The cottage is really nice, especially the view you got from the terrace and the rooftop. The restaurant brings the food directly to the cottage so you can dine on the terrace/rooftop while enjoying the breathtaking view. The food was good and the prices reasonable.
The rooms where very clean and everything you need was provided. Prakash was extremely helpful and responded to every request within minutes.
Also very good is that you have a washing machine in the cottage!
The only thing I was annoyed of was that I had to pay for the breakfast even it was originally included. But apparently as I got a special rate on the cottage it was extra. However, I should mention that when I was heavily ill, Prakash was there in a minute and brought me to a doctor without accepting any money for this help (neither did the doctor).
I definitely recommend going there. Prepare yourself and find out about the trekking paths in Munnar as the typical tourist sights are not worth seeing but rather the stunning nature and the beautiful tea plantations.
