We stayed here for two nights on our way to and from Ooty. We were traveling on the old steam train from Mettupalyam so broke the journey in each direction here. The guide book told us that there is no reason to go to Coimbatore if not for business, I disagree, there is this hotel. You could go there for a long weekend, never leave the hotel and have had a fine time. Or, if your partner/ spouse has business in Coimbatore go along too and enjoy the hotel whilst they work!
Reception, the check in and out (twice) etc was excellent professional, efficient and friendly. In fact I was traveling with an idli steamer, long story, and they kept it for me whilst I was in Ooty.
The room was excellent, spotless, comfortable, with everything you would expect and require. Bathroom was very nice too.
The restaurants are good, we ate in both, and breakfast is good too. However of the two the Red Pearl restaurant was exceptional. It is mainly Chinese food, but beautiful food, very like the Chinese restaurant in the Oberoi in New Delhi for quality. The service was also excellent with the restaurant manager suggesting we took half portions of certain dishes to be able to try more dishes, he was a true professional.
The pool is fabulous, big so that you can get a proper swim, with good pool service, hence we did not go out. There is also an excellent spa.
