It is inside the Periyar Tiger reserve forest. The boat safari counter is at walking distance from this hotel. It' s tourism property and maintained very well. The rooms are big. But you can not keep the door or window open. There are lots of monkeys and you need to be careful with them.They will be at your door step... More

Budget hotel but very clean and well maintained. The nuisance of the monkey is something to keep in mind while staying here. Travelling in the winter, the drive inside the sanctuary to the hotel was green n beautiful and weather was chilly but pleasant. We stayed for a night in a deluxe room. Food had a home made taste and... More

Great experience for us in Periyar House, which is mid of a jungle. Though it is a budget hotel we never felt it. The complimentary dinner and breakfast was tasty and we enjoyed it. Though we booked a suit room with a big balcony, we could not use it since monkeys always made it a point to stay there

It was a great experience for us in Periyar House. Staff was courteous. Know the requirement of the customers and server them well. Considering it is a budget hotel, the complimentary dinner and breakfast was good and we enjoyed it. Non veg item like fish and chicken was available in buffet dinner. The catering stuff went extra mile to fulfill... More

Very good property in Periyar National Park. Decent and clean rooms. Decent food arrangements. Lot of monkeys around. Need to be careful with them. Good to take a walk around. Very close to the boating station Hotel arranges for the tickets of boating, making it very comfortable avoiding long queues.

really nice location, inside of the national park ( and this is the only positive thing about this place), but no one mention that from 6:00 pm you cannot leave the hotel because of the wild life around. it is reasonable, but they should mention it on their website. we were imprisoned , the staff speak very poor English, was...

Stayed for 2N. Stay is relaxed. Good part is the location, which is in the reserve forest, however food is not good. Facilities Good, for a 1star hotel. Good for the price you pay. clean air. Hotel surroundings have a nice walking area, children play area and vicinity to boat ride.

I made the mistake of staying here for one night recently. I don't usually bother to write negative reviews but people should be aware of what's in store if they stay here. - The buffet food made me sick. I had been warned that the food was dodgy here so I stuck to vegetarian options, but I still caught a... More

We booked this well in advance. Hotel is approx 4 km inside forest from gate. Reach well before 5 PM or max 5:30 PM else Forest deptt will not allow to enter. Very pleasant but beware of Monkeys, they are really in large no and sometimes scary but from distance you can enjoy avoiding any eatables in hand. You can't... More
