Powered by AI

Nestled in a scenic spot, Sterling Ooty Elk Hill captivates guests with its serene and kid-friendly atmosphere, often adorned with festive decorations that add to its enchantment. While the rooms earn compliments for cleanliness and their breathtaking views, some guests suggest they could be less cramped and more updated. Although the hotel's pricing is a point of contention due to perceived high costs, many travelers are drawn to its prime location near local attractions. The service stands out, with staff members praised for their exceptional care, and while the hotel's amenities are generally admired, especially for families, there's an acknowledgment that indoor facilities have room for enhancement.

The resort was very hygiene especially during the covid situation all the staffs were adhering to the rules laid down by the government. A special mention about Mr. Sinan who was incharge of Room service and house keeping he was checking and taking care of all the guest s needs. But if your travelling with children I would suggest not to take food from Sterling cos my daughter suffered from stomach infection after taking dinner from Sterling and food also doesn't taste that great for food I will give 1/5

It was a cozy stay at Sterling Ooty Elk. Me & my wife needed a break from our buzzing city life and Sterling provided us just the right ambience for a perfect getaway. We had booked the premium room online but we were surprised and happy that Sterling had upgraded the room to premium suite. The staff was very co-operative and the rooms were well maintained. The rooms are indeed set with a great ambience and the view from the windows are just mesmerising. Food quality is good through we observed that the rates were on the higher side with respect to the competition, the offered variety and taste. Ride to the site seeing places are also pretty closed can reach easily. They do offer value added services like trekking or site seeing packages. The complimentary breakfast does serve the purpose of a decent meal. You need to arrange your own transportation to anf from the hotel or take paid services offered by the hotel who are quote on the higher end. All said, I would certainty recommend Sterling Oak to all families and couples for a 2 or 3 night stay at Ooty. HAPPY HOLIDAYING!

Slow check-in, no wi-fi in the rooms – only in the lobby. Only one key per room. No bottled water in the room, just purified water.
No AC in the room, just a heater for the bedroom. It is not possible to stay in the other room – too cold.
Problems with the hot water.
Extremely expensive – for every service they add 5% service tax and 20% taxes, total of around 23% for every price. For example – the price of buffet dinner is 850 INR per person, for 2 people we were charged 2100 INR.

our stay at Sterling Ooty Elk Hill from 10th January 2020 to 13th January 2020.

This was a family vacation and the team made sure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. Right from the entrance gate to the front desk to the restaurant staff and housekeeping team each and everyone were on their toes and ensured that we are taken care of in each possible way.

They organised a special dinner for my family which was a beautiful experience. They completely exceeded our expectations in all possible ways. The staff was courteous and welcoming.

I would like to give special mention here to Mr. Praveen and team for the wonderful arrangements. Also Dinesh, Satyajit, Pritam for their unbeatable hospitality. The housekeeping staff was exceptional. Overall, this stay was a wonderful experience for all of us and experiences like this make us come back again and again.

It was a pleasure meeting Mr. Jain Kumar on the day of our check out who specially came down to meet us.

We will surely be recommending Sterling and Sterling Elk Hill to all our family and friends.

Thank you very much Team Sterling Holidays!

It's a very pleasant stay in a good location with clean rooms and all surroundings were kept clean and sanitized House keeping and organizing buffet in the restaurant, taste was too good. They taken additional care for guests and help cooked special food for small kids when some families requested without saying no. Feedback were taken and rectified immediately during buffet and room cleaning.

Special thanks for the house keeping and food servicing team.

Kids playarea is good and has many activities and in-door games like carrom, TT, cricket got free. VR, car racer games were given in reasonable price.

We really had a good stay for 3 days after a such long time due to the covid. Places are sanitized and kept clean.

Special appreciation and thanks to Praveen, JP, Sanin who provided a very good hospitality in the restaurant and house keeping.

Just back from a memorable stay in Ooty. Reception at the front desk was impeccable. We were upgraded to a Premium room. A cozy small suite with beautiful view of the town. Room amenities were very good but they forgot to provide us with some basic toiletries on the first day. Reception staff needs to be more pro active with services when they are in company of someone as energetic as Mr Anup Singh, GRE. He has great communication skills and really enriched our stay. He made my daughter's first birthday celebration really special.Now regarding restaurant service, it was quite good . Special mention should be made of Pritam and Satyajit who were very courteous. Food was good with wide range of menu. But i think the breakfast buffet menu needs a bit of change.it needs more north indian style food to make it more palatable. Over all me and my wife with our 1 year old daughter had a very good stay.
