Coffee Inn
Ranked #23 of 133 Thekkady B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 20, 2014 via mobile

I was on a business trip and when I first saw the place the facade reminded me of the movie Psycho. Having said that... the place itself is an adventure. The owners have dressed the place with little items that you will find at every turn. The rooms are cozy and comfy and meant for a max of two but they are very well done, and excellent use of space management.

The view from the rooms is incredible with wild animals from the reserve roaming around the area. There are number of places to eat around the area and the inn itself is starting a restaurant.

I would suggest to anyone to go and stay there. You wont be disappointed.

We arrived here from searching online, and luckily they had a room available.
the room was spacious, gorgeous, clean, with a fantastic view of the reserve in which we saw bison, deer and cows roaming, as well as a long tailed monkey in coffee inn's garden!
the staff were helpful and friendly.
Location was great, we could walk within minutes to the entrance of the tiger reserve and aslo into the busier area for shopping and more restaurants.
Would recommend

Beautiful place when you are in Kumily. If you stay in the hotel or in a bungalow in the garden nearby, it's all so nice to sit right in front of the jungle and to wake up with the sound of the birds and the monkeys. Highly recommended!

The Hotel is a 20 minute walk from the Kumily Bus Stop (which also happens to be RIGHT at the border of Tamil Nadu where you can catch buses to Madurai, TN by just crossing the state border line. (It is like night and day - Kumily is built up with shops and restaurants etc, there is only decrepit stands on the Tamil Nadu side!)
We got Coffee Inn's information from the Lonely Planet guide. I rarely use the recommendations from the book simply because USUALLY once a hotel is listed, they DRASTICALLY increase prices from the ones quoted in the book, simply due to the business they get from the listing. However, prices for hotels online were VERY overpriced. So I called this one up since it was recommended and was quite surprised that the room rates were still VERY reasonable!! And MUCH better than what I was getting online. Kudos to Coffee Inn for not turning Greedy.

The service was great. Upon arrival we were shown the room we originally booked, plus others just incase we would rather upgrade. We were quite happy with the room we booked, so we staying in that one. Beds were a bit hard and there was no A/C, but in early March, it was not needed. The room we chose was in the very back overlooking the reserve by itself, so the WiFi connection would not reach, but you only had to go to the lobby for connection. It is extremely slow anyway, so it is not worth it to choose a room in the main house just for WiFi service in your room.

The entrance to the park is a VERY short walk down the street to the reserve.

Lots of restaurants and shops in the area.

Room Tip: The standard room in the back overlooking the reserve is a nice escape.

Charming little place we stumbled on by accident. Staff were very attentive, room was a nice size, clean with a good view of Periyar Tiger Reserve. A delight to find hot running water and a TV with satellite, well located and great value for money. We were told the restaurant was closed as they were being refurbished but that was not a problem as we found the Coffee Garden - just a short stroll down the road. Would definitely recommend.

The staff were really friendly at the Coffee Inn, helping you with all sorts of things. However, the website and leaflet had the impression it was tucked away in the jungle, so bear in mind that isn't the case when booking. We stayed in the treehouse which was nice but quite open to the elements. Fortunately, a musquito net is provided.
