Windemere Estate was perfect for us. Pleasant well equipped bungalows in the most delightful of settings. Our host and the staff were delightful and we felt relaxed from the moment we arrived. The food was lovely a set menu with several choices so we could try different things. A stay to remember

In the midst of a tea-plantation, overlooking a beautiful landscape this quiet, simple and very authentic estate is just a magic place. It comes almost as no surprise that in such an environment, your hosts are friendly, very kind yet unobtrusive. To all this, you add simple but delicious local cuisine and Matthew - the efficient manager - who happily...

I'm sorry, but can't help thinking this hotel is seriously overrated. After reading all the reviews, my expectations were rather high.. but i find the hotel and its grounds very impersonal and cold. The rooms are big, bright and very clean (loooved the huge bathroom), but our room and the one of our friends was without a view (trees and...

This unusual hotel is up on a hill overlooking tea,coffee and cardomen plantations. Most guests eat in the hotel and there is one set menu, but this includes a variety of dishes for the main course. Good if you are prepared to be adventurous with food. The feel of the hotel was very friendly, although due to limited wifi coverage...

We only stayed the one night and arrived late afternoon and left early the next day so we didn't get to see the best of it. The 360 degree view point does almost feel that you are on top of the world and the hotel is set in a stunnning location. The night we arrived was barbecue night where everyone...

What a delight. Relaxed, friendly, superb cooking and a charming room with balcony. Try to ensure a room with a view (as E M Forster once said): the views are magnificent. Wonderful walking from the hotel and around the lovely hotel grounds in what is a warm and fresh climate. This a beautifully gentle place - understated even. The website's...

Beautiful resort, quiet surroundings, fresh cool air. Room spacious and clean. Had problem with storage water tank in bathroom, not enough hot water for two. Staff very friendly and efficient. Small touches like staff guiding us to the dining room with his torchlight in the evening was appreciated. Dinner was set menu, but food was very good. Breakfast was good...

We stayed here for two nights in a Planter's Villa room. The room was large and airy with a good bathroom, a lounge area and a balcony with glorious views across the hills. The safe provided in the room was very small and wifi only available in the communal areas and not in the rooms. The staff here are lovely...

Fantastic location and views to die for. Hotel rooms are like stepping back in time however and really could do with a little updating but clean. I don't mean televisions etc really liked not having them but the bathrooms and decor very much in need however of a general makeover. Also restaurant could do with a bit of atmosphere etc...

Its a long drive from Kochi but well worth it. Do go for one of the villas which are spacious and well appointed. The staff are friendly, attentive and very welcoming. The kitchen has a high standard and will accommodate special requirements. A new infinity pool has just been installed in the grounds. The town of Munnar is worth a...

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
