"Kind staff & average food"

*Value for money. *Nice place to stay in jungle with family for leisure trip. The place is very peaceful and calm with nice weather. *Guests are not allowed to go outside the hotel area after 5. 30 PM which might be a drawback for some. * You could see many animals like Deer, monkey, birds, etc & even elephant if you are lucky. *Hotel s....

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 am....

"Nice relaxed stay"

6.3/7
Posted 4 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 6 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 7 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.

The best located modestly priced hotel within the sanctuary. Rooms were clean and big, ours was a superior room with attached sit out overlooking tall trees filled with exotic jungle birds in the mornings and evenings. Staff are friendly and courteous, always smiling. Very convenient for enjoying the Periyar Sanctuary, especially the nature trekking activities and morning boat ride. There are many trails nearby to be explored and sambar, wild boar, giant squirrel and nilgiri langurs are often inside the hotel compound.

Posted 8 years ago

We thoroughly enjoyed our unique stay inside the wildlife sanctuary at the reasonably priced Periyar House. It is ridiculous to pay the inflated rates of the other 2 hotels, the Aranya and Lake Palace, considering one is out of the room most of the day. Even though it is a govt property, the staff were as courteous, friendly and helpful as in any private hotel. The housekeeping boy came running to find me just to show me a Giant Squirrel on the hotels tree, merely because I had evinced an interest. Staying inside a sanctuary makes a big difference for nature lovers. Nights and early mornings are interrupted only by the sounds of the jungle. No cars, no music, no human noise at all. We used to wake to the sounds of hordes of Indian Pittas foraging for crumbs from our sit out. Nilgiri langurs come to the hotel trees in the evenings, and we saw several wild boars and sambar on the road just outside. The hotel is best located for those who take the 7am boat ride and other eco tourism activities such as the early walks, bamboo rafting programme etc. The hotel does the booking for the boatride.

"Excellent place that one should try "

7.0/7

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.

"Swimming pool and garden view available "

5.5/7
Posted 2 years ago

No problem in finding the hotel's location. It was located in the city. I went there by a hired car and it took one and a half hour to reach the hotel from Airport. Hotel's staff was good. I went there for boating. I stayed there for 4 days. They used to clean the rooms daily. Room allotted was spacious and good. Swimming pool and garden view was available from the room. Appearance wise, it was very good. Bathroom was neat and clean there. TV, AC, geyser or everything was available there. I had food there and outside also. Hotel's food was very good. Non-veg food was very good there. Check-in was done quickly. I used all activities there. Sightseeing trip was arranged by the hired car. Overall, it is value for money. I would like to recommend this hotel to all my relatives. They should maintain the same quality. I visited there with my family. The best thing about this hotel was the boating there.

The overall experience was superb. I stayed at the Periyar House with my wife for 2 days. The hotel is situated inside the periyar forest, hence the environment around the hotel was that of a forest. The climate was also very pleasant. The rooms were also neat and clean. The food served at the restaurant was very tasty and lavish. We enjoyed our overall experience.
