Best part is the property ower Binny is very approachable and helpful. This is a very small town and not much option to eat, there are few mess when one can have south Indian meals. Car parking was at terrace and rooms are typical hill type below the road level (terrace is at road level). Hotel view is overlooking forest... More

I stayed in Misty Creek twice - once in Nov'13 and again in Feb'15. I thoroughly enjoyed the stay and hospitality here. Frank Benjamin, a very friendly and down to earth person knows every place of Valparai. I don't know any other good place to stay in Valparai better than this. For which ever type of tour you are interested... More

Some of the rooms have great view as many have mentioned. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The staff are well mannered but you may need a bit of local language knowledge to communicate better. Food is good and served hot. Benny (Frank, who runs this place) is a local naturist and quite famous in this place. He has... More

The Misty creek is located on the fringes of the Valparai town and not very easy to locate. The rooms spacious and clean. It is neither a hotel nor a homestay. It is built like a lodge and run by domestic staff. The staff have no training whatsoever in hospitality. The staff speak only Tamil and the owner of the... More

Nice place with beautiful view but corner rooms are slightly expensive .. they charge rs.1750 for corner rooms and 1500 for normal rooms.feels slightly expensive as there is nothing much to do expect for the view. You can even walk around.. the rooms charges will be okay if the breakfast is included in it.

Misty Creek is a nice accommodation option located in the Valparai town itself but away from the main road and crowded area overlooking the valley. Two of the rooms have excellent view. The rooms are specious and clean with attached clean bathrooms. Bathrooms have hot water facility. There is a person available as a care taker apart from Mr. Frank... More

We loved our stay here, and wish we could have stayed longer. We would definitely stay here again - the highlight of our holiday! The rooms are nice and clean, with a balcony overlooking the tea plantations. We could hear a Malabar Whistling Thrush, and caught sight of him a few times. The location is beautiful and very wild. We... More

Lovely place to stay in Valparai. Food is simple and delicious but best of all Frank is a wonderful and gracious host who does excellent conservation work in the area rescuing snakes and wild elephants if they are found in the local villages. We were invited to an exciting night drive to help a village with a wild elephant. Amazing.

He was helpful and took us for some game viewing. Since we had very less time we could not go for a trek with benny but in valparai if one... More

We stayed during Jan 2014 and enjoyed it. Benny was helpful in organising local travel arrangements. Rooms are clean, but rooms with french windows are not preferrable for families as the window is along the pathway and for privacy you would need to put window screens, there by taking away the purpose. Otherwise Misty creek is the best resort in... More
