“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

I visited this hotel in our 10 day Kerala adventure. This hotel was part of the makemytrip package and enjoyed our stay. The AC worked properly but one thing it was missing outlets which wasn't a big deal at all. Breakfast next morning was great.

This is one of the good hotels in Thekkady. Service was good. Location is also good; just five minutes away from Mudra Kalari & Kathakali centre. its definitely good to stay at Michael's Inn.

Lot of Parking space. Centrally located nearer to tourist attractions and with very nice and clean hygienic restaurant who serves very tasty continental food. Rooms are spacious but bath rooms are old and supply are limited. God budget hotel with pleasant staff. Overall hotel is neat and clean and worth the value.

Room Tip: Stay away from road side.

This hotel is in a great location - moments walk into the bustling town and yet quiet within the hotel. Rooms were dated but very clean and had everything we needed. Beds a bit on the hard side! Reception was very good and made sure we had everything we needed (even bananas and toast for our onward journey). Wifi access was free in the lobby. We ate in the restraurant a couple of times and the food was very good although expensive compared with places in town (and you need to pre-order as it takes time) - still it was nice to have something other than curry! Would be nice if they could create an outdoor seating area. The area around the volley ball court is used as a bit of a dumping ground but could be cleaned up to provide a nice garden area. For most its just a one night stay to visit the national park (another story) but worth spending a couple of days here to experience what the town has to offer.

Recently been to their hotel restaurant for lunch on the way back from Kerala houseboat trip. After waiting for 30 minutes got the seats for the family. one of the dish we ordered was curd rice for the kids and it was terrible. They just don't know how to make simple yogurt rice and rest of the food was not bad. I just want to to talk to the chef or the manager and they just don't seem to care and no response from the server. would not visit this place again if I ever pass through Thekkady.

We stayed there on 29th Oct 2013 thro' make my trip . Rooms are made in very odd triangular shapes so it's very uncomfortable for 2 persons. Service quality is good. Food is also good. Staff is courteous and humble. Location is also very convenient and located near market area . Beacuse of small and odd room shape it was a bit bitter experience.

Hi,

We have stayed in this hotel in our latest trip to Kerala,which was booked by makemytrip for us.We have left one shirt in the wardrobe of our room, and it had a memory card containing our trip pictures.

We requested the hotel to have a check in the room for the same, and return our belongings to us .We were ready to pay the courier charges and even requested to just find the card for us as it has our sentiments regarding the trip.

The response from the hotel was not positive and friendly at all.They didn't seem to help us. and continued defending their own staff people.We expect a more responsible reply from them, and were shocked to contact them for the same(getting our things back seems a dream to us now).Normally all good hotels volunteer to return things to their guests.

Dear Nishith,
We at Michael's Inn would like to Thank you for choosing to stay with us during your trip to Thekkady. From you comments we gather that you had a rather indifferent experience while staying with us. We have conducted and internal inquiry regarding the issues raised by you. We would like to politely remind you, Sir, that the items that you claim to have left behind by you, in the room has not been located by the staff. An extensive search was done within the room and outside for the claimed articles and the articles could not be found. Sir, you cannot expect us to return an article that has not been found in our property. If it had been left behind within our property we would have been only too happy to return it back to you. Sir, I humbly suggest you look at or write to the other places that you have visited. I'm sure you will find it else where and if at all we locate your belongings in our property, I assure you that we will get in touch with you and send over the articles to your designated address. I hope you understand the situation.
Thank you.
