Positive Reviews

It is remotely convenient

Here, in the Nilgiris, or Blue Mountains, it is like being in another world; such are the feelings of peace and tranquillity. Guests are quick to point out though that the shops, restaurants and even the railway station at Ooty are a mere four miles or so away. It is also just a ten-minute drive to the bustling market.

A perfect package break

There is a preconception on the part of guests that because of the remote location, and particularly during the evening periods, there may be some boredom and twiddling of thumbs. This does not happen. The very hard working members of staff are constantly arranging games and entertainment. Guests are thrilled by the daytime sightseeing opportunities in this region. Surprisingly, the evening parties don't disappoint either.

Super accommodation; inside and outside

Rooms are spectacularly clean and quite spacious. The outside areas also impress guests. They stretch over 10 acres and offer the perfect setting in which to relax and unwind.

Negative Reviews

Paradise has imperfections

Guests report that the Wi-Fi is decidedly dodgy and so is the regularity of hot water to the rooms.

Transport required

It is a fabulous location, but guests feel that it is essential to have access to transport in order to get maximum enjoyment from the visit. They are quite inventive here, though. Some guests bring their own driver. They are accommodated by the hotel in basic but acceptable rooms.

Restaurant food is the weak link

Food is OK but it is not as spectacularly impressive as other aspects of the hotel. Apart from the quality and choices on offer, some guests are concerned that vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes appear together in the buffet selections. There are similar and understandable concerns relating to the sale of alcohol.
