The Meadow View Inn is a lovely little place set apart from the road which runs down to the Periyar wildlife sanctuary entrance from the main town. The main attraction must be the unique view over the fields - we saw more animal life from our sweet balcony window than the boat in the park itself. The rooms are pretty good and certainly not bland - we had a peaceful night's rest. The main accommodation is in a tasteful small sort of pagoda like tower - the views getting better as you get higher. There are also rooms at the side, and good access to the internet. The breakfast provided was just right and for other meals there are options nearby on the road amongst the shops which were recommended. The owner Satish and his family were very welcoming to what is their home as well - they have made a wonderful courtyard garden with plenty of greenery, flowers and shade. Rates are very reasonable.
There are various activities on offer nearby. Do save some time to visit the elephants in Periyar, unless you have real problems with creatures and animals that are lovingly looked after and regularly scrubbed and bathed.More
