We stayed at Sinclair's for 2 nights, although checkin time is 12pm, we were allowed to checkin at 10, the stay was very comfortable. There is daily housekeeping and room service available. The restaurant is amazing! The food was very homely. There was breakfast buffet available and at other times we can pick between buffet or any food we want. The staff was very friendly, helped us out with all travel/stay queries, we even got travel services arranged by them at right price and very quickly. The best part for us was the location, it's located on Dodabetta, it's very near to the peak, tea factory and adventure sports. Highly recommend staying at Sinclair's.

Rooms were average. We booked a room with a forest view. Food was delicious. The restaurant staff were polite and courteous unlike the front office staff. Room heater hair dryer on demand. This property has a deck in the lobby area where you get amazing view

Don’t go to Sinclair while seeing the website, the website photo has no connection with the reality, this photo was taken 30 years ago as per their staff.I was really disappointed when I reach the property. If you don’t have the expectation, Sinclair will be fine option in Ooty. Food , services, cleanliness & staff are really good. They didn’t provide us proper itinerary plan, that’s another weaker side.

Dear Sir, Thank you for your review. We are happy to know that you we were able to live up to your expectations in all areas of service – rooms, food, and hospitality. We are saddened that you found shortcomings in our property which stands in contrast to the feedback we generally get from our guests. While there may be some deficiencies, the way you have portrayed is seemingly incorrect as will be borne out by many reviews of guests who visited us recently. Also we may point out that the photographs on the website are actual unedited ones. We look forward to welcoming you again to Sinclairs Retreat Ooty. We also invite you to visit seven of our other properties at Gangtok, Siliguri, Darjeeling, Dooars, Burdwan, Ooty and Port Blair. The Sinclairs team will be pleased to serve you.

I recently visited Ooty after years and I must say my holiday was amazing thanks to Sinclairs. Mr.Sanyal and his team ensured my stay was comfortable. The staff is very courteous. Chef Sovan and his team would daily prepare delicious food. The view from the hotel is breathtaking. My room had the city view which was beautiful seeing the clouds descend by evening. Surrounded by nature its a lovely place to have peaceful stay. The hotel is close to the city and the drive to the hotel is also amazing.
