Fantastic Old Colonial Building set in well kept gardens. Rooms are in outbuildings consisting of linked bungalows with "teak" flooring and real fireplaces which will be lit on request. Buffet food was varied and good quality although the food should have been hotter. The waiting staff in restaurant were plentiful but their efficiency could be improved. I ordered a drink before starting my meal but didn't arrive until I "reminded" the management of my order. They were very apologetic and tried to correct but it was too late.
I would recommend this hotel if you are prepared to chase the waiting staff in the restaurant.

But their schoolboys still wear very British uniforms, and Charing Cross is still there. We went to the Charing Cross Post Office to buy stamps for our postcards.

... frustrating knowing that these sort of injuries would inevitably receive surgical fixation back home, but in the absence of radiography or advanced surgical kit, we simply straightened it under anaesthesia and put a cast on to see if it would fuse in that position or need amputation.
The work done, Ilona drove Devi and me into Ooty. Devi had to visit the doctor so I took a tuc-tuc to the lake, a popular tourist spot. It cost 5 rupees (about 7p) to access the lake side ...
... worst Xmas pudding i have ever tasted..as a starter!! However all this festive fun was completely overshadowed by being subjected to the scariest thing i have ever seen, I'll call him "Indiclause". After the carol singers finally shut up the stereo was put on, and played a song that was defiantly some tortured chip-monks singing "happy happy happy happy christmass" over and over again, as we listened none of ...
... few hours was like a game of chicken on the roads, but we started the ascent to Ooty which is about 2200 meters above sea level, so it was nice to see the views and some tea plantations as we got higher. There are many hairpins on the road up and people over take the bus on the hairpins, it's so crazy, even trucks overtake buses on mountain roads.
We finally arrived into Ooty and stayed at the Reflections hotel. In the lonely planet it describes the hotel as "overlooking a lake" ...
