“Lost in the Clouds”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2011

The Coonoor Club is not a Resort or a Hotel. It’s a private club and one can book a room only through a member of the club or through affiliated Clubs. Being a Club they have their own rules and dress code (collared T shirts, Shoes etc.).

The charming Main Club house reminds me of the bygone British colonial era. However, it looks worn out and badly maintained. There are six rooms and they are basic. The bathrooms are unclean and far below acceptable standards of hygiene.

The kitchen offers a fairly wide spread covering Indian, Continental and Chinese cuisine. The quality is erratic ranging from ‘unacceptable’ to ‘excellent’.

Service – Nobody here will try to please you; it’s as though it does not matter. So don’t have any expectations. Food needs to be ordered hours ahead. Nothing comes quickly.

The ambience is pleasant and peaceful. Bird watchers will have a great time here. Offering pleasant views of the near by town in the valley, the Club is Located within 200 meters from SIMs Park and 2 kms from the Coonoor bus stand.

The staffs are polite and friendly. However, it was annoying when many of them pestered us for tips when we checked out.

We met a number of Club members, who were cheerful and mingled eagerly with us. However, we had the misfortune of interacting with the Secretary of the Club (Nagaraj - I think) who acted like he owned the club. Spoke arrogantly to the guests. Petty and trivial, we were constantly told where to stand, where not to and treated with contempt. It was as though this guy was doing us a favour by letting us stay in the Club ! Arrogance personified.

Should you stay there? Only if you want to be treated like dirt.

After I booked this place, I had a lot of apprehension as had not seen many review about this place. But once we checked-in, found the rooms and toilets were clean.

Coonoor Club has only 6 rooms and they are well maintained. Located near Sims Park, the club is isolated from tourist crowd. It is not crowded as the club is open only to members and affiliated club members.

The food was good and service was excellent. Price-wise Coonoor club will not burn a hole in your pocket.

The club has a tennis court, Indoor badminton court, table tennis, cards room, Billiards table and Library.

The club can tie-up with some travels for cab service as i found it hard to hire a cab for site-seeing.

Overall, we enjoyed the club, its garden. nice place to relax and enjoy the fresh air.
