I had spent two nights at the Olive Brook and had planned to spend a third night in Thekkady. Unfortunately, the boat rides were cancelled at Thekkady’s Periyar Park because of the recent mishap so we decided to spend a third night in Munnar instead. The Olive Brook did not have a room available for me the third night so it was arrange for me to stay at the Shamrock instead just a 5-10 minute walk away.
There is no doubt that you cannot beat the dinners cooked up at the Olive Brook (they also have daily cooking demo) and the entire guest dining has its charm, but you cannot beat the spaciousness and the extraordinary view at the Shamrock and the hosts are very accommodating. As mentioned in other comments, the Shamrock does stand on the edge of a small, poor, and friendly village. The rooms are arranged on a slope which gives an unsurpassed view over a valley. Some of the best pictures of my trip to Munnar came from my balcony at the Shamrock.
This was really a nice quiet outing.More
