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

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

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.
