The Windermere Estate is a property nestled between Tea, coffee and cardmom plantations. It has 18 cottages spread across the estate. Most of the rooms face the tea gardens, but because of the overgrown folliage, one cant see the tea estates. The cottages are comfortable and decorated in an understated manner. There is no TV in the room. The property...

Munnar is beautiful; no photographs can do it justice. It is not to be missed. Yet, I would have loved to have given Windermere a miss. Our travel agent, Graves, put us there so I presume it is the best of a bad lot. The property is indifferently maintained, towels, linens and pillows are low quality, bathrooms lack slippers and...

We loved this place, perched on the edge of the mountain overlooking huge views of plantations and jungle, with just a few rooms scattered around the pretty gardens. We were upgraded to a lovely simple and spacious room with a balcony catching the sunrise. Very friendly and helpful staff, nice restaurant in an attractive wooden chalet - especially good breakfast....

The journey to get there is not for the faint-hearted, Indian trafffic is, well, different. Bur Dr Simon has a fantastic place where you are welcomed as a friend, treated like a royal and feel at home. We had two memorable days, and will certainly come back if we get the opportunity.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Windermere Estate is an 18 room plantation retreat surrounded by the cardamom, coffee and tea hills of Munnar. Established as an estate in the 1940s, Windermere recreates the essence of an estate home devoid of a hotel atmosphere with a unique blend of simplicity and luxury wrapped in old world charm. Consciously remaining small and exclusive we invite you to experience heartfelt plantation hospitality, delivered seamlessly and unobtrusively. ... more   less
