On entry the property looked ok. We were welcomed with a drink although No greetings by the staff. The bedsheets and upholstery looked dated, needs upgrade.But to my surprise the dinner buffet was good as well the breakfast {hot idli's and crispy vada's}.The food at the restaurant was delicious and hot but there was no option of a la carte.Staff at the restaurant was attentive.The pool was opposite the restaurant and so was not at convenient place to swim and was also too small.The hotel was at the center of the town and very close to the spice shops and other restaurants.Ayurvedic massage at the hotel wasnt great you have better options like Rangerwood which are better.Over all an average property.It will be better if they upgrade the rooms and put clean bed sheets{I prefer sparkling white}. Good for budget travellers.

Hotel is good , ambiance is fine, room was also good but the only draw back was the staff at reception is non cooperative and arrogant. The most important thing lacking is SMILE on their faces when they welcome their guest

Room Tip: Hotel is good but the staff is not

My trip to thekkady was excellent. Even though it was summer, the weather had been pleasant. C At the resort, we were given the jungle cottage which was good, all the amenities were available. The food was just basic but the service was impeccable. The staff was exceptionally polite and helpful. Also, the property with it's lush greenery was beautiful. It was overall a wonderful experience.

In my Package its been told that its Jungle lodge room, but there is no such ambience in the entire hotel. Its nominal hotel, where there is no such arrangements are made. ok category to stay in these hotel. Food quality is not so good, better to have outside food.

Room Tip: Dont take rooms neer to swiming pool.

It's a small and lovely property. The jungle cottages were very nice and comfortable.. Beware of the monkeys when you keep the balcony open though.. It's in the middle of the market area and still peaceful and quiet. The service is very good and food good enough. Pool was clean and good. It was raining but staff very helpful.

Room Tip: Take the cottages rooms on 1st floor, or rooms near pool..
