We stayed at Chrissie's for 2 nights in April. From the moment we arrived, Chrissie's was fantastic. The staff organized absolutely everything we needed during our stay - from a tuktuk to Periyar, to tickets to a martial arts show, and even Ayurvedic appointments in town. The food in the restaurant was fresh and delicious. The rooms are not air-conditioned,... More

An excellent place to stay with family, it's surrounded by tall trees, has a very good view. Has WiFi in all rooms, restaurant has limited menu but everything is freshly prepared and tasty. Monkey menace is quite prominent so keep your doors and windows locked. But all hotels in thekkady have this problem. Very close to city centre. MR AAHRON,... More

This was our two night stop-over after a 17k climb into the hills! Very nice rooms, set on a hillside so plenty of steps to your room. Watch out for the monkeys - in the trees outside the rooms. We were told not to give them an excuse to come in!! Food was very good and staff very accommodating. Local... More

The hotel is located at walkable distance from the main market but still quiet place. Reception was excellent by the owner himself Mr Adel. Very cheerful and helpful personality. Rooms have front and back balcony surrounded by trees on which monkeys squirrels and birds were easily spotted. They arranged for our local sight seeing even at eleventh hour. The most... More

I only visited the cafe which was lovely, food was great, nice salads and classic Indian dishes. They have a nice chill out area on the roof. Met other travelers who were staying there - apparently the hotel is excellent. I would definitely recommend the cafe for a lunchtime pit stop or a good place to relax in the open... More
