Nest is a beautiful place .Not very expensive but it is extremely cosy, charming and well-maintained. Its the best compared to other hotels.

The outerview and surrounding of Nest-
The Nest is situated on top of hill and gives bit of Coonoor view. The lush green lawn in front of our superior cottage in warm sun enjoying the cool breeze in the morning. Feels heavenly sitting n sipping hot tea or coffee. There?s a swing for the mind to hurrily wander away from worries of daily life and that makes you that WE ARE ON VACATION!!!!!!!!!

Best Experience: The room flooring is wooden look a like and a big queen bed. each and every thing in the room is handpicked for example Curtains,bedsheets , warmers and even the plastic untensils in the room. all rooms have different Themes in different colours.

Simple 21-inches TV and wooden wardrobe and the most interesting a \'Camp Fire Place\'. I was really excited and happy to get the Camp Fire Place lit in the evening. The room was provided with a warmer even.

Care Taker:
Ravi was very polite and services were good. So can think the place was value for money he even took care of us . Overall i rate this place (9/10)

Worst Experience: NIL

We were on the lookout for a homestay/cottage kind of place where we could stay as we were headed to ooty for a holiday and dog show with our 2 boxers! After a zillion calls we hit upon \'The Nest\'. Mrs.Chandra who spoke to us assured us that they were dog lovers too and that our dogs are most welcome! This sealed the deal and we headed to experience the hospitality of ‘The Nest’. We were not disappointed as Mrs.Chandra was on the phone as soon as we reached Ooty and guided us to the place. ‘The Nest’ is about 30-45 mints drive from Ooty city adorned by beautiful tea estates and wonderful scenery all the way. Once there, we were met with Ravi – the caretaker. Ravi, i must add is Hospitality with a capital ‘H’.He welcomed us warmly and before we knew it, he had taken care of all our unpacking needs as we settled down sipping hot tea in the veranda watching the mountains and the sun go down!
‘The Nest’ has 2 bedrooms, a dining room and a kitchen. We had taken up the complete cottage to accommodate 5 of us and the dogs. The first thing we noticed about the rooms was that it was all squeaky clean and well maintained. The Bathrooms were in good condition too with individual geysers and hot water round the clock! Not expecting any modes of entertainment, we were pleasantly surprised to find TV’s with dish connection and a DVD player and a few DVD’s too! The USP of the rooms was the bay windows which opened to the mountains. It was a great sight to sit and watch the mist clear over the mountains early in the morning. Ravi also helped us spot some bison’s that had come grazing towards the foothill of the mountains..This caused quite a bit of excitement at 6:00 am completely waking us all...Including the tired dogs!
In all, ‘The Nest’ is a wonderful place away from all the commercialization of Ooty and it is totally worth the drive. Ravi’s culinary skills had us asking for more – infact we did borrow some of his recipes as we left! The cottage was cosy and nice with a lot of attention being given to details and the scenery was breathtaking! In all it was a wonderful trip..The icing on the cake being the super performance of our dogs in the show. We owe it all to the ‘The Nest’ and will be back soon!

Worst Experience: none

A lovely place to stay. Its really a home away from home, in the midst of nature, with beautiful surroundings and all the facilities like TV, hot water, microwave, refrigerator etc.
Very friendly and helpful caretaker was provided.

Best Experience: The home cooked food was excellent.
