My friend and I spent one night at the Abad in Jan 2013.
While the rooms are spacious, with each having a balcony, and the place very clean, the feeling of being in a mountain venue is completely lost.
Though the location of the hotel is great with the center of "town" very near by, but the trade off is that there are no good views and there is barely a feeling at all that you are in a hill station rather than just the suburbs of some city.
The food was also very mediocre, though the Idlis in breakfast are some of the best we have ever had in our lives. All the other food left a lot to be desired.
The spa is very traditional, so if you go for a treatment, be prepared for that. You are not going for a session of zen relaxation and pampering, it is more of a medical treatment of specific ailments that you want to address.
Also note that there is no alcohol in the restaurants at this hotel. The service overall is also average.
But the flip side is that this is a decently priced central place to stay if you are looking to stay in Thekkady.
