Club Mahindra Derby Green
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 December 2011

We stayed here from 4th-7th December and the resort was excellent in all aspects be it - cleanliness, staff and service, upkeep, activities, food and rooms. Unlike other Mahindra resorts this is a 15 min walk ( not advisable for those with knee problems ) to the Ooty Market, Bus stop and Railway Station.

The food as the case is with most of the resorts will be expensive and if you are a non-member it can cost you ~Rs.1000 a day per person !! However proximity to the market and easy availability of rickshaws and taxis solves this problem.

The rooms are simply superb and so is the property. Keep it Up !!

Room Tip: Try for Race Course facing rooms

Before going to this resort, I had read a mixed reviews by different people about this.. My personal experience was very good. The property is being improved day by day. Club Mahindra has made very good efforts to make this property very good and comfortable for the guests. I had booked two hotel units adjacent to each other. The hotel units were very good comparted to the 2BR suites (I heard so).. The food was good but bit expensive. The location is very good and is very close to the town. We were not able to do much sightseeing because of the weather conditions it was raining and lot of fog in the points of interests..The in-house attractions were not bad.. my kids enjoyed the advature sports, activities area and games.. The newly opened SPA is very good, I enjoyed the Ayurveda massage there...

I guess this is the only Club Mahindra property which is situated so close to the main city or rather in the main city as compared to all other resorts which are located in far flung or isolated locations. The first thing I noticed about this hotel that it is very different from other properties of Club Mahindra as the rooms are all situated very close to each other. But again this is an acquired resort and not an orignal Mahindra property. They have acquired an 100 year old hotel orignally owned by Dasprakash Hotels. They have maintained it well and market it as a heritage hotel. The resort is located on a very prime location. Since they had space limitations the dry kitchenette was concealed inside the cupboard along with all the other ammenities. The resort itself is located on a 5.5 acre plot with around 90 rooms. The rooms are very cozy and often tend to give you a hertiage feeling, though not very large in size they have tried and accomodate all ammenities without compromising on the heritage factor. The sit out though small offers a nice view of the city. I found the food a bit disappointing and the resort is yet to procure a liquor license. Having said that options for good food are limited in ooty. Overall its a good and well maintained place but your expectations from Club Mahindra tend to get high when you have been to their other properties as well.

Room Tip: Try and get rooms facing the Race course, if possible ask them for room number 1032 as it has the mo...

I didn't wanna go to Ooty considering that it a very "touristy" spot. The moment I checked into Club Mahindra Derby Green it all changed. Loved the room! Very very clean rooms. The fact that they give a small living room kinda structure along with a small in-cabinet kitchen made it perfect to just laze around.

Positives:
- Again, awesome rooms :)
- Too good room service. My husband wasn't feeling well one day and in just a call they had sent medicines to our room
- Nice, friendly and efficient travel desk. You need not think much they just arrange it all for you so perfectly
- Awesome food. Couldn't stop eating at breakfast. Might get monotonous but thats because of the huge variety

Negatives:
- I had got a room without a window so no view
- The view was not very interesting. I think the derby is when it would be the best. And the name suggests that too
- Not many restaurants around to try some food
- No alcohol served
- Rickshaw valahs charge you with the overrated tourist rates for very small rides as well

All in all a good experience :)

excellent property and great service. its a total bliss if you are travelling with kids especially infants, you can't even think of what all they have thought about. baby cots, baby bath tub, bottle steriliser etc... and fantastic kids play area. the resort can keep you busy for weeks there is so much to explore and its so centrally located. what a lavish sp[read of buffet also and excellent. This is probably the most enjoyable resort/hotel trip I have had with my 1.5yr old kid. Excellent just excellent!!!!!

The Club Mahindra resort is conveniently located near the racecourse, when we visited in Dec. 2010, there resort had just come up, the rooms are spacious with little kitchen facilities. I would have expected more..resort has some adventure activities, not as greate as in Coorg. But while in Ooty, you need to go around for sight seeing more rather than stay in the hotel.. the food is average, you can have better options outside.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms which face the race course and at the first level. The rooms towards the farther si...
