Kings Cliff Hotel Ooty 2,3 March 2018 We stayed here on the recommendation of friends who had come a month earlier. It was altogether an unforgettable experience from the imposing traditional public rooms and well-kept garden to the lofty bedrooms with fires in the cold evening and hot water bottles to warm the beds! No problems for Europeans with mosquitoes here! On our visit the days were like a hot English summer and ideal for sitting in the garden, looking down over the town while being entertained by the monkeys climbing everywhere (open windows need to be closely guarded to keep them out of the room!) The evenings were decidedly cool, so dinner in one of several wood panelled dining rooms needed warm clothing and a roaring fire. The menu was extensive, with both Indian and western items tasty and imaginatively executed, and service mostly good. The restaurant is obviously popular with local people since most diners were obvious walk-ins and not guests. Unfortunately, like so many Indian hotels, no alcoholic drinks were available but Girish (the ever-helpful front of house manager) was able to direct us towards the local beer and wine store where we could stock up! Breakfast was served in a greenhouse in the garden (coldish in early morning, so sit in the sun) and was rather disappointing. After our dinner the previous evening, I was expecting better than the limited buffet with eggs to order which two over-pressed waiters insisted on serving rather than letting us get on with it. Getting English style black tea with cold milk proved tedious since there were no teapots and hot water had to be fetched from the kitchen for each cup. Sadly also, the omelettes proved underwhelming and the toast needed returning several times before being properly browned. The good: wonderful ambience, lovely gardens and old fashioned style with generally good service and excellent restaurant. Especially worthy of mention were our host Girish and night guard/porter/fire setter and tender/hot water bottle supplier Shekar. We had the garden rooms (on recommendation) and they were by far the best. The not so good: theres a huge backlog of basic maintenance (or maybe just the usual ignore it till it falls apart so common in India). Its a shame with a building like this not to look after it. I noticed particularly parts of the roof open to the elements, the windows and doors not fitting, fasteners broken and catches that didnt. Our bathroom vanity unit had a leak in the cupboard (obviously long neglected) which was rotting the timber and causing a damp mildew smell when the cupboard was opened. Breakfast was a decided disappointment as detailed above. Verdict: an unrivalled setting and a unique experience; Id certainly come again in spite of the negatives.

We live in Ooty so can say with some confidence that the coffee hut in the garden is the nicest spot in Ooty for a quiet coffee and perhaps lunch. Also the restaurant is a favourite of ours for a romantic dinner for two

Colonial bungalow converted into hotel; front has a nice garden from where we can view distant grey sky enmeshed with white clouds. Hot water kettle, old fireplace with logs as well as electric heater, not to mention hot water bags, can take care of cold days and nights. Rooms are spacious with high tiled ceiling. My take away is the morning light that breaks into the room thru the glass embedded in the ceiling.

For many years whenever possible we use heritage hotels in India and Sri Lanka. The King's Cliff is the worst accommodation we have ever experienced in our extensive travels of India. On arrival we were shown to our standard room which we had booked. As soon as the door was opened there was an overwhelming stench of sewage combined with the musty smell of an unventilated room. When we opened the curtains of the only window in the room it had been bricked up from outside. We were told this had been done to keep the monkeys out. We immediately went back to reception and said the room was totally unacceptable and we would check out immediately. After a lot of toing and froing they decided to upgrade us to a deluxe room which we found acceptable. On the first evening there were very few non-residential guests in the restaurant and our evening meal was very nice. The second evening the restaurant was very busy and the Chicken Biryani has left me with severe food poisoning. I had ordered the Chicken Biryani and was told that it would take 20 minutes to prepare which was fine by us. When it arrived the pastry covering did not look fully cooked. When I took the pastry seal off and tried a mouthful the rice was luke warm and when I ate some chicken it was hard on the outside and very soft on the inside and cold. Upon investigation of the chicken it was soft on the inside because because it was cold and raw. The chef and waiters offered me another biryani and told me it would only take 5 minutes. This made me very suspicious as the other one had taken 20 minutes. I told them I didn't want to make a fuss, I didn't want to eat anything and I asked them to leave us in peace and let my wife finish her meal. They insisted on me having another biryani and 5 minutes later they appeared with a bowl of rice and chicken which looked totally unappetizing and basically disgusting. They created a scene which was very embarrassing insisting that I ate something. With the escalating situation my wife didn't enjoy her meal and left half of it. We retired to the sitting area which is one of the few places where you can get Wi-Fi. After some minutes the manager and chef appeared once again and insisted that I had something to eat and I politely asked them to leave us alone so that we could do urgent business online. We went to our room and had some of our own biscuits and water. This was the end of our planned romantic dinner in Ooty. Now to address the issue of the room. It gets very cold in Ooty in the evening and only warms up again in the morning. Being a heritage hotel the room had wooden floors and slate tiles in the bathroom which become very cold when the sun goes down. There are no slippers provided in the room and as a consequence my wife has developed a bad cold over our stay in King's Cliff. On check-out we informed reception about the lack of slippers in the room. They told us they had slippers and it was our fault for not asking for them. The only person to show any sympathy and understanding for our situation was Girish, who was the man who lit the fire in our room, gave us hot water bottles and brought us a cup of tea and some fresh fruit to our room on the last morning. He could see that we were both ill. We arrived at King's Cliff happy, healthy and positive and left unhappy, unhealthy and negative. Truly a place to be avoided at all cost.
