Stayed here for two nights. The rooms were basic but good enough for the price. The location is fantastic as its within the wildlife reserve itself. Great for those early morning or late night treks through the forest. The food was very good and there were always something that one could eat even if he/she is not fond of local... More

Its an excellent place inside the national forest, food provided is good. Tickets for boat rides are available in KTDC and occupants are given preference, its a 10 min walk to the boat ride. Would highly recommand this place for staying inside the forest.

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...
