Ponmari Residencyy: Good for its location.

Good for its location.

We stayed here for 3 days. Overall this place is great, I really liked it for its for location which is added advantage..which is very near to Ooty's botanical garden and shopping area and still its located at very quite location.Rooms are well maintained, neat and clean.

They got restaurant, bar, spa, gym, shop. But I did not used any facilities other than restaurant which serves all regional food and though its little pricey but the taste and quality of food is good. Reception and staff is helpful all the time and they try to make your stay comfortable, I really appreciate them for that. They can arrange tour guide for you in case if you dont have your own vehicle. Overall I prefer to stay here in future trips.

Location, food, rooms,staff and other facilities. But nobody is perfect so as this hotel which needs few improvement too. Like hot water which is available 24 hrs but that is during morning and evening for 2-3 hours except that you will find cold water running from tap. In that case we need to call reception to switch on hot water and we need to wait for atleast 10 minutes which is really annoying.

And for the money we paid I was expecting wooden flooring instead they got simple ceramic tiles in rooms and after evening as temperature drops which makes it really difficult to move around in room.

Taj Savoy Ooty: Olde World Charm

Spent 3 wonderful days in Ooty - enjoyed the Taj Savoy.
The colonial atmosphere reminded us of a bygone era.
Staff are friendly and very warm.
We had a wonderful family suite with a cosy fireplace for those chilly Nilgiri evenings.
Highly recommended.

Red Hills Estates: A view to die for!!

This last trip to Ooty, we stayed in an estate that is around 30 KMS away from downtown Ooty- near a man made lake called Emerald Lake. The roads are great until about 7 KMS to the property, after which it is a hike for your vehicle to the doorstep! This property has about 10 rooms and can accomodate larger groups. We went on a regular weekend and almost had the entire place to ourselves. The owners Vijay and Bhanu are very gracious hosts, they made us feel very welcome and comfortable while also ensuring we had our space!
They gave us a double room that had a view to die for! The food was simple and delicious. The best part about thisplace was a 6yr old German SHepard called Moby- he made for some awesome company!!

Reflections Guesthouse: Overlooking the lake

This lovely, friendly guesthouse overlooks the lake to the west of the town centre. It's well located for the train station but a bit of a walk to get into the main town area, especially when you want to eat in the evening plus it's a little quiet in this part of town at night. To get over this, the guesthouse has a menu of simple dishes which do the trick and you can eat and talk to fellow travellers in the main common room. There's also a lounge with a TV. The guesthouse also others a few trekking tours and I went on one around the tea plantations and hill villages.

For the first night of the three I stayed there, I had a room in the main house near the entrance but then moved to a better room in a block at the back up the hill. Here I had 2 single beds pushed together, 2 plastic chairs, bedside table, mirror, and hot water via a geyser between 6.30-9am. My room cost Rs400.

Kurumba Village Resort: In the lap of nature...

The Kurumba Village Resort, leading resorts in Ooty & Coonoor. We also think of the thrills emanating from fickle and fast-changing climatic conditions. Our deep appreciation of the meticulousness with which their architect has mingled the idyllic and pristine qualities of an ancient land with ultra modern amenities into a perfectly pleasurable blend has to be recorded at this juncture..

The invigoratingly clean air of the Kurumba Village Resort is to be breathed to be believed!

Reflections Guest House

Reflections Guest House is actually ranked high on most travel guide books for its good service and room rate. The house takers are friendly and breakfast can be arranged and they even have very informative guest books for you to browse for attractions at Ooty.

I cannot remember whether rooms have air conditioning, but you don't really need one at Ooty.

The guest house is overlooking a beautiful lake, where a small theme park offering horse riding, go kart & some amusement activities till late evening.

Toda Huts: Staying in a Toda Village

We stayed overnight in the Toda village; our group was divided into three huts, with either spots on the floor or on "beds" of rock. I had chosen not to travel to India with a sleeping bag, and did not regret it for all but one night of the trip. . .this was the night I had wished I had something for additional warmth.

Temperatures in the Nilgiri Hills drop to zero in winter evenings ~ the huts are not heated overnight ~ and rock beds do not conserve heat. It was a terribly long night.

The benefit of being half-awake most of the night meant that I was up early in the morning, with the first stirrings of our Toda hut-mates. The fire was put on as soon as they were awake, to begin food preparations, and I took advantage of the opportunity with one of my tourmates to go out for a walk in the hilly areas that we hadn't explored the day before.
