We stayed at this place only for a short time of half a day. We were very pleased with the staff. Their reception was good and they were all very responsive. Not too busy when we went so had a lot of personal attention. Though not too many guests were present buffet breakfast was served which's not usual . . There is a gym and a swimming pool for kids and children. The pool was not too deep for parents to leave kids and have their own time The food too was delicious and was tasty. The restaurant was neat and well done up for a romantic dinner. The surroundings, the gardens and the rooms were all very well maintained .
We were planning a reunion of our college roommates and wanted to chillout for a few days. It was my responsibility to find a place and we all wanted to get away from the scorching sun for a few days. I searched for different options and finally found this place with a few good reviews Just based on the reviews only we had booked the place for two nights. It wasn't much difficult to find the place once we reached Vandiperiyar. When we went to front office they said our room was just being set up, they greeted us warmly and was very courteous. As we had a very long drive we were very hungry so decided to have lunch by the time they set the room up So, we went to the hotel. They ambience was really good. Though the outside temperature was over 35c it was very comfy inside, thanks to the wooden and clay tile roofing. My friends who were a little skeptical about resort started to like the place. The food were all reasonably priced and were average in quantity and quality. We actually enjoyed the lunch. The pool was visible from the hotel and was looking dirty the staff told us that it will be cleaned by evening Later they took us to the room midway they told me that the gave us a free upgrade from heritage to royal that was just making it awesome. The staff also told me about the different facility that are available We were surprised by the way the resort was kept so green in such a dry time. There was a big jackfruit tree in front of our cottage and the place was full of flowers. Once we entered our cottage we were just ecstatic. It was a neatly divided room and was very spacious. We all settled in very comfortably. I really liked the wooden flooring and olive shade given to the theme of the room. We couldn't find the AC anywhere and had doubts about was the room selection a mistake considering the temperature outside, but the doubt was soon erased thanks to the classic style of the cottage the clay tile and wooden roofing and the wooden flooring kept the temp well in check The entertainment section was just near by so went in there to check what all was there. There was Carrom, Chess, Table Tennis and Billiard table. We spent a few long hours in there. Evening we hit the pool. We were in the pool till late in night enjoying. The food and beverages were given pool side Next morning, we went in for the complimentary breakfast and it was much more than we expected. There were quite a few items on the menu and again the quality wasn't bad. In between one of the staff asked for the voucher from Make My Trip to see the inclusions. He then courteously told us that we had happy hours offer so that days beverage will be free. Again we were in for a surprise One of my friends tried out the spa and was mighty impressed by the treatment he got there. We were so happy staying there that we seriously considered extending our stay for a few more days. We just didn't want to leave the place. From the resort the places to visit like Eagle rock and Thekkady were all just under 15km so, shouldn't be a trouble for anyone with a ride. Also, I think the travel desk helps you in getting around We all would definitely suggest this resort to anyone who is looking for a comfy stay in Thekkady. We also found a lot of honeymoon couples in there and think they too were having an awesome time there in short this was the best and much needed break we all wanted.
Location was horrible. Food and service made-up for things. Rooms were average though spacious but no ventilation. Take the first floor if you would like to escape from a city into open gardens Booked this resort after many reviews using the sales office of this hotel. The pictures on their website are misleading as many of them are of Periyar wildlife sanctuary and not necessarily of the hotel Location was Mislead ed. When I e-booked, I got a booking confirmation that said, Hotel Springdales, near Thekkady. Actually this hotel is 18 kilometres before Thekkady when you come from Allepey - note that the hotel is actually inside and not on the main road. We struggled to find the hotel for 1 hour as we landed-up at Thekkady instead of Vandiperiyar. My booking confirmation from the hotel did not mention the hotel telephone contact details. When I highlighted this to the hotel authorities, they claimed that the main road was under construction and all sign boards were pulled-out by road authorities Food was the saving grace. Good spread for dinner buffet charged at Rs. 350 plus taxes. Rooms are nice and clean and so are the bathrooms, but the towels are brown (something I don't prefer because you never can make out if they are dirty). Rooms were stuffy as the fan would not work, the fan regulator was spoilt and no housekeeping checks had been made. No ventilation at all. I waited the night to get out There was performance of an hour of an Indian classical dancer, that was the best part in the evening. However the timing was abruptly advanced to begin 45 minutes before the scheduled time, catching us unaware Exorbitant rate of Rs. 6000 per room is what I paid around 28 December 2014 - not worth more than Rs 2000 or so in my view.
I had booked this room by online. The check-in and check-out process was nice. The hotel was located nearby the bus stand. The appearance of the hotel was nice. The provided room was comfortable. The hotel location was nice. The booking and front office was very good. The food quality and quantity was nice. They had provided complimentary breakfast in the hotel.
My stay here with my family was excellent. It is a very nice property rather heritage sort property has huts as well as good rooms. I enjoyed recreation facility there. Swimming pool was good. Staff was very nice. Food was excellent. Only location of the property was not good but didn't bother me as I had a cab to reach there. It was 12 - 13 kms from Periyar, but amazing place to get relaxed.
Springdale Heritage is a hidden gem located on the river banks of Periyar near Thekkady. It is the ideal place for exploring Gavi Eco tourism area. The heritage block and conference hall building ( which was a old movie theatre) is made by British people. It is renovated into colonial style resort by an eminent architect, Mr. Benny Kuriakose. The landscaping is very welcoming. Enjoyed the Passion fruit juice from the resort's orchard. I was lucky to taste Guva too from the resort orchard. My friend who is an amateur photographer was happy since he could shoot nearly 13 types of birds with in the resort area. Kids had a wonderful time at the Swimming Pool. Myself and Wife enjoyed the ayurvedic spa managed by Dhanwanthari. I recommend this place for an ideal holiday in the western ghats of Kerala.
