We stayed at Chrissie's Hotel for a week on recommendation from a friend. The hotel was excellent in terms of location - in a quiet leafy spot overlooking Periyar Sanctuary, but very close to the centre of Kumily. We had a 3rd floor room with a stunning view. The room was bright and airy, lovely balcony and was spotlessly clean....

We had a pleasant stay for 2 nights at Chrissie’s last month. The rooms were basic and clean, but had no TV. Hot water was available in the evening which was great. We got to know that they have closed their restaurant due to some financial losses. But breakfast was available in the morning. However there was no buffet/menu and...

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. ( we also saw an actual porcupine a family of wild bores and a mouse deer!)...
