Located on a pot holed track on outskirts of town. Don't believe the reviews you read. Our room was small and over crowded with furniture. Very dark, and the fireplace made the entire room smell like a coal. No hot water even after we asked for it to be fixed. Couldn't get the WiFi password from any of the staff....

When we reached the hotel, the very first expression from my 3-yr-old daughter was "beautiful !!!" - that says everything. Food was excellent - specially the continental dishes. Hospitality was also awesome. Rooms were neat and clean. Location wise also this is very good though I liked the surrounding beauty of different guest house in a tea estate in Coonoor...

The place is a little away from the hustle of city. On top of a hill and about 3 kms away from the main bus stand. One must either have their own vehicle of like us look for auto walas (easily available). They will typically charge 150 rs for one side trip. Now onto the hotel, property is very nice...

We decided to celebrate our anniversary in Ooty because we wanted to stay at Sherlock! Yup, it’s that kind of a place. And yes, we were not disappointed at all. But let me start at the beginning. My wife had discovered Sherlock while surfing for interesting places to stay in Ooty a couple of years ago. We saw the website,...

This hotel is located in a quite neighbourhood not too far from the city. The rooms are spectacular and have a unique old world charm. The staff are very friendly and courteous.
