Hotel: What an excellent 2 nights stay at Wildernest! I stayed during the weekdays, so the hotel was not so busy. The hustle and bustle of the main road didn't concern me as it was quiet and serene inside. There is a small space where they serve English breakfast on a chargeable basis. It was an ideal space for me to work. No restaurant inside the B&B but tea/coffee are available on request. The hotel has a parking facility, right outside the main gate. Room: The well-appointed room was clean and comfortable with its own private balcony on the first floor. Hot water was available. The architecture of the room was beautiful and antique with rocks stacked in walls. I feel the mattress could have been comfier and not firm. Rest everything was excellent. Staff: The staff is friendly with detailed knowledge of local tours. We learnt a lot about the local tradition in warm conversations with Manager Mr. Rollin and another person (I forgot his name) who was always there. They went over and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Location: The hotel is conveniently located. Periyar Forest Entrance (bus stop) and information centres are just a few minutes walk away. There are plenty of restaurants, shops and Ayurveda centers within 2-3 mins walk. Internet: Free wifi is available. Also, I was getting a good network speed on my Airtel and Vodafone cards. To conclude, highly recommended hotel in Thekkady! Surely I will come back soon with my family! :)

I am a birder and came to visit Periyar Tiger Reserve in search of the Wynaad laughingthrush with my guide Danish Trogon. For the night stay, he brought me to this property. Frontage of the hotel and the way the name board was finished in wood mesmerized me. I realized at once that this hotel will turn out to be DIFFERENT! The lobby was well laid out and uncluttered and the walls were adorned with bird pictures and paintings, making it perfectly suited for the sensibilities of birders. The courtyard of the hotel and the rooms have been very creatively designed, giving them a very natural feel. Rooms are spacious and very well maintained. The window sill provides the best place to sit around! Each room has a private terrace also. Staff well groomed and very courteous.. A very enjoyable experience, staying here.. A number of ideas can be borrowed from here for use elsewhere! 😄

We loved our 3 nights stay at Wildernest, everything a b and b should be, and you can get tea/ coffee cake and drinks almost anytime. The staff are friendly, helpful, on reception ( and it's adjacent kitchen) all the time, and will give advice / help on most things. Just 5 mins in one direction from the park experience bookings office, and 5 minutes other direction to entrance, Wildernest has perfect location. Rooms are quiet, very clean, simply furnished and spacious. We had own balcony, but used communal one above reception ( with tables and chairs), but watch out for monkeys! Breakfast good, juice, drinks, omelette and fruit. Their plum fruit cake available all day, unless it runs out, if you want midday/ afternoon treat. Few minutes walk to the many shops and restaurants of kumily. Excellent and really good value, only about 10 rooms, so book early.

What a great 3 night stay we had in a lovely double height room with its own balcony. Breakfast and available snacks are superb, there is no restaurant here but plenty within 5-10 mins walk. Wildernest overlooks the periyar park but is convenient for town too. We can't fault it. The staff are friendly and efficient - working under Rollin, an excellent manager. The rooms are clean, stylishly though simply furnished (comfortable), and quiet. Garden and communal balcony are pretty and the breakfast area shady and cool. What more could you want? Only 10 rooms but it's a real gem.

The Wildernest has maintained its high standards since the last time we stayed there. All of our party were extremely pleased with the standard of accommodation, the breakfasts and most of all the care and consideration of all of the staff. As it happens, that was the thing we needed the most. They, all of them, went way beyond our expectations in looking after all of our group and we were extremely grateful to them for that. We will, when we can, come back to stay again and to say once more 'thank you'.
