It is a very good hotel located hardly a km from the city. It has good spacious rooms with a cosy atmosphere. Its terrace restaurant is very nice and a must place to be. Service is also very good and prompt. Stayed April 2009, travelled on business

Not a regular hotel. No polished brass. Not a great bath room. Not good food. Grandfather time TV's. Just an average home stay. But what makes it unique and desirable is its privacy, location. You will feel like it's your own private cottage/bungalow. Old, antique, in a private location away from crowded Ooty city. You should have to have your...

All rooms are facilitated with hot water, carpet n TV (all major channels available). They arrange Bon Fire on request (Rs 700 charges). Its little off route from the main...
