Enjoyed the time spent with family, helpful staff

Posted 29 Apr, 2015

We have stayed in this hotel for two days and one night. This property was nicely built and was having a great look. There rooms are having nice interiors and a big bathroom. The staff guys are very polite to us and of helping nature. The manager has arranged taxi for site visits. Food was great and there kitchen specialty was sea food. Had a great stay.

Posted 24 Apr, 2015

It was a wonderful stay. The greenery around the hotel was enchanting. We had the corner room and would like to stay in the same room next time also. The staff was very courteous. The reception we got at arrival was very good. Complimentary breakfast was traditional and very delicious.

Well maintained room and good service

Posted 1 Dec, 2014

My stay in this hotel was in summer 2014. I stayed there with my friends. Staff behaviour was good and they provided quick service. Room was also good and well maintained. Also price of this hotel was affordable and I was satisfied with the quality at such affordable cost. However hotel was a bit away from happening part of the town. I would recommend this hotel if you are going to Thekkady.

Very comfortable stay at an affordable price

Posted 25 Sep, 2014

My last stay in this hotel during February last and I had stayed two times in this hotel in 2013. My overall experience was good. Room was good and very comfort to stay in this hotel with an affordable rate. Room service was also good. It is very easy to reach this Rays Inn and near to this we can have spice market. Good outside restaurant, cinema hall. I used WiFi but it doesn't get inside the room.

Quick services; clean rooms

Posted 9 Aug, 2014

Location of the hotel was not up to the mark because it was situated at far to the town. Inner and outer look of the hotel was nice. Staff behaviour was okay. Services were fast. Rooms were well managed, neat and clean. TV, AC, geyser and other basic amenities were available. Outside view was not available from the room window. Food was tasty. Nothing was available in activities. Booking and front office was fabulous. It was a relaxed holiday with my family. Thekkady place is below average for travel.

Not very well located

Posted 8 Aug, 2014

The hotel is good. The location of the hotel is just beside the bus stand which is noisy. The hotel is at the market which makes the shopping is very easy. The hotel is far from the Periyar lake and wild sanctuary. Visitors are advised not to take the bus stand facing rooms.

Helpful staff; tasty food

Posted 8 Jul, 2014

Overall, my experience was good in this hotel. Location of the hotel was very good. It was conveniently located. Appearance was fine. Rooms were neat, clean, and spacious. Staff behavior was helpful and friendly. Food was available and it was tasty. Varieties were available there in the menu card and both veg and non-veg varieties were served. I faced no problem during check in and check out. I will recommend this hotel to other travelers. It was value for money paid. I went there with my family and it was a relaxed trip.
