We stayed 3 nights at JJ Cottage for our first visit in Munnar.
JJ Cottage is located in old Munnar. About 10minute from JJ Cottage is a small tea plantation with good walking trails and on the same area is Royal Retreat hotel which serves good curries. It is a good base to explore tourist attractions such as: Tata Tea Museum (2k away), Eravikulam National Park (15km) and Top Station (30km).
100 meters from JJ Cottage are two Internet cafe's and a few stores.
We stayed in one of the double rooms and it was clean.
We had our own, clean/well-maintained bathroom with very good hot water (very important in the cold weather of Munnar). Quiet room. All these essential features for a cheap rate.
In a nearby hotel, we had a look at one of their double rooms. The room was very large with big bed, nice furnishings etc however the bathroom was moldy and dirty. The room rate was nearly 4x more than what JJ Cottage was charging for their basic but significantly Much Cleaner room.
STAFF & GENERAL SERVICE:
The best thing about JJ Cottage is the very kind and personal service of the owners and more specifically, Eric. From enquiry, to booking until the day we checked out, Eric was extremely helpful. Eric organized a taxi for us to be pick up from Fort Cochin to Munnar. When we arrived at JJ Cottage, Eric made it very easy for us to organize transport and
tours. For our daily tours, Eric recommended a driver named Kuthi and he was superb! Safe driver and knowledgeable guide at the same time (which we were not expecting because we initially thought that Kuthi would only look after our transportation).
Eric is the perfect host and we had an enjoyable time in Munnar because he helped us a lot. We highly recommend staying at JJ Cottage.
