“Gruenberg = Live your dream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

We stayed at Gruenberg in the last week of March for 2 nights. I wouldn't have known about this property had I not contacted their sister property (Rheinberg). And I'm really glad I did. Because Gruenberg was a dream come true. I'll love to return to this property and also suggest to my friends.

Its a beautiful house situated right in the middle of tea plantations with greenery all around. It was indeed the most breathtaking view I've witnessed from a hotel room. We had the 2nd floor room to ourselves (Lorelei). And boy, what a huge room it was! There was a full sized window looking out over the plantations and this provided an ideal view for whatever time of the day you want. And this becomes especially beautiful when it rains. The bathrooms were big and clean. A USP of the room was the bluetooth enabled speaker which didnt let us miss our music too!

We enjoyed the food which was very close to home cooked style. Their breakfast was especially noteworthy. Staff was extremely courteous and attentive. They have a plantation walk included in the package although we could not have a long one as weather was not conducive.

I would have probably given them 5 stars, but would restrain myself only on the F&B pricing and approach route. With no other restaurants in the vicinity, one is forced to eat inside and the food was on the pricier side. On the access road, while the management explained they aren't allowed to construct a road, I wish they do something with the (non) existing one at present. I was just thanking my decision of not driving down else it was surely a suspension breaker for any car.

A suggestion: please equip the room with a mini/bar fridge!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have the best view.

Thanks for the wonderful review. We are so happy that you enjoyed the stay at Gruenberg.
Our motto is to provide 5 star facilities at a 2 star price. We don’t think the F&B price is not all high compare to other hotels in Munnar. About the approach road - its just 100 meters road without tar and we have done some maintenance and even many others stayed at Gruenberg said only this kind of road matches Gruenberg’s theme (A Tea plantation house)
We look forward to keep high standard of facilities and services.

I am adding up views with regard to shils37. We were 2 couples who stayed in Gruenburg in 31st march and had the best time of our lives.
Our stay was made memorable by the friendly and helping staff led by Mr Anand.
They have excellent chef who made the most tastiest mouth watering traditional food of kerala.
Our overall experience in Gruenburg has been excellent. We wait eagerly to visit the place again.

Lovely, new property about 10km outside of Munnar. Large, well-designed rooms with huge windows through which you can view the rolling hills lined with tea bushes. Excellent breakfast on the roof, great wifi connection, and extremely helpful staff who will make sure your every need is taken care of. It is a bit isolated but there is a bus stop about 1 km away to get to Munnar (12R, 20 min) if needed.

We had traveled to Munnar on 31st March, I had reserved Gruenberg by looking at their beautiful website and reviews in Tripadviser.

When we were heading to Munnar there were butterflies in my stomach thinking if it is not good need hear a lot from my Husband :P. When we were searching for address Mr.Anand, staff from Gruenberg was very helpful even he came to pick up us from the main point.

When we reached it was a ecstatic moment for us. Rooms were completely fresh and clean, aesthetically designed.

View from rooms to the Tata Tea estate was awesome, sit out for the view to the Forest, Roof top restaurant to the view of estate and forest was Good. Morning coffee and a walk in the lap tea estates was fresh.

At last but not least Food was great, Hats off to Chef for the taste he brings in to the Food and the presentation was lovely :)

In Total was a great memorable trip to Munnar with Chilling weather and awesome stay.

Wishing all the best to Gruenberg team, They are heading for a Great Hospitality in future.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second Floor

This cute pretty little hotel was a surprising find after wandering on a bike all over munnar in search of a decent and not ridiculously over-priced hotel! My husband and I I found this hotel a few kms from Munnar, near Pallivasal, right in the middle of the tea plantations.
Nice, super clean and comfortable rooms, fluffly beds and pillows and huge windows giving wonderful views of the tea plantations and the lovely mountains.
Anand, the manager is very friendly and the staff is very nice. Prompt service, good food (served on the roof top restaurant) and a great collection of books in their library.
The hotel was so nice that we ended up spending a lot of our time in the hotel reading books and enjoying nature's beauty. In the mornings we would take a walk through the plantations and come back to a lovely breakfast at the hotel.
Overall, a great place to unwind, relax and be with nature!

Room Tip: Choose room 207! Great view of the plantations

Gruenberg is set within a tea plantation and the view over the hills is amazing. Sitting in the morning sunshine on the roof top restaurant, eating breakfast and looking out onto that view - it can`t get better than that! The rooms are clean, comfortable luxuries and the food is delicious. Gruenberg is approximately 7 kilometers from Munnar, so is very peaceful and quiet, however, the local attractions are not too far way. We went to the Tea Factory, Top Station and went for a walk through the plantation. They have a wonderful library also. Perfect!

This hotel is built in the middle of rolling tea plantations with wonderful views of the tea plantations and the mountains beyond it. We could see the views from our bed and from the balcony. The cool air was delightful and refreshing. The food in the restaurant was very good, and the service there was excellent

The best part of the trip personally for me was just sitting by the balcony early mornings and late evenings with a cup of tea enjoying the stunning green tea plantations against the misty mountains

Highly recommended
