JJ's is a step above the rest in terms of cleanliness, presentation and service for the price (700Rs/night). Eric is very helpful and was able to arrange 2 treks for us at short notice (can't recommend the sunrise trek and the tea plantations trek enough!!) as well as give information on buses and trains. Our room was small and basic... More

Hi, I spent 2 days in JJ Cottage. Our rooms (we booked 3 rooms, 700-900 INR per room) were clean and had everything we needed. The location is very good, walking distance to the centre of Munnar. The owner was also very nice. Only the check-in takes ages (filling out the forms and taking the photos!) but I understand that... More

The rooms are clean, quiet and simple! Everything worked well, and Eric was so incredibly helpful. Munnar was one of our first stops in India, so he spent a lot of time with us explaining the in's and and out's of traveling through India. Eric really went above and beyond. He hooked us up with a beautiful 6 hour trek... More

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...
