“Impolite behavior and rules of Periyar Meadows for guests”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

I chose Periyar Meadows over Micheal's Inn reading the reviews here, but right after my travel last week, I regret. It was the rooms and view for which I selected but there were couple of things I did not like about this hotel which will never make me go into that hotel again:

- While checking out, the room service boy frisks the hotel and comes to reception to say that there are some lipstick stains sorta color in the towel. They made us stand at the reception to check if the strains go or not (God knows if their detergents are made up of acid) and if they dint go, then we have to pay for the towels!! This was downright cheap! I have never ever seen any hotel doing this...I believe a towel is for wiping and not keeping it in tact on bed or washroom. After they checked and cleared out bills, the front office guy did not have the courtesy to inform us that the check is over and we could leave!

My advise would be to avoid such a hotel which lacks in basics of hospitality.

Average Hotel.
I had been with my wife in this hotel . Room are spacious with good balcony .but Breakfast & Buffet Dinner not worth. Prices charged are 350 Rs which was not at all worth . Communication of Staff not so good , and not even able to give us advice properly. Room Service is good and location is Ok. In the Room we ordered some items to eat which we thought was a major blender and not so good.

It was a great experience at this hotel. Everything was perfect from room, bathroom, lobby, foyer to dining room.

Dinner and breakfast menu were awesome. Just perfect hotel.

Hotel location was also great.

Highlights:
The hotel location was very good near to the market as well as Periyar tiger reserve.
The rooms were large and clean with a pvt terrace and a beautiful Scenic View.
Staff was nice and co operative.

downsides:
The washroom was not as clean and good as the room.
The buffet lunch and dinner didn't have much option when compared to the price.

We stayed 3 nights as part of our package.
The rooms are large and bright (we had an end room so windows on two sides, one overlooking the "meadow"), with a very large and comfortable bed, sofa and table for relaxing, fridge which worked after some fixing from maintenance person, and adequate bathroom. There's also a small balcony. We had issues with the hot water on the first day (none) which was annoying as I had come back covered in oil from an ayurvedic massage, but this was resolved the next day.

WiFi is not available in the rooms which is a disappointment in a hotel like this. To get online you need to register at the front desk and get a password "for security" (?). This expires every day and needs to be reactivated. There are comfy sofas in reception where you can sit in WiFi range to check your email etc. on your own device.

Food is buffet style and good, the non-veg option is the poor relation hidden on the far side of the entrance door and easy to miss. We asked for bed tea at 0600 one morning as we had booked an early morning nature walk in Periyar, but this service does not start till 0630, perhaps a policy that should be reconsidered as many customers must do the same every week.

The hotel is within easy walking distance of the Elephant stables and the Kathakali (dance) and Kadathanadan Kalari (martial arts) centres.
