The hotel has a pretty good location even the view from the room given to us was really good. Just I few things which I feel can be looked after. The size of the room was average it could be a little big bigger for the standard of the hotel. Also the room service could be a little faster. Other than that it was great outing and I recommend staying here on your next trip.

Thank you for your review. Our three-level landscaped garden with a majestic view of the Ooty town and the Blue Mountains is a unique attraction of the resort. You have pointed out certain areas of improvement for which we thank you. We shall definitely look into those aspects to offer even better guest experience.
We look forward to welcoming you again at Sinclairs Retreat Ooty or to our six other hotels/resorts at Siliguri, Darjeeling, Dooars, Kalimpong, Burdwan and Port Blair. We assure you of a great stay.
The hotel is located close to the Tea Factory at Ooty, which is about 3-4 km away from Charring Cross and other central areas. Getting to Doddabetta peak is very easy from this hotel. From the Tea Factory itself, the road is very narrow and not really in the best condition. Once you enter the hotel, their lawns are actually 3 levels lower from the lobby. The lawns are beautiful and huge. The restaurant is at the lobby level along with a balcony, and a souvenir shop. They have rooms that face their lawn, and rooms that face the backside of the hotel, which overlooks the road from the tea factory. Because of the wonderful weather, they don't have fans or air conditioners in the rooms. The room is decently spacious with all the amenities that you come to expect of a 3/4 star hotel. The only grouse I had was that the bathroom is unreasonably small. The shower cubicle is extremely small, and not very comfortable for a tall person. There is no tap in the shower cubicle, so you are forced to use only the shower. The other issue with the bathroom is that there is no exhaust fan, which is quite an issue when the bathroom and the commode are so close by, and the smell in the bathroom lingers since there is no ventilation, and no exhaust fan . Room service is pretty good though. Service is prompt, though quite expensive as compared to eating in the restaurant. That is something I suggest potential guests keep in mind. The food in the restaurant is pretty good. There is a buffet spread, but a-la chart options are restricted to what is available in the buffet. Breakfast buffet is pretty good and the spread was a pleasant surprise. The only improvement I would suggest is an increase in the choice of fresh juices . Overall, for the price they charged, I'd say this is a value for money place. Location is probably slightly inconvenient, and the bathrooms definitely need to be bigger.

We visited in December 2015. The hotel is well maintained and the gardens are beautiful. The location is a plus since it is not in the midst of the chaos of the town. It is a little higher up and you can get a very good view. The rooms were excellent, maintained and clean. Service was prompt and courteous Reception was very helpful in booking local sightseeing trips. The food is very good - even something as simple as "khichdi" is delicious. It is advisable to have a single car booked for your entire trip - then you can go into the town at any time without having to call for transport. The toiletries provided are of very good quality. There are various indoor games like carom, chess, table tennis, badminton, etc. Aroma oil lamps burning in the corridors give a lovely fragrance. I really enjoyed my stay and would love to stay there again if I visit Ooty again.
