Chrissie's is a nice and comfortable hotel in a peaceful garden with lovely views from the balcony. We stayed there with our two teenagers in a huge family room, which was in fact more an appartement with seperate sleeping rooms. Staff was very friendly!

Stayed here for 3 nights on a recent trip to Kumily. Owners and staff were really friendly and helpful from organising taxis, to making sure the auto-rickshaw arrived on time to make our boat trip and border trek in Periyar. Rooms were quiet, bright and spacious with an excellent balcony. Bathroom was ok, floor could have been cleaner. Close to...

Chrissie's was one of the most comfortable hotels we stayed at during our two week vacation in Kerala. Excellent Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, conveniently located across the street from an excellent café and in a peaceful garden setting with lovely views from our balcony. We only wish we had a chance to meet Adel and try the restaurant but it...

Very nice hotel in a great location close to town, you can walk to the important places, but location is fully enclosed in trees, making it feel like you're outside of town, very quiet. Restaurant food is good, rooms are clean, bathroom is nice with western toilet. Owners/managers are very nice and helpful, arranged local taxi and show tickets for...

We stayed for two nights and a day here. The location is easy to spot and the hotel has fairly good ambience. The little 'touches' like the paintings on the walls, the decor, the book swap point, tastefully decorated rooms and a tiny garden takes our breath away. Some construction work is happening around the place and was a bit...

We stayed at chrissies for a total of 8 nights and loved every second of it! The rooms we stayed in were beautiful with attention payed to all the small details and the balconies offered a nice spot to chill and watch the monkeys.

Really nice hotel. It's a quaint, friendly place that would suit someone looking for a mountain retreat than someone looking for a luxury hotel. The rooms were all adequate, we stayed on the top floor so had wonderful views through the trees. The staff are all very friendly and the monkeys that visit are so cute! Really nice place in...

Thekkady was our second stop on our 3 week trip to South Kerala, and looking back, Chrissie's was one of the very nicest places we stayed at. We arrived to a warm reception and were quickly booked in. To reach our room, there was a short walk from the reception/restaurant building through a breathtaking garden with a gazillion different plants...

This is a different hotel. If you go there with proper expectations you will be delighted. The view from the room is like you are in midst of a jungle. Even in daytime you hear the typical insect sounds you would hear late nights in city gardens. The view from our balcony was of trees and trees - nothing else....
