Amazing experience all in all as the whole place is themed after movies and each room is dedicated to movies. Good & courteous staff. Delicious and authentic food. Neat and clean rooms with all standard amenities. The only thing missing is good WiFi network in the premise. Recommended for family or couple stays.
Me and my wife visited Munnar for a romantic getaway on Valentine's day. I booked the hotel online and requested for Chennai Express Suite 212. Shah Rukh Khan stayed here during the shooting of movie Chennai Express. Luckily we got that suite and it was worth staying there. The hotel is located in the town center from where everything is easily accessible. This is the advantage compared to other resorts which are located on the outskirts. The whole hotel is based on movie theme. The staff were very cooperative and courteous. They gave us a special importance due to our occupancy of Suite No. 212. We took hundreds of photographs with the help of staff. The breakfast was delicious and had many varieties. The whole town was visible from the room. As Munnar is a hill station, A/C was never required here. They provided us free carom and chess games in our room on our request. Overall, a truly unforgettable experience. Would definitely love to visit here again. Advice : Opt for Suite No. 212 if budget permits.
The hotel is new – probably not more than a few years old and not very well-known except to the tour circle – and will surprise you positively. I was pleasantly taken aback by the grandeur of the hotel. The façade is much better than most other hotels in the area, the rooms are very well furnished. The location is in Old Munnar town, within the main town itself and around 10-15 kms away from most attractions of Munnar, so the location is easy on your travel budget but you don’t get to live in the clouds. I liked our room- it is not cramped and beautifully furnished. A big lacuna in the rooms is the lighting. The room is pleasantly shadowed in the day and depressingly dark from early evening onwards. It is too cold, windy and foggy to go out in the evenings and the surroundings are invisible from the balcony in the dark, so it can get irritating that the room is too dark to do anything much except sleep. Apart from this, in my opinion pretty serious problem, our stay was very pleasant. The room is clean, the bathroom spacious and bright. All in all, full marks for the interior design (except the lighting). Although the rooms don’t have a view because the hotel is in the town and not on a hill, Room no. 308 and the rooms above and below it have some sort of a view. These rooms are corner rooms and therefore the balcony is open on two sides. The smaller side of the balcony overlooks a green football field and the green tea plantation laden hills with the clouds descending on them can be seen from the balcony.
We have been to Silver tips last week. The facilities were good and value for the money. Actually we started to Munnar around 5 PM from Thekkady and reached to Munnar 8:30pm. While reaching to Munnar, we had so much fog because of that Driver was unable to driver properly and drove slowly. We reached to safely to Munnar. We thought to stay some where near to the road but taken wise decision to search for Silvertips, we were able to find the hotel with no time. Once we reached to the hotel we felt that, we have taken great decision to search for this hotel. If we could have adjust some other hotel near to the road, we could have miss very nice and good hotel like Silver Tips. Facilities, Food, Housekeeping everything is excellent.
Stayed there only for two days. Hotel was nice it was a movie theater they converted that into hotel. Room were big and non smoking. Food was great. Hotel staff was really helpful. Good thing about this hotel is good WiFi and small play area for kids. Nice statues and some props of movies.
I stayed at this hotel as part of my Honeymoon last year in December 2014. The trip went well and I will never forget this hotel. This hotel was previously a theatre. Each room has a different movie theme to it. I booked this hotel from goibibo and got 3000/- off per day. I stayed at this hotel for 3 days. I booked a suite and they gave me "Life of Pi" themed suite. This suite is dedicated to the director of Life of Pi as he stayed at this hotel when he was in India to shoot for the film. The room cost me around 5400/- (after 3000/- discount from goibibo) which I thought is good enough for the suite. The hotel is one among very few that are inside the city of Munnar. The staff are very well behaved. The welcome drink that they gave after reaching the hotel was awesome. The check-in was completed before I drank my welcome drink. Everything about this hotel is awesome, except food. In fact, if you are an outsider of Kerala, you will find it difficult to enjoy the food at any part of Kerala leave alone Munnar. I suggest you pack some pickles before you go on to the awesome journey of Kerala. The breakfast was complementary, for all the 3 days. We travelled throughout the day, so we mostly had to skip lunch and dinner as Silver Tips cost us about 550/- per head, which is expensive for the food but it's the same everywhere in Kerala. So, I guess I can't complain on that. You can ask them for a pick-up from airport or railway station. I asked for pick-up from Cochin airport and it cost me around 3500/- and the driver Aneesh was really a good person. I will definitely recommend this hotel for everyone who is willing to visit Munnar. My suggestions, pack some pickles, and buy plain rice each day.
