The rooms here are basic but have everything you need. The best highlight is the service. Chrissie's husband/partner (?), Adel, is on hand when most guests check in and his calm demeanor is a great welcome from the crazy roads. We got sick while in Thekkady and had to stay an extra night, and the staff went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of, using their personal cell phones to call our travel agent when we had to rearrange plans, and providing solid recommendations on what to do and where to go. The price of the hotel is appropriate for the room quality, but the service is on par with a five-star hotel. And I don't say that lightly -- I've stayed in five star hotels. Wifi is a bit spotty at times, and usually weak. The restaurant serves good food but it's a bit limited. The hotel is clean and has lovely views, positioned in some nice gardens. Overall, very glad we stayed!
