We had a pleasant stay at Teanest Nightingale! It is situated amidst the tea garden. If you're lucky you can spot bisons around the tea plantations. We couldn't spot one. Staffs were very polite n helpful. Food was tasty. A big kudos to the chef.

Perfect for a relaxing stay with family. We stayed in the Woodpecker and 'Nilgiri Pipit' rooms of Teanest Nightingale Annex. The rooms are spotless, spacious and very cosy.
