Garden Manor, Ooty
16 F1- F2, Ottley Road, Near Botanical Garden
The rooms are little small for most people but just enough to crash after sightseeing and travel. Very tidy and well maintained. Working hot water and well maintained bathroom. There is restaurant on the terrace and it's very nice eating place with good views of mountains. Restaurant service is very good and staff is very courteous. There is free wifi provided but ensure that you take rooms on 1st floor and above since ground floor doesn't have any extra wifi router installed and signal is too poor on ground floor. Travel desk manages all your sightseeing trips if you approach them at reasonable rates. Even after you have departed the hotel, the hotel manager is so nice that he gave us his mobile number to contact him in case we need any assistance. All in all, this hotel is worth the stay purely for the service offered.
I stayed here for three nights. Pros: Near to city and walk-able distance to Ooty Botanical Garden and hotel neat and well-maintained. Cons: Rooms were very very small. The money they are charging for that room is very high. Hotel people claim that they provide hot water for 24 hrs as they have separate geyser in every bathroom but to get half bucket hot water we need to turn on geyser and wait for 30 mins which is ridiculous. We wasted a lot of time in morning waiting for the hot water. Food served in hotel is limited and its all frozen food. They cook and serve frozen chapatis which we get in super market. They just heat it before serving. And costly. I booked a standard room. But it was not as shown in the pictures posted here/on their website. Photos of standard room here shows Balcony door/window covered with curtain. But fact is none of the Standard room in that hotel have windows. It only has a big ventilator close to roof. Room will be dark all day without lights. No windows at all.
The location of the hotel was excellent. The ambience of the hotel was good. The overall service of the hotel was good. The allotted room was congested but it was nice. The food was expensive. The activities were not arranged by the hotel. I had visited this hotel for relaxation purpose with my wife.
The hotel was quite good. There was all activities to enjoy. A quite enjoyable place for the family. We had a funny time there. All the servers there were quite good. Their activities were also good. Totally we had good fun time and relaxed time in the resort.
