“Cosy rooms and wholesome food”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

We reached the place around noon on a warm day so the welcome drink-watermelon juice was refreshing.Our room was on the second floor-adequately sized with a balcony providing a pleasant view of outside greenery.As this was the third hotel in our tour package,comparisons with the previous two were along expected lines.A place has to be judged against its background and as long as one feels at home there is not much to complain.We ate a simple lunch in the downstairs restaurant before proceeding for the Periyar cruise.Back at Thekkady we saw the Kathakali and Kalari shows and walked back,having plantain bhaji on the way.A cursory glance at the handicraft shops dotting the marketplace told us these were all outsiders settled here to cash in on the tourist traffic.The dinner buffet served was very tasty,especially the fish.Undoubtedly the best on our short tour.There were many cable tv channels but the stream was not very consistent.A good night's sleep followed by morning tea served in the room and last but not the least a well selected breakfast buffet.This was the only place we got oats porridge-a nice surprise.Overall the place made us feel good and the staff is courteous.What more can you ask for?

The hotel is situated quite close to Thekkady town.The rooms are decent and clean. The breakfast was good. But the buffet dinner was especially nice and a good value for money.
There is a activity area where kids can enjoy table tennis, carrom etc. There are monkeys around so pleas be careful while opening doors and windows.

Is a typical hotel in Thekkady. The rooms are large and comfortable (very small TV). The view from the rooms was not good since it was facing a gutter. The buffet was rather exorbitant for the price. Service was average. Beware of the elephant ride near the hotel. They charge more than the government price fixed for the same.

Room Tip: Insist for a room which is not facing for the gutter

Everything right from the reception to the room to the restaurant, food were good.......The room was very big with good lighting and airy.....The beds, linen were clean and the ambiance was comfortable. The bathroom was clean and had a decent shower. Per our package, we were provided with complementary breakfast and it had a great choice of food - Staff were friendly. Dinner was served promptly in the room, but was a bit expensive, but no regrets...

I booked this hotel in a tour package, so I don't know what price was paid for it exactly, but since I had a good and comfortable stay, I assume that it was value for money and I would recommend it for people visiting Tekkaddy...You will surely have a good experience.

We stayed at Periyar Meadows in Feb'13 with family. We were referred here by a good friend. The hotel has good amenities, large, spacious rooms. Hotel was extremely clean. We were given a warm welcome by the hotel.

Service is average. Food at the restaurant buffet is average and a little below my expectations. Convenient location (very close to the local market and wildlife reserve) but insulated from the cacaphony of the marketplace and taxis.

The hotel did not organize any activities on their own but we were well-serviced by the local tour operators. The hotel price was relatively expensive for the quality of services offered.

Located very near to Periyar Tiger Reserve n local market yet secluded from the noise of market.

Room was very specious and with beautiful interior. V had a wow feeling wen v entered the room filled with green light entering frm the green curtains. View from the window n balcony was just awesome. I woke up very early in the morning the next day just to have the morning view. It was beautiful. Bathroom was good too but dint had bathtub.

Room service n Food at the restaurant was superb.
Overall - Great experience.

We spent couple of nights at this place, by the look outside you may expect some posh interiors and classy furniture inside. But that is not the case. The place is quite tidy and clean but looks like a youth hostel in the verandah. The room are quite large, bathrooms are ok-ok. The restaurant is pleasant surprise, they always have freshly prepared menu for breakfast and lunch. Location wise this place is quite reachable from the sanctuary and other attractions. I had a weird incident of bathroom door getting locked for which the guy from helpdesk took 3 hours in early morning and finally decided to break the lock. Definitely this isn’t to be considered, but thought to add what I went through.
