We stayed here recently and can thoroughly recommend it as very good value for money! It is in a super location only a few minutes walk to the main area and overlooking the Nature Reserve. It is very clean and my room was lovely and light and spacious and the Internet was excellent!

We liked the balcony very much, it faced the wild filed (forest?), we could see boars, fireflies and squirrels. The room was also clean, nice bathroom with hot water shower running. The owner was friendly and helpful. The place values the money we paid.

Five of us stayed here for three nights just before Christmas. The rooms are very nice, spotlessly clean, and have excellent views of the Periyar reserve. We stayed in both the first and second floor rooms, and the second floor rooms are nicer. Lots of wildlife can be seen right from the balconies on both floors. Shibu is an excellent... More

We had some problems to find the place as it is not directly on the main road. The rooms are huge, spotless and include a balcony with view on the fringes of the national park. From our balcony we spotted lots of different birds, wild boar, a group of black monkeys, mongoose,etc. Shibu, the owner, is very helpful, in my... More

We were recommended this homestay, and it was one of the friendliest places we stayed in throughout our time in India. Shibu, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful. He went out of his way to make sure we had a good time, organizing a trip into the reserve, elephant rides, spice farm visit even the buying of a wooden... More

Good- The rooms were very big and clean. It was quite adequate and spacious for us. The view from the balcony is good. You have have a nice cup of tea in the morning and enjoy the view of the far forest. Very close to the tiger reserve and at the heart of Thekkady. The owner is good, soft spoken... More

Shibu was extremely hospitable and our activities were nicely arranged although we only had 2 days there. At our request, Shibu's wife prepared a really wonderful home-cooked meal for us. If you are ever there, please try it! Also, the room is spacious, clean and comfortable. Totally love the balcony view!

I stayed at Kerala House with my family on 19th & 20th November. We had booked 2 rooms. Rooms were very spacious & clean with all the necessary requirements. Both rooms had a huge balcony with a view of nature & mountains just outside Periyar Tiger Reserve. It was very relaxing to just sit on the chairs in the balcony... More

The hotel is located near the entrance of Periyar Tiger reserve, within 5 minutes walking distance, and Kumily town centre is only 15 minutes walking distance. The room is spacious, and very clean. When the owner, Shibu opened the balcony, we couldn't help but went "Wow.....". You got the whole field and forest view on the balcony. Unfortunately, we only... More
