We stayed here in March after our trip on the toy train and what a lovely place. This hotel is set away from the town in lovely grounds.The room along with the whole hotel is full of character and was my husbands favourite during our India trip. There is a fireplace in the room and you get a hot water...

Sherelock is on the tiger hills, to find that hotel is difficult for first time. Tar toad till hotel is okay but from the hotel main entrance gate adventure starts, you should be a good driver. Hotel don't have dormitory for drivers and drivers have to go to town for night stay. I suggest they should have some place for...

Pros: Really liked the location of the hotel. The staff are accommodating and friendly and they agreed for an early check in and late checkout. Cons: Food seemed little pricey. Though the hotel has a good view since it is located on top of a small hill, unless you have a vehicle its difficult to commute.

Things didn't start well with being offered a room we hadn't booked, so that we spent one night in a dark, dingy, damp standard room. This was not the fault of the manager, Shiva, but their external booking system. Shiva did all he could, as did all the staff, to make up for this, and were very attentive and solicitous...

Had a great experience there. Go for the cottage rooms which have a small sit-out area. Don't go for the rooms which open out in dinning area. The only issue we faced was the cold(freezing). The no of heaters were limited and we had to do with the heat from the fireplace. Ask for the heater in advance. The hotel...

This hotel is having well furnished rooms, they serve good food, good hospitality and is having a very good view of the valley which makes this property different. It's having cottages and rooms in the main building as well.

Excellent food, breath-taking scenery and extremely courteous staff! Sherlock in the Nilgiris is a retreat that promises utmost relaxation in the lap of mother nature. We had a great 'downtime' unwinding in this small and cozy resort that is modeled on the theme of Sherlock Holmes. You would find portraits and caricatures hung on the walls depicting adventures of Sherlock...

I went to Ooty with a friend during the month of February and made a booking for this hotel about a week before I made the trip. Through TripAdvisor, I saw that this property was a perfect example of a hill top scenic place. A kind of place that is ideal for Ooty. I was not at all disappointed when...

Very much enjoyed our stay at Sherlock. Great views, cozy homestay feeling, good service and food. A bit out of the way of the town but therefore quiet and relaxing. Drinking Gin&Tonics (bring your own!) in the living room and falling asleep by the fireplace - very unique experience.
