Sorry for replying late.
Your itinerary seems pretty good and well planned. Regarding Coimbatore sight seeing. I would like to say that there are quite a lot of sight seeing options so select according to your preferance of places. If you want to visit temples then you can visit Marudamalai Temple, though i would strongly recommend you to visit there. There is Dhyanalinga Temple but its arnd 29 kms from the city thus that would again include a lot of travelling so you can avoid that, though if you want t visit there, You can. There is a wild life sanctuary which your daughter might enjoy. Kovai Kuttralam is a waterfall whch is another very good destination. Thus, there are quite a few options. You can select one or two sight seeing options. That would not be very tiring m sure.
With regards to your query about selecting a taxi over train. I think that would be a sensible thing to do. Though i am not very sure about the costings. still you can just verify and cross check with different rental portals and then decide.
With your coonoor sight seeing selections you can include Dolphin's nose and Catherine falls in your list. they are quite a travellers favourite.
Eith reagrds to the hotels you selected.You can browse in through holidayiq itself and read the reviews. I am sure it will help you .
I have found this out for you. Reviews on the darshan hotel in Ooty.

Similarly you can check on with the other hotels and make a decision.
I hope my info has helped you. Though m not sure if i have answered all your quries. But this is the best of my info. Rest have a great great trip.
nd yeah a very Happy New Year to you and your family.
I replied in both the forums.
