Things to do
We are located within an hour’s drive from most of the major tourist attractions, hiking spots and tea estates in the Nilgiris. The most popular tourist areas, Ooty and Coonoor, boast a number of parks and gardens, a lake, several historic buildings and plenty of shopping between them.
We are also a mere 3 kms away from the Ketti railway station, a quaint little stop on the Niligiri Mountain Railway which runs from Coonoor to Ooty – via Wellington, Aravankadu, Ketti and Lovedale – and back down again.
For guests who would like quieter ambles through the Nilgiri countryside, there are also plenty of walks, hikes and vistas to enjoy. Our staff would be very happy to help organise any of these, or even a simple picnic for you, so please do ask!
Getting here and getting around
The Clive & Curzon is around 12 kms away from Ooty and Coonoor, 85 kms away from Coimbatore (the nearest airport), and 350 kms away from Bangalore.
Guests driving to Ketti should take the road down to the Ketti Railway station from Ellanalli (near Pony Industries) midway on the Ooty-Coonoor highway. After you cross the railway station, follow the road for a further 3 km. You will pass the CSI Engineering College hostels on your right and the Asia Tea factory on your left. Then, look out for a green roofed bungalow above the road to your right. That’s us!
While here, guests have the option of using public transport (buses and the Toy Train) – the bus stop is a stone’s throw away from the property. However, we do recommend that you have your own car or hire a taxi to explore the Nilgiris. Slopes can be very steep, traffic hard to negotiate for pedestrians, and trains and buses infrequent.
