We arrived here after a seven hour drive to a total disaster. Our so called superior suite turned out to be a room at a youth hostel. The room had a damp smell, cracked walls, peeling paint, damaged units and just a workable shower. Asked for an iron and ironing board and the porter brought up an iron, when I... More

It's a difficult hotel to review as at times I was thinking maybe a four or a three would do it justice but the negatives have won the day for me. Perched on the side of the mountain it has commanding views which stretch for as far as the eye can see. I counted at least 20 seperate hill ridges... More

We just spent two nights at the Mountain Trail hotel and while the staff were very nice and the food nice I wouldn't recommend staying so far out of Munnar. Our room was spacious with a living room, bedroom and bathroom but the decor was shabby and the whole place needed a paint job. Our bed was very comfortable and... More

We stayed at this resort for 2 nights and found it to be too far from the town. There is an unmade narrow road that leads to this resort. The rooms are clean and basic. No safe is kept in the rooms. The lounge has sofa set with tv with a few channels only. Carrom board and a football game... More

This resort is on the top of the mountain. We stayed there for 2 nights in October, luckily for us didn't really rain but the weather was misty and a bit cold, was not able to see anything around. Sad, because otherwise the view would be something to remember but still we enjoyed it. When you are living in the... More

Nice View..Nice rooms...Good Food...Very friendly & supportive Management...We stayed for 2 nights...Overall a very good experience. ELDERLY people & those having knee problem watch out & be cautious...As there are many stairs..No lift...!! Restaurant is upstairs, so need to climb through the stairs to come to restaurant. Otherwise, all fine...Nice place to visit.

I and my family spent this Diwali in Munnar. The scenery from the hotel is awesome. There are a lot of indoor games in the rooms. Rooms are pretty spacious. They gave us a box of sweets on Diwali and also lighted up the place with small decorative lights. On the minus point it is far from Munnar town around... More
