We had an absolutely blissful stay at Periyar Inn. The warmth and kindness we received from Bincy and Jobin was unparalleled. Both breakfast and dinner were expertly prepared with so much love. Room was sparkling clean with extremely comfortable bed. Beautifully decorated floral terrace was simply the cherry on top! Bincy and Jobin, your family is beautiful, as is your home which you welcomed us into with such open arms..thank you for everything!!

We really enjoyed our short break at the Periyar Inn Homestay and Bincy & Jobin were the perfect hosts. They were so friendly and accommodating and they are a lovely family. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room was really clean and we really appreciated the outside sitting area. We had breakfast and evening meals and the food was both tasty and plentiful. We would not have a moment’s hesitation in recommendation the place. Thank you!

Simple, homely, no frills homestay with lovely hosts. Close to local station & Periyar Forest Reserve office. Great communication from Bincy & Jobin. Great secured wifi. No a/c but there is a fan. Mosquito net to keep the critters at bay but we didn't need to use it. Had a veg dinner provided on our first night. Lots of places to eat along Bypass Rd into Thekkady. Seating on verandah outside our room overlooking a lusg garden. Good sleep quality. Great home-grown coffee! Recommended.

Very friendly, helpful and efficient. Pleasant accomodation, good location and very nice Indian dinner. What else do you want? So we'll definitely come back here when we are near Kumily. That is, if they still have a free room by then.

We had a truly amazing experience! Thank you very much Jobin and Bincy! Everything was absolutely perfect through the whole stay. Homestay is very cozy, it is literally covered in plants and flowers. It is very lush and green, with lots of birds. There are 3 rooms, a terrace upstairs and small patios with a table and chairs in front of each room. Rooms are very spacious and well equipped, there is always hot water in the shower. Bed and pillows are very comfortable, there is mosquitoe net and filtered still water. Bincy and Jobin are incredible hosts! They are very polite, warm and hospitable. When we arrived we were served with tea and fruit, they helped us to plan our activities and gave lots of valuable advice. Breakfast and dinner were lavish and very tasty! Throughout they stay we felt like at home! It was the best homestay we have ever stayed in. We would definitely recommend it to everyone! We will come back one day for sure!
