My husband and I spent one night at the Green Hotel en route to Ooty. We arrived late afternoon, after a long drive and were graciously allowed to check out all the rooms in the heritage wing that were unoccupied. We chose the Rose Room. The generous hot showers after our dusty drive were an unexpected bonus after which we collapsed gratefully onto comfortable beds made up with with spotlessly clean linen.
The Green Hotel is not for anyone expecting five star comforts and facilities but for people who love the thought of spending a few days in a gorgeous old heritage building and being pampered by attentive, smiling staff, you can't go wrong. It is however, located along a busy road, the noise of traffic and trucks can be bothersome and the rooms are not airconditioned but we were too tired to notice.
Dinner was quite delicious and the general manager and staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome even though we were guests for only one night. When we left early next morning it was too early for breakfast but there was a flask of hot coffee waiting for us downstairs which was a nice gesture.
The Hotel prides itself for being eco-friendly. The GM explained it is run as a trust property and all proceeds are ploughed back into local charities. Well someone is doing a great job here and it shows. It was an amazing experience for the price we paid and so much more authentic than staying in some grand, soulless 'palace hotel' run by a five star chain. Would definately recommend Green Hotel as a very special place to stay.
