“good property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We stayed at KTDC tea county, munnar with family. it was the first stay of our 10 day Kerela trip. When we reached the hotel at around 4 PM after a tiring flight and drive from cochin we were warmly welcomed.
We were a group of 6 including 2 children and 2 senior citizen. The reception staff themselves told us that the premium rooms that we had booked were a short uphill walk from the reception and restaurant area and that it would be a difficult walk for our parents. they suggested and gave us a suite and a delux room which were right on the reception level at no extra cost.
The rooms were well furnished, clean and comfortable with all basic neccesities and a nice heater to make the stay comfortable.
the balconies had a beautiful view of the valley.
The Hotel has amnenities like a childrens play area, carrom, table tennis, billiards room and a small gym and of course a Kerela massage center but no swimming pool.
The food was ok and very overpriced.
we had our lunches and dinners outside the hotel during our 2 day stay at Tea county.
overall a good experience considering that the propoerty is run by KTDC which is a government organisation.

Room Tip: Do not o for the permium rooms if walking is an issue.

We were on a family trip; loved the hotel location, landscaping, and interiors.
Great buffet with many choices for breakfast.
Rustic and beautifully maintained interiors.
Lavish and comfortable rooms, courteous staff, very neatly maintained property, serene surroundings, lush gardens, and finally excellent service.
Had a great stay.
This was recommended by our travel agent Mr. Gokul from Innovate Holidays on Abids in Hyderabad, and we are truly grateful to him for all his wonderful advice.

The stay at KTDC Munnar was a memorable one. The hotel is at a great location, close to most of the site seeing venues of Munnar. The hotel’s restaurant has a glass wall on one side overlooking the beautifully manicured lawns and the lush green tea plantations on Munnar hills. Our premium category room was uphill, with a nice wooden deck overlooking the whole valley and another sit out area overlooking a flower valley. As expected from a govt. hotel, the service was laid back despite the best intentions of the front desk and restaurant managers. Loved the steaming Rippley Pot-tea with surprising quantity served by the room service. However the rest of the food menu was a disappointment-neither variety nor taste in the buffet and the room service- though we weren’t bothered too much by it since we had the local delicacies at the nearby Munnar main town-market. In all a very comfortable stay in beautiful Munnar.

We had been here for honeymoon in 2008. Nice location and it's close to the main market. Couldn't believe it is government run.. Very beautifully maintained and run. We had some initial glitches like our room was not ready when we arrived so they moved us to a different room where when we tried to charge our camera the room electricity fused out. But they were kind enough to move us to our room since it was ready by then.. Later we didn't have any issues. We enjoyed the stay. We enjoyed our breakfast which kept us full to skip our lunches most of the days we stayed there..
We found their ala carte menu for lunch and dinner to be pretty expensive. So we found a nice small time restaurant in the main market which served excellent naadan style food. In totality nice experience..

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are nice...

Stayed in the new wing of the hotel, the rooms were pretty modern you dont feel as if you staying in a govt owned hotel. Nice decor, bathrooms spacious, the service was also pretty good. This hotel unlike some others is located in the centre of Munnar, so its accessible from all the major tourist attractions as well as the local market which is just 2 minutes walk. Again as mentioned its a very well maintained huge property, they take special care for the cleanliness around. They have games area which I dint have the time to visit. The restaurant serves really good food with ever smiling staff. They serve buffet dinner which is very reasonable,since Munnar has become very expensive of late. Would recommend at least a two day stay at the hotel. Loved it here!!!!!!

We have visited the hotel during the kerala trip. Nice place to stay. The hotel must improve the food quality in total. The food was not tasty with less choices for buffet. Otherwise the hotel lacations and the rooms are good.

When I reached Tea County, first thing in my mind came was, Is this a government agency run hotel? Although you are near main market area you won't feel that hustle bustle of it. The room is very spacious with a balcony that opens up to serene mountains of Munnar. It's the best view one could get. Everything was perfectly placed inside the room and hotel staff was very courteous. Although we had only morning breakfast over there, it was a very nice and perfectly balanced.

Its a very safe bet if you are a little bit lazy in finding out the best hotel.
