    It was really a pleasant stay for us. First thing I want to highlight is the food they provide. It was really delicious and the price was affordable. The staff there was really helpful and stood by our needs. The only drawback which I felt is the lack of a TV unit inside the room. It will be really useful for those people who just want to sit and relax and don't want to travel around much.

    The staff was very courteous and helpful. The lunch prepared was very homely and tasty. The beds in the room we stayed could have been better and overall amenities could have been provided better. Overall the stay and experience was very good.

    Staff and Meals take home the prize. Lionel, Alvin, Uday, Gokul and the gardner Ramesh are priceless people. This is one property which we will undoubtedly visit again on our every trip to Ooty for the following reasons: 1. Food is fantastic !! Its much better than any other restaurant out there. 2. The place is on an important road but is nestled between greens so much that there is hardly any noise. 3. Gardner's upkeep of the place is really good and Lionel is super proud of his achievements at the flower competition - this explains why any green lover would go back. 4. Location of the place is bang on !!! You can just step out for a walk and the 2.5km on Old Pyakara Rd through the golf course is marvelous at any time of the day. 5. The place is really well maintained, its a 155y+ old property but the owners have done a great job of keeping it going.

    We stayed for two nights. Very peaceful place. The staff were warm and friendly. The manager Lionel was in touch with us a week before our checkin. He ensured that our checkin was smooth and managed everything else. The menu was simple but the chef did a good job. Due to the proximity to the downtown and major tourist attractions, you don't need to drive too long.

    Awesome property.. but it's not very clean. Don't mind paying about a Rs.1000 to get a cleaner rest room and common areas.. we saw used socks in the cupboard and lots of hair in the bed. Staff were very friendly and service was good.. food was great..
