Let me first start from Traveling towards Sherlock and then proceeding with Sherlock
We family of 5 and 1 Infant were on Vacation and already visited Bangalore and Mysore and were heading towards Ooty which was out last destination to Relax. After having wonderful stay @ both places and pleased with my research and planning for the trip. I was having huge expectation from SHERLOCK too...I ZEROED down this property after having many reviews and research on other properties of Ooty. Intension was simple..should be Nice, Hygenic , Good Food and Parents should be HAPPY.
We enjoyed stay from Jan 31st - Feb 3rd 2012.
Reaching Hotel :
On Reaching Ooty main Charring Cross Signal, Driving directions provided by Mr. Rohit was perfect and no trouble in identifying route towards SHERLOCK.
Small Patch of Muddy road and Fork Turns to reach SHERLOCK can be bit of trouble for NOVICE Car Driver. While taking this turn you might feel were are you heading..as Roads are not good...But as soon as you reach the Entrance you will forget everything about trouble you / your driver had to reach here.
Natural Air, Scenic Beauty, Awesome weather to welcome you...and Offcourse Best people to give you WARM Welcome.
Con: Small patch of muddy road and sharp fork turn can lead to trouble.
Regarding Property :
Best of Best in Ooty, Nice maintained Lawn, Nice Cozy Rooms, Fireplace, Nice Dinning area and main factor 24x7 HOT WATER. Just wait for 2 Minutes and you get HOT Water.
Con : Electrical Socket Points , Door Handles need to be replaced / repaired @ least for 2 Luxury Rooms were we stayed
Regarding Staff :
This all people starting from Guard, Chef, Staff and Managers all are very down to earth and makes you feel as if you are @ home. Everyone with smiling and caring nature. No fake behavior.
I would like to give special THANKS to Mr. Rohit, Mr. Felix, Mr. Vinod and all the staff @ Sherlock who made my Parents and mainly my Infant very comfortable. I would really thanks to Manager who allowed us to cook for our infant which is very rare in any other property.
Special thanks for each and every staff of Sherlock who made me pleased with my decision of getting parents to your property.
Regarding FOOD :
Bit expensive but yes truly worth for your spend. You can surely try any Indian dishes @least in Dinner were both Food and Night Ambiance makes you special.
Breakfast : Complimentary and got gud options.
Con: If you reach by 3PM, Kitchen is closed so better you get something with you for LUNCH.
Awesome view from Lawn and best if you stay @ Luxury Rooms which has Direct view to Nature ..Nice Fireplace inside the room which makes you more cozy and comfortable in chilly weather.
Overall, I would recommend to visit this property if you really want to enjoy Nature, Food and Nice Stay.
Recommendation to Sherlock Team : Need improvement in following areas
Recommendation to Readers : Confirm your accommodation in LUXURY Rooms. You wont repent on my advise
1. Road towards Sherlock
2. Electrical points , Door Handles, Bulb Replacement -> Few maintenance check required.
3. WIFI - Hardly any range from inside the room
Best of Luck all of you and Thanks for making our Trip Memorable.
