My review of King's Cliff is quite overdue. It's been almost 5 months since we spent a couple of nights at this property. (last week of Dec). The drive to the Ooty from Bangalore was fairly straight forward. However, it did take some time to locate this property since there wasn't much signage available on the roads. I wish that were a little better. I would also recommend that you have proper transportation if you were to locate this place.
We reached this property well after their lunch hours (around 330 pm). Despite that, the staff at their restaurant (Earls Secret) went out of the way to ensure that we were served as if it were just past noon. Not to mention the food was delectable. Coming to the property, it would make you feel as if you were in a Dickens book. Takes you back in time. We were booked into a room with a private sit out named Othello. Loved the fact that all the architecture from the original mansion was preserved with minimal restoration. The fireplace in the bedroom was the icing on the cake. You could have it lit during winters. In addition, the hotel would also place an electric heater in your room should you require. The bathroom was large with a separate shower area. However, it would have like it to have brighter lighting. Menu at the Earls Secret is quite elaborate and quite affordable. Not to mention, food is brilliant. No wonder the restaurant is listed #1 in Ooty. You could order food to be served in your room or else eat at the restaurant and soothe your ears to some live music. The property is conveniently close to most attractions in and around Ooty. Finally, we were gifted with a couple of saplings of Periwinkles from their garden while departing. With subtle improvements to signage, lighting and online booking experience (currently, you cant book online) this B&B can quickly move up the ranks.
