Review of the restaurant, not hotel. Terrible service

Posted 4 Nov, 2016

We didn't stay at the Durga Hotel but we went to eat at the restaurant in the evening one day. First of all, there were several waiters who didn't even come to give us the menu. After calling one several times, he came and said only three things were available. Horrible service and totally not worth it. The appearance is also really bad. Go to the nearby Preethi Palace veg restaurant which has really nice staff, good food at affordable prices.

Located well with good rooms

Posted 15 Jun, 2015

I had visited in Ooty with my friend on 23rd May 2015. We stayed in Durga Hotel, Ooty for 4 night for hill and valley view. Location of this hotel was wonderful and awesome attractive. Outside and interior side look of the hotel was awesome and well decorated. The reception of this hotel is very first and helping and cooperative with travelers. Hotel authority providing good clean and spacious. Rooms was available with all amenities and food is also having best quality but limited items was available in here. Hotel staff and management are very cooperative and service was good. From my experience, hotel was good service, well deprecation, sweet place also nice place for group tour. Hotel Durga is located in the heart of the city, so location wise the hotel is a good option for stay room ambience is also good. Food too was good found good breakfast and dinner with room services.

Centrally located and decent rooms

Posted 10 Oct, 2015

Went to this hotel based on my friends recommendation. It is centrally located on Ettines Road. It wasn't a leisure trip so I would just be using the room for only the night. Day time would be sight seeing. It was in my budget, about 1800. Looks to be a bit old building. Not very posh. Toilets are quite clean but old style. Rooms are clean. You get good view of city. Has their own parking space. Rooms are not posh but you can't complain. The manager/owner was a very nice person. The restaurant attached serves very good food. They have buffet breakfast too. Always crowded that means they serve good food. Recommend if you are not on a leisure trip and if you are not gonna spend much time in room. A bit old fashioned rooms and toilets.

Rooms were spacious clean and well-maintained

Posted 24 Dec, 2014

I did not face any difficulty in finding the hotel as it was in the city in a pleasant locality. The hotel interior and exterior was good. The staff at the hotel were not helpful, friendly and professional that was disappointing. The room was spacious, clean maintained with all the amenities at good condition. I didn't face any delay during check-in and check-out. The food at the restaurant was good with number veg and non-veg varieties. The money spent on the hotel was valuable. I would like to recommend this hotel to others.

Good location but needs some improvements

Posted 9 Feb, 2015

I had been there for a holiday with my family. It is a very nice hotel to stay Pros of this hotel are nice location and in centre of the city, decent veg hotels beside this hotel and autos and tourist taxis available nearby Cons are too much noise of the traffic cause it is on the main road. Bathroom exhaust has no proper cover and it is viewable from the entrance of the hotel. We have to use a Bath towel to cover that exhaust.

Good front office and staff

Posted 16 Sep, 2014

The room was booked through online and it was a package trip. Front office as well as service of staff members was good, polite and professional. I had food, which was I stayed and the food served is a pure vegetarian, the quality was good and it was very tasty. No problem while check in and checks out and there were activities and there was sitting out places. Room was good, neat and well maintained with basic amenities and there was a lake view from the room. It is located just opposite of the lake. I visited this place with family and my native place is Maniacal.
