The Monarch Hotel
Ranked #50 of 85 Hotels in Ooty
Reviewed 29 December 2011

We stayed for one night. The room was extremely dated and the bathroom had mildew and mould all over the the place. We stayed only one night and we didn't even take a shower because it was very dirty.

Instead of central heating, they provide a small space heater for the entire room .. very inadequate for the night time winter temps.

The food was very mediocre at the in-home restaurant. They could not keep the buffet items filled as they would only brind out small portions at time. This was true for both dinner and breakfast. The wait staff also were not attentive and when asked for a drink, the bill or even a simple glass of water, they would act as if they understood you, but the item would never come. It might be a language issue.

The one good thing I can say about the hotel is that it is on top of one of the many hills in the area and you have breathtaking sunrises and sunsets as well as a great view of Ooty. However, this is not enough for me to recommend this hotel one bit ... I would stay away.

We stayed at the Monarch for 2 nights. The bedrooms have a wonderful view over the valley and our room was clean and spacious with a wonderful balcony/room attached. For a western palate the breakfast was disappointing with cold fried eggs and not so good coffee. Also there was no hot water at any time during our stay. The garden is attractive and generally we found it a reasonable place to stay.

Overall it was a nice experience staying in this hotel.
the major plus is the location as it overlooks the ooty,and the view from the rooms are really good.
the negatives are the rooms are bit old stylish (but hygenic) and activities offered are not upto the mark.
But we had a woderfull trip out there and had fun.

Room Tip: If you plan tour around ooty and need a best stay then i would recommend this place.
