Room R700, good for 2 people (R350 each-was with a friend 1st night). Reduced (slightly) to R650 for 1. More than I like to pay but it was the cleanest room I've stayed in in India. Hot showers 24hrs. Towels & toilet paper! Friendly staff, walks of all lengths can be booked. Surrounded by stunning, lush mountains & not far... More

Lovely place to stay. Manager Eric is very helpful and friendly. He helped us to arrange onward transportation and allowed us the use of his phone to arrange accomodation. We had the room at the top, it has a sitting room and a bed room. Very clean, nicely furnished. Basic Indian bathroom with hot water 4 hours in morning and... More

We were lucky to get a room here as they were very busy. Lovely location and the owner is super friendly. The only thing we didn't enjoy was the massage that we had next door. Very uncomfortable and cold! However JJ cottages itself is a lovely place to accommodate you during your stay in Munnar, (don't forget jumpers as chilly... More

My wife and I loved this place. The room was not very big, but was clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom had hot water and was nice and clean as well. The thing we liked the most was talking to the owner, Eric. He advised us on things do around and explained to us everything we were curious about indian... More

After an awful experience in another guesthouse in Munnar, I arrived to JJ Cottage and since the beginning I felt like at home. The staff is really kind and the manager does many efforts to make your stay as much comfortable as possible. The rooms are really clean. They were cleaning mine for one hour the day of my arrival...

Very friendly owner and helpful. The best very near with bus stop and easy to get tuk-tuk. Walking distance to Nimi cooking classes. Munnar very nice place and a places that need to explore. Really hope the government will put more effort to take care their river and kept their greener.

Even though I stayed in JJ Cottage only for one night, I could feel the friendly and hospitable atmosphere created by its host. I also went for a harder version of a trekking tour organised by the guesthouse which turned out to be a lot of fun and full of beautiful views from the mountain overlooking tea plantations. All in... More

Eric is a great host, and will attend to every enquiry, problem or suggestion with a smile on his face. Rooms are clean, hot water and you even have an HBO channel to watch English movies in your room. It's 15min walk from the main town, but it's not a problem, it's actually really great to be a little away... More
