Had a fun trip to Coonoor with family. Was lucky that I booked ahead as the hotel was sold out. Rooms were spacious. Enjoyed a nice dinner at the restaurant and asked for room service for breakfast. Very cheerful friendly staff.

The hotel room has a great view. Basic room. Big. Clean. If it were rennovated I'm sure I would have had to shell out Rs.6000 for the room. Kids were thrilled to watch the train from the window and didn't mind climbing the stairs. Food is nice. Great to see that there is a fully stocked bar with my favourite...

Lift doesn't work. Restaurant is big and empty, but if you order food, they cook food and deliver to room in an hour. Food was good. Parking is big and empty. Bathroom taps were loose, and not very clean. The mug was broken.

We had seen excellent reviews on Trip Advisor which prompted us to book for this hotel but it was one of the worst experiences of my life, compounded by the callous attitude of Cleartrip through which the booking was made. 1. When we checked in we liked the hotel location and ambience 2. We were the only guests - three...

This is the 2nd time i stayed in Riga Residency, Wellington after May 2013. The property is located 3 kms away from Coonoor station and near to Wellington Station. It is one of the tallest buildings in Coonoor which you can see from the Wellington Station (towards Coonoor direction). It is definitely at a height from where you can view...

The Hotel was calm and trendy, the people there was of great support. Good place to stay to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Nilgiris. Situated away from Commercial Ooty makes it even more better. Good food and service.

This used to one of the best hotels in Ooty in the 90s and I was quite looking forward to visit again. That was a a bad decision. The place simply has gone to seed. There is no ambience whatsoever and it looks like a bunch of inexperienced people have taken over the management. The food was deplorable and had...
