A very neat and well maintained property backed by great service and a wonderful set of people running the property. My wife, child and i spent a memorable holiday at Grand Thekkady. What set this hotel apart from the others are its people and the attentive service we received throughout our stay. We spent a little bit of time roaming... More

I stayed at Grand Thekkady with my family, it was a complete rejuvenation. The rooms were very spacious and clean. Service was prompt. Thekkady was a really good experience with its animal encounters and all, the icing on the cake was the hotel which was really comforting.

I find this hotel to be a little overpriced. The service and the hotel in itself is not bad but the look of the hotel is very dull and not welcoming at all. They have a lot of scope for improvement as far as their lighting and decoration is concerned. The place can be lit well in such a way... More

My room was good though a bit pricey. The food was OK too. But we had a really bad time during checkout when we had to wait for nearly an hour as the person at the receptionist couldn't type out a bill without support. Extremely unprofessional. Never again.!

We opted this hotel while our visit to Thekkady Tiger Reserve and I dont think there was a single negative aspect about this hotel. Be it room, service, breakfast buffet, location from tiger reserve, everything was best. Though we found the ala carte prices a bit high so we went to a near by Jain restaurent :p The hotel was...

Great location in walking distance of shops, wild life reserve and elephant rides so from a tourist point of view ticked the boxes. Food was ok but a short walk away found a local restaurant with exceptional food and cheap prices so ate there twice. This was one of the better places that I stayed at in terms of location... More
