“Lovely guest house”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

We stayed in February for two nights. The room was spotlessly clean and very spacious, the bed was very comfortable. We had a large balcony with fantastic views over the town. The hotel staff were very accommodating as the hotel has no restaurant we just had to place an order for food and they would collect it for us. They also supplied us with jugs of hot water and cups for making tea and coffee. Because we were there in winter time the rooms were quite cold and there was no way of heating them.
Overall we had a good stay and would definately recommend this hotel.

We stayed for five nights and overall had a good experience. The room was large, the bed was comfortable and we had a spectacular balcony that looked out over the town. It was wonderful drinking coffee on the balcony in the morning and watching the town get going. We were a bit concerned because the hotel does not have a restaurant, but the two nights we ate in the room we placed an order with the staff and within 30 minutes the food was delivered to our room. The two restaurants the hotel works with were both excellent. You can walk to town in about 20 minutes so the location was not a problem - in fact it added to the experience since we were slightly above the town which gave us the great view. Unfortunately two of the nights we stayed here a very large group of people were in two of the four rooms and they took over the lobby as their party room. Since the rooms are far from sound proof we had to put up with a lot of yelling and laughing from the lobby. The first noisy night, when I went out to ask the people to please be quiet since it was 10:00 p.m. and we could not sleep with all the noise, I was surprised to count 10 adults and many children in the lobby. Where they were all sleeping I do not know, but several of them, we discovered the next morning, were sleeping outside in a van.When the people did not respond to my request to please be quiet I phoned the person on duty at the hotel who assured me he would get them to quiet down. However, the noise continued until 11:30. The same scenario played out for a second night, but then the people checked out so our final night was once again quiet. The hotel management needs to ensure that guests behave in an appropriately quiet manner after 10:00 p.m. so guests can sleep. We also had some challenges with the hot water (it is only on from 7 - 10, but you can request it be turned on at other times for 150 rupees for an hour). You get less the three minutes of hot water at a time and then have to wait about fifteen minutes for more water to heat. As a result, one of us had to have a very fast shower, then we would wait for fifteen minutes, and then the other could have a fast shower. Not a big problem but a little inconvenient. However, even considering the noise problem and the minimal hot water this place is one fine hotel - just hope you are not staying on nights when family parties take over the lobby.

We selected this place based on affordable room rate & reviews in the Trip adviser . We stayed 2 days there and I would recommend this place if you are looking for a good stay at Ooty.

We got a room with a beautiful balcony view. The room service and the staffs were really nice. The food served in the room was also reasonably good.
Room was clean and the facilities were sufficient.
