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.

can't go Munnar? No problem. Go to Ponmudi, hill station nearest to Trivandum. after spend inf good time in an obscure hotel in Kovalam. We went to KTDC Golden PeakFor a pleasant stay. 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
