We went in the off season and in the monsoon time of July. This place is the only place which is situated right inside the periyar wildlife sanctuary and hence the setting is great. Situated right near the boat jetty and almost overlooking the Periyar River, this place looks like an ancient heritage building. We got upgraded into a spacious suite room and it was very comfortable and spacious room with a huge balcony. Since it was almost deserted during the monsoon we got a good deal. The staff is friendly and the food was excellent. They have a swimming pool and the whole place was well maintained.
Most recommended place to stay in Thekkady !
