We chose to stay here because it was inside the Periyar wildlife sanctuary but this didn't turn out to be as much of an advantage as we'd thought it would be. There isn't much to do or see in the sanctuary unless you are on a paid tour (There is a self-guided trail but we were told you must be... More

We had the unfortunate experience of paying upfront for 2 nights stay at Periyar House. The room was dirty and disgusting, it had mould on the ceiling, fungus growing on the door reveal, the shower did not work, light switches were filthy, bed was as hard as a plank of wood with sheets barely covering the mattress, and the wardrobe...

A quaint hotel nestled in the middle of a wildlife reserve and walking distance from the Periyar lake. An occasional glimpse of the wild sambar and elephants adds to the excitement. Clean rooms, excellent food and excellent service. As it is inside the reserve entry is not allowed after 5:00. So be sure to reach bfore this closing time.

For its location being inside the Periyar Reserve, Hotel gets full marks. At night, some animals roam around your hotel and it is the best experience to watch them without disturbing them. A true jungle experience with day starting with sunrise and ending with sunset. A nature lovers life. Along with location, Hotel arranges for quick tickets for boat safari... More

The hotel is a decent government run hotel - very solid and pleasant furniture, and reasonably well maintained. If you want to visit the Periyar reserve this is a fantastic place to stay. The price was reasonable compared to the alternatives, and it was great staying in the park. The hotel gets the best tickets for the cruise, and allows... More

Periyar House is situated inside the Periyar Tiger Reserve. A nicely maintained Government property. Conventional rooms with good ambience. Do not expect bell boys to serve you in the room. But rooms are spacious, neat and clean. An ideal spot for family and groups of family. A tidy community room equipped with indoor games tables. Amidst lawn with kids games.... More

The hotel was decent. The food was nice, authentic Indian food. Not really much to do, but the boat trip on Periyar lake (many tourists, diesel exhaust and few animals). Instead, go for the two or three day hike (tiger trail) inside the park. Small groups (2-6 people), camping and food included and much more wildlife and views! We stayed... More
