Hill station. British era colonial building. Sherlock Holmes theme. What more to ask for?! Bonus is a great view, especially sipping coffee in the lawn watching the clouds move from Conoor to Ooty and great food. Our room was next to the kitchen and the staff were a very boisterous lot! They seemed to enjoy their job. I loved that...

My husband, our golden retriever and I went to stay at Sherlock in Dec 2016 for 3 days. The garden room that we got was lovely, the food was fabulous, Sanjay, Shabnam and the rest of the staff are very nice. Sherlock is a awesome place and we had a fantastic holiday there. Going back definitely.
