“We had a pleasant stay, spacious rooms and courteous staff. Breakfast spread had both south indian options and stuffed parathas. Cereals bread and some cookies. Hotel staff made arrangements for our vehicles when we wanted to get around and also for railway station drop. I highly recommend this pla“ ce
“Yantra Leisures is absolutely worth the money you pay. The ambience is too good, the hotel is very close to the city, the food is decent, families would love it. You just need to choose the best time to go here. It was 10 degrees when I was there.Altogether, a budget stay for a 1-2 days trip to Ooty“ .

“Initially we were supposed to stay in a different hotel but due to some issues with treebo we were transferred here. And trust me we couldn't be happier. It was better then we expected. Beautiful hotel, good food.. Amazing location.. We infact got a room with our own little fireplace and a“ beautiful view. The staff were soo courteous and warm. We were literally feeling bad leaving this place. Checked out hoping to return soon. ..thank you ❤
