“Nice property, well maintained rooms but close to nothing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

While the property is nice, you have to walk more than a fair bit to find a place to eat or to get coffee. This walk is not pleasant either. You will be dodging cars and deisel fumes all the way to the market and back up again.

Also, its far away from any walking trails so you really dont feel like you are in the heart of nature. This is not the resort's fault of course. It is mine for not doing my homework. Try to stay in rajamalai or somewhere out of Munnar. Munnar town itself really does not have a lot to offer.

Stayed with family for 2 nights in December. Excellent location, clean rooms, friendly staff.... Quite happy. Children simply rolled over the grass.... Stayed in E block which has good view rooms. Balcony sit out is quite refreshing... Highly recommended for a relaxing holiday.. Spa by Shantagini is quite good....

Stayed there with my wife and 3 year old daughter on 3rd week of dec. Right bang in the city but once inside you will feel heaven. Smooth checkin, followed by fruit basket and a good view from the room balcony. Stayed in the premium room K block. Buffet dinner and breakfast was quite good with sufficient variety. Had lunch one afternoon...kashmiri pulao was too good. As usual with any KTDC hotel, staff was very polite and helpful. Rooms were vert clean, big and so was the bathroom. Enjoyed every moment of my stay at Tea County. Thanks to them for giving us a good time.

Nice place to stay in Munnar for family, friends or couple. It is suggested to go for MAP as buffer is reasonably good. It has nice location, quite big area & all basic amenities. Room are specious and well furnish. There is wifi available but only in reception area, which I found inconvenient. Overall it is quite nice and highly recommended hotel for stay in Munnar.

I stayed at Tea County for couple of nights last week with my family You will surprise yourself with this well maintained government property. It is an enormous property spread out over a big area which has very beautifully nurtured gardens all around the cottages/.rooms. The rooms are very spacious, clean and have an enclosed balcony. Nothing exceptional with everything you would expect from a decent 3/4 start hotel. I had read a lot about the food in the hotel and my own experience is a bit mixed - in room dining is very expensive and would rate it below average. The dinner buffet had a good spread and found it good.The hotel can do much more with the kind of space they have. Overall good stay!

Room Tip: the property is well spread out so chose rooms on first floor to stay close to lobby and restaurants

The hotel estate including the lawns, rooms & the restaurant are amazing. This is the best place to sit n relax and soak in the beauty of munnar! The food is not really great and the wi-fi is only available at the rdception building, not in the rooms. The roons are very clean with all amenities taken care of. The lawns are beautifully maintained and best for an afternoon walk.

Room Tip: The G,H & I rooms provide beautiful views both at front and back. But they are quiet far from th...
