I spent a night at this KTDC Hotel along with my family. A place to build relation with nature, greens, deep and dark forest, wildness, calm and quiet mystery. I regret that we could not spend more time there, next time this place is going to be my priority. It has neatly maintained restaurant, nice food, very well mannered and... More

As unmistakable in India, like other Government hotels, KTDC Periyar House has an advantage of great location. Crossing the check post, while moving through the metal road surrounded by jungle, we were greeted by the beautiful Periyar House. We booked the superior room, which, however, appeared to be a bit old, was spacious. The bathroom, we were provided was neat... More

There was no AC but surprisingly Periyar was cooler than Munnar. Try to choose... More

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
