“Can do better”
Reviewed 2 November 2012

We reached Thekkady on October 28, 2012, and were given a deluxe room as per the package. Check-in was quite fast but had to ask for assistance to reach our room as the ladies at the reception just handed us the keys and got busy with other foreign guests. The room was good but the lighting was very dim. Though it gave a good ambience, ladies might find it difficult in front of the mirror to do make-up. When we wanted to order for lunch in the room, they said that room service is only available for tea/coffee and we need to be in the restaurant for lunch or dinner. The restaurant service can be improved to be a bit faster. The hotel is located close to the elephant safari where you can bargain for a good deal for the safari, and you can take a walk in the market area.

we stayed on 22nd october, when we entered the room in the evening there was some buzzing loud sound , we asked about it , the room boy said that is the kitchen exhaust fan..which will be stopped very soon.we went out and came back at 8:00 pm and the sound is still on, we spoke to the manager and he said it will be off by 9:30.we asked him to change the room,but he said the full hotel is booked we went for dinner and came after 9:30 and then went to sleep, again the sound started at 6:00 and wake me up , i rang the manager and now the lady (morning shift) told me she is not aware of this sound ,told me wait untill she finds out.she thinks she is innocent or clever but she is a fool , not to be aware of the hotel.the food is not up the mark and costly,its a horrible experience , never never step in to the hotel

This hotel is conveniently located and offers brilliant value for money. We stayed a couple of nights and were very happy with the overall experience at the hotel - quality of the rooms, cleanliness, friendly service and food. Although the breakfast was average, when we did order dinner room service, we loved the food. Rooms are spacious, staff are helpful and courteous, the hotel is walking distance from the town centre and they also offer free wifi in the lobby. Would definitely recommend for its overall value proposition.

We 3 senior Couples stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in 3 a/c rooms with breakfast. This is a great value hotel with clean & amazing service. One of the rooms were provided with an attached balcony which was nice .
I left my Handy cam in the room and checked out, but the hotel staff informed me about the lapse, when we were 40 km away towards Kumarakom. On our request they took all the trouble to hand over the camera to a fellow Car driver who was luckily coming on our way & gave it to me.
I am grateful to the honesty, sincerity & excellent service to the Hotel Staff.

For the price I think that this hotel should actually be a 4 star, rather than a 3 star. The rooms were huge, the bed very comfy indeed, the bathroom spotless. The staff were so friendly too and spoke very good english indeed. The restaurant was great too, amazing service, huge food portions, all in all excellent value!!!

The rooms are clean,big, they had roll over beds, helpful staff, good location, comfortable bed, and i do not have anything negative to say about this property. The staff warned us not to open the balcony door and as advised, we had 'visitors' families of monkeys which entertained us, it was fun watching them from closed doors.The property is close to all the attractions, and many souvenir shops and restaurants. The breakfast spread was ok. When requested the front desk allowed us an extended check-out which is appreciated very much. Keep up the good work
