Worse Place to stay. No Hot water supply in the evening. Tourist have to refresh themselves in chilling cold water. In the morning hot water available only after 7.30 AM. Dirty blankets without any covering sheets. Bathroom door locks and basin taps not working properly. Rooms 103-106 are very bad. Sometime you won't find anyone to attend in the reception....

I booked for quadruple room (4 Bedded room)through phone booking and after reaching there they gave me 2 keys of 2 double bedded rooms and saying only that is available. Hopeless hotel, not clean and untidy. Don't even try to stay here in this hotel.

It looked okay from the outside which tempted me to book as it was already late. Rooms were poorly maintained. The first room we booked had no water heater and TV. We politely asked for a...

Ooty seems to top the bucketlist of every backpacer and hence it tops ours as well. Rainbow cottages are the most affordable and offer a semi luxurious stay between the lush green mountains. The staff is so friendly and helpful that they even listen to u even at 3 in the night. Highly advisable!!
