The approach to Sherlock can be a little tricky, but once atop, its all beauty. With a lovely garden, and rooms that open into the garden, the property is perched at the edge of the hill. Beware though, there is a separate building constructed recently - which isn't the heritage property as well..so be sure of what you are booking...

This is a very good hotel themed on our favorite Sherlock Holmes. They have displayed pictures of most prominent actors who have played this character. Food is very average and wouldn't suggest to dine here. The manager and other staff (Mr. Sanjay and Ms. Shabnam) are really warm and nice. Good place for a one night stay as view is...

We had just come from a delightfully peaceful stay near Coonoor, and were looking forward to the garden, views, and peace at Sherlock. It was not to be. Granted, it is high season, and every room appeared to be full. But the walls between rooms in the garden area are paper thin, and the children next door were rambunctious and...

Stayed in this hotel in April 2017. Location of the hotel is good. As its on tiger hill, view from the hotel is breath taking. Food and ambiance was very good. Special mention for Sanjay who guided and helped us throughout our stay in Ooty.

Stay at Sherlock was a unique experience. From the Sherlock themed room names to the photos and snippets were wonderful. Situated on top of a hill away from the hustle bustle of the town, it offers a beautiful view of the hills. I would like call out the courteous staff who were very kind and we loved the quiet dinners...
