Hi Kumaran. It was great pleasure to have a stay here. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Except some power cut offs and remote location you will enjoy this place. Specially Kumaran sir hospitality.

Kumar and his family get 5 gold stars for service and hospitality. No one will take better care of you in Ooty. They serve an amazing breakfast and provide purified drinking water and hot water in a thermos for your room. The room was clean and comfy with excellent hot water ( just give it time to heat up). The area is quiet and the little garden is nice.
The only thing to be aware of is the location... it is about 5 km outside the town. If you have your own transportation then this is not a problem at all, however if you are relying on tuk tuks it will be expensive. Tuk tuk prices are higher in hill stations so it is 200-250 one way from the house into town where the sites and restaurants are. We are on a backpacker budget so we walked back and forth most of the time- it is possible but not ideal at all. Also noted there are no restaurants or stores anywhere nearby so you either need to stay in town all day until dinner (which is the option I recommend) or try to order from zomato or swiggy from the house. The problem with the food delivery is a) every time we did this the food we got was absolutely terrible. Worst food we’ve had in all of India. b) if the power goes out/internet is down then you can’t order.
I will say one of our walks to town was very scenic and broken up nicely by sights. You can walk around the little village above to the Tea Factory and from there down hill to the botanical gardens.
All in all a fantastic place to stay if you have a vehicle or a generous budget!

Most affordable and well spaced pleasant location with clean and clear rooms. I am overwhelmed by the service and cost is also affordable for a middle class family. My relatives mostly felt like home coming when we stayed there.

Kumaran cottages was one of the best experiences I had in ooty because of its location, rooms, price, food. Everything was perfect. A must visit! The owner helped us with the scooty renting, the booking of cab, everything. And the best part of the cottage was at night. Quiet and peaceful
