This hotel has certainly seen better days and staying off season meant that rooms had been left made up for some time before occupation. The bed lined, frayed and stained was very damp, as was everything else in the room. Some rooms are practically on the road running along the rear of the hotel. Vehicle noise and horns were a...

This hotel is in a reasonable location and the rooms look good and are spacious. The lights went out twice during my stay (in my room only) and it was only after the second time that they told me that a hairdrier could not be used. The hotel has a restuarant which serves decent food but the service is very... More

All the food items are hand picked by our CEO". Ordered 6 Biriyani, waiter said they will prepare after taking the order. We waited for 30 mins & asked waiter again,... More

Stayed at this hotel as part of a tour group. It looked very nice and the hotel was well laid out. However the shower in my bathroom was unworkable - the dials could not be turned. Also there were other plumbing problems. The hot water was turned off during the day and the hairdryer would not work in the room... More

My boss had booked me at this hotel. He has been using it for years and loves it. And now I too can say the same. It is truly home away from home. My small deluxe room was so cozy with a massive bathroom. The room had a small wall fan, and while it was a little hot during the... More

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
