The room is good, clean and spacious & the balcony has a good view of the forest. The bathroom is quite basic but works for a one night stay. The food served at the restaurant is very average, though the service was efficient. The first thing which the manager insists during check-in is the ayurvedic massage. We were not interested,...

A small group of us stayed here recently as one of the stops with a Blazing Trails motorcycle tour. We were all delighted by the wood sculptures in our rooms and the public areas. The rooms were extremely comfortable and the restaurant was excellent. Probably the best hotel on the two week th=rip.

Stayed there with my wife for a day. Stay was awesome with the room. View from the sit out is awesome. Good hospitality from the staffs. Breakfast was good. Many varieties were provided. Hotel also has a swimming pool which is really maintained well. Hotel is reachable as it is very close to Periyar tiger reserve, Shopping areas.

Rangerwood nature castle is the best place to stay,if you want to have an amazing time with your friends or family. The service is really good with tidy rooms and an exquisite view from the balcony. The place is really calm and quite. The relaxed ambience is very popular with all the guests.

Old classic looks indoors. Old wooden furniture. Big rooms. Very near to wildlife sanctuary(dont expect that you could see any wild animals even though it is very near). Best for ayurveda massage. View close to nature from outside of room. Market at walking distance 15 mins. Very low clumsy environment due to all old furniture. staff is ok. Food is... More

Tree house is okay. Tree house is not located as a part of hotel. Poor food experience at dinner and breakfast. Food was cold and not quality. One would expect at least South Indian dishes to be good but that was not the case. Hotel is located close to the tiger reserve national park. Service was average.

It is NOT a tree house. It is built in plastic and concrete. Epic fake. I checked also on their website before booking and there was written false information (I will attach pictures). Very bad staff and services. The manager is arrogant and when I showed him my disappointing he only laughed. Paid a lot for a super fake.
