    Sathishkumar's 3 days trip to Kovalam

    After our trip, we felt that it wasn't worth for that much money particularly while off season in munnar. Regarding hotel, there wasn't much variety in food ( I'm saying because earlier I have stayed in another hotel which is located at the hot place of munnar, where I saw lot of varieties at low cost comparing to this hotel). I have asked for scenic stay but seven springs is not the one.

    Venky's 4 days trip to Kovalam

    The deadline to order Dinner in all the hotels is very early. Need to extend it to atleast 10:30 - 11:00 PM as having dinner at 9:00 PM for travellers is not feasible. Hot water in bathroom was not proper hot for bath, upon asked we have been told that it is due to single phase electricity. Expecting very hot water in hotels in the places like Munnar where the climate is very cold..No varieties in breakfast in all the 3 hotels we visited, Idli Sambar & bread butter was common in all the 3 places. Was expecting Appam, Medu wada or any traditional Kerala items in breakfast.
