Stayed at the hotel just for a night in May 2015 but got good memories for life. The hotel has a old world charm, food is great and so is the service. The staff did its best to make us comfortable, the garden was beautiful and walking in the garden in the rain was a fulfilling experience. The breakfast spread was good enough a gentleman comes to sing at the hotel every day in the evening and all the guest gathered in the lobby to listen to him. This made us feel as if one big happy family was holidaying together. The only problem was the poor signage to the hotel. I had to call the hotel a number of times before I could reach. Overall good place to stay, would love to stay again.
King's Cliff is a heritage bungalow in Ooty, owned by a British Lord at one time- the logo of the hotel still bears the Coat of Arms of the Lord. It's located near the top of a hill, with greenery surrounding the bungalow, and a breathtaking view of the valley below. The lawns are well maintained, and the bungalow itself is beautifully furnished, still retaining some of the antique furniture and artifacts . . There are only 9 rooms in the hotel, each named after some historic characters or plays of Shakespeare. My husband and I stayed in Iago, a semi deluxe double room with a bathtub, and my sister in law in Verona, a standard room with two single cots. The tariff for these two rooms was 1275 and 975, respectively. The rooms are tastefully appointed, and all of them have a fireplace, which is lit by the staff after dinner. We went in October, and Ooty was very cold in the nights- the fireplace was a welcome respite from the cold. We also asked for 2 extra blankets, as there was only one double blanket in our room, which was insufficient in the cold (there is no heater or AC in the rooms). Hot water only comes in the mornings from 6:30 to 9:30, and if one needs it after that, one can request the staff and it will be done. The hotel is run by the Prabhu couple, and Meeta Prabhu coordinates the reservations. She also cooks some amazing desserts, and although we never met her, we had the good luck of tasting her Apple cinnamon cake, cheese cake and apple pie, all after a sumptuous meal of continental and Indian dishes prepared by the hotel's Bengali Chef. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful, and though the service can be a bit slow at times, they make up for it with their politeness and the excellent quality of food. Breakfast is included, and is served buffet style. In the two days that we stayed there, toast and eggs were a common feature, while the rest of the menu varied from Upma and idli one day, to parothas and vegetable the next. On our last day in the resort, we had breakfast out in the lawns. It was a great experience, sitting amongst the greenery and flowers, breathing in the fresh mountain air, and gorging on masala omelette and parothas. All in all, a very exotic experience and amazing value for money. What's more, I am now convinced that there is no better way to live in the mountains than in a colonial style bungalow- cozy rooms, fireplaces to warm you, and verandahs where you can have sit out in the evenings, have hot tea and enjoy the misty and magical scenery outside. We'll make sure all our friends and family visit this place at least once.
I checked in the hotel after checking up other hotels (like the 'luxurious cottages' - lakeview et al). The place is located far up on Willow Hill, which is taking left from the circle before charring cross (after Taj savoy and BP petrol bunk, the first cricle which comes, with a huge lamp post, 1. 5 km from the circle). The place, ambience is nice and away from the just ling crowd of town. All major hotels are located far off from town like Forune group's sullivan court perched on a hill top towards Dodabetta peak. On Willow Hill you will find besides' King's Cliff; Willow hotel, Monarch, and others The entire furnishings is in heritage style The staff is polite, amicable, food is good and with good options. The stay is a continental plan with a buffet breakfast, which had less items in the menu (may be because of off-season). Although the place is away from the town, one needs a vehicle to climb down because the stretch from the cirlce to the hotel gets lonely at night (even though there are a lot of hotels on the way up).
