This was a property with old English charm, true to its name! The views of the rolling Nilgiris were spectacular! The lush green porch like extended was a delight to sit at and enjoy these views over hot cups of coffee and tea. Service was great. The only downside was that we had to keep hiring expensive auto rickshaws to...

Very much an "English" style hotel, well suited to the feel of the Ooty countryside. It's a bit out of town, and a lonnnnng walk up hill (or an auto ride, but I like my walking) but such a beautiful and sophisticated little hotel. Amazing service, quaint little rooms and stunning views. If the price is within your budget then...

We stayed at Sherlock hotel for 3 nites and had a memorable experience. It is a cozy little place on a hillock away from all noise n traffic. With burning fire places n a very warm n British time charm this place is lovely. The staff n service was very good n food was great.

Sherlock is an absolutely beautiful and well maintained property. I was expecting a room in the main building but they led us to a room which was outside their property. It was a four room unit, two rooms down and two just above it. We were given a room at the lower level. In the evening common areas like the...

There is a fireplace in the room and you get a hot water...

Sherelock is on the tiger hills, to find that hotel is difficult for first time. Tar toad till hotel is okay but from the hotel main entrance gate adventure starts, you should be a good driver. Hotel don't have dormitory for drivers and drivers have to go to town for night stay. I suggest they should have some place for...

Pros: Really liked the location of the hotel. The staff are accommodating and friendly and they agreed for an early check in and late checkout. Cons: Food seemed little pricey. Though the hotel has a good view since it is located on top of a small hill, unless you have a vehicle its difficult to commute.

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...
