“No hot water!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

The hotel has been converted from an old cinema and as a result it's got quite a cool look. There's movie memorbilia everywhere including themed rooms. Rooms were of a decent size and clean however availability of hot water as well as wifi was hit and miss!

The upstairs dining restaurant was not a great experience. The variety of food was poor and food was served cold. The restaurant is right next to one of the old movie screens, which is used; however the films are screened at full volume making for a very unpleasant dining experience.

Staff are reasonably friendly.

Pros:
1. Big hotel with about 50 to 60 rooms.
2. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is good and comparable to any 4 star hotel with large spread.
3. Rooms are very clean and have housekeeping cleans them nicely everyday.
4. It is very close to munnar bus station and market, about 1km, and so one can actually walk from the market (only when there is no lugguage).
5. It has inhouse kerala ayurvedic massage centre which provides good massages at competitive rates.

Cons:
1. Hotel is bit pricey compared to the quality it offers.
2. Very limited option of TV channels. Out of 60 channels, only 10 were hindi or english.

PS: Do eat at Sarvana Bhavan in Munnar market. If you are south indian food lover, it is heaven.

I had some booking goof up because of which I had to roam around in Munnar trying to find a hotel for my family and that too on Christmas eve. Nothing available on online portals and most walkins said that they didn't have any room available. Luckily this place had just one room available and I paid a very high rate for 24 and 25 Dec. Rate included Christmas Eve party as well and I must say that it was a very well organised party. Great DJ, good music, food not that great, but excellent setup overall. Kids loved the Christmas party....

This is a Bollywood theme hotel and every room is themed after a movie. We got the 'Awara' theme and we loved the attention to detail in making the Awara room. Of course, there were pictures of Raj Kapoor and Nargis... But notable thing was that our lamp shades were Awara hats! Main lobby has given prominence to Mughal-e-azam... Very thoughtful and well done. I was told that this used to be a movie theatre which has been converted to a hotel.

Room was very comfortable and restaurant was ok (not great).

we had been here last week... not that great hotel... i booked a suite they call "gajini"... it is a big room with living and bedroom separtated by only a wooden flank...
services are not that great.... the property is not that great too.... you would not want the honking and traffic noises in your room all day long would you??
there was no welcome gesture ... the staff is unprofessional....the resttaurants not good enough...

the plus points are decent room service... and thats it

Room Tip: book a room on the rear end... offers a gud view of the estate and quieter...

We stayed at The Silver Tips for a couple of days in November this year and the experience was simply superb. Excellent service, great hospitality and superb service orientation. The staff strives hard to make guests' stay as comfortable as possible. The food is great, the rooms are nice and tidy. The movie theme around the hotel also makes it different from other hotels in a similar star category. We stayed with them during Diwali this year, and did not miss home even a little bit. Fireworks in the evening, and a special entertainment program with gala dinner made the evening memorable. And now here is what made my experience delightful. We forgot a much loved pair of sunglasses behind in the hotel lobby while checking out. A couple of phone calls and 15 days later, my sunglasses were delivered at home. True customer delight ! Keep up the good work !
