Found a really wonderful place near the center of Ooty, but once you reach there it feels as if you are far away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist town. Sherlock hotel has its own charm in maintaining the vintage look and atmosphere of the place and the gardens are very beautiful and well maintained. The rooms are...

This was our 2nd visit to Sherlock. And we had an equally great stay this time too. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is beautiful. I just can not get enough of the lovely mountains. The rooms are simply lovely with very nice wooden furniture and an actual functional fireplace. It gets quite cold if it rains...

This was perhaps the best stay I have had at a hotel all my life. The property was breathtakingly gorgeous. Elegantly Victorian, every corner was tastefully done up. The location wins it extra brownie points - it was a 2ish Km trek up from the city, far far away from any traces of commercialization. The staff warrants a special mention-...

The whole hotel is themed around Sherlock novel and has a British style of construction. Since this place is little away from the...

Seamless on-line booking. We received a call, the night earlier, to confirm early check-in. Direction on google maps is absolutely accurate. We took garden-facing rooms which had sun-rooms. The rooms themselves were very comfortable. Do not expect 5 star luxury in terms of in-room amenities. The toilets are neat and well-maintained. Beds are comfortable. Every room has a fireplace.

This is a wonderful little boutique place away from the hustle bustle of three main town. The hotel is Sherlock Holmes themed with each room/cottage having a related name and decor. Best rooms are the ones by the main building as they have fireplaces and open out to the garden which is really pretty. The breakfast was delicious and the...
