Our stay at sherlock was great. Lovely property cradled in nature with cozy quaint rooms with fireplaces to keep you warm at night. The perfect place to relax!! Though the continental chef was unavailable during our stay, we did enjoy all the other food they served. Be careful of the drive upto sherlock since the roads are not in very...

The drive from Mysore to Ooty was serene as you move through the forest and climb the hairpin bends to reach the foggy and misty Ooty... Just as we were getting into the chilled misty ooty, we realized that we made a poor choice of stay.. Last minute booking leading to displeased experience. At first the room provided was not...

I stayed at Sherlock for 2 nights with a group of 6 people. It was a very pleasant experience, rooms are very spacious and well equipped and staff was friendly. I liked the vintage furniture which was present all over the cottage and also the view from the place is great. Few suggestions / gaps which I want to point...

We stayed two nights at Sherlock, and were almost the only guests there! Situated in a beautiful location, lovely views and a lovely old colonial hotel. We took a package which included a walk to and entry into the tea factory and and an early morning walk to the local dam, which was beautiful. Food was good, though pricier than...

My wife had researched this hotel up and suggested this place to be our refuge away from the heat and dust of Chennai. The hotel takes one back to the days of the British Raj as they say, the moment one lays foot on the property. But there was more to that, this being a Sherlock Holmes themed hotel, the...

I had been to Sherlock on 01-May-2015 for 2 days & I have to say it is one of the best place to relax in Ooty. It has scenic at its best around it & food was excellent. Thanks for the cherishing memories for the whole sherlock staff.
