Good location and good food was provided

4.0/7
Posted 13 Oct, 2014

It was conveniently located. Appearance wise, it was maintained and redecorated. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. The only problem was that we asked for deluxe room but allotted normal room to us. They provided pick up and drop facility to us. Cab provided was good. Room was spacious, neat and clean. View was not visible for the room. TV, freeze, AC, etc. Were not there. Only bed was there. There was no requirement for any extra facility. Quality and quantity wise, food was good. Both veg and non-veg food was provided by them. No activity was there like swimming pool, massage center, gym, I visited there in September. It was a honeymoon trip. As a destination, Thekkady was below average. Location wise, it was very good. It was also very good. Booking was done through travel agent. Booking process was average. Services of the hotel were also average. Room was below average. Activity was worst.

Best hotel for stay

6.5/7
Posted 13 Feb, 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.

Ethnic wooden style cottages and rooms . 3. Lavish bathroom with Bath tub . 4. Balcony with nice natural views . 5. Friendly staff. 6. Hotel arranges Bharatanatyam and marshal arts shows for guests . 7. Awesome food . 8. Very close to Periyar National Park Cons:-. Room service is below average.

Service can improve

4.6/7
Posted 6 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. 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. 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 overcrowded 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 .

Staying there was good experience

5.0/7
Posted 22 Sep, 2014

I had a good experience in this resort. I travelled there by public transport. I was able to reach the hotel comfortably without any problem. Location of the hotel was good. Thekkady as a destination is average, not good and not bad. Inside and outside look of the hotel was good. Appearance and ambience of the hotel was very good. Booking was done through travel agent. There was no problem in booking and no delay in check in and check out time. Booking and front office people were good. Service, staff behaviour, hospitality or everything was fine there. Staff people were very helpful with us. I went there in January 2014. It was a relaxing holiday. Room was good with all amenities like TV, etc. Room was spacious, neat and clean, and maintained. No view was there. Room and its facilities were good. They did not provide any complimentary breakfast there. We had food outside the hotel. Only coffee and tea we took there and it was good. No activity was there. Activity part was good. No suggestion for hotel improvement there. I have referred this hotel to few people also. It was value for money.

Beautiful appearance and nice location

4.9/7
Posted 12 Aug, 2014

My overall experience was too good from this hotel. I stayed for two nights in this hotel. Location was nice. Hotel was located at near to the silent place. Pick up and drop facility was available but it was chargeable. Appearance of the hotel was beautiful. Booking and front office was careful and cooperative. Staff behavior was friendly. Services were fast and on time. Rooms were well furnished, neat and clean. TV and other basic amenities were available. Food was tasty. I took just veg food. Activities were good. Thekkady place is okay for travel. It was an adventurous holiday with my wife. I will recommend this hotel for travellers.

Economical hotel with smooth check-in

5.6/7
Posted 3 Jan, 2016

Ambadi is on the main road to Periyar Tiger Reserve in Thekkady. Built in Colonial style, the hotel elevation would appeal anyone. It is a half a kilometer walk to the main entrance of the tiger reserve Offering variety of food, it's restaurant is often crowded - primarily during lunch. But for that they offer wide - really wide variety of food. Pricing of food is quite economical. The front office is quiet warm. Check-in was smooth. They have 3 variety of rooms : Cottage, Deluxe and Duplex I stayed in the Duplex, which has a mezzanine floor with a double cot and a living room in the ground. To be frank it was bit dusty. I got bit of cold when I checked out of the hotel and the wash room was not great. Daily room service is done only if you instruct. Otherwise they leave it as it is. It looks like the Cottage would do for most of the guests People who are cost conscious looking for value for Money can consider this place.

A classical luxurious hotel

4.5/7
Posted 15 Apr, 2015

I went to thekkady for relaxation during my first honeymoon. When I saw the pics of Ambadi hotel, appreciate its classical look and luxurious room. The Kerala traditional furniture was awesome. The location was also very near to bus stand and very popular hotel it was when I asked. The management was very active and cooperative. The garden around the hotel is well maintained and quit clean. Tasty and variety of food was available. Rooms, bathroom and area around the hotel was very clean. I am very satisfied after two days of stay. Everyone should enjoy the stay in Ambadi.

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.
