I would recommend this hotel to any and everyone who prefers a large clean room and prompt service. We got one of the front facing rooms which opened up to a bamboo forest on the other side of the road. Though we didn't have much time to spent at the room, as we went to Periyar Tiger Resort, where I would suggest you to go early and take the jungle safari walk. the complimentary breakfast next morning was super good and had continental as well! ( For the last 5 days we were a lil bored with the only south Indian BF being served as other hotels in different places around Kerela). The staff are well behaved and smart. The ambiance is good. The location allows you to walk to the local shops and to stroll down and watch the Kathakali and Marshal Art shows which happen a stone's throw away. Do not buy tickets from any tout. Go to the site yourself and purchase tickets in the morning to ensure you get the first row!
Unfortunately this hotel do not have a restaurant... the only downside. However there are plenty of food available around the place. We had ordered beef curry and biryani but that was a super flop, unless you enjoy curry leaves in biryani along with pineapple and kerela spices in the beef as well!!! I would recommend a street vendor who sells friend chicken and Kerela paranthas which is hot, super good and cheap. he is located bang opposite the big Mother Mary statue.
In short Grand Thekkady made us feel GRAND INDEED!
