“A Couple's Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2010

I happen to book this hotel by mere luck with not much confidence. The website gave a fair idea about the hotel. This was for a weekend getaway with my newly wedded wife aft our honeymoon. This is really a couples paradise. You really would have piece of mind. Very calm, plush interiors, wonderful service from room boy to GM. A nice hospitality. Place is easily accessible by road and above all they provide free cab pick up and drop in ooty which made things very simple for us.

The complimentary breakfast was too good with so many menu from corn flakes, juice, bread and jam to idly, dosa, vada, what not..

The lunch wasn't to our expectations but Indian menu would do better than other cuisines.

We were treated very royal and i made up my mind to go back only there next time. No doubt.

Simply speaking, Worth the premium paid.

Made my friends aware and next month my friend has done his booking for a weekend. Should i say anything more.

Our family spent 2 nights at this hotel and were very happy with their very friendly service. We were actually a bit bowled over with their friendly hospitality; late each afternoon staff would have friendly games of cricket and badminton in the carpark. Guests were regularly invited to join in and some took up the offer. Our young son spent hours hours eagerly waiting for his turn to play and the staff were very friendly and attentive with him. This was probably one of the highlights of his trip!

The rooms were quite spacious and clean, with everything we needed. They had large picture windows which overlooked other houses and into the surrounding hills. We dined in each evening as the food was so good ! Only a very short walk into town past local houses and friendly faces.

Very well located, just 5 minutes walk to the centre. A fairly modern place with a very helpful managment. Other staff too are very helpful. We had a spacious room, and a bath (only time we saw one in India!) as well as shower. Breakfast is adequate. Had evening meal there twice, and quite tasty. Could really do with a revamp of restaurant to make it more appealing. Trips and advice are readily available, and glad we stayed for the few days.

Myself and my husband opted for this hotel in Oct 2009, when we decided to visit Ootty on one of the long weekends. We had no idea how the place will be since we got to know about this from net and there were no reviews. But it was one of the best vacations we had! The hotel is located very near to city, CCD is just 2 mins walk, market place is 5 mins walk. The rooms are spacious, very clean, service is good. Food is a bit expensive, but good in taste. The manager is a very friendly person and very co-operative. They will arrange for sight seeing packages at pretty reasonable rates. After dinner, we used to go for a walk( its a safe place), and have a cafe latte at ccd. Place is best suited for families. So next time u go to Ootty, opt for this place!
