We arrived late and in the dark having broken down en-route and were very happy to have been upgraded to a larger room (I think because we had broken down). They had also offered to come and pick us up if we wanted following our breakdown some 40 km away. Dinner was OK but a bit bland. Having discussed this... More

We arrived in the dark, having been delayed for 3 hours due to a strike by Keralan border staff so it was only the next morning that we realised just how stunning the location was. We had a very comfortable chalet with large bed, sitting area and good shower room. There was no choice for the evening meals but they... More

Wonderful location on top of a hill in the Western Ghats surrounded by tea plantations. I have come to expect excellent service from hotel staff in India and the far east but here is exceptional. All the staff are the most friendly, helpful people you could ever wish to meet. Nothing is too much trouble for them at all. The... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a package tour. Located in the hills set amongst tea and cardomon plantations the accomodation is in the form of individual blocks of 4 rooms. Not modern but quaint in style. Nothing nearby where to buy anything. There is no drinks licence so youll need to take in beer wine etc.... More

We really enjoyed our two day visit here and would have liked to stay longer. The setting is beautiful and the staff are very helpful. The atmosphere is very calming and relaxing and the food is excellent (but with limited choice). If there was to be any criticism of this wonderful place with its breathtaking views, it would be that... More

A comfortable bungalow was to be our home for the next day & it consisted of a large bedroom/sitting room, good bathroom & a verandah with a lovely view overlooking the valley. The staff were efficient, very friendly & the food was extremely tasty, however alcohol is... More

We spent 2 nights here in February. The staff were marvelous - very welcoming. We arrived on the evening that they hold a pre dinner BBQ. It was dark and we were met and led with torches to the BBQ area and served a non-alcoholic drink and BBQ chicken. We met and chatted to other travelers and enjoyed a relaxing... More

What a fantastic place to stay 3 nights. From the time of arrival until departure we felt at home. We stayed in a well appointed cottage with a super verandah with a breathtaking view. The ambience is calm relaxing and friendly. All of the staff seem to be involved in creating this atmosphere. The food was varied, well presented and... More

The views from his hotel are fantastic and the welcome we received on arrival was excellent. The estate has added additional cottages and we stayed in a plantation villa which was extremely spacious and had a balcony overlooking the surrounding hills. They offer a walk with a guide around the planation which is worth taking and a lookout point for... More
