We left Cardamon House today after two wonderful nights. One week into our tour we'd begun to tire of towns and temples. Nestled on the side of the hills and overlooking a beautiful flat valley with a lake and village nearby and rice fields in the distance, this is a wonderful place to chill. The locals that run the home...

If only we had had another couple of nights here. So relaxing and quiet with lovely views and a good clean pool. The 6 local staff were so friendly and willing to share their local kowledge with us. The dog walked us around the lake and then, after all the other guests had gone, slept outside our room for the...

What a find! Completely different to anywhere else we stayed in India, it's was a really special, relaxing place in the middle of the countryside with lake and mountain views. It's run by Chris, a retired Brit and his lovely, efficient team of locals (plus some friends and a nice dog who took us on walks!). Particular highlights were the...

This is a picturesque valley and the property has a nice view of one end of the lake. Room was a little small, but nice and clean Nice swimming pool. Dinner was good, but lunch disappointing. (We took one dinner at another property in the valley, which we preferred) Service was OK. The staff were nice and friendly, but seemed...

It is hard to know where to start to describe this wonderful homestay, the arrival along a narrow dirt road past an ancient rural Shiva temple where devotees invited us to take part in their ritual, the warm greetings from the owner and the staff, many of whom have been there for more than 15 years, the food ... the...

We received a very warm welcome at Cardamom House and passed a whole week in this beautiful place. Yoga in the morning on the roof terrace, receiving a delicious breakfast with home made bread and fresh fruit; a very personal service from the staff who helped us finding out some excursions. But mostly, we liked to stay there, just reading,...

Cardamom House is a long way from anywhere. But the journey is worth every minute. A beautiful, tranquil setting; comfortable rooms; an immaculate pool; and far better personal service than you'll get in most five star hotels. This was our second visit and we were delighted to find that the team were still together and as friendly and efficient as...

We like to vary our accommodation when traveling - sometimes hotels, sometimes B&B's - we are not fussy but we do expect to get the type of accommodation advertised. Cardamom House is listed here on Tripadvisor as a hotel; it is not. However, as that is it's listing that is how we shall review it. Cardamom House is in a...

What a silly review for it tells the reader NOTHING about Cardamom House at all! We are and have always been a small Family Homestay" with just 7 rooms and a friendly family atmosphere - and have never claimed to be a hotel in any form at all. The reviewer spent two days with us (where all notices serve as...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
AN OVERVIEW! Nestling in the Eastern foothills of the mighty Western Ghats, "Cardamom House" overlooks the monsoon dependent "Kamarajar Lake" and is surrounded by unbelievably beautiful mountainous scenery. Recently we have completely upgraded all facilities and now have a superb modern SWIMMING POOL ; FREE WI-FI ; AIR-CONDITIONING ; NEW THICK SPRING MATTRESSES ; VOLLEYBALL FIELD ; H.D. TV IN COMMUNAL AREA ; CHILDREN WELCOME!!The staff have been working together as a team for some 16 years - and several of them (having visited the U.K) speak English. We are proud of our cuisine which encompasses a wide range of culinary styles (Indian, Continental, Thai, Chinese - and we often 'invent' recipes ourselves! Food is of the highest quality and we purchase only the freshest of fresh vegetables sometimes twice a day - to ensure the 'pick of the crop'.BIRD LIFE AND WILDLIFE? There is an abundance of Birdlfe including peacocks and many others. Leopard, black panther, lynx, jungle cat, bison, sambar,barking and mouse deer have also been spotted from time to time. HOW TO GET HERE? CHENNAI(MADRAS) airport is a 45 minute flight from both MADURAI and TRICHY Airports - both an easy 2 hour drive away. So despite being in a very remote place, we are very easy to get to!THINGS TO DO? Relaxing : walking : photography : swimming : yoga : meditation : Village Tour : Madurai Temple : Kodaikanal Hill Station. In summary - our little "Family Homestay" owned and managed by Dr. Chris - a retired British physician. Cardamom House is a perfect place to 'drop out' and have a truly relaxing holiday whilst being 'spoiled rotten' by our excellent staff. ... more   less
