“Unexpected Pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

A recent trip to Fort Munnar hotel proved to be a delightful surprise. Besides a warm welcome, the hospitality of the staff impressed us very much. A charming Coffee Room off the lobby called Coffee Casa overlooked a panoramic view of emerald green tea estates and a lake which we were told also served as a watering hole for wild elephants. Very interesting sight-seeing trips were arranged, we saw mountain goats called Ibeks perched precariously on mountain slopes and got our first glimpse of a tea factory. In the evening, wrapped in warm clothes, we sat on the lawn around a camp fire and enjoyed a folk dance performed by local tribals. The food was absolutely excellent. The Chef catered to our every taste without a murmur. The rooms also matched the hospitality -spacious, spotlessly clean, offering splendid views of the surrounding hills and forests. We found it the ideal ambiance for a terrific holiday. So, impressed were we that we've already decided on another visit. A superb place to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city!

Room Tip: A rooms from where you can see the Lake is definitely the best choice!

I stay in this hotel for 2 days as part of my journey to Kerla I stay on 7.12.2013 and departure on 9.12.2013. 1st of all I like the location of that hotel but when I went inside and did my room checking all story change, room are not as spacious as Abad plaza Cochin. We found dirty bed sheet , dirty pillow cover and a bunch of hair in bathroom . Seriously room needs some maintenance and proper cleaning . Then we decided to order our dinner in room and we order fish curry and khichadi . Fish curry was superb but khichadi was horrible and again we found hair in khichadi. Then thanks to front of staff Frances he admit his mistake and give us complementary snacks and hot drinks.

The hotel is 20 kms away from munnar ... nothing to do around there but just spend time in the hotel .... the food is also not so good but no option as nothing is close to it to go and have something else ..

Room Tip: Stay somewhere closer to munnar and not so far away from the city

I was with family last month had an opportunity to experience Munnar and offcourse Fort Munnar !its an ideal place to feel the beauty of that place offers with top class hospitality. A friend of mine told of Fort and its worth you spend !! You will feel the warmth of friendly hospitality while you check in in the front desk .The hotel is not Fort or something .lol but its has got that right ambiance it brings ,reaching out there is easy and you wont feel any sort discomfort during your stay because some one will be there always to look in to your needs and comfort ! its really a home away from yours and they manage to achieve what they expected .You wont have any complaints while Fort staffs always bring the best in serve you with a pleasant smile !!! the stay was good in neat and tidy rooms and the food is really up to your expectations in that cold weather ! was a pleasant stay ......with friendly people !!

Most disappointing leg of our holiday.

The drive to Munnar is as spectacular as it can be. We were in for a huge letdown...

The place is 25+ km away from the city, takes almost an hour as its a hill drive. We were provided rooms that had an extremely strong fresh paint odor.

The room service and housekeeping is painfully slow, everything needs at least 4-5 reminders.

The food is way below average (just because I can't call it bad). Limited options, the dining room is cramped and depressing, whereas a restaurant overlooking the valley was empty all through. True for both dinner and breakfast.

Booked a message, which was delayed by over half hour. The standard of the spa forced us to skip it.

There was an empty discotheque (basically a large room with flashing lights) blaring loud music..

We had to cut short our two day stay to one.

Please avoid this place.

Room Tip: if you must stay here, please book a valley facing room.
