We had read a lot of reviews about Shamrock prior to going to Munnar. We were very happy with the choice we made. There is no restaurant in the hotel, but all meals are served to your room. The food was excellent, and the room service was really lovely. Also, as people will realise in Kerela, it is very difficult just to get a beer due to licensing laws, however our hosts had a steady supply of KingFisher.
They are partnered with the Olive Brook which is just up the road, and when we went to use the internet facililities the location was much nicer in that the immediate view is just mountains and trees.
The view from the rooms in the shamrock, is over a local area - refered to in some reviews as a slum. This is India, and there are many poorer areas whereever you go. Although the views are not as picturesque as you would think in Munnar, it did not disturb our stay in Munnar. It was actually quite nice to hear the local community going about their daily lives.
When going to Munnar there is no town centre, there is no night life and the only restaurants are in the hotels. During the day there are nice walks in the tea plantations, and our hosts in the Shamrock provided us with an excellent guide.More
