Small studio rooms with beautiful view of the hill. Breakfast spread was good but lunch and dinner buffet were not worth the price they charge. Sales manager Nupur (i may have get the spelling wrong) was very helpful in planning our 3 day trip. She suggested some good places to dine as well.

I travelled with my wife to OOTY and Sterling provided a very comfortable stay. The food was delicious and staff was very helpful. It will be always a preferred place for me to stay in OOTY. Very near to OOTY market and other places are also very well approachable.

We enjoyed our visits to their organic vegetable garden and even purchased several vegetables and plants. One of the drawbacks is the place is somewhat remotely situated (hilltop location) and...
