We spent one night in Wall Wood Garden in December and found out, that this is not the perfect time for this place. It was very cold and rainy outside and the radiator in the room could not make the room very warm so that it was all the time very cool and damp.
Besides this, the room was very nice decorated with old colonial furniture and we had tea/coffee-facilities and a TV. The bathroom was also very nice, clean and good equipped.
In the main building, breakfast and dinner was served - which was good. There they also had a large room, where you can sit in front of the chimney.
In the summer time this place must be great.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Two hours from Coimbatore, in the heart of upper Coonoor, lies Wallwood Garden. Earlier known as Blair Atholl – it was built over a hundred years ago by a Scottish Major General, hailing from the village Blair Athol in Scotland. The Duke of Atholl still lives in Scotland in his own castle. Wallwood was later sold to a British couple after the First World War, who ran it as a boarding house for many years. It was purchased by Liptons before the Second World War and the house has remained in the hands of tea companies – currently with Matheson Bosanquet. The Mansion has retained the atmosphere of the past when tea estates had their own lifestyle ! It has its own prize-winning garden of the Nilgiris overlooking a unique pomological garden. It is located two minutes from Sim’s Park, one of India’s most luxuriant Botanical Gardens, laid out in 1874 with over 1200 species of plants and many old rare trees like the Rudraksh, Paperwood, Elephant Leg, Strawberry Tree etc. Savour the wildlife sanctuaries of Ooty, Pykara, Kotagiri & Bandipur, driving through the lush tea plantations of the Nilgiris. ... more less
