The staff were incredibly kind and warm here. We arrived from a more expensive, fancy hotel and this staff invited us in very warmly and genuinely. They were just overall patient and helpful. Our room was comparable to others at the price but it was very big and so rather comfortable during the inevitable down time of the rainy season.... More

Everything about JJs is just lovely! The staff/family are super helpful and polite, the atmosphere is great, the hot water works and i think its the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in... I cannot recommend it highly enough. STAY HERE!

We stayed here for 4 nights last week and enjoyed the peacefulness of JJ Cottage. The location is about a 25 min walk outside of Munnar town, but been close to town isn't critical here with restaurants and cool bars close by. We took both a guided trek and jeep to the top station, and got value for money on... More

Had a lovely stay at JJ cottage. The owner is a very nice man and the rooms are clean and pleasant. The hot water was also a treat. Great price too. Would recommend the treck arranged through the homestay- quite expensive but the views were incredible.

We turned up without a reservation, was straight away offered a lovely room, free WiFi and signed onto a 18/20(different depending on who's asked) trek the next day. We expressed a desire to rent out a scooter and the next minute he'd called and arranged for one to be dropped off. I recommend the cosy accommodation, the beautiful trek and... More

We really enjoyed our stay at JJ Cottages. The owner was very helpful and accommodating when our trip was delayed by a few days. Our room was small but comfortable and clean, the value for money was excellent. It is in a pretty quiet spot which was a relief as the town of Munnar is quite hectic (as usual for... More

Eric (owner) was really helpful in arranging our trek through the tea plantations and was always on hand to help out whenever we needed (recommendations for restaurants etc). Rooms were nice and spacious. Only criticism was that the wifi was a bit poor!
