“It is not a guest house. It is more than a Resort.”
Reviewed May 3, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We went in a group of five. Let me straight away describe my experience:
1. We had booked for 4 but they allowed 5 people to stay without any hassle (unlike other guest houses)
2. It is situated in an ideal location. Not far from the town and not too close. You can enjoy the scenery from the guest house. You can just drive down to get anything you need
3. As I mentioned, it is almost like a resort. They provide all necessary items, the rooms are very clean and well built with TV, wifi etc.
4. They will get good food for you without any extra cost (you have to pay for the food though). Breakfast is on the house. Plus they even provided breakfast at 12 on one day. I liked that.

They really wanted us to have a nice time. And I believe they have done a tremendous job. They give you freedom to do things at your timing and do not crib about it which is important when you are on a holiday.

I hope you remain the same way Crayons :)

Thanks for the experience.

“Lot more than I could bargain”
Reviewed April 9, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This place was a really huge piece of the fun and excitement I had with my friends whom I met after really long.

The place was a really good get away from the noisy road.
The rooms were spacious with class being the most obvious element in it.
The bathrooms were very clean.
A special mention for the staff.. always greeting you with an inviting smile provided awesome service.
The breakfast is something that I wouldn't forget it's taste for a really long time. The aaloo parathas and poori were really tasty..so tasty that my punjabi friend ended up saying that he didnt miss his Punjab in Kerala !!

“Amazing Experience”
Reviewed March 12, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

I have stayed in a lot of places in Munnar over the years but Crayons really stands apart. First and foremost is their awesome staff who were really helpful.I was travelling with my baby and they have supported us really well. They have an amazing collection of indoor and outdoor games which makes for a good family fun time.The room and the toilet were exceptionally clean and tidy.For the money they are charging its a steal and the experience is not short of any luxury hotel. Kudos to the team!!!

“A perfect little gem”
Reviewed February 15, 2017 for a stay in February 2017
1
person found this review helpful

Crayons is a brand new guest house, in a quiet, peaceful location, outside of the bustle of Munnar. Don't be misled by the semi-derelict house at the road by the Crayons sign - Crayons is further down the driveway, in beautiful grounds. All you can hear is birdsong. It is spotlessly clean, with well-furnished rooms, comfortable beds, and lovely bathrooms. The rooms are arranged in pairs, with a dining room shared between each pair, although no-one was occupying the other room in our pair. The people running it are lovely - polite, helpful, and anxious to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. When I pointed out a leak under the sink, it was fixed immediately. Food was beautiful, freshly prepared for us, after a discussion on what we wanted, and exactly how we wanted it. They even filled the dining room with candles on our last night. Highly recommended!

“Relaxing Stay”
Reviewed February 14, 2017 for a stay in February 2017
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed here with family in the first week of February 2017. The hotel is new and it was recommended to me by a friend who stayed there before. Firstly, I was surprised by the quality of the rooms and the kind of service I received there. It was way beyond what I expected of a rather small and new establishment.

Pros:
1. Well furnished and neat rooms; special mention to bathrooms which are super clean and modern. The common areas are also clean and well maintained.
2. Family friendly - all the other inhabitants during my stay were families/couples.
3. Staff are courteous and immediately respond to our needs.
4. Good offering of indoor and outdoor games and good wifi connectivity.
5. Tasty and homely food.
6. Silent, private and vey relaxing atmosphere surrounded by thick greenery.

Cons:
1. The sign board kept at the turning to the resort road is small and can be easily missed (I missed it!).

Advise to future travellers - location of the property given in google maps is accurate - use it or you might miss the turning and it will be difficult to make a u-turn in the winding roads of Munnar.
