Hotel vivek in coonoor offers great food and the rooms are also very neatly maintained and hygienic. Service of staff is excellent. Complimentary breakfast was deliciously good. We had a great stay there with friends. This was true value for money.

Stayed at Hotel Vivek with family. The rooms were very good and were fairly priced. Food at their garden restaurant"Green Fields" was excellent. They arranged a camp fire upon request on the garden and we all enjoyed the stay. Overall a very good experience.

We stayed in Hotel Vivek during our family trip to Coonoor. The most important quality i experienced there was the Service they rendered to us. The food quality was superb. The complimentary breakfast was worth for its quality and variety.
Although the place is a bit far from the centre of Coonoor, we could forgo that comparing the quality we experienced there.
In all the tours we went, most hotels offered a free bed to the driver in a dormitory or so. Since it is a cold place asking the driver to stay in the vehicle itself during the nights was a difficulty. That was the only inconvience we experienced there. Hope the management will find some alternative for this by the time we make the next visit there

Reviews of Hotels tend to be subjective. Most customers who had a good experience,however memorable, rarely express their appreciation in writing, while people who had an unsatisfactory stay, tend to vent their spleen in reviews

Some reviewers are influenced by unrealistically high expectations and often tend to judge a budget hotel with the same yardstick they use for a more expensive property. I think, that in the case of some reviews, Viveks is a victim of the above realities!

The rooms in the older part of the hotel do look tired, but they are in a process of sprucing them up and , in the space of a month between two stays, we did see the improvement..

The hotel gives you a choice of a variety of rooms from the “standard”, to the “deluxe 5 bedded, at wallet friendly prices that get even more reasonable “off season”. Our family group occupied a "cottage" (which consists of a room with a double bed and an alcove with another bed and a private, open air dining space) and two rooms with double beds which have an interconnecting door. People were able to spend time with each other without going out on the corridor..

The rooms were comfortable enough, with good beds, clean sheets and pillows. The bathrooms were basic with clean towels, water heaters and showers. Toiletries,however, are confined to a small cake of Medimix.

The food was a bright feature of.Viveks. Our group rated the dishes as varying in quality between very good and excellent, with chicken malai tikka being an unqualified hit. There were no complaints about the complimentary breakfast which featured idli, pongal, vadai, choice of dosai, toast , cornflakes, and eggs to order. I did not have time to step into the hotel’s bar and cannot comment on it.

We got them to cater off site on two occasions and the food and service was very good.

The hotel has a small but pleasant garden and there is enough space for the kids to run around and enjoy themselves. A trampoline adds to their fun.

It is located in a nice part of town close to most places you want to go to in Coonoor.

The service was friendly and quite efficient. This is not to say that everything was perfect; and there were a few gaffes, but we appreciated the fact once a problem was brought to their notice, it was sorted out with reasonable speed. This quality of immediately paying attention to complaints makes one forget the shortcomings. Nikhil and Christopher are the go to people if the first line does not meet your expectations.

Viveks offers, very good value for money at a popular hill station. Well worth checking in !

Room Tip: Family groups of 5/6 people will do well to choose a "cottage" or rooms 401 and 402
