“Expensive and Pretty average”
Reviewed 7 July 2011

The only good thing about this hotel is its right at the heart of the city. Just near the main city fountain. The hotel is well built with lots of rooms, but the Price of Rs 1500 + 250(tax) for a standard non-Ac room, is very expensive.

Although the room was clean and so was the washroom, the woodwork in the room was below par, the walls were dirty, gave a very bad ambiance. The room was spacious though.

One more good thing was the hotel room we got was east facing and the sunlight filled the room in the morning, the restaurant is just pathetic if you are looking for anything other than the south indian food (idli sambhar, rasam and rice) The room service is like non-existant.

Rooms are just ok, nothing great to talk about, the breakfast was pathetic, so was the food, wouldnt recomend it to anyone, only plus point is its close to the market (walkable distance).
There are better places around ooty.

the hotel is near to all local sight-seeing places.the market is walkable distance.the reception staff are cooperative in arranging local tours by bus/cab.the rooms are neat but the toilets are to be improved.The food is delicious and tasty.There is more space for parking. the hotel is the best for the travellers that are coming on 4-wheelers and coming as a group.During my stay, 28 families came by 45 seater bus and stayed for 2 days.

Room Tip: deluxe room is good to stay.

I & my wife recently had a chance to visit Ooty for a 2 days leisure trip from which out of the many hotels displayed on the net, the one that picked out was the Ooty Gate Hotel. We decided to go for this place for the reviews that proved to be very encouraging and so we booked the super delux room after seeing the beautiful pictures on the net. We were first given Room 307belonging to the super delux rooms, which to our astonishment didn't look anything as the pic on the net, moreover the bathroom flush was not working and the wardrobe door had an attitude problem from closing at all. The wall paintings really needs a touchup. From our personal request, we were shifted to another Room 310,which was a bit better compared to the previous room, for which atleast the warderobe door did its part of the job of closing properly, but the ceilings really needed a solid plastering and touchup, as for the bathroom flush it was working, but the water heater decided to shut down completely. The final Room 301 was a much much better room from the others, must have been some kind of a VIP room as the ambience felt different from the previous rooms. The one plus point I found was the the staff swere very helpful and polite. What I want to stress to the managment is that once in a while a regular check-up on the rooms should be made mandatory for keeping up the current reputation which they uphold atleast in the 2star catagory of hotels.
