We stayed two nights at Sherlock, and were almost the only guests there! Situated in a beautiful location, lovely views and a lovely old colonial hotel. We took a package which included a walk to and entry into the tea factory and and an early morning walk to the local dam, which was beautiful. Food was good, though pricier than...

My wife had researched this hotel up and suggested this place to be our refuge away from the heat and dust of Chennai. The hotel takes one back to the days of the British Raj as they say, the moment one lays foot on the property. But there was more to that, this being a Sherlock Holmes themed hotel, the...

1. Be aware of the cancellation policy, if you cancel the amount will be held for 1 year with them for another holiday and not refunded. 2. The property is in good location and maintained well.

I had been to Sherlock on 01-May-2015 for 2 days & I have to say it is one of the best place to relax in Ooty. It has scenic at its best around it & food was excellent. Thanks for the cherishing memories for the whole sherlock staff.

Sherlock is situated at Ooty's best kept secret - Thalyitumundu. A small road just before ChicKing restaurant in the central district leads you to a fairly uninhabited place behind Doddabetta Mountain. The road is fine except for the last stretch. The property is really pretty with mostly muddled, sincere, eager to please staff who make your stay even more memorable....

This was a property with old English charm, true to its name! The views of the rolling Nilgiris were spectacular! The lush green porch like extended was a delight to sit at and enjoy these views over hot cups of coffee and tea. Service was great. The only downside was that we had to keep hiring expensive auto rickshaws to...

Very much an "English" style hotel, well suited to the feel of the Ooty countryside. It's a bit out of town, and a lonnnnng walk up hill (or an auto ride, but I like my walking) but such a beautiful and sophisticated little hotel. Amazing service, quaint little rooms and stunning views. If the price is within your budget then...
