We've been to refered to DeanDale cottage, and I've got to say that I was really impressed the moment I saw it, it was like a home, with clean and spacious rooms, I could not have asked for more. The hosts were very warm and welcoming, they even taught us to cook traditional indian food which was a totally amazing experience! They also provide us with touristic informations offered in Thekkadi. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Thekkadi.

We have just been at Dean Dale Cottages and I cannot think of a better place to stay or better people to stay with in Thekkady. Cheryl and her family are very kind and helpful, the rooms are spacious and safe and much better than some other places where I have stayed. The prices are very reasonable and I would recommend Deal Dale Cottages.

My partner and I stayed with Cheryl and her family for a couple of weeks as part of a long trip around India. The room we were given at Dean Dale Cottages was the largest and cleanest we had found anywhere in India for the price.. we were so happy when we arrived, we did a little dance around the room :)

We had called ahead to book and so someone was waiting to pick us up when we got off our bus, even though our bus was very late. Cheryl was really warm and welcoming. She can arrange sight-seeing for you if you would like, and has lots of information on the local area.

Breakfast is here lovely, and when Cheryl worked out that I like to have tea in the mornings before breakfast (I cannot function without caffeine first thing), she brought me, every day, a flask of beautiful chai to the room as soon as she saw I was awake. I really appreciated it. Staying here feels like being part of the family. We were so comfortable, we stayed much longer than anticipated, and got to share in the amazing Onam celebrations.

If you want somewhere clean and nice to stay while you enjoy the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, I strongly recommend you stay here, especially if you are on a long trip around India. Travelling in India can be difficult and draining; Dean Dale Cottages is just the place to go for a bit of TLC!

Just the perfect spot if one is looking for a quick unwind. The massage arranged by the hostess is really good, the hot water at Dean Dale is really HOT and the breakfast is tasty as well. I visited solo this time around and felt perfectly safe. Looking forward to my next visit, next year!!

Room Tip: the rooms at the new house are really nice, comfy

2 friends and I stayed at Dean Dale for only 2 nights but we really had a positive experience...not only because the rooms were clean for a reasonable price, but mostly because the family was so welcoming. They constantly asked us if we needed help organizing anything and offered us lifts if we needed it. I left that place very moved....
