    Memorable stay!

    My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Savoy run by the Taj. The service was excellent from all staff, and the food really delicious. The cool weather made our sojourn there all the more memorable, especially the time spent before the fireplace in the room.

    Everything is fine except for the fact that the hotel charges the guest the amount in indian rupees for the agreed amount, then gives a lower conversion value (example the usd to inr is $71 and the hotel’s rate is $67). Guests are unknowingly paying 5% more. There is no option on the credit card machine to change the transaction currency. It took 3 trips to the reception, meeting withe the general nanager snd 4 hrs to resolve the issue. This is a business model that these hotels are using to cheat unkowing customers.

    Excellent place

    Excellent place, very courteous and friendly team - be it Front office or F&B or Guest Services. Appears to be slightly under-staffed and hence the team appears to be over-stressed but still maintain a smiling face. Post initial hiccups and some communication issues, generally the service was fabulous led by Mr. Ansari and Mr. Paul in Front office, Sebastien in Housekeeping and Manoj, Arun, Santosh and Kalidass in F&B.

    Old world charm !

    Taj Savoy is an old British property with 19th century style lawns and rooms yet well maintained by the management and staff. Special mention of Mr Ansari and Ms Sharmila who were excellent with their guest services. Had a good time exploring Ooty with this place as our stay base.
