Hotel Ambadi is well situated in Periyar, close to the Periyar Wildlife Tiger Reserve, walking distance to the main street which is full of Kashmiri traders, and excellent local restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable. Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. Excellent range of local fare on the menu. Would stay here again.

Stayed here for two nights. Our room was spacious, with lots of wood used throughout. Big comfortable bed. No air-con, just a fan. But, as Peryiar National Park is a considerable distance above sea level, the room was perfectly cool at night. No need for a mosquito net either.There was a small balcony outside with seats, but we only used... More

We came to the restaurant on the recommendation seen in lonely planet. My husband ordered a chicken korma which was absolutely awful. It was basically cooked chicken in a campbell's condensed chicken soup. I've seen other reviews of here which have been favourable, but I would steer clear of this place. Service was slow and they add service charge to... More

While on our 8 days trip to Kerala in dec 2013, we had to stay in Thekady for just one day. So, we were looking for a decent accommodation. I came across this hotel and booked this. I was most skeptical about this as it was the cheapest place I had booked in the entire 8 day trip. But when... More

I will review only the attached restaurant because we used only that and not the hotel. We had meals twice there on two consecutive nights. The food was great, just cooked right and very reasonably priced. The service was superb on the first night but on the second night it was very poor. No response from the staff for very... More

We only spent a night here (but would gladly have stayed longer). Duplex rooms are nice, clean and quaint and share a balcony with the neighboring duplex room. Staff were very friendly and the restaurant deserves it's spot in the lonely planet guide.

The positives are it's an attractive hotel with large, wooden panelled rooms and pleasant balconies, decent bathrooms, very clean and ample hot water. However, this was the noisiest hotel I have ever stayed in anywhere in the world. We were there for two nights. At midnight on the first night we were woken by a large family party arriving. They...
