“A Tad Expensive affair ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2010

My trip to munnar was a spur of the moment thing. my hometown was cochin and munnar was just 125 odd kilometers from there. since i got married recently , i wanted to book a cottage and at the moment , this was the only one available close to the town. i didn't care much for the money that day and i booked the deluxe room.

The plus points
---------------------

1. close to town (in fact in the town only ) but quite peaceful.
2. The cottage was pretty big and very clean. They had separate dressing room and a spacious bathroom with a tub.
3. Good view from the outside as i got a valley facing room. Nothing spectacular but good.
4. Free buffet breakfast and dinner. They mostly served south indian food. Might be a problem for people from north india.
5. They have plenty of space for parking.

The negative ones
-------------------------
i really didn't have any unpleasant experience. but the only thing that lingered me after my trip was the the money i spent. i spent close to 6K on it. i am pretty much sure that there would have been cheaper options with the same facilities near by. This was very much evident when i told my father who had worked in munnar for some time.

The hotel is pretty good and its expensive also. Definitely not for the budget travelers. But if you do indulge in splurge occasionally , try it. you wont be disappointed.

Location of the hotel is good. But, Breakfast and dinner buffet was very poor. Most of the preparation was in Kerala style. We could not expect it from a four star hotel. Room was ok.

1. good view from the delux room
2. dont go for premium room- as though they are bigger, they are on the ground floor compared to the delux room which are on the first and ground floor. ask for a delux room, valley facing, first floor.
3. breakfast is great in the hotel restaurant.
4. traditional south indian food is available in a very simple hotel, Sarvana Bhuvan near the bus depo in the heart of the city.

Good ambience, well situated with pleasant gardens and view of the town across the valley.
The bar is good, the food is good, the staff are very pleasant and helpful, There is plenty of space and for the most part it is very quiet but we did have a problem with a bird which seemed to whistle all night so we lost some sleep !!
All in all a very good place to stay but not suitable for those with mobility problems as there are a lot of steps from reception to the restaurant and rooms

We went to Munnar as part of the KTDC package and spent 2 days at Tea County. The resort is of very good quality. Food is fine with adequate variety. Not too tasty though. Comes with a Spa which is really worth going to. Munnar doesnt have many places to go to, but the resort is certainly a good place to spend indoors. Leaches are a worry and something one needs to have an eye for. Else the hill station is filled 80-90% with tea gardens. Munnar to Kumarakom is a straining journey (part of KTDC package), but a pleasant weather will certainly reduce the pain.

This hotel is at the hill top and the view one gets is really refreshing. The staff is very co-operative and helpful, I would recommend this hotel to everyone who pays a visits to Munnar.
