“Good Hotel, awesome place to stay”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We stayed in a cottage, the rooms are quite big, it has a veranda (a roofed platform just outside the cottage ) with chairs, nice to sit there in evening, Restaurant is a long way down if you want to dine, It was raining all the time when we visited during June, heavy fogs too, would surely recommend. Guess its the best place to stay @ Ponmudi..

This is the best hotel in Ponmudi, its location is really awesome. Visited during June so we enjoyed the rain and heavy fog, if you don't like it avoid visiting during rainy season. Rooms rates will charge additional on Saturdays and Sundays even if you book it online. Nice location, good food, friendly staff.

Room Tip: Try to reach place early and enjoy the rest of time, kitchen will be closed by 9,9.30pm, so if you a...

The only hotel in Ponmudi is run by KTDC. The location is fabulous. We visited just before the monsoons started. The climate was very cool with swirling mists all around.
In fact the climate and scenery was better than Munnar, which is the most visited hill station in Kerala.We had to reschedule the booking as my daughter fell ill during the period.This was arranged by the hotel. But getting the contact persons and mails from the reservation centre to hotel was difficult due to procedural hassles and weekend holidays.
The hotel is located on a hill top with awesome view of the valley and surrounding hills. The facilities are basic but clean.
The hotel provided complimentary breakfast which was OK. We had breat banana fritters (vazhaka appam) at tea time. Dinner has to be ordered early in the evening itself. We had chicken curry, which was nothing great, and some chinese starters which were OK. The place does not serve liqour and there are no outlets any where near. So if you want some booze in the cool climes, be sure to carry it from the plains below.
Overall the experience is very good, mostly do the surroundings rather than the hotel per se.

Room Tip: Ask for valley view cottages.

The place is very nice & ideal to spent few days to relax free of mind, out of city's noisy atmosphere, Its a calm & cool place for families & couples for relaxation. The service rendered by Mr. Gopu Chandran (Manager) and his team was excellent, we would again like to come back here with our parents for relaxation & enjoy the beauty of nature.

Impressed by the ambience and well maintained property. Also appreciate the good work and service by Mr Gopu and his team. Had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the holiday so well to make it memorable always. Think a small ice machine is essential to attract the property

we my family and seven other friends with their family started our journy on 01/05/2009 reached at 5.30pm. we are welcomed by the golden red sky and more than twenty individual cottages including honey moon cottages all are kept a safe distance so that there won't be any disturbance from neighbours. I was really attracted by the hairpin bends and ghat roads, the river which is not flowing but rolling over the pebbles attracts everybody to have a chat with her. the calm and quet nature give us a lot of relaxation. there are new cottages and old cottages . one interesting point we noted that the spring water coming from the hill top was collected and supplied to cottages on gravitational flow. the cold offers you smooth gentle shivering, make you to wrap under the woolen coats. the next morning we visited the next highest hill top used by the defense department for communication purpose on the top of the hill we feel we are at the end of the world. the hotel gave you not cheap but moderate food it was good and tasty. the officials and their behaviour was extremely good worth staying at these place
