Mermaid Hotel
Ranked #96 of 103 Hotels in Munnar
Reviewed March 18, 2010

It was a leisure holiday Munnar we had planned from Bangalore. Our local tour operator had recommended The Mermaid hotel as it has its roots lead to the over 100 years ago. It is run by the government of Kerala and is used usually to accommodate official visitors.

The location is pretty good as it stands over the center of the town with all amenities at walkable distance. All the rooms are very spacious and it make for a wonderful old granny home kind experience. This is a perfect place for all people on official duty or on business purposes.

However, if leisure is what you are truly looking for this hotel would not be for you. This lacks the the feel of the sheer beauty of Munnar. You would bethe missing pure essence of Munnar by not staying in some resort on hill tops fora around same price.
The hotel does not have a restaurant of its own and you'll have to go out even for a cup of tea. The other hotel facilities like TV, room service, bed linen etc are also a little mediocre. So in all you don't feel all that excited to check in into the room. It lacks that zing.

So if a quick business is on your mind, then this budget hotel would serve your purpose. Leisure and this hotel cannot come in the same line.

Vaccation at Munnar is excellent especially in the month of September as it is the season beginning. Munnar is famous for its vast area of tea estates. One of the major tea estate owner is TATA of course. As far as the hotel is concerned, we had booked an executive suite in Mermaid Hotel which is one helm of a nice hotel. The executive suite had a lavish hall, with a double bed, not to mention TV. The room service is quite good. Nice to order a couple of beers and hang out in the lobby. The hotel is calm which is a bliss.

We were planning to visit Munnar to spend some valuable time. Browsing through the list of hotel options, we found that Mermaid was quite good looking and very affordable.
On reaching the hotel, we found that the hotel was very similar to what we had seen in the photos. The checkin was brisk and the place was quite comfortable and cosy. The weather outside was quite quite but the inside was quite warn.
The room itself was quite spacious and good looking and well maintained.
We really enjoyed the stay and would recommend the place.
