I would also recommend Chancellor resort/Ayur county. Stayed there with friends last February. Rooms were spacious and food was excellent. Per person rate was around Rs 1200. (1 Night stay, 2Break fast,1 dinner. Campfire Rs1000.00). Location is here N 10.030755 E 77.16134.

Stayed @ Ayur County one month back and the stay is really good.
Rooms are clean and the view from rooms is good. Its located on the way to Munnar from Bodi.

Only thing is, You wont get many options for food nearby other than Resort's restaurant. So plan your food timings well and this shouldnt be much of an issue.

Actually most of the better accommodation is not in Munnar proper but in a village (I hope I spell it right) Chippalkanal a few km out of town. Starting from Mahindra there are Sterling and quite a few others which are more economical. To get there you drive across the bridge on the road in front of the Tata office/shop. Munnar itself is quite corwded and you may not get what you want.

It's Chinnakanal, thats where Chancellor Resorts is located and is away from the madding crowd of Munnar town.

Thanks for correcting me. We spent a week there in May 2004, so obviously my memory is a bit rusty (age you know). I must say it was one of the loveliest place we went to. This is one place when a bus passes on the road below you can smell it.

Thanks in advance guys.

As others have mentioned, you may get good rates with online portals.
You can definitely book with them

But its absolutely necessary to call the resort and confirm your booking before you embark on your journey. (since these portals act as third party agents)

Just out of curiousity, doesnt this resort require a bit of offroading to get into ? This along with Siena were the most recommended places although expensive, wanted to try it once.

nkrishnap, Bella Vista is decent. We stayed 1.4K/day in May. If you are looking a much more cheaper and decent option, SN Sujatha Inn is pretty decent. The former is 10 km on Idukki route, and latter just a km away from town on Adimali route.

Stayed at Sienna Village or three nights last month and can recommend it without reservations. Great rooms, well maintained and great garden though the food could improove a bit.

There are not many dining options in Munnar anyway. We tried Club Manendra for dinner one noght and then Ayur County but the food was not really got at any of the places....they use too much chilli in Munnar apparently

It takes an additional two hours to go from Munnar to Camp Noel. You need to drive up to Top Station. The folks from Camp Noel will then pick you up in a 4*4 Bolero and take you to Camp Noel. It is a 45 minute ride on a bumpy, breathtakingly beautiful track.

Camp Noel is a wonderful place to stay in. They have independent cottages and a few rooms. The food is terrific and they take you on hikes and jeep safaris or simply let you relax and soak in the scenery. I fell in love with the place after spending a week there.

@DD, I liked the gallery that they have put up on the site, could you help me with more descriptive feedback of the place in terms of cleanliness, food etc. How would this compare with Chinnakanal, or any other resort?

We are planning a longish drive before the school starts

Chinnakanal is not a resort, it's the place where resorts like Sterling, Club Mahindra, etc are located.
Chancellor/Ayur County is located on the Chinnakanal side so when you drive from the Theni-Bodi side you can reach this resort quicker than from the Munnar town side (via Udumalaipet-Chinnar-Marayoor).
