Rooms are clean and well maintained but are little congested. There is no proper parking facility available; Its not a problem if you take two wheelers. My suggestion is you can keep this as a second option.

I haven't experienced such an unprofessional behavior ever by booking hotels through travel portals. I had booked room through makemytrip and had even called the hotel and confirmed the booking prior to my journey.

I booked this place through goibibo. It was a really dirty place and not at all hygienic. We got the room after waiting for 1 hour despite coming after the checkin time and paying in advance. The food there is over priced. Would not recommend to anyone.

This hotel is located mere 5/7 minutes driving distance from Ooty or Udagamandalam station. So right after putting your luggage you can go out for your trip. More than that the hotel staffs are cooperative and well behaved. Room standards are good & having all modern amenities like room hitting, gizar, television etc. No one makes any noise here and...

Worse Place to stay. No Hot water supply in the evening. Tourist have to refresh themselves in chilling cold water. In the morning hot water available only after 7.30 AM. Dirty blankets without any covering sheets. Bathroom door locks and basin taps not working properly. Rooms 103-106 are very bad. Sometime you won't find anyone to attend in the reception....

I booked for quadruple room (4 Bedded room)through phone booking and after reaching there they gave me 2 keys of 2 double bedded rooms and saying only that is available. Hopeless hotel, not clean and untidy. Don't even try to stay here in this hotel.

We were late and it was getting cold and I had to book rooms urgently. That's when we saw Rainbow Cottages on the roadside. It looked okay from the outside which tempted me to book as it was already late. Rooms were poorly maintained. The first room we booked had no water heater and TV. We politely asked for a...
