this hotel has a relationship wih the Olive Brook - it is a very poor substitute and not a good value for the cost ($3000 Rs, dinner included). Our room had tons of ants, dirty walls, floor, furnature etc. - more like a place you'd pay 600-1000 Rs....

Had a great two night stay at Shamrock with my girlfriend. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. Couldn't fault the service. Very quick. Breakfast and dinners were of a good standard in terms of quality and quantity. Rooms were fine, clean and well presented. The staff went out of their way to go into town to buy booze for... More

Really nice food, excellent view over the mountains and teaplantations, very enthusiastic staff (just not the day after New Years eve - but who's that ;-)) Rooms are big and with a panorama view - not too good, but the food and everything else compensates for that.

You don't want to sit in your room all day do you? We stayed at Shamrock one night while we did a bit of trekking in the hills there. It was great. The rooms were nice and clean, we got a great night's sleep, the food was good (and plentiful!) and the staff were happy to help with anything you... More

Shamrock doesn't look like much when you arrive and indeed, it doesn't have many frills, but this just doesn't matter as the rooms are clean, the view is spectacular from the room's balcony and the service from the small team of staff is friendly and committed. We felt so welcomed from the minute we arrived - we joined a small... More

I think this is the only time I have stayed so far out of town, and loved it. Munnar's town centre is a bit of a hole (but great to visit, especially the market), so to come up this beautiful valley and perch at Shamrock is a great thing to do. We had some lovely walks in both directions from... More

1. Two words: GREAT FOOD. :) Dinner and breakfast was included in our tariff and that is truly a godsend. Some of the best food we tasted in South India, and it was a nice change to dine in the privacy of our room. 2. Large clean room and good bathroom. No complaints there, even though the construction is not... More

I had spent two nights at the Olive Brook and had planned to spend a third night in Thekkady. Unfortunately, the boat rides were cancelled at Thekkady’s Periyar Park because of the recent mishap so we decided to spend a third night in Munnar instead. The Olive Brook did not have a room available for me the third night so... More
