This was one of the best hotel i have stayed. The rooms were clean and tidy, the bathroom (equipped with bath tub) was also clean. The room doors, bed, racks, mirrors were all fitted with wood, giving you a feel of natural ambiance. The back door of the room opened in a balcony, with 2 chairs, where you can plan... More

Very attractive traditional hotel set in centre of Thekkady, very convenient for National Park. Spacious, but basic rooms with small balcony. Nice restaurant, but very slow service. Good VFM No bar, go to Bamboo House restaurant for beer served from a teapot in teacups!!
