This hotel is a short drive from many tourists spots in Munnar so we loved the location! The hotel is in the mountains and has a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere, almost hidden from the rest of Munnar. The hotel does not have many rooms, so we felt as though we had the place to ourselves. The hotel room was... More

We had an enjoyable two night stay at Olive Brook. Luckily we had been upgraded to the newer Eden rooms as the Eve rooms (in the original colonial bungalow) looked dark and fairly drab. We had plenty of space but were slightly bewildered by the layout and odd furniture. It feels a bit run down with bathroom cupboards and door... More

The Olive Brook Hotel, about 5 kilometer outside Munnar, is a very pleasant place to stay. Good rooms, balcony, looking out over plenty of flowers and in a beautiful environment. They offer guided walks (kardamomwalk!), high tea (although not so high as in England!) and cooking demonstration and by tuktuk over a road with nice views you are quick into... More

We stayed at Olive Brook for 2 nights with our 6 months old baby. There are less than 10 rooms in total. Eve and Adam cottages have sit-out whereas the Eden has a balcony (not a private one though). We booked the Eve Cottage and the room was quite comfortable. It was neat as well. If you are planning for... More

We have stayed there for 3 days. It's good and away from town and surrounded by deep forest. We have enjoyed the stay and natural beauties around. Food was not that good and expensive too, it's better to try food outside.

I sent my parents for a trip, and quoting them here "This property is absolutely stunning when you look at it the first time, its garden is beautifully monitored and maintained and the property is spotless. However, the misery begins when you enter the rooms. Its located amidst heavy vegetation, hence you cannot open the windows because the insects swarm... More

You need to pre order... Staff were very helpfull... The closest restaurants are in Munnar town ( 20 - 30 mins drive). You can try the buffet at... More
