Terrifying Experience although the property is ok
on Oct 31, 2019
Rowdy & drunk guests in the property, illegally allowed to stay. About six young men were allowed in for one night stay without entries being made in the Guest Records Book. They behaved like roadies till late night (Monday, 28th Oct). These persons went around the property throwing cigarette butts around, making loud drunken noises and generally causing nuisance.
It was a very disturbing scenario as we had six females in our group and in the isolation of the property anything could have happened. The situation was very alarming from the point of view of safety and security of all. I suspect such guests are allowed in by the caretaker who seems to make money on the sly and does not make entries of such guests in the record book.
I would suggest travellers to avoid this property which I had booked through Airbnb. Their representative lied to me about some charges which were demanded by the caretaker while checking out. Although she never mentioned that "kitchen changes" (Rs 1000/- per day, apart from the groceries, etc that we paid for) had to be paid by us, she insisted that that was told to me over phone. I was shocked by this since I expect Airbnb to mention any financial liabilities in writing.
Overall not a pleasant experience. Must avoid Airbnb as well as this property.

Visit this place only if you travel with atleast 15 people.Its so big and it cost around 35 thousand rupees. so that you can share easily among yourselves. this is located well within ooty and close to many tourist attractions
Nice Place for Family

We had visited this place as a group of 4 families and 4 kids ! A very nice place. Rooms seem to little be on the expensive side. Food was good. ensure that you inform the caretaker about the food early. Else you have to go elsewhere for food. Hospitality has to improve a lot ! Their lawn was good. Kids will enjoy the place. You can spend time playing carrots, TT and badminton. Road towards the property doesn't exist for about 100m ! And elders beware. You should climb 20steps and walk towards the property! Don't know if there is any alternative route leading to the property !
Good hotel - staff and homely food

Colonial style boutique cottages which are maintained well , good lawn and suitable for families. Food is excellent and is like home food. We were lucky that we were the only guests, so it was excellent privacy and felt like a vacation home. As there are 4 rooms in the cottage, if there is full occupancy , privacy can be an issue. Recommended for large families where all rooms can be occupied and also couples with small children as food can be customized without typical restaurant food varieties.
Away from the crowd

The best place to stay in ooty. Away from the traffic chaos and people. Best for family group. The manager cum cook is very friendly and helpful and cooks excellent vegetarian food.
It's a 150 year old British bungalow presently owned by a business man from chennai. Well maintained and still has antique furnitures and fixtures.
One of the best place in ooty with affordable rates. In season it's approximately 4000 with complementary breakfast. And off-season it's almost half of the price.
It's located just below Taj Savoy and Mallaya's bungalow(Tamilagam road)
Must stay place in crowded ooty.
