    Tea in the mountains
    on Dec 21, 2017
    My wife and I stayed for a couple of nights in mid December, in room 104, which overlooks the valley and Cardamon plantation. The highlight of our stay was easily the food, which consisted of a set menu of traditional Indian food. What it lacked in choice it made up for in quantity and quality. The staff at the estate are extremely friendly and helpful albeit watch out for the late night/early morning lights check. Basically, every night someone visits each room to make sure the outside light is on. Problem is that with no blackout curtains the whole room lights up. Similarly, in the morning someone comes round just before it gets light to turn the light off. Honestly it's not a huge thing but my wife is a very light sleeper. Would I stay here again, most definitely. ... More

    Best location in Munnar and lovely staff
    on Dec 13, 2017
    Windermere Estate is a working cardamom plantation and tea estate outside the town of Munnar. The hotel is a little quirky so don’t expect polished perfection or 5* luxury. The people you will encounter are amongst the most helpful and kind you will meet. Definitely recommend you take an upstairs room for the view and extra insulation from the cold damp air at night. Don’t miss the on-site viewpoint and the excellent plantation walk with excellent, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides from Kestrel Adventures in Munnar.... More

    Gorgeous mountain retreat
    on Nov 16, 2017
    Such a beautiful place,high on a peak with magnificent outlook, gardens and pool. Lovely restaurant with delicious food and particularly loved the tea/coffee freshly made in the little cafe available at any time. Loved also the afternnoon guided walk through surrounding areas-very good. We were there for Diwali which was such fun to hear all the celebrations from the village and fireworks.... More

    Energetic Windermere
    on Nov 15, 2017
    The original picture deceived the actual place which was much nicer in reality. The accommodation was very generous and comfortable. The pool was nice but a bit cold. We did a trek beside the residence which was a nice walk through the forest. The food is provided as a set menu but is really good and tasty some of the best we have had and more towards a European palate meaning it was not too spicy but still very flavoursome. A more extensive trek was undertaken near nearby Munnar. We scaled a peak of some 20000metre high but we probably walked the last 5Km or so. It was very exhilarating and enjoyable. All in all I would recommend this place as a good place to stop and stay. Very satisfactory indeed. The WiFi is pretty good here especially at reception the library and poolside but a bit more intermittent in the bedroom. But it doesn't advertise to provide such a service so one can't complain ...

    Wow

    Munnar is a must do destination in Kerala, worth the drive and you’ll share your joy with local and international tourists - hiking to the top of a tea plantation and seeing the mist lift to reveal the mountains was one of the highlights of our Kerala trip. Don’t dismiss the Tea Museum - I learnt a lot and knowing how much work goes into your daily drink is thought provoking .... The Windermere is a spice plantation farm and what you get is perfect hospitality from Simon and his small team, in a peaceful and simple environment. The food is outstanding and don’t miss out walking through the plantation. ... More
