Hotel is well designed with wooden theme everywhere. However the location of the hotel is at market place opposite to what I thought it would be in forest area as it is close to Periyar Tiger Reserve.

The rooms given to us were duplex wood house looking!Good concept,but in ordinary condition. Did not like the reception response. Mosquito bite bothered us a lot. In reception customer handling made us feel like if not we ,they will get another customer and it is our luck that we get room there.

Hotel Ambadi was not in our package list & because we reach d a day earlier somehow. Our caring tour manager Mr. George Antony managed us a cottage at Ambadi with nice price & we must confess pretty good rooms than we expected. Highly recommended , a very economical hotel at least when we visited on 30/12/2011

lovely location- old property, nice restaurant with lots of choices. Food was good- we had four different entrees and everyone enjoyed their choice. The tandoor chicken was not too spicy- very tasty but small portion. The lemon rice was delicious!

Ambadi looks the business from the outside, nice little cottages with terraces or balconies accessed up and down steps etc but the rooms leave a bit to be desired. Very dark unless you leave the balcony door open, but you can't do that or the monkeys get in! But the beds! My back still aches just thinking about it! I... More

The supplies in the room are decent and clean. There is lot of wooden furniture used and the theme is quite antique and rustic. We loved the... More

I visited the restaurant in this hotel twice with my family last week. During the first dinner, we noticed that service was slow towards us and a few other patrons got super prompt service. We ignored this as an one off case. The food was ok, prawn starter was infact delicious but the chicken biriyani was quite average. Next day... More
