I India Hotel
273, Grand Duff Road, Valley view, Ooty, Nilgiris, Next to Saga Resort, Near Valley View, .
Heritage: Extracts of a 1920s journal describes the building as an unlikely combination of southern England and Australian stone cottage with pitched roof surrounded by trees, fenced flower gardens, scattered along a leafy winding lane and tall eucalyptus stands covering the otherwise barren hill top. Today it is a heritage building restored to balance contemporary living without ruining its 1917 vintage architecture. Just 3 kilometers from Ooty and barely 2 1/2 hours from the airport I-India sits in the rim of the panoramic valley offering grand views of the UNESCO World Heritage Nilgiri Mountain Railways chugging through valley; disappearing and emerging from mysterious tunnels from time to time.
