Stayed at The Michael's Inn at Thekkady for one night while exploring Kerala in Feb 13. Moment you enter the place you are greeted with a warm traditional structure which is very inviting. Rooms are very good and spacious and the room service was very prompt. There is a old world charm with this hotel which is very inviting specially when one is on a vacation. The food and beverage options are good, the prices are reasonable and the team is really quick and friendly. Overall we had a good experience here and I recommend this hotel as much as we would like to stay here on our return visit. Breakfast service could be improved since the personal touch was lacking, therefore rated 3/5 on service.

Room Tip: Though there is adequate communication in the rooms, the windows should be kept closed owing to the...

We stayed in Thekkaday for a few nights while we did the wildlife safari tour. This hotel was reasonably priced and the service & cleanliness matched this expectation. Our room was 304, which unfortunately sits at the backside of the hotel above some fuel storage bins (you could smell it in the evening). The restaurant was pretty good, above the standards of many of the places we visited. All in all, for the price and location, it was good and we'd come back but only for a room in 305/306 (West-side of the building).

NOTE: expect that the internet wifi doesn't work!!!

Room Tip: We had room #304 and you could smell gasoline at night whereas another guest said she smelt exhaust...

We came to Thekkady to visit Periyar National Park and did not expect to find such a clean, comfortable and pleasant hotel at all. The hotel is located within wlaking distance to the Elephant rides and the Nature walks in Periyar as well as the lively little town of Thekkady with all its spice merchants, martial arts and fried banana chips. The food was very decent, the staff friendly and extremely helpful and the rooms very clean and functional. Free wifi in the lobby. It is not luxury but an excellent base for your adventures in this rich and beautiful part of Kerala.

Room Tip: Rooms a little away from the road may offer less morning or evening noise from the streets.

This is one of the rare stays we’ve found in South India wherein when we have arrived, we have not been greeted with a swarm of mosquitoes. Although South India is not known and popular with Malaria, the insects here are of a different species and repellants do not work.

The room was standard with hot water although the bed was slightly hard compared to others. I must admit that cleanliness and good grasp of sanitation can be demonstrated in their clean white sheets including their towels. Electrical power comes in an out although they have instant generator replacing it. There was no aircondition but the ceiling fan was enough to cool us during the day and night.

We’ve had dinner included in our stay and admittedly it was very good food and as it was buffet, it is even better for people enjoying to eat to their heart’s content.

I would recommend this place as a decent choice if you want a clean, comfortable stay in Thekkady without having to break a bank.
