Where to stay in Ooty (Udhagamandalam)

An established tourism destination, Ooty and the countryside that surrounds the hill station offer plenty in the way of accommodations. Most major Indian hotel chains have opened up shop in town and lie dotted around the hilly terrain by the main roads, the more salubrious among them enjoying a little more space and better views of the surrounding area. Look at the residential areas for budget-friendly guesthouses, or head for the rural areas that encircle the town center to find a number of atmospheric rental properties built during the colonial era.
