Good location but poorly maintained.some rooms are decent but some are really bad. The location is very near to to Ponmudi peeak. Ponmudi peak can be a one day trip from trivandrum but doesnt worth a stay. The tea stall near the Ponmudi peak is good.

It was explained that the hill station closed at 6pm and there was absolutely nowhere to stay. We started walking down and wonderfully came... More

It has a lengthy admission procedure. But we could accept it as our extra toil to this great escape. Unfailing Munnar is going to sooth you, more... More

The staff were friendly, the garden quite pretty and the views lovely, but we would never have stayed in this hotel if there had been any other option. We don't mind basic, but we do mind dirty. The walls and ceilings of our " chalet" rooms were mouldy. The bedding stank of mould. The pillows were filthy. The rooms smelt... More

This hill station lodging, the only around, is a basic government style accommodation atop the Ponmudi mountains, a few hours drive from Trivandrum and the popular small beach/cliff town of Varkala. To focus on the positive first, the setting, high atop these "hills" (green mountains) in the cloud layer of mist, fog and rain, was stunning. It was peaceful, quiet,... More
