Our trip was very short, but the staff made sure that we have good experience. Would definitely go back to this pretty hotel as the food was good, so was the view and also the staff. A lot to do if you are going with family or friends.

We had lunch here after taking the heritage train journey from Ooty. I just love this place right from food preparation, ambiance, service and grandeur. They do some local dishes in addition to the usual menu and I would highly recommend that.

Beautiful property away from the hustle bustle of Ooty city. Amazing gardens where one should ideally spend some time admiring the best of flowers in the morning. Picture perfect view from the gardens as well. Nice buffet breakfast as well. Very courteous hotel staff. Would love to visit again.
