Location was excellent but weather was not so pleasant so overall my experience was not so good. Service was as per our expectation not that much impressive, I liked the room space and view outside room.

The room was simple, pretty clean. Since it is just in front of the forest expect insects and night butterflies... The stuff was very friendly. A bit disappointed by Thekkady....not really a lot to do beside a ride with the elephants or an expensive "safari" in the forest (that we did not do)

Do not stay here - there are much better options for the money! The rooms were not very clean, the shower was broken, the fan was very noisey and looked like it was about to fall down. We asked for toilet roll and was told that we needed to provide our own. There was no protection against insects and we...

This homestay is located in vicinity of Periyar Tiger Reserve entrance. We had a room in a newer part of the resort, on the 2nd floor with a balcony and hanging chairs overlooking the garden and tiger reserve. Older ones didn't look so nice as those facing the reserve. Room was clean, ok furnished and quite spacious, although it did...

Pro: The rooms were clean. Some rooms at the end has balcony and have good view. The location is walkable from periyar tiger reserve. Cons: Price is too high. The rooms lack many basic amunities for the price like tv, mosquito coils ,any sort of closet, all time hot water availability. The plug points in our room were not working....
