Three of us stayed here for 4 nights. Rajesh was a great host and couldn't have been more helpful! This is a comfortable family hotel in a great location overlooking the National Park. It is near the Gate to the Park. Thekkady is quite small and you wouldn't pick the Jungle Palace as being better or worse than others in... More

We came in the afternoon, It was rainig, the host didn't offer even tea. The room was cosy and spacious with tv, fan (need to mention that sockets are in very bad condition - loose, only one from...

Really enjoyed our stay here. Stayed 2 nights and visited the nearby tiger reserve which is easily accessible by tuk tuk from the homestay. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms large and clean. Had a room with a balcony where we saw sambar deer, wild pigs, otters and a variety of birds. Would definately stay here again>

We stay here for two nights in (Dec.2013). The rooms are very spacious and good. The home stay is quite close to the Tiger Reserve (hardly 0.5Km). One good thing is that they allowed us to use their kitchen for "self cooking" as a few family member are not liking the outside food.

We had two rooms on the ground floor for two nights. The owners were happy to help with anything. The rooms are very big and the view into the Tiger Reserve fantastic. It was clean and tidy and the breakfast was good value for money. I would stay again if I am in the area.

Friends for 2000 bucks at off season you can get at least 3 star hotel with very good faclities if you just spend a little while on the internet or chatting with frineds who have actually had good experience in Thekaddy. I am Keralite, but I feeld ashamed to say that I was totally let down by the kind of... More

Out of all the places we have been , Jungle palace stay was worst experience! For 2000 rupees a day, this place has not even met basic expectations like clean bedsheet. I found the people were there only to spin money out of low quality service. There are much better off places to stay in Thekkaddy, at very cheaper rates.... More

Friendly welcome from the owner. Room clean and very spacious, however toilet was not connected properly and water from the tank went everywhere when you flushed, fixable though. Went through cleartrip deal and got the room for RS1900, but managed to find a better room with balcony at another place close by for RS1000
