    Experience the old world charm of a gorgeous Ooty manor built in 1865, complete with lip-smacking South Indian / Sri Lankan food. Surrounded by scenic beauty, Milton Abbot is perfect for estate walks or morning treks to the Ooty Golf Course. Tucked away from the crowds, this charming 4.5-acre estate in Ooty is a heavenly retreat.

    A superb vintage property ....lovely sun filled massive rooms with sloping roofs, eye catching upholstery and comfortable beds. The caretaker Mr Lionel and his wife(also the cook )...are wonderful and warm. We had many a lip smacking meals...soups, appams and stew, hot vadas ...chicken curry to name a few. The fact that a walk around the property will fill your senses with the heady aroma of eucalyptus , is an added bonus. We were travelling with kids and had to never look out for any additional entertainment for the kids...they were busy tinkering about in the garden ...or playing some board games. we loved this place and would definitely like to go back there soon.

    Wonderful experience in a British style bungalow with one of the most beautiful garden I have seen. Excellent hospitality services with great food.

    This place is 3-4kms away from city. Located in a very calm place near golf club. Initially it was difficult to locate the place because nobody there recognises by its name saffron stays. You got to ask for Milton estate. The house and stay is cosy and extraordinary. It is exactly the same what they show in pictures. No filters. You can find the bathroom to be modern with glass showered enclosure but rest of all were heritage type with wooden floors, fireplace inside the house, big wooden dining table etc., and second best part is the food and hospitality. Mr. Lionel is a great host and Mrs. Lionel is a great cook. She plays around all cuisines and served neatly. You should definitely try their food before trying anywhere else. And cost is also reasonable 250 per head for non veg lunch and 100 for veg bf.This place is perfect to burn your stress and simply hog.

    Stayed here with my husband last weekend on my first trip to Ooty. I must say I was a little hesitant to book a property with absolutely no reviews, but the customer care at Saffron Stays promised me that the property would match the photographs on their website, and that the service would be impeccable too. And boy did this place live up to their word and more! Milton Abbot house is a gorgeous old English bungalow located within a 6 acre property close to Ooty's golf course, about 3 kilometers from the Railway Station. The house has 4 spacious guestrooms, all furnished and decorated elegantly. The living room and dining area are common spaces. The room we stayed in had a four poster bed, a little seating nook by large windows opening out to the backyard garden, an attached dressing/ extra room with a bed for kids and an attached bathroom with modern amenities. The property is actually a guest house owned by Ador Welding Co and has been recently opened out to the public through

    Clean and comfortable rooms. great service, lots of indoor games and delicious food. The caretakers are wonderful hosts. The resort is on a quiet road but very close to the heart of the city. Worth a visit!

    How much awesome some place can be!!! It was one of the best stays I have ever had. Staff, hospitality, location, in short i don't have words to describe. Just don't have a second thought, I m sure you will never regret. Do try the 1st meal from them and I m sure you will end up having breakfast, lunch, dinner at Saffronstays only. We had lunch there as we arrived at 11, then we went out and rushed back on time to not miss the dinner!! Everything is rocking. Thanks Saffronstays(Special Mention to Linonel and the team to make our stay comfortable . :)
