Relaxing place to take a walk with your loved one in the beauty of nature. So all couples can undoubtedly book for the place...

In a two week tour of South India, staying at Lymond House was without doubt our favourite place. Our room was amazing and atmospheric comprising a massive suite furnished with quirky but very comfortable period furniture. Our bed was enormous and welcoming while the bathroom was equally huge. Lymond House itself is a charming colonial bungalow crammed with a vintage...

Lymond House was delightful! We stayed in one of the newer suites in behind the house. It was spacious and comfortable. The lawn and gardens are beautiful and provide a serene spot amongst the busyness and noise of Ooty - it's hard to believe we were in the city area. All the staff were very kind and helpful; we loved...

Room Reservation - (Not Good) We blocked our holiday via Hotel.com for another location but as that was sold out and the owner of Lymond house was the same so she offered us this location. I am giving one star less in review only because of messy online booking system, they may cancel your booking on last moment. so please...

It was one of the best meals we have had on our 40 day trip of India. The price was very affordable. Our room was very comfortable and the Wifi was available in the...

We are so pleased we chose Lymond House for our 2-night stay. Situated in a delightful garden in a quiet street, this was the perfect place to soak up the ambiance of times past. The bungalow has been sympathetically maintained in the style of its time with lots of antiques and memorabilia. The current owner's grandfather was an associate of...

The 2 acre grounds of Lymond House is magnificent and the rooms are decent as well. We occupied Flora for 2 days, and we were quite satisfied with the rooms. However, the management was a little lacking in proper courtesy. The Manager there, Jagadish, did not inform us about the amenities that we had paid to avail. For example, he...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dating back to 1855, Lymond House is the epitome of a bygone colonial era, the perfect getaway, set among a vista of flowering trees and sprawling lawns. This heritage hotel comprises two Victorian drawing rooms with fireplaces, ideal for cosy evenings in. It has three ensuite double rooms and three garden suites, replete with antique beds, dressers, creaking floorboards and fireplaces. One can soak in the atmosphere that has been lovingly preserved for over 150 years. Sitting in the Victorian drawing room, keeping warm by the fire, one can easily imagine the then lady of the house, Mrs Dason, at the piano in her crinoline evening gown, playing the haunting melodies of those far from home. Tariffs - starting at Rs 3999 + tax for a couple inclusive of breakfast . ... more   less
