We stayed for 2 nights at the shamrock and it became a bit of very welcome down time for us during our trip. We woke up to breathtaking views of the mountains at the end of our bed, ate breakfast on our bedroom balcony and received fantastic service from every member off the very attentive team at the shamrock. The evening food was delicious and you can order this at a time that suits you either in the dining area or in your hotel room. There's no small town for shopping etc within walking distance around the shamrock so you do have to get a taxi everywhere if needs be. The hotel were also slightly odd about giving out the wifi code, at first telling us that it wasn't available after 7pm, but the 2nd time we asked they gave it to us, we were a little confused as to why they said it went off in the first place. But all in all, it's a beautiful place to stay with an incredibly hospitable team.

We stayed at Shamrock on two separate occasions as part of Kerala tour. The rooms were large with seats outside looking down the mountain with glorious views. The village itself doesn’t have anything to recommend it - just a small place with a few hotels.

You order food from your room and agree a time to go to the dining room which worked well. Breakfast is a choice between Indian and continental breakfast with an omlette - very good. The Kerala parathas as delicious.

Be aware of very loud temple music which goes off at around 6:30 every evening but only for about half an hour.

We booked two rooms after seeing their very reasonable prices and good reviews. But we were blown away by the view from our rooms. It was worth every penny! The rooms are larger than usual but is poorly lit. The restrooms are good. They don't have a dining area but deliver food to your rooms but we didn't try it, as it was quite expensive. It is located near to Pothamedu View point but the roads leading to this place are very narrow and don't have any lightings, making driving to the hotel at night in dense fog very difficult.

Overall judgement : Fairly priced for such a great view. If possible, do ask for rooms 101 & 102 because they have a nice spacious balcony facing the mountains.

The Shamrock Holiday Home took us by surprise! As you walk down the steps, the place is simply charming and lovely. The rooms are wonderfully spacious and extremely clean! Step out onto the balcony to witness a breathtaking view of the valley and you can almost touch the clouds as they gently drift by.

There's hot water and quick friendly service. Location is only a short drive away from "town" - it helps if you have your own transportation. The rooms are incredible value for money.

We didn't eat there expect for a quick cup of tea so I can say much about the food. We also didn't use the Wifi so not sure about that either - but Wifi is iffy up there anyway.

We'd definitely go back to stay there next time.

Room Tip: The rooms on the top have a much better view - especially Room 301.
