The morning, a pleasant view welcomed us as if to reward us for our efforts with a panoramic view of the hills around enveloped in green with a burst of colour and the chirping of birds A hearty breakfast later (why is that most resorts can't think up of any better breakfast than idlis, eggs and the corn flakes) we took to exploring the sights and sounds of Ooty namely the lake, typical boating, the famous toy train ride, a few trotting horses, a couple of locations where most south Indian films are shot and the nearby tourist destinations like the rose garden, botanical garden and the needle point just to name a few The resort offers in-house adventure activities like a rockwall, rope walk, zorbing, paint ball shooting and some indoor sports like table tennis, carrom, chess etc. They do have an inviting Spa to soothe your ruffled muscles and calm your senses before the dream weekend break goes poof The chef here could do with a lesson or two in creative cooking. Food was a sad affair with just basic simple rasam, Sambhar, kadhi, Dale veggies and paneer with rice and a couple of bread puddings or Gulab jamun at most to call it a dessert. The non veg section was pathetic with a mish-mash of what looked like threadbare chicken and some mess called local fish which raised a stink, was full of thorns (bones) and tasted worse. The croissants and bread butter were any day better than the tandoori Rotis and non-existent naans Nights were a feeble attempt to keep the guests involved around a circle of fire with popular Hindi music blared by their in-house makeshift DJ and a voiceover artist who could belt out some golden oldies with elan The folks who were visible at this resort were some corporate executives on a freebie incentives stay as a reward for meeting their sales targets. A couple of families like us who had some overdue weeks on our time share account. And a love lost dew eyed couple who had nary a care for anything but themselves Overall, they have an excellent location (that's hard to locate) that has immense potential if only they could shrug off their lethargy and raise their standards of & be service and hospitality.
A good hotel with a prestigious group. The hotel was a bit old but the amenities given were good. The room promised was a twin suite but we got a disappointment, as the proposed rooms were full so newly renovated rooms that were the size of a matchbox were given as the hotel was full The service regarding food & beverages is slow and the hotel management was not very good. The staff at the front office were courteous but the service given by other housekeeping staff was not very up to the mark. A bit of a disappointment but as it was our honeymoon, we decided to enjoy it to the maximum The food was great and they had a good spread of food at dinner as well as breakfast. Even their la-carte dinner was equally enthralling The view was great from the restaurant front and the room was overlooking a mini garden that was full of flowers of spring. The hotel is spread out in a good estate and we had a great time looking around the grounds with its myriad flowers and gardens Overall, it was a nice experience that we had !!
I along with my wife and daughter visited FERN HILL, STERLING HOLIDAY RESORT at Ooty in October. 2014 for five nights. It was Leisure Holiday Pickup and Drop was arranged by Resort. It was nice journey from Coimbatore Airport to Resort. As we approached Ooty the weather was very cool. On reaching Ooty it started Drizzling At the Reception we had very warm welcome. Our Deluxe Room was upgraded to Suite with no extra cost. Resort people provided us big umbrellas to Rome around the Resort; since it was raining almost every afternoon The decor in the room was good, beds were soft, over all the Suite was well-furnished, clean and maintained. Suite was very comfortable. Room service as well as Housekeeping was very good. Staff was very polite, mannered and cooperative Resort has lot of activities every day.
