Travellers' Choice
Quaint cottages, fragrant tea gardens and mist-draped mornings are hallmarks of Munnar. For years the cool and picturesque town of Munnar was the summer retreat of the British and it still retains the charm of a colonial past. The destination is home to the only sandalwood forest in Kerala and is also famous for its exotic flora and fauna.

This resort is a fine place to stay in Munnar. The resort spread over 5 acres is located in heart of Munnar town and so easy to plan your visit to local attractions. The resort is very well maintained with beautiful lawns and flowers. There is a small outdoor kids play area and they also had indoor games to keep the kids occupied.
The rooms we stayed were of premium category which was recently renovated and had good views of the valley from the balcony. The hospitality was top notch with all the staff eager to help with a smile.
The breakfast spread was really good but quality of food we ordered could have been better though. Overall a great place to spend with family.

An excellent premium property owned and managed by Kerala Tourism Development Corporation (KTSC) right in the heart of Munnar town. With in town, yet you are totally away from buzzing noises of a town. Spacious Cottages with all modern amenities. The sit out/ balconies provide great view for the guest. The in house restaurant serves good breakfast/ lunch/ dinner. The food options are plenty with continental/ south/ north cuisines along with traditional food. The spa with Ayurvedic treatments are available in the property. They also arrange the outdoor activities in and around Munnar such jeep safari/ thekadi drive etc. beyond that, if you are really planning a relaxed mood right with in the property, since I opted that was great right here. It serves a beer/ wine parlour for the guest with great seating arrangements.

The front desk/ house keeping/ restaurant staff / security are really courteous and ready to serve your requests. Which is unusually great feel especially when you opt a government owned property for your vacation. You will experience that extra special care right from making a call/ emails/ check in/ check out period.

The property is well protected with round the clock security along with ample car parking facilities which is rare for properties in Munnar town limit (even outskirts of munnar). Provide wifi facilities with good speed, power back up, LED televisions with all channel subscriptions makes great feel if you relax with in the room. Sip a nice hot tea from Munnar hills, with pakodas in the evening again a great feel. With small kids play area/ table tennis/ snooker/ carrom options available in recreation section, which still can include more options may be advisable.

Yes, getting bit aged and modernisation may be advisable. But with this serene environment around, I still prefer these elegant arrangements in the property. A standard property, recommended for all kinds of travellers.

Optimally located to make travel to various site locations easy. At the same time the place is away from any noise and has sufficient greenery. You can wake up listening to Malabar whistling thrush every morning. I don’t think any other place in Munnar offers both the advantages

Rooms were excellent. Staff is very friendly and is always ready to help. They help with itinerary, local travel and pick up/ drop. The drivers they arranged were also good. They travel advise we’re also spot on.

I was expecting the food to be costly considering the reviews. Breakfast buffet is included with room booking. Dinner buffet was very reasonable at 400 inr. I haven’t tried lunch there. Dinner on non rush days will be ala carte. Food as Room service is the only thing expensive and can be avoided.

Toiletries included were soap, towels, comb, moisturiser, shower cap, shower gel, tissue, toilet roll, shampoo, disposable razor and shaving cream. Basically you will have to pack only toothpaste and brush

It was such a serene place to chill out. The rooms were spic and span although each staff so amiable including both house keeping staff and securities. One thing I noticed that after check out each rooms were sterilized as per the covid protocol that was an appreciable one .I strongly suggest this resort for both couples as well as professionals

I stayed at the Tea County during January 2023 (4 nights). The Hotel is located well within the town on a hillock and has reasonably good landscaping and large campus.
Front office and housekeeping are professional and the personnel have been attentive and caring.
Room was clean and linen and consumables were replenish regularly.
Restaurant has good ambience.
However, the following grey areas need mention along with the above:
1. The access road drive to the hotel located on a hillock is often a nightmare as the road get narrower with sharp curves and double side parking terribly obstructing the uphill drive.
2.The architectural design of the Hotel looks pretty good from a photographer's point of view, but for a customer it is not at all elderly/people with locomotion problems. The rooms are spread across a 15 acre or so, hillock with undulating terrain and bumpy walk ways.
3.During monsoons the Hotel is a big 'No No', since you along with your bags and baggage will get wet to reach the room.
4.Room was kept clean but on several parts of the wall, paint and putty had come off due to wear and tear. The room requires an overhaul.
Restaurant
5. Tariff and Charges: The Hotel claims to be 4 Star rated and their tariff and food charges are fixed accordingly.
Despite its excellent design and valley view ambience, food served is of average quality and the buffet range is very limited both for BF and Dinner.
6. The Hotel does not have a Swimming Pool and no functional Fitness facility either. (Authorities who accorded 4Star Rating should review their decision based on the current state of the Hotel).
7. Elderly and physically challenged persons will find really difficult to reach their room from the reception lobby as there are no lift facility nor is the steep stairs, wheel chair friendly.
Summary
Good Location, good looking structures. Facilities are average. Personnel delivering services to their best, of course.
Poor accessibility to rooms and not monsoon friendly nor advisable during peak winter.
Tariff and Restaurant charges are not commensurate with the range and quality of services provided.
Advice: There are several hotels located on similar or better locations, offering better rooms and more services at cheaper rates than Tea County. Not worth the money you pay for.

I visited KTDC Tea County Munnar with my family from 6th March to 8th March. We stayed in their suite rooms. We had booked two rooms there. We had a wonderful stay. The staff is very helpful and welcoming. Food was good, could be better though. Wonderful property with lots of flowers and greenery. There was gardening staff constantly cleaning the gardens.

The housekeeping staff was very thoughtful. Seeing my infants sleep, they cleaned the room in almost pin drop silence. Really appreciate that. Knowing my kids could cry and I would have to leave the buffet mid way, the kitchen staff ensured that the food got delivered to our room for me on time.

Since we went during the women's Day week we were given the women's Day discount on both our rooms. They gave us a welcome welcome gift and ensured that we had a great stay

We had a wonderful experience at ktdc Tea County Munnar,would recommend that place to everybody.

It was a quick trip. We packed the bags in. The morning and just drive down to munnar from guruvayoor. We arrived at 8 pm at tea county. We were sceptical if we would get the rooms...but we did get the rooms. It was perfect. Clean rooms. Well arranged and spacious with a balcony. The rooms had heaters which was a blessing as the temperatures go to 10degrees.
Dinner buffet was pretty good as it had an ok variety and it is better to take the buffet rather than have an alacarte dinner which would be much more expensive than the buffet price.

Breakfast was complementary with a good variety of food. Would be great if the variety could be enhanced.

The staff were well behaved and very accomodative. They were friendly and gave us assistance for the next day tour.

You can walking around in the morning as it has a good walking course.

The parking lot is pretty big though not modern. Could have concreted the parking area as that would enhance the look of the hotel too and parking will be organised.

Overall a value of money property to stay. We will come again to this place.

Thanks to the staff for their lovely and friendly hospitality

Regards

Froid

Check in - 19th Feb 22 | Check out - 22nd Feb 22
Wifi details are given to you, you dont have to ask for it.
Every room has an attached balcony with an excellent view.
The lawns are very well kept and every tree has a many flowers on them.
The service is impeccable. They asked if we needed an extra bed as we had a kid.
Every individual from the person at the reception to the cleaner greet you every time you cross paths.
The property is in the middle of the market yet it has solitude. There are a lot of Veg and Non Veg restaurants with a lot of options to eat and also a lot of bakeries.
There were different kid of birds within the property. Do make a point to meet Mr. Rajendra who will help you right from helping you with you baggages to guiding you to visit the best places.
He and most of the staff work here from more than 20 years.
The buffet breakfast is simply veg but very tasteful with eggs to go on order.
The ambience is magical and the property is maintained like brand new. Very warm and hospitable staff.
Tea County is a 5 star resort for me. The property, the location, the service and above all the people are all 5 star and above.
5 Star treatment, must visit.

One of the highest altitude resorts available for stay at Munnar. Staying amidst of Munnar town with the sight of buildings around did not seem very pleasing at our first sight. However, we planned to stay since the main idea was to enjoy the climate.
But the stay exceeded our expectations with regards to the climate, the amenities and the hospitality.
Pros: Well maintained property with regular maintenance going on. The rooms were constructed in old bunglow model and the architect did justice to it. The garden and the walkways are maintained beautifully, creating a feast for your eyes. Hospitality of the entire staff is excellent. The location is one of the best in Munnar. Being in the midst of Munnar town, you have the ease of access to shops and other tourist destinations and can explore different restaurents. Acces to the facility is much easier compared to the off-road rides you have to do to access most other resorts.There is a beer and wine parlour inside the property.
Cons: The food in general needs to be improved. They serve a variety of meals with good quantity (though a bit overpriced for a 4 star?). However the taste part lacks. You won't get that 'wow' feeling after tasting most of their dishes. But considering the other pros, it is not a major drawback, since you have a lot of options to explore nearby. Another drawback is their online booking system doest seems to be working fine. I booked via 'Agoda' app and I got a booking confirmation. However the front office informed that they did not receive any intimation or confirmation. Since rooms were available, I did not had other issues. But I suggest confirming directly with the property over the phone that the booking is actually made, before you arrive, especially during peak seasons.

the property id very close to the town, if you book suite room you will get to be near to the reception building. The property is very vast and the buildings are of cluster type, the suite room building is double storied and would recommend to go for first floor for better valley view.. The premium rooms are also facing valley view and stands about suite room on location.Suite room have a drawing room additional considering the premium room. But the premium rooms are newly furnished and in very good condition considering suite rooms.
