two words- Bed bugs!
on Nov 5, 2017
We booked a stay at this place in late October as we had business in the neighborhood. We were heartened by some of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor touting this place to be basic but clean. When we arrived, the place was empty with no other guests. The cook was away and they had a replacement who provided basic meals on request (but expensive for what was provided). Mr Stanley was helpful but unfortunately, none of this made up for the basic neglect of the property. It smelled of mildew, rooms were musty and damp as was the linen (which was not particularly clean) and worst of all, we were bitten by bed bugs. We did not recognize this for what it was until the 3rd night when we were covered in bites. Obviously, we checked out as soon as we could. Despite contacting the owners to apprise them of the problem, we did not receive any response. And this was consistent with the way they ran the place- relatively uninterested and uncaring. I would strongly recommend finding alternative accommodation.
Rooms were clean and good but people working there are thieves.

I was there in Dec 2016 first week. That was the time when the then chief minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalitha died . We arrived in the hotel the same day when this incidence occurred. but we were fortunate that the hotel staff helped us a lot. the food was homely and as per demand. The hotel is nice if your are concerned with low budget. Its really value for money hotel. Mr. Pink and Mr. Staneley are really helpful. The hotel is away from ooty, nearly 15 kms. Its good thing though, as you get a real feel of a hill station right in front of your hotel balcony. i will recommend room no. 304-A as it has nice view. Rooms are clean and tidy. what more you will expect in such a less cost. I will just say just book this hotel now.
Peaceful place to get away

We had a wonderful time at Pinewood. It's location is quite good, away from hustle and bustle of the city, amidst tea plantations. Rooms are modern, decently equipped and spacious. Home cooked is served and they do cater to special requirements- our request for Maggi for breakfast was fulfilled graciously and believe me, it was yummy.
Parking is no problem at all, there is space to park 8-10 cars safely.
Highly recommended if you are looking for best bang for money, good food, peaceful time to spend with family .
