Rajesh the owner was there to welcome us. However, the room was not quite ready for us, but that was fine we had just travelled down from Munnar and were thirsty and hungry. Lots of restaurants within 5 minute walk, plus shops to browse around.

Couldn't wait to get back to the property to see our room. We were on the top floor and the bedroom and bathroom were huge. The views from our balcony were stunning, seeing my first samba deer and boar from the balcony was great and to hear all the different birdsong and frogs.

We had quite a few power cuts while there, but Jungle Palace didn't seem affected so presume they have a generator unlike the hotels opposite. Only drawback is having to ask for hot water to be switched on, which is done immediately, but just didn't like having to disturb the family.

Rajesh was very kind and arranged for a tuk tuk to take us to the local elephant sanctuary where we rode and washed the elephant. It was great. The next day a jeep had been arranged to take us on safari. Rajesh's father or father-in-law was up at 5.15 am just to make sure we were all set for our trip.

Met his two children who were lovely - all in all a lovely family running a lovely place.

As soon as we arrived Mr Rajesh was already at the door ready to meet us! Our room was immediately available and it was clean and spacious. The view from the rooms were stunning and maintenance was good. Mr Rajesh was extremely helpful and approachable. The only drawback was having to ask for the hot water to be turned on when we wanted to shower, but he did this immediately with no problems The location was fantastic and great value for money. Will definitely stay here again on my next visit! :)

We reached this place in the afternoon. We were welcomed by our host Mr. Rajesh. The Rooms were neat and clean... This place is absolute Value for the money you pay. Power outage is a problem. There was no power for most part of the night but we were able to get a good sleep due the pleasent weather. The biggest drwback is they dont provide food. There is one restaurent nearby who charge bomb for pathetic food. They charge Rs. 25 for MRP RS. 20 bottle of drinking water and say this is how they charge. Would be a greata place to stay if they arrange for a kitchen where they can provide atleast limited varieties.

The hotel rooms are quite spacious. The bathrooms were clean and neat. The view from the room was better.. Very decent budgeted hotel. The maintenance was good. The hotel is on the way to the Lake. Mr.Rajesh is very helpful.

Room Tip: Only draw back is they don't restaurant! You have to go out to have breakfast and dinner.
