Overall ... It was good and fine

Posted 7 Sep, 2017

I traveled to Ooty in the month of April 2017 on a family holiday trip. I booked a room at this hotel through online. The hotel location was very good as it was convenient to reach. It was easily accessible to all the amenities. It was nearby to the bus stand. Car parking was spacious. The appearance was very good with the overall looks. It was like a cottage type. The front office was not up to the mark. They were not all genuine. The booking process was done on time. The overall service was good and just satisfactory. There were no fun activities in that hotel. But they arranged some transport for sightseeing. It was a paid service. They charged Rs. 250-350/- per person. When examined outside it was just Rs. 180-200/- per person. They charged extra Rs. 50/- per person. All the extra money were going to the reception. This was very disappointing. Rooms were very good. We took a double cottage. It was convenient and compact. It was clean and well maintained with all the basic amenities. It was all in working conditions. The room service was good. Foods were very good to taste and the quality was hygienic. It was fresh and served hot. They provided complimentary breakfast in the morning. It was a South Indian food style. I will recommend this hotel to other travelers too.
