“Great Place to spend holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

We stayed for 2 nights and 3 days during end of April. This is one amazing place to stay. Rooms are very neat and comfy.
Staffs are very kind and caring, especially JiJo, very nice experience.
Will definitely suggest for our next trip as well.

Room Tip: The newly added Adam cottages are very good.

“Embodying the veritable essence of the acclaimed traditional Kerala hospitality, . . . OliveBrook pays meticulous attention to the minutest details to ensure your stay is a perfectly indelible one” (excerpt from brochure). Alas, it's not like that, and there are neither olives nor a brook. Let's just say that the setting is nice and OliveBrook is a decent inn that could be a lot better if management would address maintenance issues: broken bulbs, light circuits that "don't work" and a hot water supply that's lukewarm and barely trickles into the bathroom. Our room was clean and the bed comfortable. Coffee and tea were gratis. When it is on, the wi-fi signal is strong. The short "trek" is a walk down the road and back. Breakfast, included in the room charge, is above average and served al fresco. There is a well-tended English garden.

Very, very peaceful. Beautiful bird song. Beautiful colourful gardens. Excellent food. Excellent service. Tea-trek excellent and very interesting, especially good in the morning. Accommodation basic but spotlessly clean.

Room Tip: We had Eve cottage.

We have been using Olive Brook for our clients for a long time. And so I decided to go and see what it was like. I arrived at the homestay as sick as ever, with a fever, cold and stuffed up nose. The staff were very helpful and brought me some lemon and ginger tea. After a good rest, I woke and they brought me my dinner. They also recommended my entire schedule for the next day, so that I could make the most of my time.

The room was warm and inviting and very well done in furnishing. Just the right amount that you could say that it was from your bedroom at home.

The flowers were in full bloom when I was there and I even got to see my favourite flower - poinsetta.

The food is a little pricey, but then they use the ingredients from their own garden and make it fresh as per order. And I should add that it was very tasty.

Thanks to Manoj and Thomas for an excellent stay. Hope to send you more clients.

Room Tip: If you are 2 people then opt for the Adam cottage. If more than 2 then opt for the Eve or the Eden c...

We stayed at the Olive Brook for 3 nights after a long bus journey. We were greeted by cheerful staff and a cup of chai. There was a complimentary plantation walk with a guide, which was great, and cooking demonstrations every evening. The food was outstanding! The Manager was very helpful and organised our tuk tuk for the day to take us to all the local sights and checked on the bus times for us when we were due to leave. The service from the Manager and all the staff was wonderful throughout our stay. The property and its gardens are well landscaped and it was enjoyable to eat our meals on the porch of our cottage (near the reception) and look out. The wifi worked well on our porch too. Our room was spacious and clean.

Room Tip: Rooms next to the reception will get wifi.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Olive Brook . The Manager, Thomas, is extremely helpful and was excellent in assisting us to plan the rest of our journey. The hotel organised a lovely walk for us. The rooms were beautiful.
