“Best possible staff!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

Green Garden Cottage is a really good place to stay though it's cheap. The location is not the best, but it's not a problem walking to the park. It takes you around 30 minutes to walk to the entrance of Periyar Tiger Reserve, but there's plenty of tuctucs on the way.
The rooms are fine and it's possible to take a warm shower.

The staff is amazing. The place is run by to guys who will do there best to make you comfortable and make sure you have the best time possible. They can answer all your questions about Periyar and help you arrange transportation to and around the park.
They also cooked delicious traditional Kerala breakfast and dinner for us.

Only reason we can not give you 5 "stars" is the location.

Thanks for a great stay, guys!!

Lars and Niels, DK.

Room Tip: We stayed in the lodge closest to the reception. From the porch the wifi connection is really good.

It was a good time to be in Green Garden cottage. Thought to find the way to the cottage was difficult as the roads construction is in progress, Mr. Ishwar had helped us to reach perfectly. The place is good as it a calm n quiet n nature oriented place. Will enjoy the beauty of the real cottage with nice ambiance. Iswar was great in all his services. It was not a peak time in thekkady so me n my family had a calm n quiet atmosphere. Hope u will keep the good works.

I really liked the rooms the way they maintained and i really appreciate Eshwar who is the owner of this cottage. He never says no for our request and he is really helpful all the time. I felt like i was staying at my own home and breakfast was also good.

Wow!!! What an excellent hospitality shown by the staffs. My family enjoyed the stay to the extend that they felt missing the family while leaving. 100% of our feelings can't be expressed in words, just need to feel it in person. Thanks team to make our stay such a memorable. We miss u a lot.

The cottages were really good, very spacious and maintained very clean. The general manager there was really helpful and he guided very rightly on all the places to visit including the right timings and we could cover all the places during our short stay due to his guidance. The manager was also kind enough to offer us use the tree house since it was empty during our stay time.

We stayed at the Green Garden in January (my partner and I and 2 children) for 3 nights. What made the Green Garden a great place to stay in Kumily was the warm hospitality, helpful tips, sense of humour and enjoyable conversations with the managers Santosh and Mr Eswaran.
Nothing was too much trouble, no request too difficult and they where eager to ensure our stay was made as easy and enjoyable as possible.
We enjoyed the quiet location of the Green Garden which is an easy 5-10 minute walk from the town centre past coffee plantations, children playing and village life.
I must also congratulate them on their yummy breakfasts. An abundance of food and the choice of Western or Indian breakfasts made for a great start to our day!

I was very kindly welcomed by the two guys running this ressort Santosh and Eswaran. The resort is very quiet and nicely situated. I had an unfortunate fall and had to sty for five days in the care of thes people. It was realy an unforgattable experience, they nursed me, feed me and entertained me like there own brother. So This a plus recommondation, pse visit them because you wont regret.
