“Budget Hotel, centrally located but small & dirty rooms”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

we travelled to wayanad in the first week of March. We booked Woodlands for 3 days. But the hotel was quite disappointing. Atlthough it was centrally located in Kalpetta but the room given to us was facing road with continous traffic sound. Room was bit small with a smaller washroom. Bed was not comfortable at all. Hotel restaurent service was also poor. So we decided to move to other place in the morning. I will suggest this place is ok for business travel where you need to saty for a night or two, as it is a pure budget hotel.

The hotel is pretty ok, but has the worst restaurant. We went there for the evening snacks and had to wait for over 45 minutes for a dosa for our hungry kid and 2 cups of coffee . when asked they said we were in que and the fellow returned the bill when insisted to make it fast. he said this is the pace they work. The man at the desk was courteous enough to apologise but the kitchen staff could be taught some manners.The experience was enough to spoil our mood for the rest of the evening.

The hotel is located in the heart of the small town of Kalpetta, on the main road. Despite the hotel being more than 20 years old, the rooms were new and well furnished. The staff was courteous and helpful. The food was good. The executive room with air conditioning was Rs 1,500 a great value for money. There is sufficient and convenient parking available. Will recommend this place strongly.

I was spectical until I reached this place. Gem of a hotel with friendly stuff. Not lavish but good value for money. Rooms are decent and comfortable. Location is very convinient. Breakfast was included in room tariff and was yummy. Restuarant is decent but a little too small leading to higher wait time. I would love to go back here and stay again.

we where searching for a good budget hotel. the woodlands fits into our bill perfectly.The place itself is enchanting .we were provided with excellent buffet breakfast in mornings.
Our trip to phookot lake on day we arrive was very pleasing and climate in night was quite chilly yet enjoyable.next day we went kuruva island which was a good family spot, u can spend quality time over there and have leisure bath in the water beds.the very next day we went bansura sagar dam where speed boat facilty is provided ,we spent 20 minutes ride in speed boat which was superb.overal our trip was simply enjoyable.

There hotel at wayanad, has very good facilities and service, we had taken the AC Executive room, they even gifted a complimentary fruit basket in the evening, which was too nice to have.
But if they could have some rooms, with reasonable rates specially for family it will be too gr8, Also to mention that the complimentary breakfast also was too nice and of very high quality.

The Woodlands was recommended by a friend of mine. The location and food at this place was very good.
Booking process: Very simple. Had to call them up and confirm the booking details. Then I transfered the advance deposit via online fund transfers.
Rooms: Very simple and clean rooms. Don't expect a good view from the windows. You would be mostly keeping the windows/curtains closed all the time. Hot water is available throughout the day. Comfortable bed. No full size mirror. 14" TV with a few channels.
Room service: Good room service. 24 hours.
Food: This is the best part. Excellent food. Stick with the local cuisine. Do not try chinese/north indian food. Breakfast was included in the package. Breakfast was ok. Nothing great about it.
Parking: It has private parking. Not much though. Maybe for around 10 cars.
Location: Excellent location in terms of accessibility. It is bang in the center of Kalpetta town. All tourist spots are easily reachable from there.

Overall, a very good place for budget travel. Would definitely go back there.
