Good stay

Friendly, knowledgable staff make connecting to sights and experiences easy. Meals are well prepared although the menu is a bit limited. No complaints. Some descriptions of nearby sights in English would be helpful to guests as English as spoken by Indians may not be easily understood. Escapees from winter long for a pleasant place to sit outside, none exists but there are opportunities.

Value for money accomodation

Pros: Good friendly staff; decent food
Cons: The approach road off the Thirunelly road. Also, housekeeping doesn't seem to clean the room or provide fresh towels if you stay for over a day.
Location: It's just about a km and a half outside the town of Thirunelly. But since it is inside the forest, you definitely need to have your own transportation
Booked 2 AC rooms at Tamarind Thirunelly through Expedia. The rates offered by Expedia were cheaper than even the official KTDC website. The rooms were fairly decent, but could have been cleaner - we found a couple of roaches in one of the rooms. There were some electrical problems due to which the air-conditioner stopped running in one of the rooms in the middle of the night. The staff though was very friendly and helpful; and offered an alternate room for the next day. Food options were pretty limited; but we liked what was served. You need to order your food around 3-4 hours prior to dinner time. Breakfast had a fixed menu, but was delicious. It was a pleasant surprise to get such good food in a KTDC hotel. There is not much of a view to speak of from any of the rooms; but the rooms are spacious and you get hot water in the bathrooms. On the whole, it is good value for money.

Review of KTDC Tamarind

Posted Jan 26, 2012
Pros: Staff & Food
Cons: Nothing.. May be its a little inside the city & a proper sitting area where u can enjoy the nature around..
Location: Its a little inside on the Thirunelly rd.About 13 km fm the main road..Better to reach the hotel before night as you may find wild animals on the way.
Amazing food & excellent staff. When I booked it I never expected anything of this from a government venture. All the staffs in this hotel are very friendly & the food is awesome. I love it.. Will recommend this for anyone & will visit there again just because of them.
