This hotel is pretty nice. It has beautiful surroundings and is a pleasant place to get away from it all. Staff are friendly and courteous and rooms are clean. We originally had a room without a front view but the hotel changed our room to a prime view when a room became available without us having to ask. Food is... More

Oh dear, how can a hotel in such a superb location, feel so unloved, bleak and in need of a serious makeover? Initial contact at reception was unwelcoming, demanding money before we even saw the room. Took second room offered (first smelt). Clean, spacious room, no hot water. Why do they provide one towel, half a toilet roll and one... More

The road to KTDC Golden Peak means magnificent views itself. The cottages are spacious and well kept, staff/management friendly. Food is average, and very spicy (even the omelette has green chillies in it). Make sure you plan your visit to the peak between 8am-5:30pm, these are the opening hours and we've seen cars being sent away after 5.30 pm (the... More

22 hairpin bends to get there ! Views magnificent if you get there in day light, but avoid over-nighting as the accommodation is poor, the food worse and theres no beer or wine..This place cries out for a professional outfit to take it over from KTDC and run it properly

The resort is around 5 kms from topmost point of Ponmudi Peak and climate is really awesome in the evenings from November - February. Very neat rooms and approachable staff and 24/7 security. best option for honeymooners as privacy and safety guaranteed. Dinner has to be order before 7 pm as per the menu provided in the room. All rooms... More

This is the best hotel in Ponmudi, its location is really awesome. Visited during June so we enjoyed the rain and heavy fog, if you don't like it avoid visiting during rainy season. Rooms rates will charge additional on Saturdays and Sundays even if you book it online. Nice location, good food, friendly staff.

The only hotel in Ponmudi is run by KTDC. The location is fabulous. We visited just before the monsoons started. The climate was very cool with swirling mists all around. In fact the climate and scenery was better than Munnar, which is the most visited hill station in Kerala.We had to reschedule the booking as my daughter fell ill during... More
