This hotel is located in a quite neighbourhood not too far from the city. The rooms are spectacular and have a unique old world charm. The staff are very friendly and courteous.

We stayed at Sherlock for 3 nights in Oct and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had left Bangalore at 6 am and reached the place around 1 30 pm. The place is close enough to the town center yet located in a secluded location without the hustle bustle. As soon as we reached the place we got happy to see the...

Having stayed at the Little Earth groups's Destiny and Kings Cliff earlier, we decided to try out their other property in Ooty - Sherlock. It's a quaint colonial bungalow converted into a mountainside resort. Though the approach road is not good, the resort is secluded though within 2.5 km from the town center. The rooms have a heritage feel to...

On the mountain away from the hustle & bustle of the town is a hideout called Sherlock, but without Watson’s help its difficult finding it & getting there. Pros: - Fire Place, Service Standard, Kid Friendly & Hotel Theme. Cons: - Bit Over Priced, Limited Rooms & Approach Road. Ooty is a commercialized hill station & Sherlock offer a getaway...

Not worth what you pay for. Te services are not so good and you expect and good care from them for the money they charge you. Food is too costly. Room is not spacious. They provide a not good heater which is not useful.
