Everything about this place is exceptional. From the genuinely warm hospitality, the amazing chef, the personal service, quality of room, amenities, views, the wonderful host- this is really the very best. During our 14 nights in India we changed accommodation 6 times and this was one of my absolute favourites. I would highly recommend it.

We stayed two nights here and had a lovely time. The room was well-furnished and comfortable, with a balcony overlooking the plantation. Cyriac couldn't have been more helpful - nothing was too much trouble - and he took time to show us around his spice farm, which was fascinating. As others have commented, you can bring in your own beer,...

This was a lovely place to stay. Our room was beautiful and very tastefully done with a lovely en suite shower room. It had a very colonial feel about it.

We stayed for just one night but it was very pleasant. The rooms are very clean. The homestay is very close to the main road yet very calm. The food was too good. Hosts (Mr. Cyriac & Mrs. Doly) are very loving. Would surely recommend. One advice to fellow travellers: the home stay is not marked right on Google maps....

Lovely comfortable well maintained home stay with great hosts and good food. Would definitely recommend anyone stay here. It is an oasis of calm in the hectic place that is India, nothing too much trouble and set in 7 acres of luscious land with an abundance of home grown spices, fruit and vegetables. Dolly and her husband are clearly wonderful...

Great stay at Pepper County. Excellent service and genuine Kerala good. Relaxing grounds. The food comes from the surrounding area and is full of flavour. The attractions are close by and the town is worth a visit for souvenirs. Will come here again !
