Having read the reviews of this place on trip advisor, we booked a room for three days. Upon reaching the place, we found out that the approach is a narrow pathway about 50 m off the main road accessible only by foot. Having taken our own car, we were dismayed to learn there was no parking and we'd have to... More

Small treehouse style lodging that is off the street and juts into the park so you are surrounded by nature. Top two floors (where we stayed) had balconies with chair swings that looked into the park, giving you a 180 degree view of the nature, water buffalo etc. A stunning view and peaceful feeling. Proprietor is VERY accommodating. He helped... More

From the street side it is difficult to find the place.There is just a little name-plate from where you have to follow a narrow footpath 150 m down to the nice lokking private Guest House.. The location is very nice, from our balcony we had a good view into a exotic landscape.. The house is build in the trational style... More

I booked the place for 2 nights. We checked in a little late in night but the hosts were there to help us out. You need to park your vehicle on the road, and walk down just 100 metres or so to reach. We were a little skeptical about the place, specifically the location on reaching, but felt comfortable thereafter.... More

We intended to stay for 4 days at this lovely homestay, but ended up staying 6. We had the top room, with a very luxurious view into the wildlife reserve. Almost no need to go on a safari trip, as you can spot lots of birds and some small mammals right from your balcony! The house is beautiful, with some... More

We stayed here based on the reviews and we are glad we did. My husband fell in love with the views from the top floor room where we stayed. The room was all wood and kerala style. The path leading to the stay was not quite what we had expected but once we were there we loved everything. The stay... More

We stayed about four nights at Meadow View Inn. It was a long haul up to the second floor with our heavy bags but we chose that for the view at the back into the forest reserve (from the top & back). We (and the people in the room above us) had the most fantastic view over the park and... More

This property is owned by one ex Forest officer. The rooms are very much made of wood and you could hear the wind whirling if you take the top most floor. There are mosquitoes and no light. Hence sitting out at night becomes impossible. But the view is scintillating. We booked a watch tower and it was nothing like what... More
