This beautiful hotel is set within the tea hills of Munnar with beautiful views of the surrounding area. At first I was disappointed to see that it was not closer to the town of Munnar, but after later 'exploring' the town, I realized I wasn't missing anything and was glad to have the tranquility and views that Olive Brook have...

This comfortable, quiet homestay has a beautiful setting with great mountain views and a nice garden. Friendly and efficient staff. Very comfortable, clean rooms with generous sit out areas. My friends and I stayed for two nights - the next time I want to stay longer. Janne

The staff arevery very rude, not at all co operative, they were like " stay if you want or leave", musquito infested room, no light back up during power failure,, not provided even basics like hot water for bathing etc, very bad experience, no family team planning to go here should make it,, Avoid it.

We really enjoyed our stay at Olive Brook. We'd have given it a 5 rating except for a few minor suggestions below. Rooms (Adam cottages) were spacious and had both indoor and outdoor and outdoor sitting areas. Its location – some 6km outside Munnar among the hillside tea plantations was great. Tea on the patio as the sun went down... More

The manager Thomas is the star of the show, offering fantastic service and working like a Trojan. The setting of this homestay is it's main selIing point, on the edge of the rainforest overlooking the tea gardens that the area is famous for. The food is wonderful and amazingly good value. But I was disappointed with our room, as it... More

First the good points, the situation, the garden and the food are good. The rooms/ bathroom are tired and could to with some care. My main concern was the bedding, as previously stated in a review the sheets were stained and had holes in them. The towels were far from white and very hard.

I stayed at Olive Brook in Novemember 2014, and the first thing that struck me was how well maintained the property was. This property is a homestay and therefore has a limited number of rooms, but it is bang in the middle of sprawling spice/tea plantations and overlooks a beautiful valley. It provides the perfect setting for an early morning/evening... More
