Stay: 24th December 2016 to 29th December 2016 Review: Value for Money: Booked the Alpine Suite directly through mail interaction with Mr. Pramod @ 8, 500/- which you can call an indulgence though it is worth it (read further to know more). There are 2 alpine suites, room [105/106] We stayed in room 106 and the room was large enough to accommodate 2 families. Each room has a sit-out offering excellent views of the valley. The room has the standard fridge/oven setup but what surprises you is the cut-out kitchen, practically making it a home away from home. You don't require the AC as it gets pretty chilly in the hills. The room manages to keep the cold out just don't forget to close the windows. Service Quality: Excellent. The hotel staff is accommodating in every sense of the word. Special mention of Mr. Pramod who was there to greet us every time with a warm smile. The staff is courteous and prompt arrangements are catered to. Food & Drink: The hotel has a restaurant area called Alphorn and caters to a wide palate. The food is served hot with a fixed menu. The food is pretty filling. Breakfast is complimentary and there is enough to choose from or you may get an omelette custom ordered. Location: The touring sights are fairly close-by I. E. Within a radius of 30-50 km from the hotel (though the mountainous terrain causes issues with speed being under 40km/hr most of the time). Being amongst the hills there are many photo-ops for selfie enthusiasts. Do check up at the reception for kathakali & kalaripayattu which are located close to the hotel and end up being worth the watch. Amenities: There is free WI-Fi connection for posting the occasional updates. AC isn't required as it is pretty chilly during night. There is 24x7 hot water. Also you have oven/fridge a small sink. They have geared cycles which can be ridden at a nearby tea garden or if you can huff and puff your way on the mountain roads. Cleanliness: The rooms are kept clean, fresh or extra towels are replaced/kept as and when you call the reception. Special mention: Be sure to carry woolen clothes and sunscreen. Also carry medicines to avoid getting sinus related issues. There are various properties cropping up in the vicinity but I would vote the Swiss County as the "MUST VISIT" place.

Top Reviews of Swiss County
On a particularly sunny morning, us harrowed, tired LOVE BIRDS, drove to the steps of a neat little nook of Swiss County, Munnar. Having just been through a big journey we were indeed a bit skeptical. However, all of that vanished like a bad dream as we were ushered into our room - the one on ground level. **** And span, softly lit expansive room with minimalist, contemporary decor and a generous french window that opens up to the nearly pristine valley of Munnar (we chose to ignore the construction site in front). The food was definitely a high point. The soups were refreshing, the dishes sumptuous and one particular dessert preparation was near divine. If you crave more of local flava suggest trying out the Barbeque Corner, right beside the State Transport depot adjacent to the Hydel Park. Chicken in coconut gravy - enough said! Back in the bliss of our room the excellent hospitality made us feel at home by second nightfall. Not to mention the owner dr. Joice michael. He is a gem of a person. We were living in the hotel as daughter and son all though our stay. All the couples and families if you want a swizerland kind of a experience in Munnar go for this property. I would definitely come back again for sure in my life ... So touched by the owner as well as the interiors of the property. Thanks for a very special, memorable experience. ( ADVICE : go for Alpine Suite
Swiss County Picture perfect! Swiss County is a cute little hotel tucked in the hills of foggy Munnar. The styling of the hotel is Swiss themed as the name implies. The hotel is well maintained. The staff is attentive and the manager makes sure your stay is comfortable. The food was delicious. Almost everything we ordered ( Chinese, Indian, snacks) were made fresh and tasted heavenly. The breakfast though a la carte, had a lot of variety. Everything was made to order. The restaurant is on the top floor and beautifully designed. It has an amazing view of mountains and tea plantations. The decor of the restaurant, like the rest of the hotel is Swiss inspired. The only food that wasn't satisfactory was Italian. The fried ice cream is one dessert worth trying. It was the best I had in India. There is a chess board near the reception. We had great time playing. All these things were undoubtedly amazing. The best part though, was the view from the room. The magnificence of misty mountains leaves you spellbound. The view can be enjoyed from the bed itself. We stayed there for two nights in Swiss Regalia 112( shared the balcony with 111). The second day was a strike in Munnar, with almost everything closed. Yet we ended up having so much fun. The hotel also has a colourful garden and a mini landscape with a couple of chairs to enjoy the view. The manager gave us bicycles and showed us the way to nearest tea plantations. Between cycling, chess and room service the day of the strike turned out to be our best day in Munnar. This place is definitely recommended for honeymooners. It's charming, romantic and will leave you with wonderful memories.
We visited Swiss County as the second stop on our Honeymoon. After a nice 3 hours drive from Kochi we finally reached Swiss County which is a good 8-9 kms away from the Munnar Market area. The hotel looks exactly as what I saw in the photographs. It is a bit on the downhill side but the view from the rooms is breathtaking. It has the perfect swiss chalet feel to it. The rooms are wonderful with a nice balcony which gives a fantastic view of the valley. The bathrooms are perfect, the bed is cosy. The staff is very friendly, helpful and timely. The food is great and they have a variety on offer for the breakfast. You can choose any room as all the rooms are facing the valley. Don't forget to spend some time for the bicycle ride which you can enjoy for free in the mountains. They have 2-3 nice bicycles which you can hop onto & ride off. Definitely one of the best places in Munnar for a nice luxurious stay at an affordable cost.
