“High Range Club - Incredible place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

I stayed for one night in February this year. Everything was extraordinary, the drive up from Cochin, the tea plantations and of course the club itself. I stayed in one of the cottages which was excellent. If you are expecting a modern hotel you will possibly be disappointed but I cant see how anyone would arrive at the High Range Club without having done some reseach about it beforehand. In which case it is difficult to imagine how you could be anything other than enchanted. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The meals were simple and delicious and you can lose your self for hours soaking up the atmosphere in this wonderful place. I enjoyed my visit so much that I put together some photos here : http://india1976.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/the-high-range-club-munnar-established.html .

Stayed February 2013, travelled solo

This a heritage property (read old), but is well maintained. The building will give you the old world charm. It is an wooden building with antique furniture and paintings. The living space is just about average as this is a wooden building it is not comfortable as the concrete building would be. It is situated very close to the market so it is an advantage. But when we stayed there it was a Sunday Morning and the local decided to have a morning session, though nothing was in sight but we could hear songs put up on loud speakers, which was annoying. But this is no fault of the hotel management. The staff was well dressed and well manner. This was an old club that is now converted into a hotel so the architecture was good and the club is very well maintained, on the flip side you are not allowed to photograph the club, which is disappointing. The best part about living here is the garden and the golf course, yes they have their own golf course. The garden is very well maintained and has lovely flowers.
Final verdict, if it is a short stay worth to enjoy the heritage feeling and the beautiful sights around.

We had the opportunity to have 2 dinners at the beautiful old charm club being affialiated members.It is such a beautiful old property it is shame it is not being used as it should be..it's heritage one must respect and cherish.we loved the simple but ample set menu..The staff dignified and courteous..would recommend it as must have experience of the old planters culture.. Hope the next generation will preserve such old traditions..the men especially liked the men's only bar.with all the old shikar trophies and hat stands...unfortunately they have no liquor permit ..all the same we had a good time.

This is a club come hotel and the location is very nice .there is a golf club just outside and the view is very nice the sit out area and the gardens are very nice but it all gets over by the slow service .
If they improve this then it might be one of the best place to stay.other than the manager mr arsu other people are not courteous enough and some people may not like it.

And that was true. It is a club where the attention went all to the club with his members. We got cottage 9 which was dirty, the walls were moisture, the matrasses were thin and underneath there was a wooden board. The service was not good. They told us the wrong time for dinner and breakfast at 8.30 was impossible, IT had to be at 7.30. When we arrived we were alone and breakfast wasn't ready yet. And this was at Christmas night and day. We had a two day stay but left after 1 night. We don't recommand this hotel!

I am a city dweller, so when my husband and I first entered the property we were taken to our room which was the cottage off the main building of the club, separated by an internal road. The room was a typical old colonial styled room with a small sit in area, comfortable bed, a nice large dressing table and a nice large bathroom. I was initially worried that since it looked and felt old, would it be comfortable. But it was very comfortable with hot water being available through the day and the night as well. You need to let the club know if you are going to have lunch/ dinner atleast 1.5 – 2 hours in advance. The food is well cooked and tasty… but with limited menu.

To get back to my first impression of the club was that it had a very Brit feel. The main club building is also very warm and spacious, very unlike the modern clubs that we see in the cities. It is very easy to get into flashback of about 100 years back and can imagine the British coming here, with a cigar and a glass of whisky in hand. You can also see the older version of Squash court, a library, pool table and a smoking room – with entry only for men.

The best part of the club is the huge golf course…. For someone who stays in Mumbai, so much of open space feels like another planet altogether. Another advantage of the club is the location, it is much closer to the main town area, unlike the other 4-5 star properties. You can take a short 5-7 min walk to the main road and you will get the local rickshaws on hire.

In terms of service, one should not expect a ‘hotel’ experience as this is afterall a planters club. So do not feel let down if the actual members get more attention compared to you. But overall a wonderful experience and I am sure I will always prefer to stay here rather than any other hotel property everytime I visit Munnar.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main building are also nice. Ask for rooms wit a view to the golf course, if availa...

I guarantee you...if there is any one here who knows high range club well, its me for sure!!!

Even if it would be a 7 star hotel to come up in Munnar & even if I would had been given a complimentary stay I would still be staying in high range club only...YESSS

Many of you would be a family- you may have small children, so do make you children aware as how was a once upon a time heritage lovely bungalow all about!

you may be a honeymooner trying to make out your first tour to know each other or you may be a middle-aged couple or just anything what you are...take my word on this- should you have a little taste inside you! or just little!!!!

pls do go to High range club!

Blessed are those english officers who made this place as a recreation for them pre-independence, what an amazing place- 5 star fusses off course are better advised to stay at bay- those really taste budders who have a choice may not miss this heaven!!!

No hotel in Munnar would have such a big land- it has a golf ground with full of lawn far spread in acres as much as your eyes can see them, the architecture here is all wood & load bearing construction & I think the images show quite a lot for you to feel as what a old heaven it is!!!

It takes me almost to a feel if I am a planation owner myself in Munnar (though I am in Maharashtra) one day I would like to bring MY BSA M20 (my faithful 1938's 500cc beast here in this club- photograph on it in the rich portico of High range club sit on it & sip a coffee...)

Hardly anywhere in India such a place is existing, its existing & it will for its heritage, it will remain warm only for those who will value it!!!

For those peculiar guests who have seen in life only but hotels & expect only that... I advice now itself please keep out of this place- this is certainly not your cup of coffee!!!

IF high-fi service is not all that you want, if you are expecting good warmth & serene tranquility, crystal clean hygiene & want to treat yourself with Notalgia with experience of the BRITISH RAJ with Munnars real serenity...than i pledge

This place is to be worshipped ahhh i love it!!! High Range club you will be my all time favorite in Kerala- if I have overrated pls forgive me but I have fund no other place than this to write a review as this for it deserves a poetry of praise.

Room Tip: do u play golf? if not go & learn it here or take a lesson!!!
