Ooty is one of those places which you will really like if you are spending time with your better half. Its scenic and its hell romantic. We stayed at a place called Hotel Lakeview, it was little expensive because of New year.
Be sure to leave your hotel early morning so you don't miss the sunrise and the mist in the air. Locals wearing sweaters, mufflers and drinking coffee. Most of the locals are used to tourists and hence they speak English, so language is not much of a trouble.
