This property looks awesome in photos. We went for what it looks on various travel websites and were shocked and surprised. Let me list out my notable observations for this place. 1. This place is out of town. 2. Very picturesquely located. 3. Beautiful exteriors. Period. Once you reach here, you will feel that you have reached an abandoned bungalow. With no one in sight and no one responding to honking and shouting out, you are left with the only option of calling the owner. It would take anything between 15 - 20 minutes for help to arrive. Once they are there, you will wish they had not come at all. They are absolutely callous beyond giving you the keys and collecting your luggage. Water, tea, food, anything is almost impossible to get. After spending around 1 hour trying to settle down, we decided to move out. The staff suddenly sprung into action to our surprise offering us to get us into one of the other few properties of the same owner. Each one of them look equally beautiful with absolutely same service. Since we had already lost a lot of time in shuttling around the hilly town we decided to put up in the property closest to the main market. Trust me, the service was the worst I have ever received in a hotel. Don't stay here
The place is situated close to Ooty's picturesque Finger Post locality and provides good access to nearby sightseeing locations as well as Ooty town. The hotel needs better upkeep and signboards to direct visitors without confusing them with the wrong address. It took me over an hour to find the hotel. Checking in was not a problem, but the casual attitude of the staff took me by surprise For a start, every requirement from towels to drinking water to coffee took continuous prodding with the staff who are not available in sufficient numbers and have no training on how to provide proper customer service. The owners stay elsewhere and have no idea how the property is being mismanaged There were no good hotels or shopping centres nearby to even buy a bar of soap (getting which also required a good number of reminders). Stay here only if patience and tolerance are among your good qualities. Instead, avoiding the place altogether would be a better way of maintaining your blood pressure at normal levels.
