“Poor service at restuarant”
Reviewed 9 November 2011

Recently had been to hotel Ambadi with my family for a holiday, it was a beautiful place to stay with wonderful surroundings and nice cottages but would have preferred buffet system for breakfast and dinner rather a la carte system,coz order placed takes more than half an hour to arrive which wastes the time of the tourist people serving at the restuarant also are not cheerful always tired which spoils the mood of the tourist

As we entered our room we were shocked to see rats running here n there, we asked them to change the room ,the staff were so rude ,no one even came to pick our luggage ,we had to carry it ourselves to a different room, ..but to our surprise there were few lizards on the ceiling... one lizard was so huge which i never saw in my entire life... we left the hotel immediately.... BEWARE ppl ..........stay away from this ****** place..not even worth 1 star!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We stayed in Ambadi on 8th Oct '11, in a delux room on the ground floor. the resort is beautiful, rooms are clean and spacious, parking area is available and is quite near to market as well as the national park. But the food in the restaurant is just okay.. and if you are a pure vegetarian then exploring other options is a better idea..

Room Tip: Do not prefer rooms on ground floor due to mosquitoes

i stayed there with my family on 8th october 2011. the whole body of this hotel is built with a mind blowing asthetic sense. the reception, restuarent & cotteges r designed with wood works. even sealings also made of wood work. rooms r spacious. due to cottege system room service was very slow. restuarent is good & having tasty recepies. i really thanQ the South Tourism agency for booking this hotel. MR Patil. GLB.

Room Tip: Rooms with bath tub r better to enjoy.

Got in with my family for 1 night stay and not able to sleep till 3 AM due to some "DRINK AND DIRT PARTY" next room (horrifying). After my complaint the night shift front desk guy told me that the party is of local goons and he will not able to tell them to stop this (Pathetic)
Rooms are good and with clean bathrooms.
Location is excellent near to the places you want to visit; walking distances form city and national park.
Don’t go for local martial art and kathakkali shows.
But there are many other options available at same or less price at Kumily/Thekkady.
Stay away from this hotel, not a good place for family stay.

Room Tip: Deluxe and Duplex are good

we stayed in Hotel Ambadi for one day while in Thekkady. The ambience is really very good. Wooden rooms are very big. Bathrooms are clean. There is no TV in cottage. For TV one has to book deluxe rooms. Their restaurent is very big and food is also good but expensive. The breakfast in not buffet type but they serve many items as per your choice.The service to cottage is good but staff do not understand English/Hindi properly. They serviced coffee instead of tea. The balcony has two retiring chairs which are very comfortable. The location of hotel is very near to Periyar reservoir. i recommend this hotel for a comfortable stay in Thekkady.

Room Tip: No TV in cottage.
