“Good stay but not food”
Reviewed 10 July 2011

budget hotel.. maintained but old construction ... so damp in rainy season .... small worms are everywhere ....so avoid in July-Aug.
otherwise a comfortable stay with lake view... the terrace garden is lovely....
they have no room service, no boy to carry your luggage... even you have to collect your morning tea yourselves..
don't go for any kind of food here. rate is too high and quality is worst....... they charged 104 for 4 slices of bread and two omelets...... better go to any near by restaurant like city palace/ paper and salt or somewhere else.

Location is good. It overlooks the lake and is walking distance (200m west) from the central bus station. There is a nice terrassed area when you can sit and get a view. A common area in the main house is also socialable.

Rooms are decent with hot water available in the mornings.

Breakfast is not included. The food is fine, although there are better options in town.

The owner is friendly, organised and helpful. The rest of the staff only speak a little english.

Room Tip: Perhaps compare with the neighbouring hotels

Reviewed 16 February 2011

We stayed for 4 nights at reflections and found it to be a really good budget guest house. It is out of the main town a bit - on the plus side, this means it is quiet, but it is a bit of a hike into the main town to find an internet cafe etc, but we didn't mind. It overlooks the lake, so sitting outside our room in the afternoons we had a lovely view and it was very relaxed. Don't be put off by the mixed review in Lonely Planet in regards to the service, we found the manager and staff to all be really helpful. It is very well run, you can get food there at any time until 8.30PM and all the costs of everything are clearly indicated on the menus, so it is very convenient. Our room was clean, a little small, but we paid 600Rs a night, so we were happy with our room for that price (breakfast and other food etc extra). You get hot water for showers in the morning, which is essential in Ooty, as it can get chilly! Our room was warm at night. So overall it was a nice place to stay.

We arrived at Ooty at 8pm and headed to the Hotel Sweekar, where we had a reservation - we turned up and it was just awful - so we hot-footed it to Reflections, and here, we were offered a basic room, but it was clean, and had hot water, and was generally good value for money. The ladies of the house looked after us very well, recommending us a day of trekking in the Ooty countryside (much better than Ooty town!) and we had a fantastic day. Reflections also offers simple, home cooked meals, and we ate all our meals here - we spent more money on food than the room when we came to settle up! So, all in all, basic - but good value for the price you pay, and good food. Speaking to other guests who had rooms high up, their rooms came with TV's and views of the lake - so if you go here, it is probably best to reserve in advance and try and get one of these. The common room has a fire place (fire wood has to be paid for, but easily shared with others), and was a great place to meet other travellers.

Basic but clean rooms, location is ok just a short walk into town. Hot water is available in the morning - and any other time for a small charge – note you also need to pay for some other extras such as toilet rolls, but the value for the room itself is good. The lady who runs it for the owner is sweet and helpful. You can organise a trek from here with Anthony who was informative and an all round nice guy. The trek was great too.
