                  Not worth itI was with my wife and old parents. Road to hotel was pretty bad and i would not consider that as my reason for dissatisfaction. I booked mountain view room considering we were on mountains in ooty instead of Garden view. Apparently mountain view rooms are outside the hotel premises like a separate house. Far away from hotel lobby, reception and restaurants. Impossible for my old parents to walk there. I had to ask multiple times for the towels, water, heater and such things. Services were absolutely pathetic. Last but not the least the FOOD, very bad in taste, breakfast was like the worst. We booked for three nights and checked out after 2 nights with no refund for the third night. I will warn anyone to stay here if they are expecting any kind of hospitality and any quality services. Only thing good is the view of mountains from the hotel.

                  Great Place, Not so good foodA little away from the crowd of Ooty town. The access road needed a little bit of fixing especially if you're driving a sedan. The property is really nice and well maintained. The location is too good and provides a good view of Ooty. Staff is courteous and mostly prompt in service. The chef though couldn't cook to save his life. Overall a great experience! Would love to visit again.

                  Bad roads, separate property... too private and quite. Too pricy for money. 7k per night for such a property is too high in Month of August1 2019. too cold. Nothing jn name of sherlock themes except some pics. Pros: nice staff, deluxe rooms are good. standard rooms are bad. Good for people who loves quite, small and private place. heritage type rooms with fire

                  Everything about Sherlock was good. ”

                  Everything about Sherlock was good. Be it their courteous and well-behaved staff, food presentation, cozy bedrooms, the lush green garden filled with multi-colored flowers, fireplace within the room, open area for the guests. Few of the food items like vegetable was missing from the sambhar, They couldn't pull off poori well as compared to north Indian pooris. Also, washroom could be cleaner. Wooden Flooring was old and made lots of noise on walking around. A bit costly on the breakfast side as the items offered couldn't justify the breakfast cost.

                  Cons: 1. Road leading to Sherlock is pathetic and if you don't have your own vehicle it's troublesome to go up and down in city. 2. One way fare from Sherlock to city is ₹250 by auto and that too with too much obligation. 3. Hot water is also an issue in mountain view room, every person has to wait for 20-25 min after one person has taken bath. It should not be a case if you tag yourself as big hotel chain. Pros: 1. View is good from hotel. 2. Food though costly but was good.

                  Great place to cool your heels with friends and family. Nice garden in front of your room. From the garden you have a good view of the town below. Nice place with helpful and cordial staff.

                  The location is great. food was good. We had fire places in all the rooms with was a nice experience. The staff was good. There are not much activities to do in the property like games or books. Could get boring.

                  A wonderful place to stay”

                  The hotel is located in a beautiful location with scenic views. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. Food was superb. They hotel staff could perhaps invest in a heater for the rooms as it can quite chilly and cold. And also put up big visible signs to show the directions to the hotel. Other than that we all enjoyed our stay at this lovely place.

                  Most importantly food is awesome and very reasonably priced with abundant quantity. The road leading to the property is bad-narrow and full of potholes..but at the end dat doesn't matter.

                  Olden run down hotel, managed by Little Earth group, an era gone by, leaving little to be desired.”

                  The shoddy entrance from the gate to the main resort need be spruced up. Having taken the one and only Honeymoon Suite, it was quite a let down, seeing the reality of the room as compared to the photos depicting the same. The small queen bed, the minimal furniture, creaking floor boards, worn out cupboards, bathroom brackets falling off from the wall, fixed hot water timings, and electricity constantly shutting off and on again in the middle of the night sure lend an eerie feeling to the room. The only blessing is when it's daytime, and ur up and about the garden n lawn overlooking the hills, and sipping some tea, that the hangover of the night vanishes. With much better available under the highest category room that we booked, why stay here? Maybe the lower category rooms would opine differently. Facilities can't be compromised based on a heritage theme.

                  Road..where art thou ?”

                  The one kml road uphill to the hotel from the main road below is the worst I have seen in my life anywhere. It is not only too narrow, it is full of potholes the size of craters on both sides making it impossible to drive and make room for an oncoming vehicle. I will return only after the road is fixed, Mr. Owner please take note. Barring the road issue, everything else is awesome . At least get the potholes filled up. Why is the so difficult ? Use yr own money if government doesn’t do it. It won’t cost you more than 10k.

                  Great place,great view of the mountains but it’s away from the madness of Ooty.So if you really want to enjoy the calmness and serenity of Ooty Sherlock is a good place.
