Very comfortable to stay

6.8/7
Posted 26 Oct, 2015

We are in De Rock yet again! And it has been as pleasurable as in our past visits. Charles is a great host and takes personal care to ensure the comfort of his guests. This time I was here with extended family that consisted of people from both ends of the age spectrum. Both the elderly and the young enjoyed their stay here. Food was excellent and Christopher ensured that the food was to our taste. Augustine and the other people running the daily stuff at the place ensured that we were at ease and helped with the bedding, food and other services. Mind you, there is almost no cell coverage around the place. This more so due to the terrain and it is a blessing in disguise. Keeps away from those never ending calls. Though I've been here before, I would not mind coming back if I am in the area again. Really a great value and bang for the buck! Keep the great experience rolling, Charles!

Good stay with breathtaking view

4.8/7
Posted 4 Sep, 2015

De Rock resort in Coonoor is located at a very high altitude - Lamb's Rock view point. The location of this resort is breathtaking, amidst of tea estates which will leave any nature lover at awe. The Lambs' rock view point is just in front of the resort. It is surrounded with tea gardens all around. You can find gaurs/bisons roaming in the tea garden. The only thing is an expensive food. For small snack it costs around 350/ INR , but justifying the location it is worth it.

Services and staff of the hotel were good

5.9/7
Posted 17 Jun, 2015

Car parking facility was provided. The interior furnishings of the hotel were good. The staff's behaviour was good and they were friendly to our request. The hotel didn? provide any activities. The hotel had provided both vegetarian and non vegetarian food in the hotel and the taste of the food was very good. I was able to see the tea plantation. The check in and checkout procedure was not delayed. The services of the hotel were good. The amenities were in working condition. The room provided to me was good and well maintained. I would recommend this hotel to other travellers.

Amazing resort with beautiful room

6.4/7
Posted 7 Apr, 2015

I had heard a lot about the natural undisturbed beauty of Coonoor and as it was to be my first visit to Coonoor, I was searching for a place that would gell with the natural surroundings and not be intrusive. I also was looking for some quiet and a place where I could relax, search for butterflies and watch birds. My search led me to De Rock. I reached the place quite late in the afternoon. As it was my first visit, I was Stopping at various places to take in the fresh air moving at a relaxed pace. At first glance itself, I realized that I had made a great choice. The rooms were beautiful and spacious. The dining area was awesome. The food was good. Things couldn't get any better. I was wrong! When I woke up the next morning (around 6 am), all I could see was mist and more mist. By 7 there was more mist. We then went out for a morning walk to Lambs Rock, which is right next to the property. More mist there. It was amazing. When we finally came back around 9 am, the sun was up and we could finally get a proper view of the property and its surroundings. Its amazing. The stay is right in the middle of a Tea estate and you get some stunning views of the tea garden as well as beyond. The hosts are wonderful folks willing to share their knowledge and experience. The only thing according to me that can be improved is the food quality. I would highly recommend this place. Its a full value for your money.

A cute little property which is well maintained

5.9/7
Posted 10 Nov, 2014

De'rock Coonoor is a small property well maintained. It is located near Lamb's rock a famous view point in Coonoor. The rooms are neat and well designed. The room on the first floor is spacious and commands a good view. People can try a small trek to the near by stream with the help of locals there. The hotel people will help you find a guide. The trek is really good. Beware of leeches though. Take necessary precautions such as snuff powders and salt to keep them at bay. The best thing at De'rock is food. The chef has a magical hands. Try that for sure. The quantity of food provided can be a little more. De'rock Coonoor is a must visit place

Comfortable room with modern amenities, good food

6.5/7
Posted 11 Aug, 2014

It was good staying in this hotel; I had been here in the month of February. The hotel location was good; it was near to the airport. The hotel had a good appearance and it had a royal look. The room was good and it was spacious, comfortable and had all modern amenities. The service was very good and it was on time. The food available in the hotel was good and many varieties of food were available. The hotel had a pool, but I did not utilize it. The hotel is recommendable to other travellers.

It is an economical hotel with all good facilities

6.6/7
Posted 21 May, 2014

I stayed fore one day in the hotel. I went there with my friends. Complimentary breakfast was not given there. I took a double AC room. It was located in main city area. Room was very good, it was well decorated. Services were also good. Reception people were nice and cooperative. Appearance was fine. Location was fantastic. Food was there, bud I did not take it there. Hyderabad destination is excellent and a good tourist place. Check out and check out was okay. AC was not working. It is a recommendable hotel and economical also. Only bonfire activity was present in the hotel whereas other extra activities were missing. Beautiful view was visible from the room. All basic amenities were available in the room like TV, fridge, geyser, AC, bed, etc. I liked mainly everything at the hotel.

must stay destination

7.0/7
Posted 28 Jan, 2013

De Rock in one sentence is a must stay destination in Coonoor. Perched atop one of the viewpoints in Coonor Lambs De Rock, the views of the tea estate and the world below is mind blowing. The food is home cooked and awesome to say the least, and the personal guidance from the people there on places to visit and things to do, really helps on the trip. Honestly we were struggling to find something wrong with this place.
