Stayed in Highland High for 2 nights and have just no regrets.
Staff - All staff very helpful, courteous and hospitable... whichever department. Special thanks to Mahalingam and Satish. Highland High is lucky to have staff like them in the hotel
Room - Nice sized rooms, very nicely done up, very clean washrooms with all necessary amenities. Nice size LCD.
Location/View - Away from the city crowd, close to Doddabeta peak. As we got a mountain facing room, the view was breathtaking.
Food - Only had breakfast here. Was quite OK. I liked the idea of the steward going round with omelettes/dosas/Uttapam and serving platter to plate rather than the guest ordering his choice and waiting for his order. masterpiece of an idea whosoever gave it.
Areas of improvement -
1. The chaffing dishes in the restaurant are shabby.
2. The exhaust system of the kitchen is not too good. You can get food smell in the room corridors, labby and the restaurant which is a bit of turn off.
3. Though I didn't have dinner, the dinner buffet can be improved. It didn't look inviting enough.
All in all, a great stay - Highly recommended hotel to stay in.
When I had booked a couple of months back, Tripadvisor showed 7th rank in hotels in Ooty, now they stand 3rd. This only speaks volumes of their commitment/improvement.
