“Worst guest house in Ooty-”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2011

I have never seen such a worst guest house in life, staying 4 days would make you feel like staying in Jail..you will be charged even for tiolet paper and almost everything..so irritating people would be there to pinch you....owner lady is so greedy and cleaver. if you will stay one whole day..your mood would get off and feel like running from there....
I will suggest you to live at any place in ooty but not there...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2011

Stayed in Ooty for some time and at this guesthouse for a few days. I liked the layout of the place but sometimes all the stairs were a hassle. The bed in our room was just so wet all the time, partly because of Ooty's climate but I dont think the owners of this place kept up with drying things. There were dead mosquitoes squashed all over the walls. They do have breakfast and it was good most of the time but in the commons area the flies are horrible. Flies all over. Id recommend the YWCA in Ooty more than this place

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

4 of 5 bubbles 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.
