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.

From our first phone call with Eric to reserve a room everything was wonderful. He held a room for us, arranged a trek and a tour for us and was always helpful and friendly. When we first walked in we were struck by the rich, warm woodwork of JJ's. Our room was perfect, especially the hot shower (at Munnar's elevation...

We immediately loved JJ cottage, that is a guesthouse but feels almost like a homestay. The double room was spacious and bright, the bathroom (attached) sparking clean and we could take hot showers without restrictions (no bucket, real shower!). Breakfast is not included but for only 150 rupies more we got soooo much food and fresh fruit that we could...

We were lucky enough to get the pad on the top floor which has an attached sitting room. It was super comfortable and very clean, plus has awesome decor! The guesthouse is located just out of the busiest part of Munnar, but still within easy walking/rickshaw distance. Eric was very warm and incredibly helpful even amongst the busiest of times....
