“Not worth it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

1. The room has good features especially the sound system and the bathroom
2. The room that was given to us was not a good one. I asked for a change which never happened. I did not pursue it further
3. Room cleaning is done well, but the clearance of food plates are not done at all; It is done only during the room cleaning; Infact the corridor looks filthy throughout the day with all the food plates lying outside. Especialy my family is a vegetarian and we always cover the nose with towels while walking in the corridor
4. Car arrangement for sight-seeing is good
5. Restaurant is a disaster for the guests; The following are the issues.
a. Food is available only for a limited time and that too at odd times. No alternatives are available and we were literally starving and fighting for some basic food. The dinner starts well past 8:00PM even on a peak season and my child was really struggling. The resort is well outside the town and it is not easy to go to city for food. From the second day, we started to store some dry food in the room that was bought outside.
b. Limited options of food; What is the point of having menu card in the room when the restaurant people asking to select ala carte items only from the buffet menu? For lunch, there is absolutely nothing
c. The staff was not courteous at all and rude whenever we visited restaurant for some food. They literally say if you want food, wait for the buffet to start around 8:00 or 8:30. Even for ala carte, you have to wait until the buffet starts; They really don't care whether the food is for the child or adults. We literally have to beg even for some basic food
d. For such a pathetic restaurant, the food was at the cost of five star hotel
6. Limited staff who are not courteous; They never addressed any issues till we left and not even one senior person came to our rescue throughout the stay. No one bothered to listen to any of the issues.

On the whole, my 5 day holiday in Zest Danish Villa was a complete disaster.

Room Tip: Rooms in first floor have a big balcony. But you will never get what you want, so forget it.

Quiet place...Congested parking. Rs. 20 drinking water charged Rs.72....stayed for one night. Restaurant food was good. Since there are only 15 rooms.....not crowded.Staff was courteous. Need to improve the lighting in the room....

The resort is very well located - not too close to the city or too far. Just a couple of kilometers from the main city area. It boasts of a very nice play area for kids. The rooms are big for resort standards and are maintained very well. The best part of this place is the food. The food at this place is lip-smacking and request all guests to try out the restaurant in this resort. Resort staff are super nice and helpful to the guests. Overall, a nice place to be in Ooty.

Room Tip: First and second floor rooms will give you a good view of the city

Overall a good property. The only shortcoming noticed was that restaurant was found to be empty always (except Breakfast time). Maybe because people prefer nearby market for snacks / busy in local sight seeings or rate at the property are high. Breakfast was served very late around 8:30 which hampers the programme.

Poor location out of town, room was cold despite fan heater which had to be requested and, we were initially told, would be charged for.That didn't happen. Restaurant deserted, food was good. Credit card wouldn't work on check-out so we were told we would have to go into town to draw cash. That didn't happen either but had to use partner's card.
Would have preferred to not stop there.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.
