I booked for quadruple room (4 Bedded room)through phone booking and after reaching there they gave me 2 keys of 2 double bedded rooms and saying only that is available. Hopeless hotel, not clean and untidy. Don't even try to stay here in this hotel.

Ooty seems to top the bucketlist of every backpacer and hence it tops ours as well. Rainbow cottages are the most affordable and offer a semi luxurious stay between the lush green mountains. The staff is so friendly and helpful that they even listen to u even at 3 in the night. Highly advisable!!
