We stayed here for several nights and really liked it. The room was large and clean (very important but difficult to find sometimes in India on a tight budget!) and the owners were very friendly and helpful. My wife and I were unwell for a couple of days whilst here, and Rama and his wife were lovely - looking after us, bringing us tea and toast etc. There were also some troubles in Kumily while we were in town (some issues with Tamil Nadu over a dam) and again the owners were very helpful in advising us on when not to go out!
This place is literally on the edge of the jungle - so it is about a ten minute walk from the town - monkeys come down to 'play' most days and you can hear lots of other wildlife close by. Otherwise it is quiet and peaceful here. We would recommend this place if you are in Kumily.
