Positive Reviews

Views are just sublime

It's fair to say the views of the surrounding valleys and mountains are a big hit with mesmerised visitors. The jaw-dropping vistas on hand from the restaurant and many of the rooms are so sublime many travellers consider them the highlight of their stay. Guests who are fortunate enough to stay in rooms with a direct aspect of the Nilgiri Hills tend to be the most enamoured.

Lovely, peaceful vibe

Surrounded by nature and removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, it's easy to see why so many guests fall in love with this property's idyllic setting. Many reviewers say the quiet, laid-back vibe is the perfect antidote to the hectic, cut-and-thrust tempo of modern life.

Courteous and considerate personnel

The majority of visitors who stay at this resort report good things about the hotel's staff members. Guests remark that, as well as being polite and professional, the operatives here are typically very enthusiastic about their work, especially the entertainment staff and receptionists. The always-keen-to-please food and beverage manager receives plenty of plaudits too.

Negative Reviews

Dodgy approach road

Many reviewers identify the largely unpaved approach road to the resort as an aspect which needs to be improved upon. Travellers say new arrivals should be prepared for a bumpy ride.

Overpriced food

Although guests are, generally speaking, quite satisfied with the standard of the food served here, they're not impressed by the cost. Indeed, many reviewers feel the dining options at this hotel are priced much higher than they ought to be.
