We stayed at Periyar House in August 2014 for 2 night and had 2 rooms for us. The hotel is inside the Tiger reserve which is a big plus compared to the ones outside but that is where its value ends. We walked over to the Aranya Nivas which is also inside the Tiger Reserve and liked it much better.... More

In the midst of periyar tiger reserve walkable distance from periyar lake wildlife safari. Food in buffet is awesome, plenty of varieties. Rooms are cozy except executive or suite. Well maintained rooms. Only bad thing you have to enter the resort by evening as the forest gate gets closed by 6:00 p.m. not allowed to go outside. Couldn't roam around... More

Deluxe rooms are pretty decent with in-built heater in the bathroom. Suite room is quite large with a separate balcony and bathroom is equipped with bathtub. Staff are highly courteous... More

Periyar house is a best n budget jungle resort, out of city and full of greenery. Rooms are clean n neat. Food was very good but limited menu since occupancy was low, service was nice. Periyar house is the best jungle resort ever seen maintained by government. Good place to stay.

Stayed for one day 23 May’14. Hotel location is very nice. We got confirm boating ticket from the hotel reception. Good room service. Staff is friendly and always ready to help. Breakfast and dinner was excellent in test. Rooms and bathroom were clean, spacious and well maintained with 24 hour hot water supply.

I still give this 4 stars because of the location - right in the middle of forest; periyar lake canal is right behind the hotel too, almost private. Spotted sambar deer, langoor monkeys, wild boars, whistle bird right in the campus. Got upper deck tickets for periyar boat cruise through hotel. Food was bad though - both me and my... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in Apr'14. The rates are very affordable. The package includes BF and Dinner. Very limited stuff available for lunch. We reached this place at around 1.30 afternoon. Found only Biryani available. Nothing else. We were forced to have it. But the biggest advantage staying here is assured tickets to the Boat ride in Periyar river... More

The property is inside the jungle, lush greenery all around the guest house. You can really feel the jungle while staying here, especially at night, no noise from outside world, only sounds of Jhi Jhi poka ( an insect in Bengali, which generally found in jungle and silent places)... truly memorizing. The sanctuary gates closes at 6, so no one... More
