Stayed two nights. Loved the colonial feel of the hotel just up on the hill above the town of Coonoor. Particularly having a small study area with a fireplace. We passed on the toy train to Ooty but enjoyed a day walking up to Sims Park and then down into the hustle and bustle of the town before escaping back to manicures lawns and watching the mist roll over the hills. A jumper is really needed here in the evenings. The only disappointment was the restaurant. High prices but not high quality. We suspect tinned mushrooms was a key ingredient of our mushroom and pea curry, and my stir fried Bhindi was well over salted. Serving popadoms was a nice touch but no sauces or chutneys to go with it. And why is hot food served on cold plates? Even though I can see a warm plate contraption in evidence. Lovely dinning room but lacked any real sophistication which was a shame. Otherwise an enjoyable stay.
