we book deluxe room but they allocate us ordinary room, I asked for this they reply very arrogantly and they don't know how to speak with guest, really bad experience. Rooms were dirty and there is no towels and soap in the bathrooms, pathetic service. Don't go for food in this hotel, food was not up to the mark.

"Good location, Dirty rooms and Pathetic service"

2.5/7
Posted 12 Jul

Very dirty bathroom. toilet seat was not up to the mark. Windows were not having the lock from inside leading to sense of insecurity.Service was very poor since we were initially declined the breakfast citing the reason that they have not received any communication regarding free breakfast. We got breakfast after lodging complain with MMT helpdesk. Going forward I am not going to stay in this hotel.

"Near to Raghunath Mandir and main market "

1.9/7
Posted 8 Jul

No lift to carry luggage to 2nd floor and difficult for elder persons to climb stairs. Staff not courteous. 5 Rooms given were not clean, dirty linen, blankets and beds were torn and stinky. AC in rooms were old window / split type , not cooling. Reason given was voltage fluctuations. No hot water was coming and when complained asked us to wait till rooms are vacant so that bucket of water can be given. We had to take cold water shower. Dinner we ordered Maggi for kids and in the night all of them had vomited and were suffering of stomach pain. When complained no one bothered and instead blamed for overeating . Morning we had to continuously follow up To get complementary break fast from 7:30 am and finally it was served with 1 Aloo Parata +Tea+curd+picked. Poor quality interiors, old dusty curtains , cots, paint peeled off from walls . No proper sleep due to power fluctuations during night time. Worst experience in life for having trusted reviews in make my trip site while booking.

"Luxury accommodation; good staff"

7.0/7
Posted 2 May, 2014

I came along with my friends last year to Ooty. Initially I searched for many hotels online but the response was not upto the mark. I looked for hotels, cottages etc initially. Later luckily I found Sarkar Palace hotel website and immediately I contacted to the numbers given on the web site. After discussing with staff of Sarkar Palace about room features etc I booked room in advance paying initial amount and after reaching Ooty we have taken two rooms and stayed for almost for a day. We are very much satisfied with the room facilities being provided. It's really luxurious. I had a feeling as if I was at my home because at our home too we maintain the same tidy/neatness. Rooms at Sarkar palace are very well ventilated. If opened windows of the room we can have a great feeling looking at the surrounding mountains/peaks and the fog during the early mornings. I enjoyed it lot. The pictures shared on the site about the rooms are in real and there is no doubt in it. The mattresses provided in our room are very comfortable. During night and early hours of the day I happened watch even Television. The quality of TV is really good. During nights there was no sounds and the climate/surroundings was very peaceful without any kind of disturbances. As Ooty climate being very cold, 24/7 hot water is provided in the hotel. Before last year when I visited Ooty I booked for a hotel(not Sarkar Palace) they had a timing of 7 am to 8 am during which hot water is provided but other timings we need to make use of only cold water. Due to their policy I had to buy a water heater for my family members. In Sarkar palace we can use hot water for 24/7 and there are no restrictions in timings for providing hot water. I advice all the new travellers who come to Ooty for sight seeing to obviously choose Sarkar Palace for the best and luxury accommodation. My heartful thanks to the staff of Sarkar Palace in providing a wonderful accommodation and serving us. Also we all have decided to stay in Sarkar Palace all the times when ever we visit to Ooty. I recommended all my friends in my circle and neighboring families to choose Sarkar Palace if there is a plan to visit Ooty. Finally my experience in staying at Sarkar palace is wonderful. I cherish every moment of my stay.

"Impressive location & complimentary breakfast"

4.4/7
Posted 10 Apr, 2015

When long weekend was upon us, we had Ooty on our minds. Parents & I. After hearing decent-reviews from brother-in-law who stayed at Sarkar Palace on official trips, we didn't think twice before booking the rooms. 15 days in advance when called in to confirm booking, everything seemed so easy. Located in centre of Ooty, nearby to all good restaurants & easy convenience from all touristy places such as Botanical Garden, Doddabetta, etc, everybody was impressed by the location & hotel even before check-in. Ask for Kalim once you enter the hotel. You'll eventually meet him. He is the most friendliest of all. Helped us through our stay (3 nights, 4 days) for anything & everything. We checked in at 2:30 PM on a Thursday & we were told because of the extended weekend (Thanks to Good Friday! ), every room in every hotel is booked. No last minute reservations possible, whatsoever. Kalim was kind enough to call & check-up on whether we were right on time around 12 PM and followed up with us to guide us to the hotel. We had taken a Super-Deluxe room ( with extra bed). Room gave a very warm feel the minute we entered. Weather was just perfect, we thought. A decent view from window, good lighting. Hot water from 7-9 AM, 7. 30 PM-10. 30 PM. Complimentary breakfast everyday - We had idly vada (everyday) and another breakfast, different each day (omlette/bread-butter, pongal, hot parathas). Everything was served hot & was getting refilled immediately. We ordered in dinner from hotel for over two nights & both times, service was as per requested & dinner was good. Roti, dal & curd rice - everyone seemed to enjoy it. We asked Kalim for recommendations on places to see & he was kind enough to connect us with two good drivers who did such brilliant job taking us around. On two different days. They not only showed us every place we had in mind, but were generously taking us through the city, to places we normally would miss if we went by just Google-reccos. Request Kalim to connect you with Zaffar ( if you're planning to hire a cab & visit all places around). You'll thank me later. He was stopping the car in between & show us places where vegetables are grown in large, or to pick everlasting flowers or to show us how carrots are cleaned/exported on a daily basis. I am telling you, he's the best driver. He was super friendly, very informative & not just telling things about Ooty. This hotel has its own super-market, so don't fret if you couldn't get home-made chocolates or famous tea or basically anything that Ooty is famous for. Sarkar Super Market ( SSM as it is known around) is one stop shop for all that & more.

"Overall, experience is good"

5.1/7
Posted 14 Oct, 2015

Experience at this hotel is good. Room service and hot water facility is also nice. Very bad experience in terms of food. Ventilation in rooms is very poor. Room fare is reasonable in off-season but very high in season. Overall experience is good. No language problem, everyone speaks English or Hindi.

My stay at this hotel was august 2016 official purpose with friends. The destination was very good. Location of the hotel was centre of the city and was very good. The appearance of the hotel was very good from interior and exterior. There was delay while Check in check out process. Staff of the hotel were friendly and cooperative. The service they provided was very good. The room was not neat and clean and was spacious. Amenities were in working condition. Food facility not available in the hotel. No activities were held in the hotel. Need to improve in room neatness.
