hi, had gone for anniversary on 23-26 june from bangalore. had actually booked their honeymoon package.
ended up reaching at 5 am but were checked in within 5min, though in a different room from pic but since we were gng on day tour did not mind. first day was ooty-connore trip. nice one with a friendly careful driver. enjoyed it though reached late eve at boathouse & boating had ended. back at hotel got room changed for a better view, no hassles, quickly. rooms were clean, comfortable, cosy with fresh bed linen, hot water.
2nd day was filmi chakkar trip. enjoyed at pine forest, rest of trip was ok. driver was helpful but a bit rash. suggest u skip this tour as pykara falls had no water & boating was boring ( pedal boats were not available & speed boat had a closed cabin). had lunch at pykara falls which was horrible.none of hotels were clean. better to get food packed from ooty.
3rd day was free day, so again went to boat house. enjoyed. had lunch there only. food was ok. had noodles & fried rice. Revisited rose garden in the evening. a nice drizzile had set in. had a nice time.
since the package was over checked out & had kept bags at cloak room. departure was at 10pm, so decided to go fo shopping to ooty. this is part which we regretted as it started raining with slushy, dirty roads & nothing good to buy. ended up buying choclates at "jai's kingstar" ( many places with name "kingstar", tried them all but best was this one, situated beside domino's pizza). nice varieties with free samples, ended up purchasing many different types.
since had time to spare, came back to hotel & the helpful manager enquired & provided us with a room to rest & also summoned auto to reach bus stand.
over all, excellent hotel with good rooms, helpful & friendly staff. since had booked a package, had food at their sumukha's kitchen restaurant. food was really good (though only veg), nice decor( much better than the pics) reasonably priced compared to good hotels at bangalore with surprisingly quick service. suggest u enquire regarding spiceness of dish as got really spicy veg kadai on first day.
definately recommend staying in the hotel & food at their restaurant.
