Claus, his Indian wife and family, could not have been more welcoming. A clean spacious room, fresh drinking water from the tap and a magic garden make this a haven of peace. Eat their home made bread, drink coffee from their own beans and just relax. I recommend Claus garden to travellers seeking peace.

We stayed at Claus Garden for 2 days in November 2011. We enjoyed the place! Claus is the German host living in the same house. The house is big, and well maintained. Same goes for the garden. They serve a good german breakfast and coffee from the garden. Its walking distance to the city center. I would recommend this place...

We stayed at Claus Garden for only one night (unlike the two we planned) because we found the owners so un-welcoming. While it is a beautiful and well-maintained building with well-decorated and spacious rooms these are not so special in the area; nor are they value for money at the prices charged. The real problem with our stay was that...

wolkenklaus, Owner at Claus Garden, responded to this review

we are sorry for this guest, he was very demanding. Our breakfast can be served only after 8am because the eco eggs and eco milk etc comes at 8am earliest. We offered tea and coffee plus fruits at 7am, but this guest could not accept our possibilities and became unfriendly. We are very friendly with our guests, but sorry, we...

Claus Garden was a very nice finding in our trip to Kerala. The rooms were very spacious, clean and comfortable. The mosquito nets provided had some small holes, though. It is in a quiet corner of Kumily in Periyar where you can stare at stars by night. Breakfast was very good (though not included in the price) and they don't...

First the good. The rooms are spacious and lovely in terms of decoration. Bathroom was clean. There were several problems with the rooms, however. First, mosquito nets had several holes in them, which kind of defeats the point of the nets. Second, there were no fans in the room, neither on the ceiling or standing. The weather was cool enough...
