I was not so sure to opt this place for my weekend because of the usual issues we face with the service and maintenance of a government owned place. Also, I have heard and read reviews which are not very positive. But since I was left with no other options if to stay in Ponmudi, option for KTDC Golden Peak.... More

This is the only facility at Ponmudi for an overnight stay other than the PWD guest house. The KTDC property is of course overpriced and the accomodation is only average. The rooms dont have a view from inside but if u step out of the room and walk a few paces stunning views awaits you. The furniture is old and... More

Golden peak is the only option if you r staying in ponmudi. The rooms are average. Room service is good. The restaurant is also average. The peak is very beautiful and quiet. Best to visit in the evenings. The cottages are beautifully constructed with beautiful lawns and small trees which makes the place a lovely one. No wifi or network... More

Good place for people who love loneliness , no artificial entertainments etc. young couples , people with adventure attitude will be able to find good time . For kids may not be a choice . For adventure you should visit the view point first in the morning during peak season , lot of people enter into view point but miss... More

As usual of all other KTDC hotel, this hotel in ponmudi ias ideally located in an iconic place. However the rooms are in pathetic condition. Stains in bed, dirty floor, smelly room. This is the only one hotel in Ponmudi, considering this, if you order food it will take minimum 1 hour to reach. the waiter told us that the... More

Whenever you talk about hill stations in Kerala, the first place that comes to your mind is Munnar. However, if you are looking to spend a weekend in a quiet, less crowded hill station, you should definitely visit Ponmudi Hill Station. KTDC Golden Peak is the place to stay if you are visiting this hill station. It has very nice... More

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.

After many days travelling and thinking that there was always somewhere to stay in India we ventured to Ponmudi hill station. the local bus took us to the top for sunset and the views were fantastic. 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
