Rose Gardens homestay is situated about 10km out of scruffy little Munnar and is a generally nice place to spend a day or two. The rooms are large and clean and the bathrooms are too. Rajee's cooking (breakfast, dinner) is generally very good and Tomy is an attentive host. My experience was, however, marred by a couple of things. First, there was never any hot water, which is unacceptable for a place that charges INR 3500 a night. Citing that the homestay is "eco-friendly" simply does not cut it. Second, there was constant noise from the workers on site who were building a cabinet or some such thing. 8 hours of hammering was just unbearable. This too is unacceptable for a place that charges such an amount. Finally, I was really put off my the backhand way in which we were charged for the beer that was offered to us during dinner. Meals are included in the cost, but there was no mention that the drinks we were offered during dinner were not included. This is, to be sure, a fairly minor complaint, but to learn of these extra unmentioned charges while settling the bill was, in my opinion, sneaky.
