Despite several years of travelling in India, with the same very knowledgeable driver, this was a new one on us - a combination of Cardamom House website and Google maps brought us to our destination. Our welcome was warm but we were allowed time to find our bearings, something much appreciated after hours on the road with few opportunities for... More

Chris and his team make Carmamom House a wonderful place to stay! Very peaceful and splendid food and unobtrusive service. The new pool makes the stay even better. Beautiful butterflies and birds! The trip to the village organised by the staff is most interesting. Well worth going out of your way to stay there.

Cardamom House came following a 3 week journey through Tamil Nadu. It was our intention to use our five night stay to unwind and relax before returning home. This goal was exceeded. As soon as we arrived it was clear that this was a special place. The situation looking over beautiful gardens to the lake and the hills is superb.... More

Dr Chris and his team treated us like personal guests and we had a fabulous experience here. It was by far the best of the seven overnight stays we had during our two weeks tour of Kerala. We did not have time to explore the nearby Nature Trail but we did walk alongside the lake where we encountered a few... More

Just had our 2nd visit to this wonderful place. The owner and staff all go out of their way to make you feel like the most treasured guest/friend/relative. Rooms are a good size, comfortable beds, plenty of hot water, your personal library. The food . . . where else do you get home-made bread? apart from all the other tasty... More

Cardamon House is a popular small property beside a lake nestling up to the Western Ghats. It is one of those small hotel/home-stays that inspires great loyalty and repeat business. The staff are personable and welcoming. They are experienced and have excellent English. Their friendly interaction with guests is appropriate and warm. We were often asked if we were comfortable...

After biking in Tamil Nadu, Cardamom House felt like arriving to heaven. The rooms are beautiful, the food delicious (especially the chicken cooked in the Tandoor oven) and the service excellent. Lounging by the pool and reading in a quiet corner felt heavenly. It is off the beaten path and well worth the trip.

During a 3 week trip across South India we spent 2 nights here. A beautiful setting,very friendly and helpful staff,good food and a respite from the madness of Madurai and other cities. We had a suite above the recently constructed pool and i would try to book this again if i revisited Cardamom House. Beautiful birds and butterflies in garden.... More

This was one of our favourite places. We were in India for a month and we stayed in a range of accommodations, and Cardamon House was one of our favourites. It offered us so much.

TV IN COMMUNAL AREA ; CHILDREN WELCOME!!The staff have been working together as a team for some 16 years - and several of them (having visited the U.K) speak English. We are proud of our cuisine which encompasses a wide range of culinary styles (Indian, Continental, Thai, Chinese - and we often 'invent' recipes ourselves! Food is of the highest quality and we purchase only the freshest of fresh vegetables sometimes twice a day - to ensure the 'pick of the crop'.BIRD LIFE AND WILDLIFE? There is an abundance of Birdlfe including peacocks and many others. Leopard, black panther, lynx, jungle cat, bison, sambar,barking and mouse deer have also been spotted from time to time.
