I was recommended to stay here by a friend and am glad I took the advice. My room is spacious and clean, with a huge, comfortable bed and a private bathroom. There's only a small seating area to meet people and to get out of your room - that is my only issue, that there isn't a real "communal area".... More

This is an excellent place to stay in Munnar. I had a small double room (I was travelling alone), which was spotlessly clean, had a comfortable bed, hot water, TV with foreign channels and a delicious breakfast (though I can't remember if it was included or not). The rate is incredibly reasonable. What made the place even better was staff... More

Tucked away just off the Munnar-Kochi Road, the hotel is in a quiet corner of the old town. With views across the Munnar Stadium to the tea slopes beyond, the Hotel is 2 minutes walk from the KSRTC bus depot, easy access if traveling to or from the coast by bus. Eric, the owner, is very helpful and very keen... More

Location: Good location, it's very close to Munnar centre  (a rickshaw takes you there for 30 rs), also very close to the beautiful Munnar mountains and lastly, close to a bus station with busses to Kochin. Room: We had a big family room, with a huge bed. The bed was soft, the water in the shower is hot and it... More

We stayed in this hotel for about a week and we loved it. The rooms were super clean, nicely decorated and we felt very comfortable. For 500 Rupees it was a wonderful room, absolutely recommendable. The owner was always around and answered all our questions. He is such a kind person, he always makes sure that you feel comfortable and... More

I scheduled 3 nights in Munnar and finally I stayed totally a week here. Apart from the beauty of Munnar, a good accomodation is a big plus. JJ Cottage is located at old Munnar near KSRTC bus stop, this area is much better than Munnar town, much more quiet and not so chaotic. The room is just so good, with... More

Old Munnar is much calmer than Munnar town. It is 30 rupees to get here from the town. The room was clean, there was hot water which was quite pleasant in the rainy season. Regular power cuts were a little disadvantage but it is probably normal in rainy season because of the wind.

Warm welcome! Hot water and wifi! Clean rooms and very friendly welcome. Our guide Velu is really a nice guy. Thanks to him we discovered the tea plantations with detailed explanations on how the locals live. Velu brought us also to the spice garden. A nice experience!

The man who runs this place, Eric is the nicest and friendliest man! Shame about the many cockroaches in the rooms (Like most Indian hotels). Eric was on hand to give suggestions for restaurants and you can organise trips into the tea plantations through him. Definitely take this 6/7 hour trek- special experience!
