Wow what a beautiful and fascinating place. Originally built by a Scottish officer 150 years ago. They have kept it as original as they can. Infact the furniture in the sitting room is on a photograph dating back 100 years ago. The only heating is by open fires so ensure you have warm clothes. Our room had a fireplace and...

So the place is beautiful , reminds me of all the British cottages and Managers bungalows in Munnar ......... but it may have been a bad day for them and definitely us . They were swamped so the staff was not friendly , served our food after almost 60 minutes . I had the roast lamb which was served without...

I have been going to kings cliff ever since 2004. The place is an old heritage British house divided into cozy rooms. And with a fireplace. Trust me you don't want to miss the hotel rooms if your on ooty. And sit and enjoy your private fire place at night. The food at this property is always been top rated...

Fantastic stay and food. Very cordial stuff. And very good location for the stay in Ooty. From the hotel lawn, there is an unobstructed view of the city of Ooty. The rooms are well maintained with working fire-places, though a bit small in size. The breakfast spread is very good.

As you drive through the gates a manicured lawn and colonial mansion house greet you. It's a great first impression. Enter the double doors to be warmly greeted by the front of house team. An easy check in and you are taken to the room where you baggage is. Choose refreshments from the kiosk outside, sit in the glorious sunshine...

A little way out of town but well worth it for the peace and tranquility. A lovely old place with friendly, obliging staff, live music in the evenings and good food. Fires each night in the public rooms and in the bedrooms. Would definitely recommend it if you want a peaceful stay with a touch of the Raj atmosphere.

We stayed at Kings Cliff in early December for three nights and had a wonderful stay. The food at Earl's restaurant was delicious and we very much enjoyed the ambience of this lovely bungalow. The weather was wet and cold but with the fire lit it was pleasant to sit and enjoy the evening music. A car was arranged for...

We went to Ooty as backpackers and our budget wasn't a lot. But many of our friends suggested to try food here. And we did. The prices were about ₹390-₹600 on most dishes as this is a continental restaurant but trust me, the food was absolutely delicious. Also the ambience gives quite a bit of a feel with the fireplace...

We stayed here for 2 days. We checked into the hotel late at night around 10:00 pm. We had made the booking via expedia.com and had mentioned our request for an extra bed at that time. The hotel had received our booking with our special request and yet the manager at the reception said that we would be charged 660...
