“couldnt have been more welcomed”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

we picked this hotel simply for reviews we had read. and we were not disappointed. now we did stay in the deluxe room at 1500 rs but this was defiantly worth it. a spacious room with a balcony with a view...perfection! mr suresh was too a wonderful man who went out of his way to make sure thekkady was explored properly. he made sure we go the tickets to the border walks and made sure we were there on time. also the cookery class he set up for us was fantastic....since being home have re created many of the dishes. couldn't fault this accommodation.
thekkady is great too as a stop off place and would recommend periyar wildlife park to everybody. there isn't much else to do but visit the park as the town is quite small. wonderful experience.

Room Tip: go for the deluxe room

We stayed here for only one night. The room was large and clean. Location was good. The balcony had a beautiful view of the garden. It was quiet and peaceful. The owner Mr. Suresh is a gentleman and the stay was without much problem. It had rained the previous night hence the tap water had become red and muddy. This was a problem for us. The only other problem was food. You need to eat out every time. It is not a hotel which has room service. It is a different kind of experience.

We stayed at GreenView for 3 nights. The rooms are clean and the rates are good. We had a wondeful tropical View from our balcony and spotted more monkeys than on our safari! They have 24h warm water and a good continental, but even better Keralan breakfast. They have Wifi for free and lovely staff.
But if you really want to juge a homestay, you should have a look how they react to critical incidents. We met a woman who was travelling on her own and she also stood at GreenView. In a shop in Kumily she had problems with one of the merchants. When the manager of GreenView got this, he reacted within seconds. He ran to the supervisor of the shops in Kumily and took care that this guy was going to be fired and punished. Afterwards he was so carrying and worried about that woman.
I think you'll have to search long for a homestay like this. We are so thankful for the kind and nice chats we had with him.
Generally you have to be aware in Kumily. At the Bus station some people will pick you up and tell you that they are from the stuff of a certain homestay. That is not true!!! They take you to any homestay and want to sell you stuff like safaris and dance shows. And they'll overcharge you. Always ask for the manager and don't arange activities with the guys from the bus station! You can trust the manager of Greenview and he wont cheat you.
Women who are trevelling on their own should be aware. But if they dress propely and don't walk alone throu the night they will be save in Kumily.
We loved GreenView, it made our India trip so much more fun and we give the best recommendations for it.

Me and my mother arrived late the first night, choose to stay, 2 nights there after reading about it on lonely planet. The room was ok kinda clean, the bathroom was not with brown water and most of the time ice cold we had to ask then to clean the toilette. The room also had a nice teresa with Monkeys saying hello at breakfast time. The owner was very friendly saying he is a specialist in yoga, reiki and offered numerous times to give me a foot massage in the end I realized he was a being a little to friendly and to touchy when asking me to come up to the roof with him at 23:00 at night to see the view.. Needless to say that it was pitch dark and there was no view..

Fine guesthouse. The hardworking owner is very helpfull. The rooms are spacious, clean and inexpensive. Highly recommended! As a former rickshaw driver the owner knows the area very well and can advise on all sorts of trips and organize them.

I stayed here for about 4days during rainy season. As a solo traveller on a budget, I paid 550R which gave me a pretty comfy room even though it's on the pricier end of budget accom. The room was clean, with working fan and tv, the bathroom had hot water which was great.

There was free wifi at reception and they did the basic continental breakfast that you can find at most GHs in India. I also had idli though, and the Indian option is definitely better!

My main recommendation for staying here is the service. The owner is ready to help you with any and all activity requests and will also take you to his GH in Munnar if you are heading that way. I adtually got sick on my first day, and I am so glad that I stayed here when that happened. Being alone and sick is the worst combo, but I was given tea and toast and bananas and checked on periodically. As I regained strength, it was so lovely to have a nice family taking care of me. Although I didn't end up seeing that much of Kumily, I'm glad I chose to stay here!
