We are a couple who are travelling on a budget, however fancied a splurge for my birthday after reading about this place in the lonely planet. Totally blown away by one of the best views we have ever seen on the doorstep to our spotless room. The pool has crystal blue water, and best of all the atmosphere is so... More

This is home stay come mini hotel - with a very special team of really friendly and interested staff. No frills accommodation but comfortable beds and all facilities. The atmosphere is that of a large family with other guests meeting each evening for a communal three course tasty and varied supper. Lovely pool, gorgeous views, bird life, walks and local... More

We enjoyed a relaxing 4 nights at Cardamom House. Our visit to Athoor village was a highlight - with the locals very welcoming- an elderly man inviting my wife to take his chair in the shade to watch a wedding ceremony, being served coffee theatrically by a Freddie Mercury look alike. Pleasant walks down to the lake. But undoubtedly THE... More

Many thanks for that really nice review. It was indeed enjoyable to be able to sit on the veranda and compare experiences after we found that we had both attended Cambridge University - and also lived in Brussels for considerable periods of time. I have never thought of us as being an "English House Party" for normally we have a... More

We stayed here for a week on the first stopover of a 6 week trip to Tamil Nadu and Kerala. It was the ideal place to acclimatise and be introduced to rural South Indian life as well. The staff here are just full of goodwill, and know exactly how to make you feel pampered. Rooms are in small stone cottages... More

Our stay at Cardamom House was absolutely blissful, you really have to see this place to appreciate the full glory of the fabulous surroundings. It is the perfect place to while away a few days and really spend some time chilling out. The staff here are so wonderful and fun to hang out with, they really will spoil you rotten.... More

We had a wonderful opportunity to spend our weekend break here. This is meant for people who just wanna keep off their routine, with no major agenda. Located on the banks of the Kamarajar Lake near Aathoor village, this is a convenient location offering family homestay with nature's lure. Access to this place from the main highway passes through lush... More

We left Cardamon House today after two wonderful nights. One week into our tour we'd begun to tire of towns and temples. Nestled on the side of the hills and overlooking a beautiful flat valley with a lake and village nearby and rice fields in the distance, this is a wonderful place to chill. The locals that run the home... More

If only we had had another couple of nights here. So relaxing and quiet with lovely views and a good clean pool. The 6 local staff were so friendly and willing to share their local kowledge with us. The dog walked us around the lake and then, after all the other guests had gone, slept outside our room for the... More

What a find! Completely different to anywhere else we stayed in India, it's was a really special, relaxing place in the middle of the countryside with lake and mountain views. It's run by Chris, a retired Brit and his lovely, efficient team of locals (plus some friends and a nice dog who took us on walks!). Particular highlights were the... More

This is a picturesque valley and the property has a nice view of one end of the lake. Room was a little small, but nice and clean Nice swimming pool. Dinner was good, but lunch disappointing. (We took one dinner at another property in the valley, which we preferred) Service was OK. The staff were nice and friendly, but seemed... More
