Olive brook In one line: its a lovely hotel and we would highly recommend it. We stayed there for 3 days in January 2016. It is about 5kms from the town centre. It is a relatively smaller property with just about 4 cottages. The cottage we stayed in was comfortable and well maintained and had a newly renovated large bathroom.... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Olive Brook. The setting is wonderful and the gardener deserved a medal; as does the manager and chef, Thomas for his excellent cooking. His evening cookery class was great fun. The room was very nice, and quite spacious, but the bathroom was a bit tired. However, they are going through a refurbishment and Thomas... More

We drove from the Backwaters towards Munnar and the tea plantations at slow speed. But however slow our adjustment, nothing could prepare us for the friendliness, greenness, cleanliness or the hilliness of this stunning part of Kerala. Francis seems to have all the time in the world to spend just with you, nobody is more important. We stayed at Adam... More

Comfortable hotel that provided a good base to explore the local countryside. We stayed with our two children whilst on our tour if Kerala. We had two rooms in what looked like yo be the original bungalow. Food was the highlight - excellent local style dishes -served in the terrace.

Very friendly staff at this lodge a few km outside Munnar. They provide walks with explanation about tea, coffee plants, cardamon and other spices, and cooking classes every evening. Food is fine, you can even order a bottle of Indian wine! Clean rooms with very nice views.

Olivebrook is a fantastic place to stay. Lovely grounds and spectacular local scenery. In the middle of tea plantation. The food was excellent food and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are in beautiful condition and the whole place is spotlessly clean.

A small hotel with top service, nice clean rooms and large bathroom to enjoy after a long trip. A garden full of colorful flowers, only a bit away from the center of Munnar. They also organized a round trip around the city and surroundings at a reasonable price, where we had the opportunity to see and take pictures of wild... More

Stayed here in early December. Great helpful staff. Wide range of good food. Don't miss Thomas' cookery demos in the evening and the guided walk around the plantations. Staff organised our transfer to Cochi airport. It is high so can be chilly in the evening in Dec.

If you want to be in the tea and spice plantations and up in the clouds then Olive Brook delivers. Its a lovely place to unwind with gentle and thoughtful staff who will go out of their way to make your stay even better. A great cookery demo each evening led by Thomas, who has a great sense of theatre... More
