“Oak Fields Munnar”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We went here because Club Mahindra was full. Location is good but reaching there can be tedious on a treachorous, narrow 10 KM road from Munnar town.. One should drive only during day light. Place looks good but rooms are poor. No proper hot water, no toiletries, no fan and a/c. FOrtunately one doesn't need these in December certainly. Food is elementary quality. People are friendly. If you can find better places, avoid this hotel.

It is a KTDC property but I failed to understand, why they are not promoting it and why its so badly maintained in comparison to other hotels run by them.
This hotel is approx 10 km from main town of Munnar (There is hardly anything in town other then restaurants). Its located in middle of tea plantations and a small cardamom garden. Place is in natures lap and perfect for long walks. Its so quite in night that you can hear wind whistling and its quite an experience.
Its a multistory and rooms on upper floors have better view.
The really bad things about the place -
Maintenance is bad, specially the bathrooms (There is major flaw in design of it).
Limited food options, just 10 items and you have to order atleast 1 hour before dinner.
Bed sheets were clean but walls and window glass had many stains.
Good things about this place -
Location, location and location, its excellent. In nature's lap.
Food is limited but quality is ok. The best part is crockery and cutlery, its clean and hot dried.
For Breakfast there are no options and items are fixed but good quality. Again crockery used is clean.
They have lift from access to upper rooms.
I wish KTDC can maintain this property better, make some outdoor sitting arrangement (They have space outside for same) and promote it.

Room Tip: Rooms on upper floors.

We booked a tour in Ernakulum for both Munnar and Kochi.

For the Munnar part of the trip they booked us into this hovel!

When you walk into reception / foyer you get the impression this is going to be a wonderful hotel full of charm and character........first impressions can be deceptive!

Before I go any further I must say the staff there were wonderful.

We were shown to our room. Our faces and jaws hit the floor.

There was damp on the ceiling, on the wall and around the window. The window look and felt that it would fall out, this feeling was even worse when I opened it!

The bathroom was the worst we,d come across in Kerala.

The bedding had certainly seen far better days, the pillow cases were grubby and when we gingerly pulled the case back to look at the pillow it was digusting! God only knows what the stains were but the blood marks were pretty obvious and gross.

I went in to the corridor and that was even worse. Damp patches, paint peeling and light fitings hanging from the ceiling when they should have been recessed.

We'd been there about an hour trying to decide if to pay to stay somehwere else or risk whatever health hazard this hotel posed when the manager informed us we'd have to stay an extra night due to a strike the next day which would prevent onward travel. This proved to be a saving grace as we used it as an excuse to refuse to stay and said we wantd to proceed direct to Periyar House. We were dubious about what that might be like given this place but we were pleasntly impressd when we got there.

My advice would have to be avoid this hovel at all costs. KTDC should be totally ashamed.

It's hidden jem. We did not book anything earlier at Munnar and found dufficult a decent hotel with a descent price. Seems evrything is over hyped and over priced there. we took a chance to pay a visit to the Govt tourist place ( though the drive was not keen) and discoverd this as a hidden jem in best located place at Munnar. The Manager was really coardial and same with the other stuff. since the hotel was not fully loaded we got a huge dsicount and was given the best room. with little bit maintainence, the room would be worth double the money they charge now at Munnar. Food was also good there though not much choices due to the occupancy factor. the power went off couple of times but they started their generotr immidiately. we enjoyed our stay there throughly. It's more than value for money.

Room Tip: 2nd floor left hand corner is the best room there

This hotel is on a hill top away from the rustle bustle of the city and by the side of a tea plantation where you can go for a nice evening walk. We stayed in the topmost room of the hotel and its was very scenic from top....it was beautiful to wake up with nice sunrise and being on top of the mountain! Nice book. Only there was problem with hot water but the staff is friendly who helped by providing it. There is a standing shower which is not so comfortable but I think the bigger room might be having better shower rooms...we went for the standard one. In all its a good value for money!

We had choosen this hotel only because of its location . The property was good and located in a tea garden with cardamom trees here and there. Our room was good , spacious and with all basic facilities . We did not like the blanket they had provided as it was not cleaned well. Hotel staffs were helpful. Roon service average . Overall good stay.
