Reviewed January 25, 2013

The stay at silver crest was the only positive thing about my kerala trip.the staff is excellent ,pay very good attention to your needs and make sure that your stay is most comfortable.

Excellent food with manager himself present to serve you.If sealord group wants to surge ahead it is the staff like silver crest which can take them far.

hotel is great,hard to believe its right in the heart of kumily.Rooms are enormous and airy and full of light.At the same time clean and well mainatained except a few wet spots on the ceiling.

A must visit place in thekkady for sure and totally VFM

The Hotel is well maintained with Excellent Food, They have got 2 main cook -1 south Indian and 1 North indian , so you get best of food. Also the staff is very Co-operative. The overall appearance of the Hotel is nice with Big Rooms and a separate Cot where you can adjust ur Child. Its hardly 5 min from the market and 10 mins from Periyar Wild life. Also the other centre for Kathakali and Martial Art is next to the hotel.

The location is great and the exterior of the hotel is wonderful. Its located in the heart of the city with a big amount oil massage parlors located everywhere. The hotel has a nice restaurant and swimming pool as well. The boat ride in the Kerala forest reserve is worth the price but one needs to book well in advance. The Kathakali theater is just next door and is good if you dont mind paying Rs.200 per head.

We were here as a package offered by Kerala Holiday Mart and the room allotted was a deluxe room no: 301 with a living room and an attached bedroom located at the extreme end of the hotel. Wide windows at the back overlooked large trees but below a canal flowing with dirty water. The bed was friendly enough and the lighting sufficient.

The inside of the room was a story of broken down fixtures, paint peeling off ceiling and blocked bathroom drain. The bedside tables were broken. One with the switch board came of each time you removed your charger and the other has the drawer missing. The inside of the cupboard/dresser was dirty and appears to not have been painted since it was purchased.

As far as decor is concerned a thing which struck me as truly unusual was a cream colored bathroom with only the door on the inside painted green. Ha ha.

The hotel linen store was located below our room and from 8 AM in the morning you would get the whole housekeeping staff gathered there for what appeared to be their morning meeting coupled with loud laughter and voices. Guess it was their way of waking up the holiday makers. To me it was quite unpleasant and disturbing.

Visitors please note that wifi is available only at the reception. The soundproofing is very poor.

The worst part about the stay was trying to communicate with the staff who can only understand Malayalam and somehow everyone's clothes smelled of stale sweat.

The saving grace was Aneesh the manager who tried his best to help sitting at the front desk. What he really needs to do is to do a deep dive and carefully inspect each room one day at a time so that he can get to see and feel what his visitors feel.

Would I stay here again? Definitely not unless there was no other hotels available in Thekkady.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the front.

The hotel is simply excellent with very good and caring staff.The hotel is located at a very convenient place with all the attractions nearby like the kalari and Kathakali center and elephant junction. The room was very big with LCD and big Sofa.The food was very good specially the apam and veg stew.As far as hotel staff is concerned ,they were always smiling and ready to help you Specially the manager Mr. ANISH .He was personally asking each guest for anything they required. The Hotel is very near to all the spices shop. Overall a very good family hotel.I would strongly recommend everyone to stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: Even the Basic room was very good

Great exteriors and mediocre interiors to be straight. The hote; sems modern from outside but the interiors are ordinary. Buffet luch and dinner are priced high with limited options. Rooms are very huge and clean but still lack the comfort. Please try to avoid the last cottage as there is also a filthy nallah flowing.

Room Tip: anyone except for the last cottage
