"Nice relaxed stay"

6.3/7
Posted 3 months ago

A very good place to stay for a day or two. Big clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff and also good service. Food was also OK. Located within the forest area, activities are restricted but we enjoyed the boat ride which was arranged by the hotel without any hassles.

"Nice experience & good service"

5.9/7
Posted 5 months ago

It was very nice experience in Periyar House and really so superb climate. I lived only 1 night so I can't explain much more but I think, it's very good service staff and super reception. But I love that beautiful and natural place. I want to surely live in Periyar again, thank you so much.

"Good place for jungle lovers"

5.4/7
Posted 6 months ago

Good and ideal location for backpackers. Also for family persons. Room was beautiful. Located in jungle. Monkeys roam around you. Sometimes they enter the room. But they don't harm you. As if they are trained. From there you can have your water cruise. Food was mouthwatering.

"Overall, stay is not encouraging"

2.7/7
Posted 8 months ago

Stayed in Periyar House at Thekkady, Kerala. Overall, stay is not encouraging. Cooperation and service of staff is very worst. No proper information for guest from them, it is located in forest area but no control of entry into forest. Waste of money. Guest need to reach by 5 Pm and after 5 Pm forest security will not allow to entry/ reach to Periy....

"Good location & good food"

6.3/7
Posted 9 months ago

Location is very good. You have to reach before 6 pm, as it is located in the Jungle. Night experience is something different compared to other hotel stay. Food is really good. Gujarati food is also available. In the morning enjoying Forest atmosphere and different look. Rooms are slightly small but comfortable.

"A good chance of sighting wild animals"

5.6/7
Posted 11 months ago

Amenities - The rooms are very big, though cleanliness levels are not up to the mark. Other than that, the amenities are quite good. Service - The service is quite average. The room service use to take a long time to show up when called. Advice to travellers - It is worth staying here because of the chances of seeing wild animals. Elephants s....

"Good place and location"

6.0/7
Posted 11 months ago

Good place to stay. Being located within the forest area, moving in and out the area is limited as the forest gate closes by 2000hrs and cannot move out in the evenings. Also going and coming requires tickets for person and vehicle. Location is very good and quiet.

"Nice hotel located inside Periyar Tiger Reserve"

6.1/7
Posted 1 year ago

Hotel is located inside the forest area, its completely isolated from town. The day is good and night is fantastic. Food is good and staff were very supportive. Fantastic boat safari and the look of Periyar River is my wallpaper for many days. It is very good for bird lovers but, we haven't spotted any animals during our safari which is unexpected.

"Excellent place that one should try "

7.0/7
Posted 2 months ago

This is a resort maintained by Kerala Tourism development corporation. This is located inside the forest and so getting in and out has to be between 6 am and 6 pm. So after 6 in the evening, sitting at the entrance all by yourself or at the backyard was quite entertaining. The backyard has a tennis court and some game activities that were really amazing. Still when we cross a bridge at the backyard we reach an open place where we have flowing lake water and in the evening we can see some monkeys, deers on the other side of the lake which is actually the forest area drinking water from the lake. Thoroughly extraordinary. This is one of the place that one should experience in their life. The house even has some indoor games. They do have restaurant inside that serves a good piping hot lunch and a buffet dinner. The staff here were so kind, friendly and understanding that we don't have words to appreciate. They even had bicycles for rent we were told. The rooms are clean and neat. They do change the spread daily.

"Excellent location; delicious food"

7.0/7
Posted 2 years ago

Very good hotel to stay in Thekkady. The appearance of the hotel and the place around the hotel seems as if we are staying very deep inside the forest. Early morning you can hear the sounds of different birds. Walkable distance to Periyar dam. All types of foods available in the restaurant especially Kerala meal is very nice. Excellent place to relax and enjoy.

"Property managed by KTDC "

7.0/7
Posted 3 years ago

I saw decent reviews for KTDC Periyar House and booked it through MakeMyTrip. I was not sure how the place would be because firstly it was a property managed by KTDC (govt. owned) and it was my first visit to Thekkady. But the property turned out to be too good. The first thing that I noticed was there are only 3 properties inside the wildlife sanctuary; all run by KTDC and Periyar House is one of them. The rate for the 3 properties increase depending on the proximity to the jungle - so Periyar House was like the entry point, and the other two relatively more inside the jungle. Another thing which I observed was the space in the reception area, lounge and the aisles - there was good space and lot of air flowing. The check-in process was smooth and the staff were very good. Rooms were neat and clean and spacious. There was nothing which bothered us. The food was good and we had complimentary breakfast as a part of the booking and the spread was good. The only drawback would be that since the hotel is inside the sanctuary, and the sanctuary entrance closes by 6 pm, you have to be inside the hotel by that time. You cannot venture out after 6 pm. For us it was not an issue as we could spend good time enjoying the jungle and feeling the nature close. I would definitely recommend this hotel for people who would like to have a quiet stay inside the jungle, at an affordable cost not compromising on quality.
