“Cool place to relax”
Reviewed 5 November 2011

This is one of the cool resort I visited. The place is one top a hill where you can enjoy the beauty of the earth hill structure with a cool view. The place is very near to the nice scenic places in ooty, though the route to this resort is not in a very good shape, I assume this is acceptable in hill side places like ooty.

We had stayed in the hotel for about a week during the summer along with family and friends. Have gone to ooty to participate in my grandfathers birthday that was conducted out there.

I would say the hotel is a decent for a place like ooty. Hotels in general in Ooty are not that great as they are run full capacity only during the summer. Hence among the ones available i would say this one is among the top ones. They provide you a room very similar to the service apartment that you can use to make food for self thus saving a lot of money on food during long stays at a place.

Reading through the reviews about hotels in Ooty I can conclude that the biggest mistake Sterling Elk Hill makes is mispricing it's rooms. The negative reviews of Elk Hill would instead be glowing testimonials had the same rooms been available for Rs. 1000/- instead of Rs 3000/- and this hotel would have vaulted to #1 in the rankings.

The positives: Great location , senior friendly , clean comfortable spacious rooms with kitchens, good food at reasonable price , responsive staff , good travel desk.

The negatives: Rooms look shabby , ongoing construction work , housekeeping not upto the mark.

Though this nine floor high resort on top of a ridge can be seen from virtually anywhere in Ooty town just 1 km away , it is in a calm , quiet location with traffic free roads and gentle walking trails to enjoy long walks or bicycle rides. Every part of the resort can be accessed by elevators which is an important consideration for anybody like me with seniors in their group. The rooms are comfortable but look shabby and the corridors have dirty and frayed carpets. The resort is undergoing renovation which means some construction noise , dust and problems with electricity supply. Housekeeping staff appear dedicated but seem to lack training/adequate supervision. There seems to be currently some problem with cleaning services and linen appears to be not properly cleaned but staff is more than willing to sift through the stock and get you the cleaner ones. Food is OK and the pricing for the Food Masti package seems reasonable but restaurant staff get easily overwhelmed and service standards fall when the restaurant gets more than half full. Recreation activities are standard run of the mill Carrom/TT/board game variety with evening Tambola/Antakshari type group activities.

Visited this resort during the week before Christmas so it was off season visit at Ooty for us. Less people and more space in generally over crowded place. Resort was good could have been better in terms of quality of the room and cleanliness.
In terms of service the people were very good to us. The monsoon masti offer on the food was very good. No need to go outside and search for food. The quality of the food was also very excellent and good variety was there.
I wanted more activities in the resort and especially for kids which they lacked.
