We recently spent two nights at the Windermere Estate in Munnar and I have nothing but good things two say about it. It is located outside of town, surrounded by lush vegetation with extensive Cardamom and Tea plantations. The Manager was very friendly and competent and we even got a free room upgrade. The premises are well maintained, with a...

When you get there after usually a long drive you do appreciate its tranquility and the views. On arrival, unfortunately, we didn't receive an upgrade as it was mentioned by many previous reviewers. But we were really nicely welcomed by the receptionist. And it was the same throughout the stay - very polite service by all the staff members we...

We arrived at the estate on 10-11-2014 and were given an unexpected upgrade to one of the Plantation rooms. This is a really nice place to stay with lovely views over the mountains and forests. It's worth making the effort to climb up to the viewing point early in the morning just to listen to the dawn chorus and watch...

This place offers peace and serenity as it is away from the town. We travelled last year in December and the experience was amazing. Food was good and the rooms were very well done. Must say that the view was also very good. It has it's own version of a 'view point' where you can climb by stairs to get...

What a wonderfully warm welcome and everyone was so pleasant and eager to help during our stay. The view is magnificent and it is worthwhile to walk up to the lookout point. We enjoyed the breakfast and the one dinner we had was delicious. The afternoon snacks are also a nice touch. We did, however, have an issue with the...

Very simply put what is there not to love about this simple estate which in a breathtaking surrounding. Its charm lies in its simplicity and very friendly warm service.

We stayed at the hotel on the second leg of our tour in Kerela. We couldn't have wished for a more wonderful place to stay and relax. Rooms were clean and tidy, great warm and welcoming staff. A restaurant severing excellent authentic home cooked food. All the staff at the restaurant were particularly attentive to our needs at all times....

Without doubt, the best place to stay in Munnar. Clean and spacious rooms and the most incredibly attentive staff - I don't know what customer service school the staff have been sent to but it must be one of the best - they were unfailingly polite and helpful and you even had someone walking the grounds in the evening to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Windermere Estate is an 18 room plantation retreat surrounded by the cardamom, coffee and tea hills of Munnar. Established as an estate in the 1940s, Windermere recreates the essence of an estate home devoid of a hotel atmosphere with a unique blend of simplicity and luxury wrapped in old world charm. Consciously remaining small and exclusive we invite you to experience heartfelt plantation hospitality, delivered seamlessly and unobtrusively. ... more   less
