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....

Do not stay at this place. First of all, this place is over 40 kilometers away from Munnar. It is in the jungle, which is inaccessible at night after 6 p.m. Second, the owner is blatantly rude, disrespectful, and lawless. He stole our money. My friend first booked and had to cancel under the 100% cancellation policy. Though he said...

I have just spent five nights at JJ Cottage. Thank you to Eric who went out of his way to make my stay safe and comfortable. A big thank you as well to Samy, one of the hotel's guide who led an amazing tea plantation trek/tour. We left at 7:00 am, returned at 1:00 pm, and we learned so much....

We moved to JJ cottage from another property in Munnar after reading reviews in Lonely Planet and Trip advisor. The room was large, comfortable and well equipped. We were slightly disappointed that the staff were not as welcoming and helpful as we'd been led to expect (the curse of very good trip advisor reviews?!), such as not helping us to...

We spent a few days at JJ Cottage and really enjoyed it. The rooms are clean, the price is great and the location is really good, away from the noisy main town.

What a lovely little gem this place is! Eric is a wonderful kind and friendly host, the rooms are clean and comfortable and very good price. Eric has lots of useful information and helped us book a trek and a tour and arranged buses and taxis. Great location, only 30 rupees to the main town centre. Highly recommend.
