Went for a quick weekend getaway and we stayed at the Savoy. Reservations through the Taj Reservation office, was quick and efficient.
Check-in/out is an odd 2pm/12pm, so it requires some juggling to do to maximise your time at the property!
Savoy is pretty centrally located, slightly more than a km from the ooty station/bus stand and an auto should be 70-80 Rs, if you don't have your own transport.
The property is gorgeous, very well maintained gardens and spaces. The main building retains the colonial structure and the art-deco lounge space and bar, brings in an interesting blend of architectures!
We stayed at 312, which was housed in a colonial style row houses with really high ceilings! It was a lovely room, with a small side extension, where a rocking chair was placed. Sadly I couldn't use it, as it was unhinged on one side.
The room itself was large, beautifully appointed with classy bird prints and a super comfy bed. The bathroom is a little wee in comparison, but with the marble and glass fixtures, was modern and classy and again a nice mix of the old and new.
Needly to say, the service through and through, was highly professional and poliete. We requested an early check in and got our room by 12pm, which was nice.
My only crib was that the food served (we had almost all meals in the two day period there), wasn't wow inducing. In fact pretty average at best, but the dining room setting is so quaint, that you are left mixed. Of the menu, the best thing we had was the brilliant spicy figs desert. Yum!
The Canterbury bar is tiny yet cute and they have this awesome rum toddy with spices, which is perfect for the evening nip.
Highly recommended for a quite, relaxing time.
