First of all this hotel is quite far from the heart of Ooty, and it's difficult to find transport to and from the hotel. When we made our booking, we were told it's 2-3 km from the bus stand - it's not, it's a lot more than that The hotel has great facilities, like a play area, ping pong, library, etc. There's also a little souvenir store. If sightseeing is not on your Ooty agenda, the hotel has enough recreational facilities on the premises, including a little "hut" that sells tea between 4 and 7 pm However, if sightseeing is on your agenda, you can ask the reception to arrange a cab for you, and wait until your day is wasted. If you're lucky, and a cab does eventually arrive after hours of waiting, the driver will charge more than the amount that was agreed upon before the trip and insist you pay him directly, even as the hotel adds it to your total bill The room itself was good, but a little small, given the price. The bathroom - well, let's just say a little cleanliness would've been nice. We called them up to clean it once, and lay out a mat, but about an hour later, when we called again, they claimed to not know anything about our earlier request Similarly, at the breakfast buffet, any time you have to place an for items like omelettes, for instance, be prepared to repeat it several times, and wait. Waiting is an integral part of your stay at Accord Highland, whether you like it or not The day we checked out, we asked the reception to book a cab for us to take us to town. But here's the thing - we've checked out, money's transferred hands. So if the staff was less than enthusiastic before, by now they're at the peak of their indifference. We followed up every fifteen minutes for one and a half hours, but no cab came, after which we decided to walk to the jeep stand. Let me mention, from the entrance to the gate of the hotel is a slightly steep climb, and it's not a short walk either. We had luggage, and a kid; no help whatsoever was offered (after which, we had to walk further to the jeep stand - at least the view was green and beautiful) Granted there's a lot to do here, but is it really worth the attitude of the staff, mediocre food, and someone else's hair in the bathtub? Ask yourself that before you make a booking.
Our 1st honeymoon tour was in Ooty. We were in Ooty in Last January for 8 Days. In one word Highland Hotel was excellent. The hotel was looks like a White House. The rooms were big, bathrooms was also big. The view from the hotel rooms was very amazing. In morning we can take a nice walk through garden. That was awesome experience. The restaurant was nice & all types of foods available here. That's all we get in Highland Hotel. It was a joyful experience.
Booked almost at last minute for summer holidays. Hotel is 3-4 km from Ooty so choose this only if you have own vehicle. It's also bit difficult to locate unless you have GPS as it's off the Doddabetta road (on Kotagiri road). Please itself is quite decent - only negatives are absence of lifts (so choose room on lower floors) and presence of lot of monkeys. Ooty was also unseasonably warm when we went there so had to keep the windows open but was constantly on alert against monkeys and mosquitoes Plus points are friendly and attentive staff, great food at their restaurant and of course a plethora of games for young kids. They have Kinect games and other board games but best of all is the bowling machine which is totally free. They also have nice bonfire in the evenings. So it's a good place for families with kids.
I always used to travel hotels, which is located outskirt city. This hotel was good and convenient to travel and I did not face any issues with it. The staff in the hotel were superb. But, they delayed in check-in or check-out at least for two to three hours. The bed sheets, pillows and amenities like AC TV all were in good condition. There was a mountain view from front and beach view from backside of the hotel. The staff used to clean the room regularly and they provide hot and cold water on time. The food from the hotel restaurant was good in both veg and non-veg but price was expensive. The total money was reasonable. They had campfire, video games, children play ground but no swimming pool or gym. I can recommend this hotel to other travellers.
I visited in the month of January and it was a holiday trip with family. The destination was an excellent especially Botanical garden. The location was good and best way to reach this hotel was by car. The appearance of the hotel was good and looks nice. The front office was excellent and sincerely, friendly. The room was neat and spacious. Service was excellent and staff was friendly. The food was very tasty as variety was available. All activities were good. The overall experience was excellent.
