Spacious room and professional staff

Posted 2 Jan, 2015

It's near the botanical gardens with good location overall. Staff was professional and hygienic. Didn't put in any extra requests, so won't be able to comment on the speed of service. Rooms were spacious and well maintained. Pillows, blankets everything was well maintained. Appearance was average and the ambiance was good. TV and geyser was available and no AC was needed. Hot water available at all times. Didn't take food in the hotel, and ate only from outside. Went with family for a relaxation trip. No extra activities like pool, gym, games etc. Didn't check with them for a sightseeing trip, I had my own car. Good value for money.

Served pure vegetarian with transport facility

Posted 23 Dec, 2014

They provided vehicle to pick up and drop facility. It was located near to the botanical garden and hotel appearance, exterior and interior were very good and food served by staff. The food served was pure vegetarian, less spicy with good quality and very tasty. Room was spacious with good furniture, neat and well maintained with good working basic amenities and there was a garden view from the room. Staff were good, polite, helpful and cooperative. No issues at the time of check-in and check-out and there were no activities. If required they arrange a vehicle for sightseeing places. It was worth to pay for this hotel room cost, it is recommendable to other travellers. I went here with family for relaxation and my native place Mumbai and mother tongue Telugu.

Very good stay and enjoyed a lot

Posted 5 Jan, 2016

Very good stay and enjoyed a lot. Near by to garden and as far as location one of the best hotel in Ooty. Very much suitable for all sections of people. But cost is bit higher and not vary between seasonal and nonseasonal time. Cost should be low at non seasonal time between Oct to Dec. Same price through the year is not acceptable

Staff at the reception were very helpful and co-or

Posted 18 Dec, 2013

I visited OOTY in the month of November 2013 with my family. It was family trip for relaxing OOTY is a beautiful HILL STATION and Hotel Vinayaga Inn is one of the best hotel to stay for a family visit. Hotel location is very scenic with a full mountain view and it is very close to market , shops , and botanical Garden. Staff at the reception were very helpful and co-ordial. Also restaurant serves very good food and they also assist in sightseeing with a seperate travel desk. I was surprise with the service as i checked in at 2.30 am in the terrible cold. I would be very happy to stay again in this hotel and also to recommend others.
