We stayed 2 nights at Cardamon House and wished it could have been longer. The rooms are rather quirky with a walk in wet room with solar powered shower which, if you timed your shower correctly, was fine. The food was lovely - freshly cooked and delicious and the staff who looked after us were delightful and very attentive. Chris the owner was a very interesting character and we had several very interesting chats with him. There is also a lovely swimming pool to take a much needed 'cool off' from the heat. Just one warning - you will not be alone in your room, we had a couple of lizards sharing our room which we found lovely! So many thanks to all at Cardamon House, we loved our stay.
What a great team help Chris run Cardamom House. Great home-made soup & fruit light lunch on our arrival before relaxing with our binoculars on the verandah watching the sunbirds. The pool was welcome, the staff super-attentive and helpful. A really relaxing place.
We spent two nights in Lovely Cardamom House. I can't recommend this place highly enough in terms of it's beautiful location, comfortable accommodations, wonderful food, lovely attentive staff and incredibly interesting history that accompanies the former owner that lives there. A great place to truly relax and unwind. Nice pool to dip in too. Anthoor is a small village nearby that is worth a stop for a cup of chai tea and to wander around. The people are very welcoming.
Chris and his team looked after us like royalty. Nothing was too much trouble. Cardamom House is a haven of tranquility near to a monsoon filled lake for great bird watching. The swimming pool makes a great retreat from the heat. We had three delightful nights with meals eaten at communal tables so we met interesting people who were also travelling through the south of India. The only bit we didn’t like was leaving.
My 3rd visit in ten years. Fantastic pool and great lakeside birdwatching and butrflies and dragonflies in abundance. Service and care of guests is excellent. Always made very welcome and nothing is too much trouble. My holidayhome from home! Sunbirds bee-eaters painted-stork babblers hawks
