Awesome property, Good Service and Good Food. People in reception is too good and very supportive. Very delicious Food they served during our stay. Buffet Breakfast had multiple choice. They should install electric heater as the wood fire is not sufficient. don’t use Agoda app to boom this hotel.

The mountain View and the scenic beauty definitely attracts the nature lovers. An excellent stay with great hospitality by the staff Bala, Ajith,Vinoth, Gopal, Asha,Prema and others will influences our desire to visit again. As this place is nearest to Ooty city centre, planning sight seeing around the city is easy and actionable.

Wonderful experience in “Sherlock”. The room allotted for us was really a good and private room. My kid and my pet had a lovely time. The warm welcoming by all the staff and Bala the manager was really friendly and great. Location - best in town and just on top of the hill makes it really a cold, quite, pleasant place to stay. The garden is well maintained by the gardener. Each and every plant, flowers are taken care. Food - No words to describe… awesome homely and nice food on request by Marshal (F&B manager) and his team. Thanks to —- my kid is was unwell on the night we checked in due to sudden change in temperature and had indigestion. Praveen the staff who was there for night shift, made sure he was with us all thru the night and provided room heater, hot water bag, and all kinds of support possible from his end. He also travelled with us to the hospital during the mid of night 1am and helped us a lot. Great team and thanks to Ajith, Bala, Praveen, Marshel and the complete team for a wonderful experience. Will surely visit again !!

Pros. Hospitality is at a whole new level. The staff will go out of the way to help you with anything. Big shoutout to Bala, Gopal, Pravin, Vinodh, Shivakumar. They also went out of the way to accommodate me the moment there was an empty room, given the fact that I had checked in to their hotel at 8.30am. The property is stunning. 150 year old British bungalow tucked atop a hill with breathtaking weather and views. Cons. 1. No laundry services. Very difficult to dry clothes. 2. The size of a standard room is small as compared to the price being charged. There is zero scope for room ventilation. 3. The tv is located pretty far from the bed making it quite difficult to look at it while lying down. 4. Road connectivity from the main road is bad because a particular stretch of the road is totally broken and in very bad condition. 5. There is no contact number to reach the hotel reception - it goes to the official office number of the group, which is absurd. 6. Being a British style theme, sausages are a must for breakfast. That was missing until the last day when it was served but was soggy. Also, they charge 450 plus tax for the breakfast which does not justify at all, given the spread.

We visited Sherlock fort 4 nights and took 2 rooms. 1 garden and one standard room. Garden room was one of a kind experience not because of the room as it is almost the same as but slightly larger than standard room but for the garden. I have not had such an experience before. The Staff's name Bala manager. Marshall. Ajith. Vinoth. Gopal. Asha. Prema were all' excellent. It is like having a butler service at your disposal. The made whatever we asked for breakfast. The view was just mind-blowing which looked like it's own view point. Now the main drawback is the road which goes to the hotel is a bit narrow and unpaved. If you have a good driver and a big car it is not a issue but small cars could be tough. Apparpt from this one drawback we had a wonderful story.

A quaint and charming hotel nestled in hills and overlooking a breathtaking scenery. Highly recommended for people looking for old world charm. You will not be disappointed. The property is rustic & has the Sherlock Holmes theme carried out all through. It took us back in time. The food served at Mangifera was very delicious. We were lucky to have stayed at this hotel where the hospitality was above par. A huge thanks to Bala, Ajith, Vinoth, Gopal, Asha & Prema. A huge shout out to the ever smiling and humble Mr. Gopal. Thank you all for making our stay memorable. Bindhya
