4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

Stayed from April 12 - 15, 2012(2D, 3 N)

Location

Around 2 km from the city. Easy to find when you are entering the city. Completely isolated from the city. I enjoyed the stay as I prefer pleasant and calm location rather than a typical lodge in city. Preferable to have your own vehicle. But as i heard, outside vehicle will have parking charges during sight seeing.

Room Service

Very good hospitality. No doubt in that. They might even surprise you some times with more service. Full marks for that. Manager Kumar is very helpful and reachable when ever needed.

Cost

Since it is not of a typical resort type(small individual rooms), the cost i think is a bit on the higher side. Break fast is complimentary and good varieties. Dinner charged at 125 which is definitely on the higher side given the quality. Since there is no descent restaurent in the near by 1 km, you have to plan ahead for dinner(wheather to have it at lodge or outside).
May be if you have your own vehicle, you can go out for dinner. Since I booked local cab (9AM-6 PM), we had no other choice to have dinner at resorts only.
They can bring you parcel from outside, if needed but have to tell them min 1.5 hr before.
Overall a descent dinner.

Quality of stay and surrounding

Since it is a new one, the room is very neat and good. Taken suite room as we are four members. Have good space for kids to enjoy outside.

Cab service for sight seeing

Easily the best one i had till now. The driver name is KARTHIK. I suggest if you are planning to book cab from resort, you ask for this guy. He speaks fluent english. Knows the ooty in and out and will plan your places as per the schedule . We booked for two days. I could not cover Madhumalai and Avalanche as they will be closed during feb,march. No roses also in rose garden during this month. Heard a lot about them from driver also. They should be open from may again, as per driver comments.

Over all a very good experience, given the fact that I had just gone through reviews and booked the stay with out any other source info about it. Except for some few issues, a very good stay.

I believe the main parameters for a good holiday trip apart from places is good room service, the driver to plan your trip, descent food.

FAIRSTAY resort is very good in all these aspects. Hope my review will help others to plan their ooty trip well. You can contact me at prasar.83@gmail.com

Room Tip: Rooms on back side might have better view from balcony if you are interested about it.

The rooms was excellent with a beautiful view from the balcony. One can see sunrise from the hills in the kodaikanal resort. the hotel staffs were all polite. the service was also excellent. The driver Mr. karthick was the best one. he took us to all the places. I advice everybody if they book a package than insist for the driver named karthick. i bet u will not get such a humble an knowledgeable person like karthick. Please do book your hotel with MR. Kumar of ooty. Mr. Anumbani has created many misunderstanding with us. however he rectified all those.

Room Tip: Ask for hill view rooms

When we decided to go to ooty, I started searching for Hotels and booked Fairstay resorts after seeing the reviews in Tripadvisor.It wasnt difficult to find the hotel though it was 4km away from the city. The road leading to the resort from the main road was not that good. but i was expecting this as someone had already mentioned in their review.
I reached there around 2pm but around 1pm i had called the manager to check if lunch was available. but they told they dont have serve lunch. Only breakfast and dinner was available. so we had our food on the way .
I booked a executive 2 bed room.The room was neat and clean and the staffs were very courteous. They were very polite.
Breakfast was complimentary and dinner was charged at 125 per head. only veg is available.
Food was tasty.
There was a play area for the kids and my kids enjoyed it.
They arrange for local sight seeing in the car.
We were there for 3 days and really enjoyed the stay in the resort.

I had been to ooty with my family for 2 nights stay in Fairstay, although the property can be rated very average, the staff were kind and very helpful. The package with sight seeing and food was very good. Thanks to Mr. Kumar, the booking procedure was done smoothly online and the travel arrangements within ooty were also done well with good travel agents, we were provided with the best drivers who knew the city in and out and were also helpful and kind to our kids.
