“Good food, Good cottages and helpful staff.”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

I checked in there on the boxing day of 2013. I called them just 30 minutes before the check in for a room for my family (wife and three kids) and they were happy to offer us a suite in the cottage since there was a cancellation. It was only Rs 2000 per night for that very spacious room. The suite has three inter connected rooms. On entering there is a big drawing room with sofa. The master bed room is very spacious. It has a 56 inch HD TV. There is a kids room with a single coat very next to the master bedroom. Very spacious bathroom with 24 hrs hot water. The restaurant serves healthy food. Hotel is very next to the tourist office. It has got ample parking. The lawn is very good for the children to play.
Cons: Online booking is full many weeks ahead in the busy days. Restaurant menu is limited. There is no clock room. Cleaning staff will enter the room only if we are there. No heating on the rooms. Staff shortage, Check out at 10 AM. Frequent power cuts. Laundry takes more than one day. Coffee will be available only by 6.30 AM. There is no coffee making machine/ kettle.

Room Tip: Ordinary double rooms are congested. Cottages and suite are cheap and spacious.

Since this is govt hotel, this is definitely not for people looking for luxury stay.

-> Location: very good. Located near to main market area. Few attractions like Botanical Garden and Ooty lake are located close by.
-> Hotel area: good. Though there is greenery all around, it could have been maintained little better
-> Room: good. I had taken penthouse. Room was very spacious with sofa, big LCD tv. Separate dining area. Bathtub. dressing room. The bad part is that, they had given two single bed instead of one double bed
-> Restaurant: ok. They have very limited option.
-> Service: definitely can be better

This is my second stay in this hotel and it seems the standard has fallen over the year. The room I selected is a basic room, but still it felt too basic.

The room was quite neat and clean, with a balcony that opens to the inside courtyard. The room had a cupboard, a tv and a kind of desk attached to the cupboard. The place looks nice but somehow feel like maintenance is not going on well. Another thing is in-spite the hotel saying its a double bed room, there were basically two single beds.

I felt the quilts could have been bit cleaner, or can be given inside wrapper. The room service is bit slow and a real irritation is that for any room service you have to pay then and there, rather than making a payment during checkout.

Another bad point is geyser only works in night which is real problem in cold areas. Also they provided only one soap per room.

I ate at the hotel on two occasion, dinner on 1st night and complimentary breakfast on 2nd day. I found the quantities inadequate.

Ok lot of negatives, few good points:-

1. Affordable
2. Well located near the major market.
3. Nice view from front of the hotel (balcony of rooms facing the outside view)
4. Value for money
5. Friendly staff (they actually helped us lot during return journey)

Room Tip: Choose rooms facing the front

I stayed in the pent house & cottage for 1 day each. Here are my list of pros & cons of the hotel.

Pro's
1) Nice location - its located at a 2mins walk from charring cross (the main market area).
2) Spacious rooms - I found out penthouse to be enough spacious compared to cottage where space for living room (with only 2 sofa's in a separate room) felt getting wasted.
3) Good Breakfast - The food was yummy, few options (dosa/vada/idly/poori masala) and vegetarian.
4) Penthouse was on 3rd floor with a (almost) private terrace area

Con's
1) No balcony in cottage
2) Old furniture and not well maintained
3) Lifts were not working
4) They want hard copy of your booking (and not email), had to go to a cyber cafe to get a printout.
5) Odd check-in/check-out time - it was 10am, usually see it around noon so that you get enough time to get up late and get ready .

Also uploading few pics of both the rooms here!

Room Tip: Penthouse if you can afford it, else deluxe rooms. Don't go for cottages.

Hotel is located near botanical garden. It was off season so teriff was low. Hotel is spacious, rooms are also spacious. Hot water is essential in ooty, geysers are provided in bathrooms. Breakfast was included in room teriff. All south indian breakfast.

Room Tip: Check gysers before selecting room and checking in.
