Reviewed 28 March 2014

Stayed here for a day. Each room is named and we stayed in Hamlet. Hamlet had a small veranda with chairs to relax and have tea/coffee facing the lawn outside.
Spacious bathroom and TV was provided. We could not find any plug points for charing the mobiles, had to remove the bedside lamps and use that to plug and charge.
It has the fireplace with chimney and no extra charges for the fire. Johny is the person who helps you with these. Very friendly person.

This is located on top of a hill away from the traffic, crowd and noise. Yet very close to the down.
Just get down the hill you are close to collectors office in ooty, go up the hill and have a quiet stay and best view. If you get up early morning, you shall sit on the lawn and see the birds around.
Bullbull, sparrows and hummingbirds are commonly seen.

Very beautiful house which was constructed 150 years back, now converted into a place to stay. Good british style interiors, Glass house, dining room again with a british interiors.

One of the finest place for food. Many just walk in for food alone. Ask for the rooms facing the lawn and garden. There are rooms which are inside the dining area with little privacy.

Food is excellent.

Points to remember

1. No plug points for charging mobiles (one need to remove the bedside lamps and then plugin your stuff)
2. No mineral water bottles, local water served in flask.
3. Hot water available from 6:30 am/pm to 9:30 am/pm (during other time, you need to inform them)

We spent 3 nights here and very much enjoyed the atmosphere. The rooms do vary somewhat and I would recommend the deluxe rooms inside the main building as the best. Service was great, the restaurant has a great menu and everything we tried was excellent. Wifi sort of works around the lounge area but intermittent. Shekyr, the house keeper is a gem, always there to help and get your fire going in the evening and the live music in the evenings is unique. A great place to wind down for a few days.

Room Tip: Only go for the deluxe rooms

This is an atmospheric property in a nice location in the hills above Ooty. The lobby, lounge and restaurant rooms are full of antique furniture and very welcoming. The open fireplaces, lit at night, are a very nice touch. The menu in the restaurant was extensive, excellent value, and the food of very good quality.

The rooms, however, seem to vary in quality and comfort. The ones featured on the hotel's website look very nice; ours was somewhat less so. We did not have a view over the valley (some do have a partial view). The room was not quite as clean as we would have liked - some stains on the sheets, and the whitewashed walls were very dirty and desperately needed painting.

The quality and selection of food at breakfast was a little disappointing given how high quality the food at dinner had been (for example no fresh fruit or fresh fruit juice). However it was acceptable.

The staff were generally helpful and friendly, especially the housekeeper. There IS wireless internet (despite the hotel's website saying there isn't).

Overall we really enjoyed our stay; it was excellent value for money, a little rough around the edges, but perfectly acceptable for the price charged.

We had an exquisite lunch in the beautiful glass restaurant in the well kept garden of this nice hotel. Indian cuisine at its very best served by professionel and very kind waiters. We did not stay in the hotel but they showed us a couple of their rooms - British colonial style, very charming. When we ever go back to Ooty we shall definately book this hotel.

Well, for starters, it has been a year since our visit to King's Cliff and all I can fondly remember about the place is the courtesy that was extended to us and the wonderful food. The place, as such was under renovation mostly when we went there and our room was not that very comfortable. I loved the steak though.
