This is one off the nicest place I have ever stayed in India (This is my trip no. 15.) Everything was just perfect. I had book the top room, if possible, and Eric had kept it to me. Beautiful big room with sitting room area and a wonderful look to the tea plantation. To big single beds with supper madras....

I called a few days ahead as all the emails I saw online bounced back. Eric on the phone was very pleasant. It continued on a positive note when our public bus pulled into the bus station over an hour late and a total stranger hailed us though the window directly by name and said that he was here to...

There is one thing about JJ Cottage above others: the host Eric. This smiling, helpful guy really makes you feel welcome. JJ Cottage has nice rooms with comfy mattresses and it's located near beautiful tea plantations a bit outside the town centre. The layout of the guesthouse makes it easy to get to know other travellers. There is still a...

A group of us rocked up to JJ Cottage on the morning of Christmas Eve and were able to stay for 2 nights and I am so glad that there were availabilities because it has been one of the best places I have stayed during my time in India. The rooms were clean, colourful and spacious. The beds were soft...

I stayed at Jjs for two night and it was amazing. Eric saved us as we had no where else to stay he organised a room at another hotel then we stayed with him for two night. It was incredible! He organising hikes to do and places to see which were all unforgettable experiences. Will be coming back!

We stayed for 3 nights at JJ's and loved it. Eric is an absolutely amazing host- always available and able to arrange any trips / drivers/ anything basically at very short notice. The guesthouse was full when we were there yet he seems to be able to remember what everyone wants to do and when- amazing! You never feel like...

Stayed here for 3 nights and I am really glad I did. It's located right beside the bus station on the edge of town. Rooms are clean with hot water. The best thing is definitely the manager Eric. He is super helpful on the best places to eat in town, bus times and can also arrange tours, trekking etc. Recommended.

I was in Munnar with my boyfriend and we had a great stay at JJ cottage! The rooms are really comfortable, quiet and we had shower with warm water! The place is quiet and we had a wonderful view of the tea plantations. The people who runs the place are really nice and helpful.

JJ Cottage was one of the first B&B's in Munnar. The views are rather spoiled now,due to development, but the welcome is second to none. Eric and his sister and family are simply, utterly, lovely. Coffee in the little vestibule, hot water and very clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. Dinar the driver Eric recommended is a teapicker, rickshaw driver and...

Stayed in the brilliant, comfortable, spacious penthouse in this great guesthouse. It has lovely views and impeccable facilities. The owner was as friendly and helpful as can be. I would certainly stay here again if I were to return to Munnar.
