“hospitality of the staff : marvellous”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

I was there in july 2012 and stayed there for a few days enjoying the serene environment there. The most striking aspect for which i have rated it 5 star is the hospitality provided by Mr. Vishnu. The cordial and soft behaviour on his part and the understanding of our needs had been outstanding. I would say that the stay had been excellent and all credit goes to Mr. Vishnu. One incident which I must describe- i gave my driving license to Vishnu and forgot to collect. On reaching Jaipur I found out this and then Mr. Vishnu posted it to my address out of his own pocket. Thank you Vishnu for all your humanly behaviour to a stranger.

Room Tip: tell your every need to Mr. Vishnu in advance and consult him for local trips, he would arrange ever...

An awesome place if peace and trnquility is your priority.Far away from the hustle bustle in a serene location on a small hill surrounded by trees giving you a great view is the well maintained olive brook. The short walk down the road the arrange takes us into another world. The cooking class also interests food lovers. The food provided can refresh your taste buds and satiate your apetite.The hospitality and brilliant smile offered by shaju will be remembered quite a long while even after you leave. In short a good stay to lay back..leave your tensions and relax..

Olive Brook is approx 6-8km out of Munnar, a lovely drive and it was great to see the locals picking and bagging the tea. Pretty gardens surround the house and the staff are very welcoming. The dinner served on the verandah was delicious, however the room was quite basic and I found the shower a challenge to use hot one moment then freezing cold the next.

We stayed one night in Olive Brook last week end. The staff was very helpful and kind. Rooms are spacious and clean. The dinner, taken outside on the terrace was very tasty. We particularly apreciated the atmosphere in the morning, with birds singing and mist coming up from the valley. Nice trecks from the Olive Brook, to cardamom and tea plantations.

The staff is amazing, very personal and very accommodating. The only problem was that rooms are in very bad condition. They are wet and damp and the smell of fungus on the walls did not let us sleep at night. I was told that they intend to renovate

We felt as if we were on top of the world when we arrived from Fort Cochin, a long climb into the cool.It felt like an oasis of wonderful colour in the garden and a quiet cool retreat.The welcome from our host , Vishu, was wonderful. we had spacious rooms overlooking a valley of tea plantations. He took us on a two hour walk, earning our dinner, preceded by a very good cooking demonstration before dinner. The meals were outstanding, prepared by a qulalified chef. it is a pity there wasn't a recipe to take home. We did not feel the need to venture further having spent a lot of time in a car over the previous few days. I recommend this as a place to stay for at least two nights. A well earned Tripadvsir winner for 2012.
