The resort is good, neat and decent. Could have been better room service and house keeping staff's. Food was okay okay.. Advice: the resort is located a bit away from commercial area, kindly carry daily necessary products without fail. I personally felt, for this price could have chosen a better place.. Overall experience was good...

Stayed in the premier room in their main building...And the room was awesome!!! We had heard such horror stories about sterling but I guess the better quality rooms are nice and worth the price...The room was very tastefully furnished...Wooden flooring, huge bed, great interiors and what delighted us was the sitout!! What takes the 1 star away is the bad...

This was our second stay at Fern Hills and pleased to say the standard of service and quality of food was still great. The hotel is located in the hills outside of the noise and chaos in town and nestled amongst the local villagers and farms. There are great walks around the hotel and an enjoyable walk into town across...

The location is little away from main city and thats the good thing! The rooms are well appointed and food is amazing. The buffet is prized just right and a la carte orders are served with equal care and love. The garden is beautifully laid and makes for the ideal place to take a stroll. Avoid taking adults with walking...

We stayed in Ooty Fern-hill for 3 nights very recently [10th to 13th June, 2016] and we found it extremely substandard and distasteful. Here are the key reasons - 1. I had a prior booking (payment already done) for a premium room and a classic room. When we arrived around 2:30 pm, the room was not available and the staff...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched at one of the highest points in Ooty, this resort has an amazing view of the Nilgiris. Sterling Holidays Fern Hill is set in an alluring scenic location, surrounded on all sides by the ethereal beauty of the Nilgiri Hills. The resort’s sloping roofs and terracotta tiles are reminiscent of the quaint charm of a bygone era. With a heady mix of comfort and tranquility, spending time within the resort is as attractive an option as venturing into the idyllic mountainside. ... more   less
