“nice hotel, good location, well maintained property”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

My first experience of staying in a ktdc hotel. And I must say it was a pleasant one. The location is very good and reasonably in central part of wayanad where you can reach most of the places easily. Even though, Sulthan Bathery is a busy little town, you are very much away from the hustle-bustle of the town at Pepper Grove.
The property is a well maintained one and beautifully built. Staff is accommodating and helpful.
Overall a good experience

We booked this online before reaching wayanad 2-3 days before we travelled in a group of 5 people. The stay all together was good, except for the room service. The rooms are clean. Lot of space outside the hotel if you want to sit out /hang out.

Probs - not a great location as you would hardly get anything nearby.
Very limited food options.

Will recommend.

Pepper Grove on KTDC website says, "Close to Manichira Lake and mountainous landscape". I wonder whether the people who wrote it has ever visited this place.
There is no lake except for a pond which is hidden beyond an embankment. Mountainous view ? ! You have to ask at the reception.
It is not so easy to find the location as there are no good signboards to help you.
The architecture of the building is beautiful, but the landscaping is sheer pathetic. There are no trees in the compound unlike what you see in most other property of KTDC.
The rooms are tidy and very well maintained.
The staff are cordial, but they badly need good training on hospitality. Nobody even cares to help you with your luggage and all they do is show you your room. The women cleaning staff are more keen on eying the guests and on passing comments at them. Like in some other KTDC property, I found the security personnel to be very friendly and helpful.
Food served is OK, but certainly not worth what you pay for.
The tariff rates are very low. Rs.1400 for a Non AC Deluxe room and Rs.2000 for A/C Deluxe, inclusive of complimentary breakfast ( You don't need an AC room here even in peak summer ). Considering the low tariff, it is ideal for a transit stay and don't be surprised if you see groups of men gather there on weekends, just for drunken parties.

Room Tip: Non AC rooms are OK even in peak summer

We, a group of 9 people, stayed at Pepper Grove, Sulthan Bathery, Wayanad for 3 nights -a wonderful experience for all of us. First of all, it is a well maintaned hotel with dedicated staffs. The premises is so beautiful and neat. The garden is maintained. The service we received is so amazing. We enjoyed the services of staffs especially Benoy and Sinjith who are dedicated to KTDC and they both are an "asset" to KTDC - Benoy's wonderful room services as well as dining hall services and Sinjith helped us to carry our bags to rooms and again on our return back to the vehicle. The food was very tasty and we really enjoyed the stay over there.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms- 103 and 104 are having good outside view and get better room services. Moreover...

We travelled to Sulthan Bathery in the month of January, The hotel is situated approximately 1 kilometre away from NH 212. This keeps it away from the traffic noise. The rooms are small, but neat and clean. Hot water is available 24 hours. The beds and sheets are clean and so is the bathroom. There is ample car parking.

The staff is courteous,which is something you do not expect in a government run hotel. Food is simple South Indian fare (Veg & Non-Veg), which needs to be ordered atleast 45 minutes in advance.
Breakfast is included in the room tariff.

Overall a good experience.

Room Tip: Get a room on the first floor. A/C rooms are not required, as Wayanad is pleasant in the evenings t...

Good (big) clean room included tv with English channels, nice hot shower and great (room) service. They arranged a safari for us which we thoroughly enjoyed.
The surroundings are quiet and green and there is plenty of space to relax on the KTDC grounds.
Breakfast was good, omelete with toast, butter, jam, coffee and juice. Only downside was that there was no wifi available and it's quite a walk to town. Tuk tuks do not pass frequently so you do have to walk a bit or order a taxi through the front desk.
