Top Reviews of Periyar House
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.
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.
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.
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.
