The rooms are good and neatly maintained. Has a garden with camp fire facility. But only one boy was there for service who hardly understood Hindi or English. I will say its not worth the money you pay. There was issue with water also. Early morning the water got over.

It was one of the worst experience to opt for this hotel. Me was with my family which I opted or 2 dorm room. And the service by the hotel person available there was worst from the check-in onward. The room was not cleaned at the time of check-in. Later he arranged for another room after waiting us for half an hour in the lobby, again the morning the other problem was the hot water. The person said that it will available from morning 7. 30 to 9. But it was bad. And for sure I will never suggest this damn ugly hotel for my friends or anyone else.

Not clean at all. Rooms were not clean. Service was worst. Small rooms with worst bathrooms. Not lights in the room. Dusty beds. Dirty blankets. No arrangement of staff. Glass piece and shit things. Worst hotel ever.

Good experience. On the hill top on the tea garden.

Location - If you love isolation, this is perfect. But if you like to keep distance short to most destinations around Ooty, this would add to your travel. Food - Very limited options - especially breakfast. No drinks being served. Other Facilities - Room was decent. Since this is in the middle of tea gardens, the views were good. Thinks like internet were not working. Hot water was a problem, it was only warm. Staff - Hospitable but has serious understanding issues. Service is quite delayed.

    I just stayed for a day and experienced a brilliant view of Ooty, it's a brit built property but can be maintained well. Roof is covered with the age old metal sheet which needs roofing with wood or concrete for better insulation. Without which kids and seniors would suffer when temperature drops out.

    5.0/5

    It's a small hotel located at utmost beautiful location within mesmerising tea gardens, service and food is excellent. Our stay is most comfortable and pleasing. Only as it is located far from Ooty city, you take more time to reach the sightseeing. And only suggestion is to kindly be in touch with the hotel when you go for the first time as it's impossible to locate the hotel without their guidance. GPS may be useful because it's too inside the hill which might frighten you.
