This is a wonderful trip, we enjoyed a lot as roads from Bangalore to Ooty was good. We travelled in a taxi. The hotel was also very good. Hotel has nice view locations. At Ooty must see place is Coonor, there tea estates are excellent. We went to Conoor the first day there and we enjoyed a lot and on the second day we went to a boat house and we went for a boat ride. After that we went to Conoor by toy train. The train was very nice and we saw nice scenery around us.

Roads are bad if you are travelling via Mysore- Nanjangudu- Bandipur. While coming back I took the Kanakpura Road. Its a divider less road but quite faster. If you are travelling in mornings its a better route. The road after Bandipur is anyways not in good shape but before that till Mysore most of the road is under construction.

Visited this place for my 3rd anniversary with my 2 year old kid. The food was amazing and the hotel staff was very friendly. Chef Mahadev and his staff was very accommodating with my mischievous kid.

I must say food is the best part of all of the things.

We had a chance to see many wildlife during the car journey. Since we hired a car, we were able to stop in forest and take the pics near deers. Also, we got a chance to see the the group of elephants, while returning back.

It was a very good experience in travelling by bus, we saw Bandipur forest while travelling. The mini bus was given for us to travel, the staff was good and friendly. But they should be more organised in timings for pickup and drops. I observed they stop at shopping place, where they get good amount of commission which is unnecessarily charged to customers. This was a bad habit with bus staff.
