There is really nothing to fault here. The rooms are great, the views over the lake wonderful and the staff are excellent. Nice food too. It's an ideal place to relax. They couldn't make you more welcome

If you are looking for a five star hotel, this is not your place but if you are looking for a bit of heaven, this is it!! From the moment we arrived until we checked out two days later, we were spoiled and so well looked after by Chris and his staff. I really hate to call it "the staff"... More

After a long journey of three flights and a car journey finally arriving at beautiful Cardamom House, we were met with the warmest of welcomes and an immediate sense of belonging - my first visit to India couldn't have started from a better place! The romantic setting with the Western Ghats behind you, the glimpses of the lake ahead, a... More

Great homestay with Chris and the team, good rooms with efficient aircon and the best food all trip, we'd been pining for bread and the homebaked toast and homemade marmalade just hit the spot at breakfast. Lunch and dinner perfectly cooked Tamil cuisine spiced to our taste. Spectacular countryside and we even had our own house dog for the trip... More

Fabulous views over lakes and mountains, charming staff and host, lovely swimming pool , and total relaxation with excellent food. We really enjoyed our 2 night stay. We stayed in the suite which I would recommend for its higher position commanding the best views.

I stayed at Cardamom House with my 17-year-old cousin and grandmother in August. Since she discovered it about ten years ago, my grandmother has returned on almost a yearly basis, and describes the home stay as her ‘paradise.’ Although everything that I had heard about Cardamom House was positive, my expectations were exceeded when I visited for myself, and my...

I stayed here for three weeks and could have stayed for much longer. The lovely staff made me feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. The location is just beautiful and the facilities are great, I was in that gorgeous pool at every opportunity. As a creative and nature loving person, I was inspired: the flora... More

This is our second visit to Cardamom House and we plan to come again next year. We love the friendly inclusive atmosphere and the peaceful location of the homestay by the lake, nestled below the hills. The owner and staff offer the very best experience of this area. You can swim in the beautiful clean pool, watch the many birds... More

It´s admittedly a bit off the usual travellers routes. But if you happen to be near (there is a train station in Dindigul) Cardamom House is an excellent place for a few days recovery of the hardships of travel in India. Food is brilliant and varied, reception very friendly, rooms large and comfortable, swimming pool crystal clear, everything atmospheric and... More

I had a wonderful 2 night stay at Cardomom House in August. Having come for a work trip to Trichy, I wanted to find a quiet retreat for the weekend instead of staying in the bustling city. Cardamom exceeded all my expectations. Nestled in the foothills of the Western Ghats, it is a beautiful rustic property, with breathtaking views of... More
