The room we stayed was large enough for our family of four, which had an additional cot(not just a bed!). Seeing my family, Shibu the owner arranged this room quickly for us. As many people have pointed out the host family is very helpful and Shibu would go out of the way to help. This place is very close to... More

We stayed for two nights at the Kerala House in Thekaddy at the beginning of April. We were two families, traveling with two teenagers each. We initially booked 4 rooms but due to a confusion, we ended up with one room per family which turned out to be fine. The rooms were on the first floor, spacious, and clean, facing... More

The hotel room is large enough and the view from the balcony is mind blowing. Almost all the places are nearby(within 3-4 kms).The boating and night safaries are very close. The only disadvantage is that ,there is no car parking,and you will have to park the car on the road.There is a restaurant opp.to the inn. CONS:*No car parking,hence you... More

This is a great homestay which overlooks a clearing at the edge of the Periyar Tiger Reserve, Rooms are huge and clean, with balcony views of the clearing. I saw mongoose, wild boars and sambar deer, and countless birds. Kumily has a small town feel but there is plenty to do: trekking, boating or walking in the Wildlife Reserve or... More

Went with family First week of April 2015. It's set back from the main road which avoids road traffic noise. There is NO signage or reception to know where to go when you arrive or if you need to ask questions. Parking is on the road if you have a car. Location is very good as you can go walking... More

We booked on the day and there was a little confusion when we arrived after a long drive as they didn't seem to be expecting us... But they were very welcoming and helpful when we'd shown them the reservation confirmation. We got a great room on the second floor which had a lovely view of the nature reserve. There were... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at Kerela House. We had the upstairs rooms overlooking the nature reserve which was fabulous. In the mornings we watched a mother mongoose and her two children playing in the reserve and there is a regular (wild?) boar who came every morning to rumage for food. Also saw a red mongoose and deer and... More

I stayed here in Dec 2014. Rooms are specious and very well maintained. Rooms and toilets are very clean. Room and balcony is well decorated with decent furniture. One should not miss early morning and evening view from balcony. You may get a chance to watch different birds. It is amazing experience. Location is very good as once can go... More

I stopped for 1 night to break the trip from Munnar to Kollam and stayed for 4. Room was spotlessly clean and tidy and the views across to the park we're brilliant. I spent almost one whole day just enjoying the wildlife and grazing activity from my balcony. The cafe across the road and upstairs (Thekkady Cafe) whilst very humble... More
