Stayed with wife and 2 children from 23rd to 25th November 2010. Had booked through makemytrip.com after seeing the website, resort seemed modern and nice. Was apprehensive as there were no reviews on tripadvisor or anywhere else. Thought this may be due to it being relative new.
As we reached Ooty on the afternoon of 23rd, my apprehensions came true to some extent. The location was quite remote, much further than Lake View Resort. Not much view of any kind. Took time to find the place and had to call up front desk number of times. The occupancy itself was only 3 rooms due to which no people could be seen except the staff. The view around isn't anything to write about and there seemed no real walking places too. We were, in fact, very disappointed coming to this lonely place and wanted to change to another hotel, which was not possible. If one does not have a taxi or car, the resort is useless.
On the positive side, the rooms were good, clean, staff was very courteous (they had better be). Bathrooms were good. They had a small children's park. The resort in any other location may have been an excellent choice. We spent 3 days in Ooty and would be out most of the day so finally the location or loneliness did not matter. The breakfast was good and so was dinner which we had only once. But there was no one except us.
I think the resort is still being developed and will be a good one in time. I would recommend if one has own vehicle and is going be out most of the time. For those who want to just relax, spend time at the resort and take walks, I would not recommend.
