I, along with my family of 6 other members, stayed at Ponmari Residency for two nights in the first week of April 2012. Having done extensive research through Internet on the best, yet affordable hotel in Ooty, I zeroed in on Ponmari. I had to wait till the last couple of days to book accommodation for various reasons and when I tried to book rooms, the web site of Ponmari flashed an error message citing cutoff date for accommodation. I immediately called Ponmari and they asked me to e-mail them making a formal request for accommodation which I did, to which there was PROMPT reply from Mr. Rajendran of Ponmari requesting me to deposit some advance money for confirmation of accommodation and again, I called Ponmari and the officer, Mr. Hakeem, was very kind enough to say that “NO NEED TO PAY ANY ADVANCE” and that he has “BLOCKED” a couple of rooms based on the already placed request via e-mail. When we reached Ooty (Ponmari), everything was perfectly in place for us. Of course, they did not have such huge rooms to accommodate all of us in one single room (in fact, no hotel claims to have). We were charged just one extra bed that too for just one night and were given a discount of one-night extra bed. Throughout our stay, the staff right from security to room service were really helpful, polite, attending to our requests immediately, and going to whatever extent possible to keep us happy. The only downside was that the “Royal Standard Room” that I stayed in got a bit stuffy during nighttime and it was a bit difficult to have a good night’s sleep. On the whole, we had an exciting trip and wonderful stay at Ponmari. Thank you Ponmari people, you made our stay a memorable one and I, for sure, would recommend this cozy, yet reasonably priced hotel. I did not try their multi-cuisine restaurant because I am a strict vegetarian and no opinions there.
