Lake view - The most important piece missing is the view of the lake. Only a handful of the cottages (first row - near the lake) get a piece of the view - the rest have to be content with the view of other cottages. Location - Good Food - Good (though expensive) Service - Average (the servers do not... More

Very nice property. The hotel is nicely spread over an area and feel very spacious. The cottages are good and cosy. Definitely worth the money. The food is but costly and not that great. The location is very near to Ooty lake and boat house is just a walk.

We took the villas facing the lake.. as they are villas one gets very minimal room service..its recommended to have food at the restaurant of the main building as food gets cold by the time room service would bring it to you...rooms though are nice comfortable..villas have fire places which can be lit with extra pay and request...food is good.....

This is very good resort near Ooty Lake, around 500 mtrs walkable distance. Resort has many cottages and every cottage comes with fireplace. But this fireplace is of no use as it is insufficient in Winter. They provide room heater also(as they mentioned, we missed that notification), you can try one, if visiting in Winter. We somehow did not ask... More

Hi everyone, I keep traveling every month. When I visited this hotel I felt its good because as they say ITS HOTEL LAKEVIEW but you can't view lake from hotel. However, Hotel is very good and cheap also neat and clean.

The property is beautiful - especially during summer/winter time, that's when Ooty is at it's best. It is one of the few hotels that ISN'T a concrete jungle and entails more than bare necessities. Each cottage comes with a tiny little green set up where you (usually) have a garden table: perfect for the morning cup of chai. The rooms... More

1) Costly then other hotels. 2) Very few cottages available having a Lake view facing. 3) Poor service, they denied giving us "Rajai" even though i paid for extra person. 4) Bed was noisy, other partner gets disturbed when taking turn on the bed. 5) Muddy water in bathroom. Can't take bath or do brush. :( (Pic attached)
