Very much enjoyed our stay at Sherlock. Great views, cozy homestay feeling, good service and food. A bit out of the way of the town but therefore quiet and relaxing. Drinking Gin&Tonics (bring your own!) in the living room and falling asleep by the fireplace - very unique experience.

The road from Ooty to this spectacular setting was horrendous with a basic single track pot holed and barely passable for two vehicles on most of the journey and left much to be desired. But the situation and views when we finally reached the hotel were stunning. We had a room with a view of the garden and the mountains...

Sherlock is on top of Tiger Hill and although it takes some effort driving up to the hotel (c'mon, Sherlock, get that access road improved), it is totally worth it. Sherlock is quiet, uncrowded, clean and beautiful. Make sure you take the rooms with the fireplace in winter. These rooms also have the most spectacular view from across the garden...

we enjoyed our stay here and the wood fire in our room and hot water bottles made for a cosy nights sleep. The view from the property is spectacular and the rooms are very clean. There is a large menu to choose from the only issue being during our stay you were unable to order from the continental menu. Breakfast...

We picked Sherlock after seeing the reviews on Tripadvisor, and as usual, were not disappointed. Pros: 1. The location is just amazing - atop a hillock that overlooks Ooty town, bringing you closer to the clouds and far from the madding crowds 2. The food was excellent. Their white chocolate mousse, especially, was scrumptious. Definitely recommended. Cons: 1. The rooms...

I recently had been to Sherlock for 2 nights in Winter of 2014. It's an excellent hidden little gem in Ooty. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms may look old but it's an old English charm that works. Sherlock themed hotel! View is amazing and the best USP of this hotel. The road leading to hotel is very...
