Oak Fields
Ranked #57 of 101 Hotels in Munnar
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I must say, I forgot all the shortcomings of the hotel just due to location. Its awesome view - right in the middle of tea garden, somewhere on the top of the mountain, always in the clouds and their sprinkles. 2 nights and 3 days in Munnar was simply awesome.

Not sure but it seems the service workers are good and they wanted to help every visitor there but the management is not impacting the final service delivery. The lift was not working and it was difficult to go to 2nd floor where we were staying. I also didn't like the food - they always tried wrapping it in buffet only, no ala-carte was available, food was really good though. No Wi-Fi as we have been said that no telecom lines were available till that height. Rooms were very spacious. Night time it was very cold. Exhaust fan in toilet was irritating and noisy. As it was connected to the light inside, you have to get both at the same time. For some time, phone was also not working. Overall it was a good pick and location plays a lot here.

Room Tip: Awesome location. Serene environment. Morning was really blessed.

This hotel is located midst of tea gardens - almost 5 km from Pothemudu View Point - 10 Km from Munnar Town.
Pros: 1. Far from madding crowed, on the lap of tea gardens 2. Very economical, atleast during monsoon 3. Spacious/clean room
Cons: 1. Bad room service 2. food quality & cost of food

The place was totally value for money. However its a 45 minute ride from the main town...which matters when you are running on a tight schedule. The roads weren't good either.
The hotel however was good. With the windows opening towards scenic tea plantations. Would suggest opting for a place closer to the town though

its one of the few resorts which is located in a tea estate. the windows present a beautiful view. the staff is very helpful and they make every effort to ensure you are at ease. the only discomfort is that this place is far from the town.so you need to plan your supplies (beverages specially :P )

Room Tip: all the rooms have a tea garden view. Still I would say room number 202 to 205 are good.

it is very good hotel but it is very far away from munnar city, its almost 10 kms above the city means it is on the top of the hill and very silent area also.
but the hotel is very good, service is very good, conditions of rooms and restaurant and toilets are very good, means overall it is very good,
the side view is excellent having tea valley around the hotel and very good scenes also.

Room Tip: ROOMS ON 3rd floor are very good in location

Pros :

Big spacious clean and a definitely value for money hotel. Photographs shown on cleartrip are correct.Located on the tea estates, the hotel has a wonderful scenic view overlooking the mountains . Peace of mind is sure guaranteed with a feel of staying in the lap of nature. Staff are polite and well mannered.Ample opportunities for long walks among meadows . Hotel has a restaurant which serves upto satisfaction.

Cons:
Distance from the munnar city is a problem if you are looking for too many outings. You will need to have your taxi which are available in kerala on daily basis with you for the entire duration which is roughly about 1300 per day for 150 kms. Room service at night is poor.
