"The Proverbial Nilgiris Getaway If you're looking for a quiet getaway in the Nilgiris, you should definitely consider De Rock. Location It is about 20 minutes from Coonoor by car, secluded enough from the bustle and din of tourist traffic, while being accessible enough for any excursions that you might take to nearby tourist spots. It is about an hour's drive to Kotagiri and a bit more to Ooty. Coonoor's famous SIMS park is barely 10 minutes away by car or bike. The property It is not first class. But for the money you spend, you get spacious, quiet and comfortable rooms with clean bathrooms, running hot water 24/7, WiFi, and all the creature comforts one might get at home. Even during peak summer when we went, there was a gentle breeze if you were in the shade. Since the property overlooks a hill slope tea garden, there is a very nice view out of the window. If you like to read or chat outdoors, there is a nice lawn with shaded seating. The host Charles Nathan is a local, and therefore possesses excellent knowledge of the area. We took his suggestions for places to visit and both the drive and the spot turned out to be very relaxing and enjoyable. Charles is passionate about maintaining the Nilgiris pristine environs and is therefore part of environmental groups and spearheads several efforts to keep the region litter-free. If you're into it, you can spend hours talking about the Nilgiris and its many uniquenesses with him. Food The friendly kitchen staff and chef take pains to understand what you like and give you food that is appetising and wholesome. No complaints whatsoever. The staff speak English, Hindi, Tamil and a smattering of Malayalam and Kannada so language is not a barrier either."
