We stayed for 2 nights in January 2014. We were disappointed with our stay, and found this to be the least comfortable of all the places we stayed during a 3 week trip to India. The building had a faded, unwelcoming atmosphere despite its historical interest and beautiful setting. The food was mediocre with little choice. Service was adequate, but it was disconcerting to find there was no-one on duty to help us deal with a problem of dogs howling outside our room for most of our first night. The empty bar adds to the sad, jaded atmosphere. The rules and regulations are inappropriate (for example, our driver was not allowed to eat in the cold, sparsely furnished dining room) and suggest the Club is not committed to being a welcoming place to stay.
A place with huge potential, the High Range Club needs a major revamp and a different approach.

Room Tip: Rooms in the separate cottage block have had new bathrooms installed. Rooms in the main building have lovely views of the golf course and hills.

The October 2013 edition of the Rough Guide highly recommended this place. It states 2500 INR per night (double room) and including full board. During check in the manager confirmed it costs us 2900 INR including full board. Why not )paying a bit extra, probably because of the high season we thought. Today we checked out and the manager denied it was full board (didn't care about the reference in the Rough Guide as well) and we had to pay much extra. After having quite some arguments, he didn't do anything at all to settle it and we were forced to pay.

Although the location is nice and quiet, it lacks atmosphere and a bar. Services are very poor. But most importantly, the manager lied and cheated on us... Big shame for India this man! So our advice is not booking here at all.

Greetings from two disappointed travellers from Holland.

The rooms are very well equipped and leave nothing to be desired. The manager is extremely friendly efficient and hard working (ie 8 am to 10pm). The food has a decidedly old world English favour and is very good ( still remember the excellent bread and butter pudding)

But there is no bar licence and hence no alcohol. It is really sad to see the fabled bar looking quite shabby and neglected. The less said about the golf course the better. In fairness when I played it had not yet been cleaned and prepared

So all in all so much more could be done here

Whilst Munnar itself is quite crowded and avoidable take a drive to the surrounding areas ie Top Station etc. absolutely amazing vistas... We saw wild elephants on the roadside..easily the bet views in South India

The High Range Club which is located amidst the beautiful city of Munnar. Far away from the madding crowd yet the perfect place as it is serene and self sufficient on its own. The rooms were very comfortable with the style of traditional British architecture. It faces magnificent Golf Course with a stream of water cutting right across. The food was very delectable especially the Continental Dinner. A very pleasant attitude of all the employees and especially the warm welcome you receive from the management. A definite must stay if you visit Munnar.

The High Range Club is a legacy of the British times, which is struggling to exist. Yes, the location is peaceful and pretty. The Manager is very enthusiastic, friendly and ready to please, however, the service isn't worth mentioning. I have stayed at another ex British club in South India so I'm able to compare. The High Range Club is void of atmosphere and character. As long as the club clings to English standards and adheres to rules of bygone days, I can't see it moving forward and improving standards, which is a pity.
