This is a large eight-bedroom homestay with a lovely garden and a lake view, situated in a quiet spot some five kms. beyond Athoor village. It offers lunch and dinner on request in addition to bed and breakfast. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with en-suite shower/w.c. facilities. The owner, Chris, a retired UK doctor, and a management team of eight mostly local assistants are all very friendly, efficient and ever present to make one's stay enjoyable. The food is very good, varied - both European and Indian - and well presented. During our stay we had breakfast and lunch outside on the garden terrace overlooking the lake, and dinner on the rooftop terrace where there is a barbecue and tandoori oven. We enjoyed a walk around the lake, and made a friendly visit to the local village assisted by one of the homestay team. This is an ideal place to relax for a few days and from which to visit nearby sites, including Madurai (less than 2 hours by an express road). It ranks among the best homestays we visited.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building have verandas with garden views.

What a pleasure to share the meals with other guests. Outstanding quality and service. Wonderful place to relax before continuing the journey. Will be even more interesting with swimming-pool to be built after April 2013. Interesting vist of the villages around.

Room Tip: Prefer the rooms in the main building, otherwise many stairs to be climbed.

As near to a perfect little place to relax as is possible. Chris is the perfect host and his staff are marvellous. Food and drink are excellent and the ambiance is all that could be desired. Chris says that a pool is coming by mid-2013.

Room Tip: Ask for the one at the top.

On my fifth visit to Cardamon House I have decided that it is the place in which I most like to be, 'home from home' where I feel part of the family of Chris and his wonderful staff. Nothing is too much trouble and one's every need is catered for. The view of the mountains and the lake provide a perfect backdrop for the abundance of birds and butterflies. It is very easy to sit of the veranda and dream, it is even quite difficult to find time to read a book!. To add to all this, SMILES are the order of the day, all day and every day.

Room Tip: A veranda room

Total peace and tranquility with wonderful food set on a sub tropical hillside miles from anywhere. Chris and his team made us so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. Contact with the outside world by wifi if you really need to. We had a totally relaxing three nights with them. The house dog will show you the way to the lakeside walk. All in all an incredible experience
