Silver Tips, Munnar is quite an unexpected adventure in this otherwise quaint little town. the Hotel has an impressive history: built as a Cinema Hall in the early part of the last century it lived on for many decades as the only silver screen in the area. when the owners decided to convert the property into a hotel they decided to honor the heritage and made it into a theme hotel and that is the single biggest USP of this modern and well appointed hotel.
The rooms and the decor : like i said, this is the deal clincher. every room, suite and even the restaurant is dedicated to some great celluloid classic. I stayed in a room called Charulata, after the Satyajit Ray classic (guess me being bengali had something to do with it) and the small touches like a giant poster of the film and a small history of the movie on our walls were something unique and nice. there are similar small touches all over the room :- a runner on the bed designed as a movie film, lamps modeled as focus lights used for shooting and they do bring a smile on your face as you notice them. you can find varied classics like Godfather, Umrao Jaan and Nayakan all here!! me and my wife spent hours looking at the various rooms with movie names and remembering which ones we had seen!! The rooms are well appointed as well with every amenity one needs in a mid range hotel and with a rather spacious bathroom as a bonus!!
The Location : a short auto ride away from the main munnar bazar. the views are ordinary. for those interested in history there is a quaint little ancient church a short walk away.
The Staff : i went around Christmas last year, which was the peak season in kerala for tourism, so i guess all the staff was geared up for their best so no complaints there.
Extras : The buffet here is quite good and very reasonably priced.
Cribs : Free Wi-Fi please!!
