This hotel is very old and located at the center place of the city near to the Botanical Garden, market, Art Gallery, churches, Rose Garden, Coonoor Road, Kothagiri Road. The rooms are reasonable and good spacious, service is very good, front office is very helpful and cooperative, restaurant is vegetarian and non-vegetarian hygiene and clean food is served. I visit for official work every month and also take my family in the holidays. The weather is nice and cool, with lots of greenery, tea estates and fresh vegetables and fruits are available. Surrounding this hotel you can find other restaurants also where you can go and eat. The full season is from March to May, the half season is in October.
The overall experience at this hotel was not so good. The service was not really good. The rooms and blankets were dirty. I travelled there with my family. I had not faced any problem in finding the hotel. The hotel was located at the centre of the market and nearby the bus stand and all. The appearance of the hotel was average. There was only one person, who was serving in all the rooms. So there was some delay at the service. Check-in and check-out was done quickly. But for everything I had to go to the reception. The room provided to me was okay. It was spacious, but not so clean. They could have done better. The room was not furnished, well enough. Every amenity was working properly in the room. I was not able to see any special view out of my room. The washroom was okay. Hot water facility was provided by the hotel. I had not checked any restaurant there. I ate food outside only. The hotel had not conducted any activities over there. They had organized a sightseeing trip for me. My suggestion for them is to improve the service and cleanliness in the hotel. I liked this hotel mainly because of the location. My advice for other traveller is that if they are looking for an average hotel at a nice location than it would be a good hotel.
Bed was comfortable, the quality of the TV set was normal, cable option was also available. Behavior of the hotel staff was pretty good. They were handling requests timely. Hotel's receptionist Mr Ahmed gave a warm welcome and responded well to our requests. The place where Charing Cross Hotel has been built is the heart of the city. Many restaurants are there near to the Hotel. Botanical garden is 5-10 minutes away from the Hotel. There are many shopping venues nearby to the Hotel. Non-veg meals are preferably more available than Veg. On a closure note, i would like to mention that whenever i will visit Ooty again i will definitely go for Hotel Charing Cross.
