“EXCELLENT ACCOMMODATION AND SERVICE”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

We were totally of 4persons myself, mom, wife and my 4 year daughter and we stayed at Kerala House for three nights and were absolutely pleased with the stay. Location was excellent only about five minutes walk from the gate of Periyar National Park. The scenic view from your room porch is excellent you can see the Periyar forest sipping some tea and watching exotic birds flying by. Rooms were really big, clean, freshly renovated and reasonably priced. As the rooms are facing the forest, you won't get any street noises at night. The family that run the place are very friendly and the service was first-rate. It's a very charming, peaceful oasis amidst the crowds. Shibu was an excellent host he advised and organised the entire trip for us with no problem at all. If i revisit Thekkady this will be the place I will stay again ! Thank you Shibu for your excellent Hospitality.

This homestay is situated in a wonderful quiet and scenic location with balconies overlooking the National Park and the new rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean with modern fixtures and fittings. The property is also located in a safe and convenient location in close proximity to a great range of restaurants and shops. It is also a pleasant walk to the city centre and I found the locals and shopholders to be very freindly and helpful - a great place to spend a few days sightseeing and relaxing.

Shibu, the homestay owner couldn't be more helpful and professional and willing to make any sightseeing recommendations and tourist information available. This property deserves top rating in any travel guide and during my five weeks travels in both South and jNorth India Kerala House was the best accommodation I stayed at.

Room Tip: Every room is a good room.

I have nothing negative to say about Kerala House
- the rooms are spacious and spotless, with hot water and large bathroom
- Shibu the owner is incredibly helpful, he organised everything for us
- great location easy to walk to restaurants and shops
- rooms have balcony overlooking part of the national park so you can spot some wildlife while you are sipping tea on the balcony
You must stay here if visiting Thekkaddy!

The location is very convenient. The view from the rooms is amazing. Shibu the owner and his wife are excellent hosts. The rooms are spacious and clean. Shibu helped us out with the tickets of shows and safaris. Close to reasonable cafes so hunting for good places to eat not required.

Room Tip: The rooms with balconys have a great view.
