“Nice hotel (not bad... not very good)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012

This is just an OK hotel. We choose this hotel since almost all other good hotels/resorts were full. I was satisfied with the services provided. Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Rooms and bathrooms were neat and clean and well arranged. Staffs were helpful. Fans are not installed in any room and when asked receptionist informed that it is like that in all other hotels in Ooty. Since it was cold enough, not having fan in the room did not bother us. One more thing is there is no lift provided. Standard and deluxe rooms are almost identical in size and you get only some cosmetic additions in deluxe room, which in my opinion is not worth the extra money you have to shell out. Felt that food is little expensive as you can get much better food for the same price from other hotels. It is conveniently located. parking space is limited but the security did a good job in making sure that those who are staying gets space for parking (during lunch time there were lot of people coming to the restaurant). The security on duty was very helpful and friendly.

Based on the reviews we booked this hotel through makemytrip .com to stay for 2 nights.They charge 2400(including taxes) for deluxe room which is very small and no fan, no AC,no room heater.You need to pay 400 per night for room heater and breakfast is not included.In room blankets are also very cold we couldn't sleep and windows are not airtight so room will be very cold you have to pay 400 and take room heater.Moreover Bed is making lot sound even if you sit and move,when we call front desk guys they are telling they will fix it next day.Don't temp to book this hotel by seeing lesser fares.for this money you will get better rooms in ooty.Best part of this hotel is location which is walkable distance from botanical gardens and market.Food is not bad,but service is very bad.This is just average hotel.we are not disappointed completely.

Room Tip: Better opt for honey suite and royal suite they are worth the money.

We booked this hotel after reading reviews online and we were not disappointed. Rooms are good and big, though the Honey suite is on basement, which means not very good view from the room. Hotel is situated very near to the botanical garden and ooty lake, main market is just 5min. walk, which was a plus point, u don't have to take out ur car for these places. We hired a cab from the travel desk of Ponmari to go to conoor, the service was good enough and prompt. Hotel is attached with a spa, gym and restaurant. Food in the restaurant was very good but pricey too! Simple omlette(full fry) and 2slices of bread costs 70Rs here, which was ridiculous, u can get that for 10-20Rs in Mumbai!!!
Bathrooms are clean. The TV in our room no.301 had a loose electricity connection, due to which it wasn't starting, if at all it started, it used to get switched off on own.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay here, and had a nice time! Surely will recommend for others.

Room Tip: Do not go for the basement rooms.

Very pleasant hotel to stay, we stayed there for a night, the rooms were neat. It looked hygenic, thougth the price was expensive. It was worth staying in a cozy, comfortable room. Our room had a very scenic view. The only negative mark would be that , we did not have hot water to bathe, the water in the wash basin hotter than the one from the tap.Nice to stay and nice roo,

Room Tip: Super deluxe rooms are excellent

Hey these guys after doing our online booking payments say that we have to pay taxes for our room. The TVs were small and channels not coming clear. No fans, no air-condition, no swimming pool, no Jacuzzi, no steam bath. No hot water to have bath. In the hotel, food is overpriced not worth it. The receptionists were not co-operating nor helping if we had any problem.
