Good Rooms

Posted 20 Jun, 2017

For the holiday trip. I Visited Ooty. I stayed in Vel Green Castle Hotel. I went there in the month of December 2016 along with my family. I booked this hotel through online. The Location of the hotel was good. It was nearby the bus stand. No pickup and drop facility. The Appearance of the hotel was nice. The interior and exterior look of the hotel was very old. The Reception was good to welcome us. They didn't delay and very friendly at the time of check in and check out. The Room was superb. It was hygienic and spacious. The food was terrible. No food facility and even water bottle also not available. The services were good. No WiFi facility and no swimming pool. Apart from the food overall this hotel was nice. I didn't suggest this hotel to anyone for the stay. I suggested the hotel management to provide food.

Excellent services and rooms

Posted 3 Sep, 2014

It is a best hotel. Hotel was located near to the Botanical Garden. As a place, Ooty is very good. Location of the hotel was also very good. It was near to bus stand. It was around 2 km. Transportation facility was not provided by the hotel side. Appearance of the hotel was good. Check-in and check-out procedure was easy so it was excellent. Services of the staff were also excellent. Rooms were superb. They were spacious and all. Activities were average there. Breakfast was complimentary. Overall, food was very good. Swimming pool was there and it was really good. I went there alone in August 2013. It is value for your money and recommendable to all.

Good hotel it should be maintained

Posted 14 Jun, 2017

I went to Ooty during the month of February 2017 and booked the rooms in the Vel%5Cs Green Castle. It was my holiday trip with friend. The city Ooty was good as it is joyful. The hotel location was very good as it is nearest to the market place. I would rate the appearance of the hotel as good as it is very clean. I would rate the front desk staff as very good as they are friendly and provided correct information. I booked my room through online. I would rate the services in the hotel were average. The rooms at the hotel were very good with comfortable beds and neat bathroom. The hotel food was good as we like the taste and ambience.

Fair hotel to stay with family but average service

Posted 5 Aug, 2015

The hotel is located conveniently as the hotel provided pick-up and drop facilities. The food provided at the hotel was very goof in lots of varieties. The appearance of the hotel was good. The staff at the hotel were good in services. There was no delay during sign in and sign out process. The room was good but there were no proper instructions, so it made us to feel difficult. There were no room services too. The amenities provided at the hotel were good and working properly. There was a good view from the room. As per as my stay the hotel was good to stay. I visited this hotel in the month of March with family. The hotel is worth for the money and I recommend this hotel to other travellers.
