“Road from hell”
Reviewed 20 June 2012

Decent clean rooms but room service is lacking. The road leading to the hotel is atrocious and needs to be gravelled as a minimum. Away from busy Ooty so no noise. Food in hotel is average. Shouldn't be called a resort and more a hotel or inn.

Room Tip: Get rooms facing the hills.

Myself and my family (my wife and 1.7 year old kid) stayed at Fairstay for 2 nights and 3 days from 03-jun-2012 to 05-Jun-2012. They stay was really excellent.
We arrived at Ooty around 2 PM and called up Mr.Kumar for the directions. From Ooty Coonor main road to Fair Stay is really horrible road which is about 0.3 kms. We were greeted at the enterance of the hotel by Mr. Kumar and he handed over the key of the room. One of the staff helped in getting the luggages from my car to room. I was surprised the moment I entered the room. I could see a clean double bed the moment I entered the room. To the left there was a clean & tidy kitchen. Further to the room, the way lead to another spacious room which had a king sized double bed. It had a couple of good chairs to sit and and table. There was a TV and big cupboard. It had even a small refrigerator. There was a huge window along with a door. The door lead to a sit out with a couple of chairs and a table. This room had an another door which lead to the toilet which was clean and water geyser. Since the hotel was about 2 kms far from Ooty city it was calm. Outside the room there is a small play area for kids will all required stuff for the kids to keep them occupied for at least 3 to 4 hrs a day. The dining hall is situated at a stone throw distance for the rooms but still detached from all the rooms. All in all it was a very pleasant stay at the hotel, myself, my wife and my kid enjoyed the stay and will recommend all those who go to Ooty to stay in Fairstay even if you have bigger family as there is an extra room with double bed which can be utilised by parents or grown by 2 kids. In-fact I liked the hotel more than Ooty.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor have a good view from balcony.

I stayed with family in this property between 28th may - 30th may. We really enjoyed the stay at this place. It is excellent location It is about 2 k.m. away from main city and kids can really enjoy. nice food and good hospitality. Especially to mention Mr.Kumar and team who really kind and helpful on our entire stay.The rooms were absolutely clean n well maintained. The approach road the is bumpy and definitely need some maintenance for the same.

I had a really bad time at this Hotel. The access passage to the Hotel is quite bad - no proper roads for the last half kilometer. It is quite difficult to identify the hotel at night.They only have a dining area, only south Indian food, no restaurants far from any near by store, it is difficult without personal transportation.
The rooms are literally on road and lot of noise when traffic passes so no peace.

Only positive thing about the hotel is staff is very courteous and helpful.

Room Tip: Only choose this hotel if you have nothing and you have to go.

This resort is for you, if you want to spend some quality time with your family away from crowd, traffic noise and pollution.

This resort if for you, if you want to enjoy your mornings and evenings relaxing on balcony with cup of tea.

Resort is about 3 km from main city. Rooms are spacious and clean equipped with mini refrigerator, microwave. Resort has a play area for kids.

Resort staff is very friendly and courteous. Manager of the resort, Mr Kumar is very helpful and always reachable. Food and service is good.

They arrange cabs, if you need for sightseeing. Cab drivers are equally good.

A big YES from my side.
