Bracknell Forest Munnar Reviews

A bit like living in a treehouse Feb 16, 2017
This small hotel (just 11 rooms) is situated among the trees about 10 kilometres from Munnar and makes a good "get away from it all" base in this region. It comes though with a few privations - you will be restricted to eating dinner here (too far to go anywhere else with ease) and as they operate on such a small scale you will be asked to order that meal in advance (at around 6.30 when the restaurant will call your room to take your order). Not that we found this a problem, and the food we had here was tasty enough, if not fancy - I can recommend the mushroom pilau rice in particular. And although they don't have a license to serve alcohol they will helpfully, if given enough notice, send a tuk-tuk to the government shop in Munnar to buy in a few beers for you, as long as you're happy to pay the cost of fetching them (about 20 rupees per trip).

Rooms are staggered up the hillside and we had one of the upper ones, 206. It was a really good size, as was the bed, and we had a balcony where we could relax and enjoy the sound of birds in the trees. The air is fresher here than at the coast and sitting outside a real pleasure. With nothing planned for our first afternoon here we took full advantage of the opportunity to chill for a few hours and enjoy the sense of living in a treehouse.

Evenings here are necessarily low key. There is no bar so apart from dinner you will find yourself spending time in your room. But with these being generous in size there is plenty of room to relax, a TV should you want to watch (we didn't) and pretty reasonable wifi given the remote location.

Breakfast is included in your stay and is served from 8.00 am which we thought a little late in an area where long hikes are popular and early starts sometimes needed. Even with a less strenuous day planned we needed to be ready to meet our driver at 8.30 so we were in the dining room promptly. Breakfast here consists of fresh fruit juice, a fruit platter, eggs cooked to order (I had a very good masala omelette) and coffee, which was OK on our first day but incredibly weak on the second - although the helpful and hard-working waiter did send for more coffee powder so I could top it up!

If you don't mind being out of town this is a relaxing base for a short visit although I wouldn't recommend it for longer than the couple of nights we stayed.

I remember how they used to serve weak coffee in Sri Lanka I guess its quite expensive and you are encouraged to order tea.
