First of all this hotel is quite far from the heart of Ooty, and it's difficult to find transport to and from the hotel. When we made our booking, we were told it's 2-3 km from the bus stand - it's not, it's a lot more than that The hotel has great facilities, like a play area, ping pong, library, etc. There's also a little souvenir store. If sightseeing is not on your Ooty agenda, the hotel has enough recreational facilities on the premises, including a little "hut" that sells tea between 4 and 7 pm However, if sightseeing is on your agenda, you can ask the reception to arrange a cab for you, and wait until your day is wasted. If you're lucky, and a cab does eventually arrive after hours of waiting, the driver will charge more than the amount that was agreed upon before the trip and insist you pay him directly, even as the hotel adds it to your total bill The room itself was good, but a little small, given the price. The bathroom - well, let's just say a little cleanliness would've been nice. We called them up to clean it once, and lay out a mat, but about an hour later, when we called again, they claimed to not know anything about our earlier request Similarly, at the breakfast buffet, any time you have to place an for items like omelettes, for instance, be prepared to repeat it several times, and wait. Waiting is an integral part of your stay at Accord Highland, whether you like it or not The day we checked out, we asked the reception to book a cab for us to take us to town. But here's the thing - we've checked out, money's transferred hands. So if the staff was less than enthusiastic before, by now they're at the peak of their indifference. We followed up every fifteen minutes for one and a half hours, but no cab came, after which we decided to walk to the jeep stand. Let me mention, from the entrance to the gate of the hotel is a slightly steep climb, and it's not a short walk either. We had luggage, and a kid; no help whatsoever was offered (after which, we had to walk further to the jeep stand - at least the view was green and beautiful) Granted there's a lot to do here, but is it really worth the attitude of the staff, mediocre food, and someone else's hair in the bathtub? Ask yourself that before you make a booking.
Booked almost at last minute for summer holidays. Hotel is 3-4 km from Ooty so choose this only if you have own vehicle. It's also bit difficult to locate unless you have GPS as it's off the Doddabetta road (on Kotagiri road). Please itself is quite decent - only negatives are absence of lifts (so choose room on lower floors) and presence of lot of monkeys. Ooty was also unseasonably warm when we went there so had to keep the windows open but was constantly on alert against monkeys and mosquitoes Plus points are friendly and attentive staff, great food at their restaurant and of course a plethora of games for young kids. They have Kinect games and other board games but best of all is the bowling machine which is totally free. They also have nice bonfire in the evenings. So it's a good place for families with kids.
The hotel is at one of the best locations in Ooty. The staff is very friendly. Must mention the hotel play area has wide choice of entertainment. Its like a resort, and you can do everything in the hotel - enjoy the view food and in-house entertainment and sporting activities.
This is the first time I have been to this hotel, but it was well worth the money. We booked one of the Valley View Rooms. Room was clean and tidy. They provided complimentary snacks, fruits and Tea / Coffee. They also offers complimentary Dinner and Breakfast with wide choice of dishes. Overall we had a great experience at Accord Highland with good memories.
The hotel is located just before the city. We arrived in the wee hours, and was slightly taken aback by the appearance. I had selected this spot for the reviews, and the scenery, but was a bit disappointed. We had indoor DJs, singalong - which was a great treat to the family. The best thing was the food - excellent taste, variety and homely - neither too spicy nor too bland. No one in our group ever had a problem. For the elderly, they had customized the group buffet to accommodate the request. Good indoor activities. As the title suggests, we had full three day to our disposal - entirely spent at the resort. From cricket, to jumping, table tennis, football, basketball and random activities for kids - it was completely engaging. The only letdown was the rooms. Monkey menace. These monkeys open the windows from the outside and get into the rooms. My niece was petrified, had a hard time getting him to stay quiet. The consistency of the hot cold water is also not there. Either too hot or just not hot. The weather does get unpredictable. When we arrived - it was pretty clear. It drizzled the next two days. Better to have an umbrella always! And carry your first aids, etc. The nearest shop / stores is 4 kms away. And a drop to the bus stand, about the same distance, would cost you a bomb of Rs. 300/-.
