A little hidden gem. Such helpful people. Great Kerala breakfast sitting on balcony overlooking forest. Easy walk or tuk tuk to forest entrance. Right in middle of town but tucked away, so is peaceful. Would definitely book it again.

Stayed: February 2014, traveled solo

Rented 2 rooms and stayed in this hotel along with 6 friends. We booked this hotel directly with the owner Mr. Shibu. Rooms are big, clean and spacious enough for a big family. Washrooms are big, fitted with Geysers and neat. This home stay is nicely located near the Periyar forest entrance and very close to the shopping market. Mr. Shibu is very courteous and goes out of his way to help us with our necessity. We requested him to book us a Jeep for Jungle safari and the Jeep was there on time with an excellent driver who was also very helpful and courteous. There is a restaurant opposite to the home stay that does room service.

We had booked the room for only 1 day and we had to vacate by afternoon. He helped us by providing a small room to keep our luggage till evening.

Ideal Stay for those who want comfort at a affordable price.

Room Tip: First floor rooms have a balcony to sit, relax and view the forest. Ground floor rooms too have a balcony but you will not get the Forest view.

Since we were staying for only one night, we decided to try and stay in this homestay. It was more like a lodge, but the rooms were very spacious and clean. The switches were neatly labeled and the bathroom was neat. You would get hot water too. There is no kitchen, but they would serve tea and coffee to your room. The owner Mr.Shibu was a nice person and helped us carry the luggage during the check-in and check-out. The rooms had the view of the Forest reserve, but all the properties on the right side of the Lake Road would have the same view. Overall a good homestay with all the required basic amenities.

Room Tip: Take the room on the first floor for a better view of the forest

Pros:
1. Very economical. When you are planning to enjoy the jungle and spend most of the time in jungles, why waste money in costly hotels?
2. Cleanliness: very very clean
3. Room view is very good. Bed is comfy, spacious room, beautiful attached balcony.
4. Location: in Market on main road, near to Jungle main gate and ticket booking centres, however from the rooms you would feel that you are staying at a secluded place amidst jungle.
5. Owner Mr Shibu is very helpful regarding rooms, arranging things, communicating in english and advising about trips.
6. Hot water, tv, wi fi( sometimes weak in room, but available in balcony).

Cons:
1. Non AC rooms, so might be problem in summers.
2. No room service/ intercom. So asking for drinking water and other things is a problem. However if you are not a complaining kind of people, who likes adjusting to situations, you would be good with it.

Overall: Good value for money, Clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: room 5 has best view.
