After a long 100k day cycling and the 5k steep climb to the top of the mountain, this hotel really does 'hit the spot. We've got a two day stop over and it's comfortable, the food is very good and staff very helpful. Exchange rate for the GB£ is excellent here too. So Result!! Off on jeep safari today but... More

I have stayed here for a week. And that was amazing experience. The rooms are well cozy and westernised (hot shower). And it's located inside the jungle in amazing nature and close to all of the attractions in the area. Additionaly the resturant is very indulging and welcoming. Nice and polite stuff and the important thing is the delicious food... More

I stayed here for three nights, really nice rooms. Very light, cozy and clean! What the stay made so special was the staff and the wonderful garden. Take a room on the the top floor, great view from there!! The hotel is not in the town centre and surrounded by nature, therefore lots of wildlife. The cafe is also very... More

We stayed at Chrissie's Hotel in December, and had a wonderful experience. The water was hot, the restaurant was perfect (vegan options, hurrah!), and the location was the best of both worlds, with close proximity to everything you need in Kumily/Thekkadi, while also seemingly a removed forest oasis. But what really made our stay special was the service from Adel... More

Lovely tranquil hotel set back from road amid greenery. Both central and quiet, and also very good value. Also enjoyed the cafe. But perhaps main highlight was extremely diligent and competent staff ... Adel (the manager) and his staff were consistently knowledgable, efficient, and personable. We were particularly impressed with how Adel managed to help us organise activities (a walk... More

We had a nice stay here -- it's a very good value and the staff are helpful. Yoga studio = awesome. We did a private class, and enjoyed it. The restaurant has a rooftop that is nice. My only observation on the negative side is that the laundry service seemed a bit disorganized, and we didn't get our clothes until... More

This is a very sweet place with a beautiful garden and amazing wildlife at a very reasonable price. We liked it so much we extended our stay. We were lucky to get Room No. 13, where we could sit on our balcony and watch monkeys and incredible birds frolic almost close enough to touch. Owner Adel Hassan is a great... More

I've been staying at Chrissies hotel since they first opened in 2005,the gardens there are a delight and visited by a variety of jungle critters including a George & Mildred Hornbill. I highly recommend staying here as it's a great place surrounded by jungle.

The hotel provides a relaxing atmosphere and very friendly staffs. The rooms were neat and tidy, had balcony with a nice view. The only negative is that there was only one mirror, that too inside the bathroom. Overall a very good stay.
