We spent 3 nights there and enjoyed every single minute of it. Cozy rooms with nice fireplace lit by the staff. If you want to avoid the hectic in the center of Ooty this is the perfect place to enjoy the peaceful charm of this hill station. One day we did a wonderful trekking tour organized by Mr. Bosco (Nr. 09443345258) which lead us through splendid nature and landscapes. We would like to particularly thank Shekhar for his helpful service.
Loved our stay here in this charming heritage hotel. Set on one of the hills overlooking Ooty, its a welcome relief from the noise and hustle of the town centre, but only a 10 minute rickshaw ride away. The staff were lovely and happy to light the fire in our room and provide hot water bottles on chilly winter nights. The food was stupendous! We found a couple of lovely local walks through the forests but also a local man, John Bosco, who provided a guide who took us on an amazing 4 hour hike into the hills. We saw langur monkeys, loads of birds and leopard poo (though no leopards sadly), incredible views and not another tourist in sight. He took us to two hill tribe villages where we were invited in to meet the families. Utterly delightful and highly recommended. John's number is 09443345258.
Loved it here. A little way out of town but worth it. View from our garden room was breathtaking. Room was generous with open fire. Bathroom quite big. Breakfast was great. After initial misunderstanding with our booking from Agoda all went well. Dinners were great. Actually ate western for the first time in 7 weeks. We were a bit worried about ordering western but it was beautiful. If you want a drink dont forget to buy it earlier and take it to the restaurant. They do not serve alcohol but dont mind you bringing your own. Got to our room after dinner fire was lit and a hot water bottle was in our bed (not that we really needed it). How sweet. Staff were excellent so would highly recommend staying here.
I visited there in end of 2018. The facilities, staff, food are great and I also love the location of the hotel. The morning view from rooms balcony is mesmerising. Would like to thank Shekhar for the service he provided throughout my stay.
We had a pleasant stay here for 2 nights . Pros- Service, food, ambience , fireplace in the room, picture perfect garden. Cons - room heater was not available, the room which we stayed 'Verona' was not very spacious.
