"Good location but very poor services "

3.5/7
Posted 1 year ago

The hotel is situated just on the top of a hill overlooking Wellington toy train station. The hotel provides a very nice view of surrounding Nilgiris. It was once a great place to put up. The wooden interiors and well serviced rooms used to add grandeur and comfort after checking-in. But now the place is totally unkempt and has lost its charm. The restaurant is not in service and one has to go outside for food. Travellers can use this to put up if not finding any other good place in and around Ooty.

"Satisfactory stay ; Reasonable hotel "

5.0/7
Posted 2 years ago

Location of this hotel was excellent. It was surrounded with beautiful mountains. I thoroughly enjoyed the splendid view of mountains from the room. Accommodation was in a good room equipped with good room amenities and also hygienically maintained room. I did not get chance to have food at this hotel. I did not look the other activities were provided for the customers and the stay was for very short duration. They offered reasonable rates and overall stay was satisfactory. It was value for money and worth recommending. It was an official trip.

"Worst hotel of my life; bad experience"

0.5/7
Posted 3 years ago

I would give Riga Residency a negative review if I could! It was beyond horrible! When we reached the hotel, we were informed that we could get only 1 of our 2 rooms because the other one was not available - this after I confirmed the time of our arrival to the hotel at least 3 times before we got there. The staff at the reception had no idea of anything - which rooms were available, when we'd get the other room, where the keys to the room were! We waited on the stairs for a good 15 minutes before they found they keys! We only got the other room later in the evening. All of us had to wait in line to rest and shower in one room until then, like a public chawl. The rooms were extremely shabby. The sink was cracked all over, the commode broken, the mirror cracked, the buckets were lined with dirty (ugh), the bathroom mesh had holes, the bed was on the verge of breaking, the carpet was covered in dust and the mattress was ripped. That's not all, supposed 24x7 Wi-Fi didn't even work, the TV didn't work nor did the phones and despite our constant requests to get this fixed, nothing was done. We had to go downstairs at least 3 times to get them to take our order, a couple more times to ask them to get the food and then to clear the plates. That too, they cleared the plates only to leave them outside our door. To make matters worse, the manager tried to get more money out of us, even though the rate was pre-decided before our arrival. This is by far the worst hotel I have seen in my life. It really needs to be delisted from here so that some other innocent people can be saved from such ordeals.

"Good location but bad service"

3.0/7
Posted 3 years ago

Hotel is not worth staying. Despite it is beautifully created, its management and its service is worst. Food facility is also worst. Breakfast was too delayed. If you stay in this hotel you will be trapped in it. When I was staying in this hotel, my room’s geyser got blasted out. Some staff members came to see that what happened there in room but when they saw the fire they just ran away leaving me alone and it was a total mess. After 20 minutes, the fire was taken into control. I have travelled so many places, but I have never found such a bad hotel. Location is good. Kullu is a very beautiful place. I will never recommend this hotel to anyone.

"Great staff and nice experience. Nice Hotel. "

6.0/7
Posted 3 years ago

At Riga Residency the experience was great, located uphill about 1km from Conoor town, the Hotel has interior reminding us of the Imperial Days. Open your windows and you have an exotic view of the Nilgiris and fresh air you breathe enlivens your whole mind and body. Good support from the hotel staff makes your living more comfortable, garden, the restaurant and bar add to your stay. I say it was a Simply Nice experience. You can always wish for a second trip.

Beautiful Location. The view from the rooms is excellent. I found the rooms well maintained with parquet flooring. I dont know what the other reviewers were complaining about, I suppose the hotel has been rennovated.
