"Excellent place that one should try "

7.0/7
Posted 4 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 am....

5.9/7

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.

6.8/7
Posted 8 years ago

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.

6.6/7
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.

"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.

6.1/7
Posted 4 years ago

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.

"Property managed by KTDC "

7.0/7
Posted 4 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.
