Nice location, food & enjoyable place


Fine hotel in a very central location. Everything in the center is in walking distance. We enjoyed our stay. Breakfast is also nice and there is something for every taste. The hotel presented very well, the staff were friendly and helpful. Didn't have the buffet breakfast as that was a bit expensive but plenty of alternatives. Would for sure have this hotel in mind when back in Ooty.

Good hotel and comfortable stay


I visited Ooty and stayed in Balaji Cottages was a comfortable stay. The trip was in the month of March 2014 with my friends for relaxation purpose. The hotel is located in the city. Hill and Mountain View was good. Interior appearance of the cottage was good. No delay in check-in and check-out process. Staff service was good and hygienic. The room allotted to me was spacious, mini refrigerator and with basic amenities. Food served to me was good in quality, quantity and many varieties were provided in lunch veg and non-veg food. Camp fire was provided. Over all entire destinations was good. I would like to suggest the hotel for other travellers.

Affordable hotel with all comforts


This hotel does not have any pool. The bed was comfortable and large enough for three people. The quality of mattress is really good as it is smooth yet strong. Quality of television set is nice, but the problem is with the cable options. It had a lot of Tamil channels, very few Kannada and Malayalam and only one Telugu channel. Few Hindi and English were also there. The staff was really nice with people. They responded to our requests quickly, but the delivery was little late as they were new in hotel management. Housekeeping kept the house clean. There are numerous restaurants in the radius of 1km which includes expensive and inexpensive ones. My advice is while going for sight seeing do not hire any Traveller cars (that is actually a good business there). Because they take 14 people in their traveller car and their aim is to cover most of the places in one day. Each place is far from other so travelling consumes lot of time and you hardly left with 20 to 30 min at each place which does not let you live the place. So my advice is to go by circuit bus run by govt of Tamilnadu and roam as much as you want.

Amazing experience; comfortable stay


Actually we went to Industrial visit to Ooty from our college. At that time we stayed in Sri Balaji cottages. We were excited more with the room arrangement and facilities. It was located in centre of the city and it was very comfortable for us to stay with large number of people. It was a nice trip with Balaji Cottages.

Good appearance and interior


I stayed in the hotel on a relaxation trip with my family for two days. The hotel appearance interior and exterior was good. I did not face any issue in this hotel. There was no activities and sightseeing trip in the hotel. I travelled by bus. My hometown is Bangalore and the mother tongue is Kannada. Improve the cleanliness in the hotel. There was no WiFi facility. Parking facility was available. I had food outside and taste of food was good. I had vegetarian food in the hotel.

Lovely location but food not to my liking


The location of this resort was lovely. The booking was done on the spot and I faced no problem at check-in and check-out. The reception people were very cooperative. The rooms were very neat and clean. The big problem here was food not to our liking; even though I was ready to pay more. Even the roadside hotel did not provide food to my liking. One day we cooked our own food. I visited this place in October 2013 with my family and friend.

Good stay; friendly staff & prompt service


The hotel location was conveniently located and it was near to the bus stop. Staff at the hotel was friendly and quick in services. The room provided was spacious, clean and maintained with basic facilities. There was a view from the room. The food quality was good. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. There were no activities conducted by the hotel management. It was relaxation trip in the month of May 2013. My money which I spend on the hotel was valued and I would like to recommend this hotel for others. I suggest providing cab facilities to pick up and dropping facility .

Cottage price is reasonable

Posted 23 Jul, 2014

The hotel is like a house, it has 2 rooms and a hall, we were 5 of us and it was comfortable. The location is close to the bus stand. The room was booked directly and the price was reasonable. The food was excellent, coffee was complimentary and there was a room service. They have tie-up with local transport for sightseeing and they have a package depending upon the places. The Ooty Lake is about 5 km from the location. There is no intercom or bell facility to call for room service; we need to go all the way to the reception. The hotel is very much recommendable and there is a parking space available.

Economical and recommendable stay

Posted 23 Jul, 2014

The hotel is located one and half a kilometers from the bus stand. It is situated near a botanical garden, but far from the lake. Good parking space and 24 hour room service. The tariff was Rs. 800 for four people; it is economical & recommendable for families to stay. There are cottages and rooms were available, with very old fashioned style and there is no room view. Food is not available, but there are restaurants around the hotel, but the food taste was average. They have travel desk for sightseeing and campfire will be arranged at extra cost.

Peaceful and relaxing atmosphere

Posted 20 Mar, 2012

The cottage is a very clean place to visit. The nature around and in the place so awe inspiring. The spacing between the individual outlets are nice giving a neat calmness and a relaxing isolation. Loved every aspect of the place. The staff here go about their business silently but that is the problem as they would hardly give an ear to the needs or requests of the customers. The rooms can me mode a little more spacious.
