Staff friendly and helpful. You can book a trek with Sri through the hotel which we recommend. He has more than 12 years experience behind him and now...

I felt like home there! The owner and his family are very helpful and caring. You get good informations for activitys in Munnar. They have two cute cats and i was allowed to cuddle them. It was nice to have a TV in the room and hot water for showering.

Fantastic place, we got a super cute penthouse on the top floor. The manager is very friendly and helpful. Nice quiet area but only a short tuktuk trip from town. Also did the trekking with Sri which was awesome. Highly recommend!

The room was clean. Very helpful staff. Great location. I also took the amazing full day trekking tour and Sri is the nicest guide you can wish for. The breakfast and lunch cooked by his wife was also good.

Hotel owner was really nice when we first arrived. Room was clean and we couldn't complain about anything. Great location. We organised a trek with JJ cottage and it was the best experience of Munnar. We couldn't recommend it enough! It was with Munnar Trekking Adventure.
