Beautiful property away from the hustle bustle of Ooty city. Amazing gardens where one should ideally spend some time admiring the best of flowers in the morning. Picture perfect view from the gardens as well. Nice buffet breakfast as well. Very courteous hotel staff. Would love to visit again.

A beautiful property with a well established fairly large garden on a hill side in Upper Coonoor which was a British Hill Station. The place has an interesting history including one owner who got into improvements without bothering about planning approval. The stairs to our room were made freehand so they were very uneven some with high risers and others...

The place is located just at the outskirts of coonoor. The place has everything one can ask for... Built in the 18th century, the hotel is a mixture of modern facilities superimposed on an antique architecture. The creaking wooden floorings and the traditional fire place along with the overhead lighting are just adding a lovely touch to the place. The...

British colonial charm with that Raj era feel, rooms very comfortable - ours was huge with two and half rooms plus bathroom. A bit pricey but staff were very friendly and helpful. Wi-fi is available and the dining room buffet is worth considering.

It's a very soothing, calm and quiet stay. Appreciating the beauty of the nature with churping birds, watching the games of clouds in blue sky, one can spend endless time on the lawn area. With open hands one can breath in fresh air.
