“Sandra Palace Thekkady- Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

We are an elderly couple and went on a budget tour of Kerala. We stayed in Hotel Sandra Palace on 17th September,2012. We are moved by the courtesies shown by the hotel staff on our arrival at the Reception as well as on departure. The rooms have dream like facilities and view and could rate them to a five star hotel room. The location of the Hotel is at Tea point opposite an ancient Church, left side leading to the Lake and right side to the main Market. We were very overwhelmed by the courtesy and offer for help at every stage. The house keeping and its staff are outstanding in performance. The breakfast and dinner in its restaurant is also exceptional in quality and promptness.
We were supposed to check out at 11.00A.M 0n 18-9-2012 but due to strike against price hike of Diesel in Kerala were stranded. The Hotel staff allowed us to stay till 3.00p.m. without charging any thing extra which we will always remember.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are large and offer a good view.

I visited Thekkady and lived in this hotel for 1 night. It was very bad choice to live there. Quality and taste of the food was very bad. We just had snacks and it was terrible so did not eat there any dinner and breakfast.
Rooms were also not very clean and bathroom was no exception.
Though the location is very near from the Periyar Wild Life Sanctuary.

We had visited here twice for Dining purpose, since it is located at primed road junction in Thekkady. The overall First impression as it loooks, of Hotel was positive and so our expectations were too for food. But definitely not upto mark after entering inside the Restaurant. The menu shown some reasonable option, but attendant shown full courtesy while informing us availability of only 1-2 option which we were forced to opt for since limited option of restaurant & shortage of time. The hotel seriously lacks ambiance and staff courteasy for their guests. It was mid of our week long trip of Kerala and definetly worst among hotels & restaurant we had visited in Kochi, Munnar, Kumarakom & Thrkkedy. A guest who expect a lot while in enjoying best of kerala in best season. Worst we had lost here our beautiful umbrella, thanks to one of restaurant staff.

The hotel was very clean, even the bathroom was very clean and disinfected. The room service was good and little bit poor sometimes. This hotel is in the main business center of Thekkady. There is a church exactly opposite to the hotel. The Periyar lake is very near to this hotel and there are a lot of home made chocolate shops in this location. The breakfast and dinner was quiet good. Overall very good hotel.

My stay at Thekkady was made at Sandra palace. Its in the heart of Kumly ( I think this is d main town place of Thekkady). Rooms were clean. The only thing which I think the guest needs at Thekkady is AC. Its not as cool as Munnar. So opt for an AC rooms. I recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Look for an AC option.

The hotel is centrally located at Kumily just half kilometer from the bus stand and the town equally... Its easily approchable, has good hospitality, clean rooms and quiet ambiance.. The rooms are spacious, North indian food served is very good.... The extra soft beds just adds to make it a perfect hotel to stay...

People are helpful and the management is prompt in actions... Overall a good place to stay at economical rates...

Room Tip: The rooms facing the road are good.. you get to see a view and its pleasantly breezy when you open t...

We had booking for 1 night 2 rooms for 5 people with 1 extra bad. When we was doing check in hotel people stared argument that only two people can stay in each room or we have to pay extra for a person which we had already paid to our travel agent and they had did all booking for us.
This hotel people made us set in the lobby for half an hour with out giving room, after talking with our travel agent they agree to give us room, this soiled our mood.
Now this is in night when I asked for extra bad they told me we have to pay extra which we had already paid to our travel agent. here once again hotel people wasted our 1 hour that also late night they even did not had any respect for their gust, service was not good at all, staff people had no manners how to talk, nothing was good and this spoiled our trip and every thing was horrible….. My humble request to those who are planning to stay here plz think once you take decision coz u may spoiled your own trip like I did …. One more thing this all was very embracing
