“The best hotel we had in India”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

This was absolutely the best stay we had in 3 weeks trip to South India. The three of us got the family unit in the hotel, 2 rooms with a kitchen, with 2 terraces that have view to the trees. Monkeys came to visit every morning and evening. The place maintained in very high level, not obvious in India. The staff is very friendly, helped a lot with all the activities we wanted to see and experience in the area. We enjoyed a very pleasant stay in Thekkady.

Room Tip: All rooms have the same view.

Guests are warmly welcomed when they arrive at Chrissie's and are well cared for during their stay! The property is lovely with beautiful foliage and monkeys entertaining you as they jump through the trees. The staff is helpful with your plans and will arrange for trusted drivers when you need them. The location is a short walk from the Tiger Reserve and you can easily walk into town. We enjoyed our 2 night stay and would truly recommend Chrissie's if you are looking for a clean, reasonable, comfortable & friendly small hotel.

Friendly helpful staff and owners and we had a first floor room with a balcony which provided excellent views and wildlife. Birds flitting in and out of adjacent trees and the occasional monkey reminded you that this was a relaxing location.Room was pretty basic and poorly illuminated but functional bathroom with hot shower.
We only experienced the breakfasts here which were satisfactory.

Very pleasant accommodation with a lovely garden view where you can observe wild life and monkeys.
Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast very good. Especially filter coffee and home made bread.
Plenty of places to eat within walking distance as well as the one on site.

We checked a couple of places when we arrived in Thekkady and Chrissi's is one of the better options to stay. The rooms are simple but clean and you have a small veranda to sit outside. Take a room in the back house as it is more quite and looks across the garden. And try to get one on of the higher floors. The restaurant offers western meals which are ok and nice for a change but don't go hungry or in a hurry as the service is very slow. The staff at the reception on the other hand was super helpful and gave us great recommendations for things to do or avoid and for the best ayurvedic treatments in town.

Room Tip: try to book one in the back house that overlooks the garden and on one of the higher floors

I really liked the place. We spent three relaxing days there. Our room was on the top floor, it was very clean and comfortable; quite spacious comparing to other places we stayed in Kerala, with a nice balcony. There is a beautiful garden. The choice of food was quite limited, but very good. Middle Eastern platter was just amazing! Chrissie, Adel and the staff are very helpful, they helped us organize different activities, like spice garden, visit to elephant junction, ayurvedic massages... and we love them all. Thank you!

The travel consultants who choose this place as a 3 star deluxe hotel must be mad. The only reason they choose this place is to cut cost. MY wife and her sisters arrived here and found this place haunted. They were the only guest. Long stair ways to the rooms. This place is far from a 3 star deluxe hotel. Our travel consult did not do his homework. They just did not stay, found another decent hotel in the area to stay.
