This family run guest house is a little treasure. The house itself is over 165 years old, dating back to the times when Ooty was a real hii station. The current owners work really hard to keep this guesthouse working well. The garden is absolutely immaculate. The room we were in had all necessities, good hot water, lovely thick blanket on top of the duvet, and they also provided an electric blow heater. Although they are not a restaurant, they rustled up some really good veg curry, rice and dahl for us. Breakfast was adequate including toast and an omelette. Most of all, they are really helpful - at the last moment we had a need for a wheelchair, and despite being in a very small town, they managed to procure one for our use. Thank you so much, a very good stay.

Seven of us went to ooty and stayed in 'Bouganvilla Resort' for 3 days. We had a great experience and enjoyed the stay there. The food was very good and we enjoyed different varieties of food. Their services was quick and prompt.. The location of the resort is very good as it is surrounded with eyes warming sceneries. Last but not least the camp fire was the thing which we enjoyed the most.

Bouganvilla - peerless and magnificent .A Lovely Resort with exceptional hospitality . We had to plan to spend year in Ooty but was confused in choosing the best place to stay . One of friend recommended Bouganvilla and i also went through reviews in TripAdvisor. Was well satisfied with the reviews . On contacting Manager Tiyaghu - who gave meticulous holiday package information through phone and email. This place is the place which you need to stay in ooty . Warm welcome was provided with exceptional hospitality and food. The cooks Lawrence , srinivasan surprise you every time with excellent home made food which is not found anywhere in ooty (We did check out few restaurants in ooty which is definitely not up to standards of food provided here ). Tea and coffee in the cold weather is a smoothing experience.

The guide cum chauffeur - Babuji - This man knows Ooty like back of his hand and smoothly drives well and carefully . There two sides to ooty - Normal ooty and Real Pristine ooty . Only Babuji can show you the Real Pristine ooty. The places which he took us made us to feel the city life in concrete Jungles is definately complicated . Roads which he drives through to the Safari and doddabetta are filled with eucalyptus in the air . He can answer almost all the questions regarding ooty and his most of his answers is going make you say woww.With this guide cum chauffeur 3 days is not going to be enough he surprises you with unknown facts of ooty which i have never found in any history book .

Apart from there dont miss the Boat rides , toy train in ooty lake . Chocolates chocolates , chocolates . On the whole is excellent trip which was made pleasant by a person Named Babuji . Thanks Babu na . We will definitely come back in few months .

My family stayed in this cosy and comfortable resort from 25th Dec 2014 to 27th Dec 2014. We booked 2 rooms which were like 2 individual cottages with front lawn. Neat, spacious and comfortable place to stay in the town 10 mins from the Botanical Garden and yet peaceful and quiet. The food was very tasty and homely south Indian variety. Mr. Thiagu who manages this place is a very courteous and helpful host. His staff is also very prompt with room service and arrangements. The family gives it a big thumbs up and would like to visit and stay again in this place. The place and rooms are exactly like the photos depicted. We even had a bon fire on the last day of our stay. Thanks to Mr. Anand who helped us with the reservations. Hope to visit this beautiful location again.

We had booking of 2 Deluxe Suites confirmed from Goibibo. On 2nd April, we called up hotel manager (Tyagu) 2 hours prior to reaching hotel and were extremely surprised to know that there were no rooms booked in our name! Hotel manager said that there was some problem between them and Goibibo, so they don't have any room booking intimation with them. t. He also suggested that as a good gesture, he will help us in getting rooms in another hotel. And then he just didn't pick up my calls. We reached at 8pm along with my parents (75 Years & 65 Years old), child, tired after a 15 hour journey from Mumbai, and found that the manager and the other asst. manager - Ganesh- who was supposedly just 1-day old at Bouganvilla - had gone home without any intimation to any of the Hotel staff.

Manager did not respond to our call!! Our patience gave in. We called from hotel kitchen staff number and he picked up and said he was unwell. We contacted Goibibo and the Goibibo customer care executive connected us to the hotel manager. After lots of arguments and pressuring on lodging a police complain against him, (for almost 1&1/2 hours) we could push the hotel manager to book another better hotel (Gem Park) 5km away from this hotel and fully paid by Bouganvilla.

I also checked the hotel's mail box on their computer, which was left open, and found that there was booking and payment confirmation mail sent to the hotel in Feb'2016 (We traveled on 2nd Apr'2016) and it was also received by the hotel. I wonder how can someone lie so much?

Finally we managed to go to our room at 10:30pm and could just manage to have dinner at Gem Park (Again paid by Bouganvilla :)).

Thank for the courtesy of sponsoring our dinners for both the nights but that hardly mitigates the bad taste we experienced at Bouganvilla after a tiring 15 hrs journey.

Not sure if it was under-table transaction by the manager or sheer disrespect for customer bookings, it would have turned into a major fiasco for anyone else, who wouldn't have managed to put up a strong fight.

My parents and I stayed at the Bouganvilla resort for 4 nights in mid-June 2013. The resort is tucked away amongst a tea plantation and local homes away from the town centre. This made our stay rather idyllic and peaceful. If you are a keen walker, you could probably walk to the train station and town centre. Regardless, a vehicle is generally necessary to see the sites around Ooty. A word of caution, however, as the approach road from the main road to the resort is not very good. In spite of arriving much later than expected (around 11pm due to traffic), we were greeted warmly by the staff who promptly assisted us to our room. We had the room pictured in the above photo with an extra bed. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. Hot water was available 24/7 and there was a heater in our room. My mother commented that the room and resort looked just as it did in the photos. Breakfast was included and typically consisted of two different South Indian dishes which changed each day e.g. dosa, idli, pongal etc. We also had our dinner at the resort on two nights, which can be arranged on request. We tried their menu on one night and requested some special dishes such as malai kofta on the second night which they were happy to oblige. All the meals we had were tasty and fresh. The main thing that marred the end of our stay somewhat were some power failures on the last night of our stay which continued into the morning - we were informed by staff that there were some issues with the generator which were being attended to.

The staff are a real credit to the resort. We were always greeted warmly by all staff. They were all always courteous, ready to lend a helping hand and ensure that we were enjoying our stay. The manager, Mr Thiagu, was also very helpful in assisting us to plan our sightseeing trips around Ooty. All in all, I would definitely recommend staying at the Bouganvilla resort.

Lovely British time bungalow converted into a resort kind of a set up. Room was spacious with king size bed, a separate sit out area, clean and modern wash and the main door opening into a well maintained lawn.

Booked after reading through the reviews on TripAdvisor, most of which truly depict this wonderful place Bouganvilla. As lovely as this place is the people managing it need special mention. Manager - Mr. Thiagu, Caretaker - Anand and Anand (yes two lovely people with same name), Cook - Lawrence and Pannerselvam - amazing people who leave no stone unturned to make your stay a memorable one. Lipsmacking home style food was much more than we expected in a resort like place and with right customization for li'l ones it was icing on the cake.

Right from getting NMR train tickets and finding routes to suggesting children focused itinerary, everything was just perfect. Bauji - The taxi driver and guide at the resort is well versed with the city (though we just took suggestions and didn't really use his services).

For family travelling with kids, Thunder World, a new amusement park kind of a place is a must visit. Has a Dinosaur park with life size models that roar, move, turn, have breathing action. A Camera house that has collection of models of various cameras from oldest to latest. Dinosaur ride is the most sought after activity by the li'l ones.

Don't go to Bouganvilla if you expect a round the clock bell boy availability, wide selection of items in the menu, elaborate hotel like services. Choose only if you are looking for an experience beyond the regular hotel stay, a very cozy and comfortable stay in a relaxed and calm environment - all this bundled under the roof of a bungalow with a colonial charm.
