We stayed here for 3 nights, booking from Fort Cochin.
The room was wow. Big bed with air con, clean bathroom, tv and a great balcony to sit out on.
The surrounding view is amazing looking right over the river.
Mr and Mrs Verghese are great hosts and the food was really good.
The key ingredient to be excellent in my book needs to be consistency.
Some days the shower wasn't that hot. The wifi was very patchy. I wonder if another router is needed for the building with the rooms.
The food was really good but some days were a bit basic compared to others. Once you serve really good food for 1 meal it needs to be the standard for the rest of the time.
Overall I would recommend this place if you have a driver. If not Mr Verghese can arrange one for the day in advance.
Tips: walk out the entrance and turn left to reach the village. At the fork in the road head uphill and there are plenty of shops there to get some drinks and maybe beers. If not Munnar has a beer shop.
