A lovely place, full of character and charm, a peaceful sanctuary set in beautiful plantation and forest landscape. (Actually there is currently some construction work going on nearby so there was a bit of banging noise in the daytime but presumably it's a temporary state of affairs and fortunately there was no heavy machinery). Guided walk through the cardamon planation... More

Unfortunately our schedule only allowed us one night at the Windermere, but we’ve already pencilled it in for our next visit. After been shown to Cardamom a, one of the garden rooms, we immediately liked what we found. A very comfortable, uniquely furnished double, with plenty of storage space, a safe that worked and a large shower room – OK,... More

The Windermere is situated in a really beautiful spot, with great views over the plantations. The rooms are large and comfortable, not overly luxurious but more simply decorated in a homestay fashion. The plantation estate walk was interesting and gave us a chance to see some of the crops that grow around the estate. This isn't the place for people... More

We have just stayed here for two nights. It is a lovely, peaceful place to relax and the experience is enhanced by impeccable service and lovely food. Our room was just fine and fulfilled our expectations. There was plenty of hot water provided we remembered to turn the heater on. We went for the afternoon walk around the cardamom plantation...

We stayed for 2 nights at this retreat/hotel and the scenery on the way and at the location was stunning. The Windermere Estate is quite remote and once there, unless you have transport, you are totally reliant on the amenities at the location. We arrived early afternoon and were able to get a sandwich lunch, which was perfectly adequate and... More

Stunning views and delightful staff but this hotel is really very basic and that is probably generous. Really nothing to do locally, room furniture pretty utilitarian, limited hot water, no alcohol, poor choice at breakfast, lunch is either same curry as dinner or toasted sandwiches, dinner is set menu. It wouldn't take a huge amount of thought or investment to... More

This is a rustic wilderness retreat near Munnar on the Western Ghats that is also a cardamom and coffee plantation. We had a charming room in the cottage building for 2 nights. It had a balcony big enough to sit on with nice views of the plantation. We were given a tour of the plantation shortly after arriving, followed by... More

We had a half day and night at the Windermere and enjoyed the walk through the plantation, the BBQ entrees and the large room. It was what we were looking for but none of the party was overwhelmed by the experienced.

We had a brilliant time at Windermere shortly after Christmas 2014. Johnson and his staff are utterly engaging, always smiling and willing to help with everything from lighting your way through the darkness to local activities. The food is first class, with tea and coffee available all day; the rooms are light and spacious and the views stunning. This is... More

We were a party of 4 adults, 4 children--lucky enough to be at Windermere for the Christmas Eve celebrations. There was a wonderful spirit that night--music, fireworks, food and great hospitality. I was very sorry we had to leave after only 2 nights and am keen to return. The area is simply beautiful and there are great hikes and walks... More
