We stayed here overnight so that we could catch the early morning train to Ooty. It was fine for the price. We had drinks in the basement bar before dinner - it was very dark, giving the impression of an illicit drinking den. They did serve nibbles with the drinks, though, including, bizarrely, a huge plate of sliced cucumber! We...

Many have written about the facilities being run down and smelly but far more offensive was the dishonest treatment we received from the reception staff. We were told by the receptionist that we had to obtain a train ticket to Ooty the day before we traveled to Ooty and that they had a tuktuk driver who could help us obtain...

I suppose this place is okay if you have to stay in Mettupalayam for a night in order to catch the miniature train up to Ooty, but don't be hoping for much. The staff were rude, the room was barely tolerable (very strong smell of cleaning products, old, grungy, stark, etc.), the lobby noise kept us awake, the food in...

We stayed at EMS Hotel Mayura for one night after arriving at night with the toy train from Ooty. We made a reservation via phone, which was quite easy. Hotel stuff was very friendly, the room service was quick and good and the room itself very big, clean and not too noisy even if the hotel is located in the...

There are only two taxes on accommodation in India, luxury tax and service tax. Luxury tax of 12.5% is applicable on the published/printed tariff. Service tax of 7.42% is applicable on the actual price you pay for the room. So, I was given a room for 1,500 and was quoted that with tax the total would be 1,800. Which is...

The room was looking good, but it was very smelly. Here are my comments: - I stayed here with my family, the moment I entered the room it was like a group of people had drinks and smoke. I had to open the window for a while to get a little fresh air. - I was very thirsty when I...

We reached METTUPALAYAM from MUNNAR via COIMBATORE late at night on 24.05.2016. OOTACAMUND was another THREE AND A HALF HOURS OF DRIVE BY CAB and so we decided to stay put for the night at METTUPALAYAM itself. We were lead by word of mouth to this hotel and we were lead to believe that it was the most decent place...

Had no choice but to stay here for the early train to Ooty. Arrived very late at night. Charge for double room rates were 900 but then 300 is added for 'taxes', taking the total charge for a dirty, basic, non-ac room to 1200rupee. Despite paying in cash. The owner was clearly aware that it was the only sleepable accommodation...

We wanted to check out Black Thunder and so stopped at this hotel. The hotel is affordable, decent rooms with in-house restaurant. You can walk to the market area which is the haven for fruits and vegetables from Ooty at good prices.

We stayed here because of its convenience to the Nilgiri Railway and found it quite adequate. It seems that the hotel staff are not fully acclimatised to dealing with Western visitors as was shown by having about 8 people serving a buffet dinner and the intensity of the efforts made by the porters. It was certainly reasonably comfortable and not...
