Things didn't start well with being offered a room we hadn't booked, so that we spent one night in a dark, dingy, damp standard room. This was not the fault of the manager, Shiva, but their external booking system. Shiva did all he could, as did all the staff, to make up for this, and were very attentive and solicitous...

Had a great experience there. Go for the cottage rooms which have a small sit-out area. Don't go for the rooms which open out in dinning area. The only issue we faced was the cold(freezing). The no of heaters were limited and we had to do with the heat from the fireplace. Ask for the heater in advance. The hotel...

Excellent food, breath-taking scenery and extremely courteous staff! Sherlock in the Nilgiris is a retreat that promises utmost relaxation in the lap of mother nature. We had a great 'downtime' unwinding in this small and cozy resort that is modeled on the theme of Sherlock Holmes. You would find portraits and caricatures hung on the walls depicting adventures of Sherlock...

I went to Ooty with a friend during the month of February and made a booking for this hotel about a week before I made the trip. Through TripAdvisor, I saw that this property was a perfect example of a hill top scenic place. A kind of place that is ideal for Ooty. I was not at all disappointed when...

Very much enjoyed our stay at Sherlock. Great views, cozy homestay feeling, good service and food. A bit out of the way of the town but therefore quiet and relaxing. Drinking Gin&Tonics (bring your own!) in the living room and falling asleep by the fireplace - very unique experience.

The road from Ooty to this spectacular setting was horrendous with a basic single track pot holed and barely passable for two vehicles on most of the journey and left much to be desired. But the situation and views when we finally reached the hotel were stunning. We had a room with a view of the garden and the mountains...

Sherlock is on top of Tiger Hill and although it takes some effort driving up to the hotel (c'mon, Sherlock, get that access road improved), it is totally worth it. Sherlock is quiet, uncrowded, clean and beautiful. Make sure you take the rooms with the fireplace in winter. These rooms also have the most spectacular view from across the garden...
