh juices available...but when asked for orange,the person there replied,its not available.only cable tv available with many channels with poor signal strength... can b provided with dish tv.such things made our stay little bit not upto satisfaction.otherwise,its ok
