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.

As I stood taking photographs from across the street one of the young men beckoned me to join them; clearly I was not going to be allowed to be a passive spectator! They ...

... went to get some dinner, while we were ordering we invited a guy from another table to join us. His name was Scott and he was from the USA, he had told us that he had been in Ooty for 5 weeks and was going to stay for another 2 months, we were pretty stunned at that fact, but he said he was traveling with his girlfriend and they rented an apartment and bought a motor bike and made friends. We were also asked another solo traveler to join us for dinner a bit later on, her name was ...
