The Sherlock was originally an exclusive, privately-owned summer mansion during The Raj. Now, more than a century later it is a stunning, boutique hotel in extensive gardens, in this popular area for visitors to the mountainous Nilgiris district of Tamil Nadu.

There are just nine bedrooms and suites here – each one individually styled, some with open fireplaces, stunning décor and furnishings and a lovely ambience.

Destiny - the Hotel's very own farm resort and spa.

Guests at the Sherlock can go horse-riding and fishing at Destiny – the Hotel’s very own farm resort and spa. And while you are in Ooty why not visit the nearby Tea Factory and Museum, the unique Bee Museum, or the Tribal Research Centre and Museum.

Two dining rooms.

There are two dining rooms at the Sherlock. The Adler Dining Room is named after Irene Adler, the notable lady that Mr. Holmes once acknowledged as being 'the perfect woman' and serves traditional, local cuisine. There’s also the Sunroom and the lawns, perfect for breakfast and afternoon tea.
