“Nothing special”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

Room was big enough, but shabby, and the water situation not great. Restaurant acceptable. It looks like it could be ok, it it was spruced up and the staff a little more helpful ( although they were ok!). I just got the feeling they were cutting costs to get the most out of you.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Thekkady is an amazing place but this hotel is a black spot. Service does not exist here. Staff at restaurant are just ignorant and does not want to help at all. You have to find a staff to place your order and again to follow up on your order. They will bring water bottle but not glass, they will bring food but plates, they will bring juice but not straw. These are just some examples. We had duplex, room and furniture was so old, it was full of dust everywhere, all the rooms have double bed with a huge gape between two mattresses!!!!! They dont have iron at property, they don't provide face towel or napkins!!!! These are basic requirements for any hotels. Anyway list goes on...we had our food outside

We went there on the recommendation from local guide but this is the place where one would surprise by lack of manner and courtesy .restaurant is the worst part of property in terms of services and food. Horrible place still found many westerners around.

This is one of the old hotels of the city and provides you with all comforts you would be looking forward to. I chose a room of with wooden floor and it was on the first floor. The view is great and its a great value for money. Rooms are very clean and also the restaurant attached to the hotel provides good tasty food. Only thing that probably the hotel owner should look at is not to allow a noisy scene at night when all the drivers and starts chatting. It somehow disturbs the tranquility the otherwise ambience provides.

Room Tip: Try one at the top having wooden floor
