This is a really good place to stay in ooty. The view is awesome. The place is a little far from the city centre, almost near the Doddabeta peak and the tea factories and thus has an amazing view. The service is good, rooms are decent, staff is friendly and the restaurant and bar is good and very modestly priced....
