The Windermere Estate is a property nestled between Tea, coffee and cardmom plantations. It has 18 cottages spread across the estate. Most of the rooms face the tea gardens, but because of the overgrown folliage, one cant see the tea estates. The cottages are comfortable and decorated in an understated manner. There is no TV in the room. The property... More

Munnar is beautiful; no photographs can do it justice. It is not to be missed. Yet, I would have loved to have given Windermere a miss. Our travel agent, Graves, put us there so I presume it is the best of a bad lot. The property is indifferently maintained, towels, linens and pillows are low quality, bathrooms lack slippers and...

Absolutely hospitable staff...........well kept surroundings. The evening tea time was really nice and the guided trek to the Cardamom plantation was also good. Had an excellent time! Thank you John and the entire staff at Windermere..........Keep it up!

We loved this place, perched on the edge of the mountain overlooking huge views of plantations and jungle, with just a few rooms scattered around the pretty gardens. We were upgraded to a lovely simple and spacious room with a balcony catching the sunrise. Very friendly and helpful staff, nice restaurant in an attractive wooden chalet - especially good breakfast.... More

The journey to get there is not for the faint-hearted, Indian trafffic is, well, different. Bur Dr Simon has a fantastic place where you are welcomed as a friend, treated like a royal and feel at home. We had two memorable days, and will certainly come back if we get the opportunity.

Spacious rooms, well equipped, very comfortable, with unparalleled customer service. All the staff are welcoming, friendly and willing to help. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. The food is amazing! There is a fixed menu evening meal (soup, main course, desert followed by tea or coffee) with a vegetarian option. All dishes we were served were delicious. Breakfast was...
