I stayed in Mount Pleasant from 15th May to 18th May 2013.We were 5 Adults and 2 kids. Mr.Najmal(owner) had given us a warm welcome and showed us around the premises. He and his family were very friendly and they treat you as one of their family members. The surrounding were very calm and green. The backyard and front yard has pear trees.There is a small play area for kids outside, which the kids liked.
We had booked the Prime Suite and this room had a another open room upstairs. The kids were very happy with this room.
The rooms are clean and well maintained. During your stay, I am not sure they would clean up your room when you are out unless you request for it.
The breakfast was very delicious (idli, sambar, chutney, poori,omlette, bread toast with butter). You will have to inform in advance if you will be present for lunch or dinner.
The location is very good and Mr.Syed (Tour operator) had helped arrange for sightseeing every day. We had a chevrolet Tavera driven by Stephen a young and kind chap. I recommend to book your daily tours through Syed.
Stephen was a good and skillful driver and guide, He doesnt speak hindi or any other language, but he can understand english and replies back in tamil :) Though we dont speak Tamil, being from southern India, and having used to listening to Tamil, it was easy for us to understand what he has trying to say. If you speak tamil, he would be the best to guide you around.
The upper lake view is actually walkable from this place. It might take 10 to 15 mins. It would be cool to walk over there early at 6.30 or 7 AM to have a nice view. Beside the homestay, there is a flower nursery, you might have a look, though it is not a sightseeing place, its worth having a look.
Places to Eat:
Abys Cafe for snacks (chats, pasta, pizza etc)
Astoria (only veg)
All in All, our stay was very pleasant and enjoyable. My thanks to Mr.Najmal and his family for making our stay a memorable one.
Highly recommend for families, if you have kids, book the prime suite.
