Hotel in need of improvement.Nice place.Askfor a r

Posted Feb 2, 2017 on Hotels
Good location and view Monkey on the trees. Attention they had tried to be nice and tis is appreciated.They gave me an upgrade room with A/C since the hotel only have 2 rooms withA/C. THANKS FOR IT..When is hot during the day you will need it .The rest of the day is nice and cool in January.Hot water takes around 20 minutes for warm up and there is a waste of water and our time. We call because we lost power in the half of a cottage and nobody come in one day. The hotel had better days,It need to be painted and pay attention Our Driver was given REALLY HARD TIME TO GET INTO THE HOTEL TO PICK US UP THE LAST DAY even he was seen the 2 previous day and that WAS NOT GOOD. This hotel can be good again with attention.

Nice location

Posted Jan 15, 2017 on Hotels
Nice location although one needs an auto(5 -10 mins drive) to reach town and any other place. Shower was unrepairable. Restaurant has only south indian dishes except 2 non veg dishes in buffet. Overall a nice resort.

Excellent stay

Posted Sep 7, 2016 on Hotels
We stayed here for 3 nights & i cant recommend this hotel enough. We had a cosy log cabin beside the pool. Lots of TV channels & free Wifi. We were totally spoiled by the staff. They could not have been more helpful. Extremely friendly & hospitable. The pool is excellent. Food is excellent A little haven to chill out for a few days & do some safari. Loved it here.

Worst 3 star resort ever. very poor DONT STAY HERE

Posted Feb 7, 2016 on Hotels
Worst 3 star resort EVER. Filthy pool with a glowing film, whole pool booked out for private party, no alcohol served anywhere in resort, bad service, rude manager, dirty sheets didnt even get changed. we were so tired from driving that we just got there and passed out. restaurant is ok / average. breakfast was average. Wifi only works in reception. DONT STAY HERE unless your desperate. Security guard yelled at my husband for no reason as he is indian and I am australian he assumed he was my driver. No consideration or hospitality skills at all. everyone is rude.

Awful! Overpriced, everything was old damp damaged and tired. The pool was disgusting. We had to wait 30 minutes to get our room despite arriving well after check in. The sheets were stained. Blinds broken. We changed rooms, the bedding was damp again, bedding still stained. Terrible arrive and experience.

Awesome place - woods n spice

Posted Feb 15, 2015
Pros: staff and cleanliness of rooms, arrangements in the room
Cons: AC should be there, sometime it gets little bit hot in the rooms
Location: - Periyar tiger serve forest - Jeep Safari (Rs. 3000 for a jeep) - Periyar tiger serve forest - Boat Safari (Rs. 225 per person), - Elephant Ride
Very nice place, very near to Periyar Tiger Reserve, few monkeys were entering into hotel as its on border of forest, very clean and clam, everything natural, overall pleasant stay :)

A nice resort close to the forest in Thekkady

Posted Jan 16, 2015
The location is excellent. We would've enjoyed our stay at the resort etter if we could stay in Thekkady for one more day.
