Ooty: The Willow Hill Stay

Couple of my friends went to Yercaud a month back on almost adjacent dates and to my surprise they had very contrasting comment about their vacation. When one loved the place, the other did not enjoy the travel. The very same place, but very different opinions. When drilled into detail about various attributes of their travel, the differentiator came out to be the place where they stayed. 

I am not recommending a luxury hotel/resort/villa for the stay. But the place should make you feel comfortable. You should feel that, yes this is the place I wanted to stay. Among the various factors which affect the vacation, this is a primary one for sure.

Ani couldn't take the eyes from the beauty of the nature. Wonderful view from the room.

We had mixed feelings when we were about to near Willow Hill Hotel. We traced this one through Trip Advisor (as usual) and had a very good rating from 95% of the travelers. But there wasn't much pictures of this place and we were confused at first. But based on the rating we booked the place and at the end of the travel, the stay and the food at Willow Hill - We just loved it...

Willow Hill is very near to the Ooty town. Got this information from their website, but I never liked the hotels with its gate directly opening main road. I was expressing this wish to Ani and I realized that my wish is coming true when the approach road became narrow and lush greenery started appearing. And at the top of the hill, far away from the restlessness of the city, there emerges the beauty which we were hoping to spend our vacation in.

Loved the place in first sight. Checked in less than 5 minutes and took rest for some time, before starting the Ooty exploration.
