If you are looking for the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of the corporate world or are simply due a perfectly restoring holiday then Royston is the one.

Located 70 kms from Coimbatore, the journey to Royston is an adventure in itself. We warmly welcome visitors from near and far - our pleasure is hosting.

The space

Royston is a gorgeous old Colonial residence which once served as home to Colonel Rowcroft. Colonel Rowcroft was a British Army officer who served in India during the time of the First World War.

As such Royston is abundant with history. The walls are clad with wartime memorabilia including old photos and hangings from the past 100 years.

The main house comprises of 3 fabulous bedrooms (all with televisions) and the adjoining cottage has one bedroom. The main house sleeps 6 comfortably and it is suitable for all ages. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms which are large and well equipped, there is also a powder room. The cottage comes equipped with 2 bathrooms.

The living room is where everyone comes together, with the warm fireplace and oversized couches - there isn't a more comfortable place on earth. The technology is up-to-date with cable TV and music system. The dining room comfortably seats 8 and comes fully equipped with multi-course crockery and cutlery.

Upstairs plays host to a very relaxing space furnished with an old oak desk and library bookshelves. Reading chairs complete this perfect space.

Royston is the perfect place to unwind and relax. It's a little away from the main road but that is what makes it the best. We could only squeeze in two nights for our trip but will definitely come back again for a longer stay. Royston feels like home! It's cozy and every corner of the house is picture worthy. It's well maintained and very clean. The caretaker Satish was always there to help us with whatever was our need. He cooked amazing homely food for us as per our needs. The surroundings are quiet and beautiful. Everything needed is within easy reach. We did not want to leave at the end of our stay. We would love to come back over and over to Royston. For anyone wanting a quiet and relaxing break, Royston is the perfect home!

Very nice place for family and kids. Beautiful house with awesome interiors. Its a old British style interiors and very spacious Bunglow.. You get a feel of your home. Satish care taker was really helpful and cooked delicious food for us(chargeable). Only the hot water was a little concern considering the weather.. I would strongly recommend this place as it is located outskirt of Ooty and can avoid the hustle bustle of the town.

This is a wonderfully located house - within ten minutes of restaurants and shops and yet in a quiet, residential area. The views are nice, the house is spacious, with sit-outs, large windows and nooks. The kitchen is supplied with everything you'd need to make yourself meals, as long as you supply/organize your own groceries. We enjoyed our stay at Royston - thank you very much.
