Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 2, 2012

This hotel is clean with nice rooms and friendly staff! Was so nice to stay here after the hustle of Kochin. Really felt relaxed and cosy in the room. A friend also had a room there but wanted to go to a more expensive place for 1 night as a treat to herself - in the end, she wished she had stayed at J.J.s as it was much nicer!! I will stay here again if I go to Munnar.

Just we came back from our Munnar trip. JJ cottage is a very clean & neat place. We stayed in top room @ Rs. 800/-. There was 24 hour hot water in a neat & clean bathroom, a huge bed, TV with a couple of English language channels. The view from the room is some big Eucalyptus trees, KSRTC bus stand, tea gardens on top of mountain. The place is located in Old Munnar, and you can walk to several restaurants near by. The family were nice and friendly. The price may not high compared to the size of the room and views. They serve coffee or tea only. They gave one Mahindra Verito car driver number Mr. Johnson( +919846852336), who is a sincere and safe driver in ghat roads. We engaged him for our 4 days trip.

JJ cottage is so far one of the cleanest places I have stayed in in India. There was 24 hour hot water in a sparklingly clean bathroom, a huge bed, TV with a couple of English language channels, clean nice rug. The view wasnt anything special, just onto another building. The place is located in Old Munnar, and you can walk to several restaurants. The family were nice and friendly, and the boy working there, Vijay I think his name was, is friendly and efficient. The price was at the higher end of the budget hotels and you can find cheaper places to stay but maybe the rooms arent as clean or comfortable as this place.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a nice view.

J.J. Cottage was such a beautiful experience and stay. The family that runs the accommodation make you feel right at home and are so helpful. The price is so cheap and you get so much for what you pay for, nice spacious clean room with tv and the hottest water that I have experienced in India, it reminded me just of home. It was piping hot. I was sick for the first 2 nights of arriving in Munnar and the family didnt everything they could to make sure I was comfortable, tell my wife where the best pharmacy was, buy offering their kitchen to cook toast and make tea. Anything that was asked for was always delivered with a friendly smile and they were generally concerned about me. Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality and everything that you did for me. I'll be sure to recommend J.J cottage to everyone I met and cant wait to visit them again.

JJ Cottage was a great place to stay, in fact we were so comfy we stayed 8 days. We had the top room which was larger than the others and had a great view, sill a great price. Very warm and cosy beds, wonderful hot water, and quiet yet with interesting day to day activity in the street below. Very warm and helpful owners. Ask about the Bison Valley Road walk, it is great!

I stayed two nights in November 2011, my room was clean comfortable and had that rarest of luxuries in India endless hot water. The property is a basic budget venue but very comfortable, situated conveniently close to the bus station. The owners are helpful and obliging and the hotel is a comfortable and very economic base for touring the area. Accomodation is expensive in Munnar and JJs is incredible value for money.
