Stayed there on 22.10.22 for one night. The resort was good in its looks, but no hand towels were provided, exhaust fan was not working in bathroom, no tea coffee maker in the room, though provided on request, web was found on the door of bathroom, bathroom was not fully clean. Staff was supportive and cooperative. Breakfast was good. Location is very good, very near to many attractions. Needs improvement and can be a very good resort.

The best and very quite hotel. Almost all the important theaters just 5 minutes from the property. Food is excellent and service is at top. My voucher had two room bookings but the manager gave us three rooms as it was available.

The place is very quite and interiors are charming. The welcome they had given is really a good one. Recommended for stay in Thekkedy.

I have to emphasize, the service was outstanding. Alan went out of his way to accommodate my needs during these COVID-19 days, always maintaining the protocol. The rooms are clean, tidy and spacious, with a picturesque view of jungle and misty mountains. The resort is in a perfect location for all activities in one's Thekkady itinerary. Unfortunately, due to self-quarantine, my stay was within the confines of the beautiful room. I can't wait to come back to this elegant resort with my family.

Elephant Route is in the prime area and close to all the activities in Thekkady. The size of the room we were given was pretty big with a balcony having a nice view. The room was very quiet and clean. We also liked the welcoming attitude of the staff. The breakfast was good. The main factor is it's location. It is very near to all the activities such as Martial Arts, Kathakali dance, Elephant tour and also Periyar Lake. We had a very pleasant stay here.

We did not have hot water in the bath, the shower had no pressure, when we ordered a simple cheese sandwich, they said their kitchen has no cheese and the grill is out of order. The people answering the phone cannot understand what is being requested and keep hanging up on you. Their menu has sandwiches listed but the manager takes no responsibility for misleading their customers . They kept forcing us to order from the buffet menu.

Poor people's skills, no attention to detail for their customers and overall would not recommend anyone to stay here.

Dear Guest, Greetings to you! We thank you for your valuable feedback. We have discussed your comments at length internally and have carried out detailed investigations on the issues raised. While we know that no amount of explanation cannot compensate for your unpleasant experiences, we would like to state our perspective on the important issues. The swimming pool that was highlighted on goibibo was a technical default from goibibo team . And my personal apologies for the same , since the resort could not meet up with your expectation . As we are a new resort there were certain errors we faced, and we have rectified most of them . We have added wifi in all rooms and public areas we have rectified the issues with the lift and now it is working properly we have added our staff strength we are also adding our resort amenities . Swimming pool will be functioning soon . Let me clearly state that we are not trying to justify our mistakes. We apologise from the bottom of our hearts for being unable to meet the high standards in experience we have set for ourselves. We are looking forward to seeing you again at Elephant Route Thekkady as a resident guest so that we can make your Elephant Route thekkady special & memorable. Warm Regards, Alan Managing Director
