Hotel has all basic amenities but felt not worthy of the money spent. Eg. Indoor swimming pool should have temperature control. Just not possible to enjoy the pool. Also, bathrooms has the bathtub but hotel service not providing stopper. How can we use the bathtub then 😂 Overall avg experience.

Visiting the town of ooty is a must in any tourist's calender. I stayed at the famous monarch hotel. Staff was cordial and attentive, but the hotel had a very used look. Maintenence could really be improved. Rooms were quite old, paint was coming off. I don't recommend this hotel.
