We went to the Ooty in the month of April 2017. That was a family holiday trip. I booked my stay through online via Goibibo. Com. I booked the executive room. The room was clean and comfortable. The service was provided by them on time. That was a hilly area so the view in front of the hotel was good. I didn't have food in the hotel. The location was easy to reach and beautiful view. I went to the hotel by own vehicle.
We stayed in this hotel for two days from 20th May, 2017 to 22nd May, 2017. We have booked total four rooms at price of Rs. 6, 135 per night per room. Total expenditure for stay in this hotel was Rs. 49, 080 on CP based meal plan. We found that it was our biggest mistake to book this hotel at such high cost. Our expectation was totally wrong and we had terrible experience for this hotel. Even I not ready to give this hotel one rating if I can give it ZERO rating. The rooms have old furniture and fixtures. Laminates of furniture came out from several places. Bathroom door cannot be closed. Very old type of fittings available in bathroom and taps were leaking. Our rooms were booked with extra bed but they provided extra mattress in rooms. Also rooms are so small so, after placing extra mattress there is no enough space to roam in room. On such high price services and facilities are in south north directions. No complementary mineral water, no tea and coffee maker or no hot kettle available in room. When called for drinking water no one come after several follow ups. In one of call one lady manager told me that cooler is just outside room. Indirectly she was giving me direction that I should fill water at myself and that we practice for two days (Thanks to Hotel management). Buffet breakfast is okay and has enough south Indian menu options. But in our group one family was Jain and Hotel had agreed to provide Jain Sambhar. They have definitely provided but it was very late and after several follow up. Finally Jain family managed with Only Idly and plain Dosa without Sambhar. With surprise they repeated same thing on second day also. We had worst experience during dinner. Hotel has more than 50 rooms and their restaurant is so small and cannot accommodate more than 20-25 persons at time. So, they insist us to serve dinner in open terrace outside our room. Here tragedy started. We ordered several items like soup, starters, sabji, Roti, rice, Dale etc. The person first came with soup in jug but put serving bowl and spoons on table. After 20 minutes when soup became almost cool then he came with bowl and soup and that is after several follow ups. Moreover restaurant landline remained always busy and we need to go down several times for reminders. Again after soup, person put all roties on table and forgot to bring sabji. After again 20-30 minutes when roties became cool he brings sabji and that was also less plates than we ordered. They also forgot to serve papads that we ordered. The shameless waiter put bill first to sign without fulfilling complete order. It took more than 2 hours to complete our dinner. After dinner we approached hotel manager Mr. Sharvin and complaint about all things. He assured that we won't have any more troubles till check out. But again during check out they charged all items which were not supplied at last night dinner and the same manager Mr. Sharvin along with restaurant manager Mr. Mohan both were there to complete check out procedure. Both knew about the troubles we faced and complaints that we did during our two days stays but still they wanted us to pay full bill which was charged. Also at check out they do enough delay to put our languages in our bus. As we had train to Coonor, so finally we put our luggage at ourselves in bus. As per my view it is better to stay in any Dharamshala, Atithigruh or any small guest house than to stay in this hotel. This hotel has only one plus point that it has lake view and open terrace in front of rooms at 3rd and 4th floor. If on this point one want to stay in this hotel than don't pay more than Rs. 1000 per night.
