"Good Accommodation and Stay"

5.0/7
Posted 2 Feb

The Ambadi%2C Hotel was my stay in the month of December 2016 when I had been to Thekkady(Periyar). It was my holiday trip trip with family. The place where I had been to was good. My hotel location was very good because of transportation facility. I would rate the appearance of the hotel as very good. The staff at the reception was average. I booked my room direct at hotel. The services which were provided in the hotel were good with quick response. The rooms at the hotel were good because of facilities and decoration. The food in the hotel was good as we can have so many options as according to the season.

"Good hotel with poor services"

5.0/7
Posted 5 Jan

We had been to this hotel in the month of December and were a family trip for a holiday. The hotel was good but the service was poor. The destination was very good. The location of the hotel was excellent since it was convenient. The ambiance of the hotel was excellent as well. The booking services and reception services were good and there were no delays in check in and checkout. The room was good and were maintained neat and tidy. The staffs were not co-operative and quick responding. The overall services provided at the hotel were poor. The food and drink provided by the hotel was average.

"Overall experience was excellent"

7.0/7
Posted 10 Dec, 2016

The overall experience of the hotel was excellent. The cab facility was not provided by the hotel. I had booked the room by directly. The Wi-Fi facility was not provided in the room. I didn’t taste the food from the hotel. The parking facility was available. I went to this hotel by my own vehicle. The check in and checkout was on time. Geyser was there in the room but TV was not provided. I would like to recommend this hotel to provide the vegetarian food facility. The best part of the hotel was cleanliness.

"Good hotel but average services"

4.5/7
Posted 25 Sep, 2016

The hotel was located conveniently hence I did not face any difficulties in finding and the surroundings both in interior and exterior were good. The staff members were average and the appearance of the hotel was good. The food at this hotel was good in taste and quality but it was expensive. The room allotted to me was good with all the required amenities. The hotel did not delay while checking in and checking out process. The hotel was worth for the money.

"Location of the hotel is also quite pleasant"

6.0/7
Posted 9 Feb, 2016

Hotel surroundings are pleasant and Inside the Hotel Facilities are very nice. Location of the hotel is also quite pleasant. Felt like staying for a long time but because of less vacation time we stayed for a short time. There are very nice sightseeing places in Thekkady(Periyar) like Tea Gardens, Spice gardens, waterfalls and reservoirs. Once can really stay here and let loose yourself.

6.0/7
Posted 28 Mar, 2007

The Ambadi is a lovely cosy hotel, although the restaurant staff is a little lazy and tries to avoid you (in order to avoid doing any work). The location of the hotel is perfect because it allows lovely walks into the town and around the market-place. The tea was lovely though and the room was just gorgeous (it was simple suite with an attic-bedroom and a living room). The tv was a little old and the furniture could have been better, but we werent there for the tv anyway. The view from the balcony was lovely and just having tea in the morning perched on your balcony with the black-tailed langur hanging around in the trees in front for a view as well.. was lovely.

"Service can improve"

4.6/7
Posted 9 Jan, 2012

We did not have great experience here, but I think it was mostly because we went during the Christmas week, the hotel was house-full due to which they were having problems in everything. But if you have designed a hotel for 100 guests I think you should be able to cater to 100 guests at any point of time. The rooms were nicely done up, but we had to call them repeatedly for towels, water, soaps. At no point of time we got the hot water. We had to get up early in the morning at 4.0 am to buy the boat cruise tickets, so there was no hot water. Then we came back in the afternoon at 1.00 pm there was no hot water. We were told that hot water is available only from 6.0 am to 11.00 am. And in the evening. Moreover you have to let go a few buckets of hot-tap water for the hot water to come. And if no other guest is using hot water at that point this could be even be 10 bucket-full of water just to be thrown. For a person like me, it was waste of water and time. Also when we were going for cruise early morning, we could not see the steps as there were no lamps. The hotel is based on jungle theme, so they are trying to simulate it like real jungle, but it does inconvenience the guests, if they don’t know this beforehand. The restaurant was also over-crowded and there was a long waiting and all our order was served at once. Usually we have chapattis as we finish, but here they brought all the chapattis together. And when we needed a few more we had to again wait. Taste-wise the curries were nice. Thekkady happens to be the producer of spices, so it was quiet natural.

"Best hotel for stay "

6.5/7
Posted 15 Mar, 2016

I had good experience in this hotel. This is very attractive and pleasant hotel for stay. The service of this hotel is good. Front office is very attractive. This hotel has reasonable price. The manager of this hotel is really very good person who gave us booking of Periyar National Park, Periyar National Sanctuary and also gave tickets of Kathakali dance program. Food quality is really very nice. All types of dishes are available in this hotel. Location is also good. It is only 1 km from city center. Rooms are spacious and pleasant. The speciality of this hotel is it is made of wooden material. Parking space is more and has an attractive garden. Overall, it is small but sweet hotel. I like it.
