“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2013

We stayed here twice and were very happy with our stay at Nanda lodge.
The staff were very helpful and nice to us and went out of their way to make sure we were happy.
This is a budget hotel but for the price the roomes were a good size, cleaner than many, and the beds were comfortable.
They had fans and hot showers and tv.
The location is central and under 10 minutes walk to the station.
A few doors up is a hotel where you can eat good vegitarian Indian food from breakfast through to dinner, just ask at reception.
If you want a simple, clean, and cheap room this is the place for you.

Basic room with clean beds and cold showers. Nice man who runs the hotel. We were also recommended the Annapoorna restaurant and had an excellent lunch and dinner there. Not much happening in Mettupalayam, there is an internet shop on the second floor of the shopping centre opposite Nanda Lodge. There is also a reasonable food store near by. People in train station booking office are very friendly and helpful so makes sense to use your time here booking any future train tickets in India.

Correct place, just to sleep and go. The owner is very nice person and wants to improve the place, so he asks for advice. Close to the train station where you get the toy train to Ooty.

We only stayed here one night, to catch the toy train to Ooty.

It was a good choice for a nights stay. It's definitely 'no frills' basic accommodation, but we couldn't fault the cleanliness or the helpfulness of the staff.

Overall, a good choice.

Negatives - no hot water.

My partner and I stayed at the Nanda Lodge in February. It is horrible. Granted, it is very close to the Toy Train station to take you to Ooty, but the hotel is a pit. Dusty, dirty, noisey. No one to help with luggage. Down the street only about a quarter of a mile is a wonderful, very new hotel with a great restaurant......AND about the same price as Nanda. The name of the hotel is Hotel EMS Mayura at 212 Coimbatore Road. You can find it if you google it. I am sure you could even get a taxi to take you in the morning to the nearby train station.

a very basic hotel. on arrival the manager tried to charge me more than was agreed by email. he was told that wasnt happening!
the room was grubby and the hotel is on an extremely busy junction with traffic noise all night. one way to drown out the noise was to switch on the aircon which was like a small aircraft!
hotel is close to the train station which is good as mettupalayam was easily the most unwelcoming place we experienced in india.
Although the hotel is not great I didnt see any others in mettupalayam that looked any better

T. Rangaswami owns the place and will tell you in the detail you need how to get on the famous Toy Train to Ooty even if you do not have a ticket yet. Stay here and ask for advice. Good clean and friendly hotel. Close is restaurant Maruthi - simple but healthy and good. Get there early and even if you cannot get a room ask their advice.
