Deshadan is a Deshappointment Jan 22, 2009
First of all, the lobby is outside. There is an overhang structure and you walk underneath where there is this Neanderthal table. Most of the time nobody is there. If you do get somebody to come there, it is with the walk and talk of a Neanderthal. I shouldn't disrespect Neanderthals, the Homo Sapiens here are a lower species. The place itself is ok, a bit neglected perhaps, but comfortable enough. The absence of any help or guidance is very apparent here. Were it not that a driver was arranged, the middle of nowhere it would be, yesss, as Yoda might say!
Surely, the grounds have something to offer and the scenery is good for distant views of the mountain scape and sunsets, but other than that I cannot recommend it. The dining area is representative of neglect, another outside place with a carport roof and little service. In fact, it is self serve. Why worry about hungry hordes stealing food when you are in the mountains and it's not worth even the poorest to make the attempt. The food is not that good anyway, so it just adds to the dissappointment of being at this hotel. It's an interesting concept, but poorly executed. I give it a C- and that may be generous.
On the morning we were to leave the driver could not be found. There was nobody at the outside lobby Neanderthal desk, nobody in the carport dining area. Looking in cars was the last resort. The driver showed up at some point, but there was no help from the hotel at all. The service here may as well be non existent. Do not stay here without a driver, or you will be stranded without ant help if you need assistance. In positive ways this did not detract from the overall experience in Munnar. When traveling you must expect the unexpected and lack of service sometimes. It's an ok place, not great, but not terrible. An average place that under achieves its potential in possibilities.
