From our first phone call with Eric to reserve a room everything was wonderful. He held a room for us, arranged a trek and a tour for us and was always helpful and friendly. When we first walked in we were struck by the rich, warm woodwork of JJ's. Our room was perfect, especially the hot shower (at Munnar's elevation...

We immediately loved JJ cottage, that is a guesthouse but feels almost like a homestay. The double room was spacious and bright, the bathroom (attached) sparking clean and we could take hot showers without restrictions (no bucket, real shower!). Breakfast is not included but for only 150 rupies more we got soooo much food and fresh fruit that we could...

We were lucky enough to get the pad on the top floor which has an attached sitting room. It was super comfortable and very clean, plus has awesome decor! The guesthouse is located just out of the busiest part of Munnar, but still within easy walking/rickshaw distance. Eric was very warm and incredibly helpful even amongst the busiest of times....

Do not stay at this place. First of all, this place is over 40 kilometers away from Munnar. It is in the jungle, which is inaccessible at night after 6 p.m. Second, the owner is blatantly rude, disrespectful, and lawless. He stole our money. My friend first booked and had to cancel under the 100% cancellation policy. Though he said...

We moved to JJ cottage from another property in Munnar after reading reviews in Lonely Planet and Trip advisor. The room was large, comfortable and well equipped. We were slightly disappointed that the staff were not as welcoming and helpful as we'd been led to expect (the curse of very good trip advisor reviews?!), such as not helping us to...
