Staffs were frank and kind

Posted 1 Sep, 2015

The location of the hotel was near to the bus stand. The hotel had provided pickup and drop service. The ambiance at the hotel was very clean and tidy. The interior and exterior of the hotel was very attractive. The hotel needs to provide a parking facility. The staffs at the hotel were frank and kind. There was no delayed in check in and checkout procedure. The room which they had given to me was comfortable, clean and hygienic. The amenities in the room were in working condition. The laundry service was provided by the hotel. The Wi-Fi facility was provided by the hotel. They served us a complimentary breakfast in our room. The hot water facility was provided by the hotel. The view from my balcony was very good. I had not observed the food facility at the hotel. The activities like swimming pool, gym, spa, etc. were not organized by the hotel. I would like to recommend this hotel for other travellers.

wonderful holiday in a beautiful place

Posted 7 May, 2015

It was a nice experience to stay a whole night in a beautiful place. There the atmosphere was chilly and dry, the facilities offered and food was very good. The campfire was really exciting. We danced to the music and we were on our way eravikulam national park on the very next day . .

A well-located hotel

Posted 11 Nov, 2014

Munnar is located nearly 4500 ft above sea level. We visited in November 2014. It's really wonderful experience. Can't forget. Hotel is on top view location nearly to sightseeing points and 3 km far from main market. Problems created was only with conversation with staff, they were not able to understand even Hindi and disorder the arrangement.

Value for money; well-maintained rooms

Posted 25 Sep, 2014

Overall experience in the hotel was good. The hotel was located in a convenient place. I travelled in our own vehicle. The rooms are well maintained with amenities like TV and the geyser in working condition. The appearance of the hotel was good. Staff service in the hotel was good. I had food outside and restaurant facility was not available. I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights with my family. There was no delay while check-in and check-out. I booked the room through a travel agency. There are no activities in the hotel. It is value for the money paid and recommendable to other travellers. Parking facility was available.

Good staff; spacious rooms with good view

Posted 18 Sep, 2014

Did not find any difficulty, used the Google navigator and reached there. Stayed there for only one day. Staff is good. Rooms were spacious, neat, clean and well maintained but sometime the power problem was there. Everything in the room was in good condition and all amenities were working. Good view from the room. Food was good, it was a buffet system. Gym was there but did not avail that since we were in hurry. They approached sightseeing but we arrange our own sightseeing trip. Suggestion is that they should provide travel facility.

Appearance of the hotel was good

Posted 30 Jul, 2014

Overall, experience at the hotel was fine however hotel is conveniently located and no problem in reaching the hotel. We reached late night but no food was available at the hotel, hence we had dinner outside the hotel. We went by our own vehicle for sightseeing. Appearance of the hotel was good and rooms were spacious, neat and clean with all operational amenities. There was a view absorbed behind the hotel but no refreshing activities. No issue in billing and the pay is worth for the stay. I recommend this hotel for others too and this was a family trip went for relaxation purpose in January 2013. I suggest taking care for the customers who come late night.

Located near to the city; food was average

Posted 15 Jul, 2014

The great thing about this place is the feeling of safety which is most essential when out on a new location. A fine place for retreat and group activity. Food has to be ordered in advance and it is average. Being near to the city one can drive down for ones choice. Travel to local places of interest is great. On a whole Munnar is a place worth driving around enjoying God's great creation.

Hotel with parking space, tea garden & restaurant

Posted 3 Jul, 2014

We stayed with family in the hotel in the month of April. Neat and clean hotel for budget travellers. You will get parking facility for vehicles, play area for small children, restaurant, and partial tea garden view from some of the rooms. Forest department garden is at walking distance. Hotel is very good for family stay.

Comfortable resort with breathtaking valley view

Posted 3 May, 2014

I was planning a relaxed holiday for some time. I was toying the idea of visiting a hill station during the summer. I had scheduled my holiday, would be a welcome relief. The prospect of spending time in a commercialized centre like Udhagamandalam or Judaical was not at all appealing. Two destinations fitting the bill came up, Yercaud and Munnar. Considering the proximity aspect Munnar was preferred. My friend who accompanied me arranged to reserve our stay at the Mar thoma retreat. This resort owned by the Mar thoma church of Kerala is a very cosy resort located on the Mattupetty road on a sylvan strip of land thoughtfully landscaped to lend a pastoral appearance. The rooms are reasonably well appointed and offer a breath taking view of a valley below sometimes shrouded in a wispy mist. Hot water provided round the clock added to our comfort as also the comfortable bed and the clean linen The restaurant a rather compact affair offers healthy and hygienic simple fare. The tea they served was indeed excellent and cheered us up enough on cold mornings to start another day. The local offers ample opportunity to explore including a beautiful garden, a quaint market and winding paths through verdant tea gardens It would be appropriate to carry umbrellas and all weather shoes as Munnar has a habit of surprising the traveller with sudden showers round the year. The staff are very courteous and make you feel at home.

Posted 7 Sep, 2012

We arrived Munnar in the week end for which it was very hard to get a nice hotel.One of my friend suggested to stay there and we checked in. The room was very airy, nicely decorated and cozy in a very calm environment.In the morning when we took view from balcony it was marvellous. The lawns, flower gardens in front of retreat was nice .Marthoma Retreat Home in Munnar has one of the best breath taking panoramic views of misty mountains and evergreen plantations that stretches across the horizon.The hotel is beautiful, colurful, clean and the staff is well mannered and helpful. The rooms are clean, decent and have two options - road facing and mountain facing. The only drawback is to get transport to proper city area is a little bit difficult.

Good experience

Posted 18 May, 2012

An ideal retreat from the hustle and flurry of a city life, Munnar don't seem to have a parallel. And if its going to be for a business conference rest assured this is the place for all your creative thoughts to bloom to your firms advantage. The bright flowers coyly welcoming you at the entrance of the retreat indicates the comfortable weather during this time of the year. A decent and comfortable hole with spacious rooms that has a TV, I got a room on the ground floor facing the road. The low balcony opened out to a narrow kids play area that was paved with gravel. The bathroom though small had a separate wet area and with the necessary amenities. There is no regular restaurant but for those who require food is available on order and there is a dining hall where one can dine relishing the natures beauty outside with the sloping hills dotted with workers houses in the background. Obliging service with neat linen will be to your satisfaction. The retreat has a conference hall for conduction official business. The tariff card reflects the rate as Rs 2200 for a deluxe room but you do get the animated shouts of children playing out all free of cost.
