This is an old converted theatre. The walls were covered with pictures of old Infamous movie stars. the rooms had pictures of a famous movie. The staff were helpful but not many around though.
It was on the outskirts of the town itself. The usual chorus of vehicle horns, but the most unexpected was the loud speakers bellowing music from approx 4pm till approx 8pm. Would recommence from approx 6am. Suppose to uplift the community and this seems to occur in many places around South India! So be prepared.
There is the usual buffet meals, snacks or coffee needed to be ordered from the other cafe/restaurant next door. It wasn't staffed but you needed to notify the restaurant so they could switch on the lights and serve you. A bit disappointed the coffee was from a vending machine! Buffet breakfast plenty and the usual selection, Indian and western cuisine.
I liked the rooms, clean and comfortable. The shower had a separate cubicle to the toilet. Our balcony over looked Munnar's sporting ground (we were on the left side as you faced the hotel entrance).
Gym was basic had a treadmill and a few weights, no good if you a serious body builder or fitness fanatic, but lovely to visit early in the morning when the air is so fresh and to the chorus of music bellowing from speakers:)
Downside - the corridors were noisy, people having conversations on level 1 could be heard on level 4! Loud music from speakers.
Great views from the balcony, the rolling hills of a tea plantation town, the ride out of the town shows even more hills and tea ever where!
