    Great Location- amazing view of Ketti Valley, dilapidating property
    on Dec 25, 2017
    I would have give a 4 star or 5 star rating to this review if the property was maintained in proper condition. When we checked in, me and my wife were in a dilemma if we did the right thing by booking this property; after all it won the Tripadvisor Excellence Award in 2015. But I guess they have hardly tried to maintain it in the same way ever since. The good part of the stay was welcoming staff and they provided good service. The property itself is located in a convenient distance away from main Ooty town, at about 4 km away. We liked this since we did not have to bear the onslaught of the heavy holiday traffic because of the distance from the main town (We had gone on 3 day holiday and the city was overflowing with tourists). It is also a convenient 200 meters away from the Ooty- Conoor highway. The hotel is a converted old British Bungalow. You will find fire places inside the hotel (not used now because of the smoke they produced- as informed by staff). There are no views outside to any of the rooms- the older properties in the area have smaller windows to keep the cold out. You can request camp fire outside for Rs 500 an hour. The owners could take a note of the following for areas of improvement: - Cleaner linen - A TV in the room is not absolutely necessary but other equipment like a room heater and stocked mini bar is a must. - Most importantly, please do think of giving guests a control over when they want to use the water heater at their convenience, though the same was turned on for most of the time when we visited. We were travelling with a baby and this would help travelers like us. Though we did not face a situation when we needed the water at middle of night but the facility is always welcome. Overall it was a good stay but the property itself is not so welcoming if we chose to stay in the hotel itself for the entire duration of our stay; we were out for most of the time. Special thanks to Mr. Sourav and his team for making the stay good one despite the shortcomings. Food was also good at the hotel; a pointer- order from the menu they provide. Note: Visitors can walk down to a view point from where they can see the train emerging from a tunnel down in the Ketti Valley. Lovedale station is 2 kms from the hotel on this road. Ask direction from the manager.... More

    Felt to be in resort all time :)
    on Nov 20, 2017
    We were five families stayed here in I-India, We all felt we were at our own resort or home. We didn't felt we were in between concrete walls. All setting in the resort pulled us to be in resort and enjoy the stay. The food was awesome and custom prepared for us. The main attraction is Mr.Sabi, Who treated us like family members, he knows in and out of Ooty. His directions were very helpful for us in side seeing. I recommend this place for stay in Ooty. In future this resort will be mine first choice in Ooty.... More

    A bit disappointed
    on Oct 4, 2017
    We had read so many reviews about this place. We were very eager to meet Mr.Sabi, the property owner. Unfortunately he was not available when we went. The people who were managing the place in his absence were not enthusiastic. We couldn't enjoy any of the activities mentioned in their site. We went to the nearby train tunnel with the help of locals(This was mentioned as an activity. Yet the hotel staff did not tell anything clearly). This was a disappointment. Apart from this, the rooms are good. They might get real cold. The first night, we wanted a room heater. We were able to manage the other nights without one. Heater costs INR 350 per night. The view from the property is amazing. The food is amazing. Would love to come back again to meet Mr.Sabi. I'm guessing the experience would be a different one with him around. ... More

    An old school charm around you..
    on Aug 14, 2017
    It's a beautiful British fashioned bungalows with cozy rooms and an warm ambiance. High roofs, low doors, wooden furniture, and Golden Ivy on a corner makes the interior simple yet traditional. They have an open garden area for soaking the sun. For a quiet stay, away from city-city and crowd. More on pics.... More
