“Kerla Trip”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

I stay one night at this hotel during my Kerla trip.
Location of hotel is good, you can have lot of option for food, shopping , cultural center.
Room size is ok, bed is comfortable.

But service was very slow during dinner. After waiting for more than 40 mins, they gave overcooked noddles. I haven't found dinner here very good.
Apart from this breakfast was good

Location of the hotel is very good. Very near to cultural centre and Periyar reserve gate and Elephant ride. Food served in breakfast was very good.
That apart, the hotel staff remains aloof to all your complaints/requests. They don't know the difference between red wine and grape appetiser. Rooms are newly done but give you creeps in terms of their dimensions(imperfect quadrilateral). If cost is down in priority than quality time then don't book. A tip for all the North Indians visiting Thekkady - if you are hankering here and there for some good home food then Gujarati bhojnalaya is right in front of Michael's Inn,it's cheap and taste's awesome.

The hotel is situated at the edge of the town in a pleasant wooded area. Thekaddy is the centre of the Ayuravedic tradition and the management will be happy to organise a massage for you. Four of us went - what an experience!
My room was clean and airy with a comfortable bed. Everything in the (again clean) bathroom worked - so no problems there. My main memory of the hotel is the staff. Just a really cool bunch of people. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We had a buffet dinner which was excellent and breakfast ( nothing special, but again, no complaints here).
Overall, a very nice place to stay.

Centrally located in the heart of the town, yet peaceful. The service and standard was good.
The restaurant closes at 9.30pm and may have to be considered while planning.

True value hotel and happy to have made the choice by considering reviews on Tripadvisor.

The location of the hotel is very good. There are two places nearby where you can enjoy traditional KATHAKALI dance and marshal art of KERALA. Food in the restaurant attached with the hotel not very good and not bad also. Room sizes are small.
But there was a problem.
We have stayed in the hotel as a part of our tour package booked through ‘Make My Trip’. As a part of the package we suppose to get flower decoration in room with a red wine bottle. But there was no such arrangement. After enquiry hotel manager told that they don’t have any information about flower decoration in room with a red wine bottle etc. They have only information about room booking. I have tried to contact ‘Make My Trip’ representative but they were not responding. So before going please be sure about the facilities to be provided.

Dear Guest,
We, at Michael's Inn, would like to thank you for choosing to stay with us during your trip to Thekkady. We are delighted to learn that you had a pleasant stay with us. Sir, from your review I gather that you had certain issues with the booking of the package. I have re-checked your booking and can confirm that the agent, through whom you had made the booking, had booked with us your accommodation which included a complimentary breakfast. If you had any special requests, these were not communicated to us and hence the confusion. Sir, I assure you that if we had received any special request from the customer, we would definitely have gone the extra mile to make sure that it is provided. I hope you understand the situation and I would like to politely request you to take up the matter with the travel agent. Once again, Thank you for patronizing us and please do visit us again.

We stayed there in the month of Feb2012 for just 1 day. Hotel located at heart of the town. In 2 Mins by walk you can reach local market. Room was clean & well furnished, however, might be the structure of the room looked little congested. When we entered the room there was a sticker saying “Beware of monkeys” I showed it to my wife n ignored it considering it as a prank by the previous travelers who might have stayed in our room. Thought how come monkeys will come inside the room? When my wife approached windows to open them, whollaa…half dozen monkeys were sitting on the balustrade. We never opened that window again :). After the rendezvous with bunch of Apes we started unpacking things. After few min of relaxation, lights went off. Called Reception there was some generator issue. However Mr. Thomas from reception area ensured that electricity will be up soon. Electricity was back after 15-10 mins. This happened 2 – 3 times.

Over all service was excellent, food was good, we haven’t got a chance to dine, however buffet breakfast was excellent. Buffet breakfast including south Indian cuisine like Idali, Dosa, Chatney, Sambhar was at par. Also Egg omelette, Bread-butter, Jam & fruit juice was present on the menu. Overall experience was adventurous & pleasant. I recommend this hotel for all honeymooners :)
