We read mixed reviews about the place and therefore stayed in another hotel outside the forest reserve for a day. However, during our visit to the forest we went to the hotel and we were instantly in love with the place. If you go to a forest to be with nature, this place is the definitely the place to be....

Being located inside the park, we thought it would be easier to organize activities. It is the contrary! Once inside (gate closes at 5.30 pm) you cannot do anything, you are stucked in the hotel with no activities, nothing to do. They can't arrange any excursions from reception, you have to get in town. And since the park is closed... More

We stayed for 2 nights. (Have got to say we came with high expectations of a beautiful serene lodge in the heart of a forest; and we had been promised a beautiful forest and lake view from our balcony by the hotel staff). When we arrived we were shown into a cramped claustrophobia inducing room with a tiny window and... More

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
