Our stay here was ok.But I was dissapointed compared to the fantastic reviews it gets, We had to move rooms in our two night stay (which I knew at the time of booking), both were large and clean but a bit cold and laking in atmosphere and comfort. Both were also a bit noisy as the other guests seemed mainly...

Wildernest is a small B&B close to the Main Street, on the road to the Periyar Nature Reserve. We were warmly greeted by staff in their smart uniforms and our room was spacious and clean. They have few rooms and you get to see everybody in the lobby/breakfast area accessing the wifi. We had the front room above the office/breakfast...

They say “never go back”, so it was with some trepidation that we returned to the Wildernest , two years after our previous visit. This time we were accompanied by two friends, who we’d bored with our glowing reports of Kumily’s best hotel. Would it let us down? No way. It was perhaps even better that we remembered. The rooms...

This was the most basic hotel of our trip but it was still clean and comfortable. The only reason to go to Thekkady is to visit Periyar Tiger Reserve we spent 2 nights here but I would recommend just one night. Walking in the reserve at dawn is a real highlight the quantity and variety of wildlife is amazing, we...

We arrived at 6.30am from Munnar (had to travel early to get to Thekaddy before roadblocks were put up because of a strike) and our room was ready for us! Quite basic but our room was the biggest of all the hotels we stayed in Kerala. Our balcony was accessed by stairs from inside our room, large and very private....

The managers tend to focus on the foreign guests only and found a difference in behavior between us and them.This is the first time i felt in my country. 1)There are no Indian breakfast options . 2)There is no room service 3)Managers tend to explain accommodation rules to Indian tourists in a rude way like they don't understand.While the foreign...

Set in a quiet part of Kumily but within easy reach of the town. Our room was spacious and clean and had steep stairs up on to a balcony which was in the top of the jack-fruit tree in the centre of the courtyard. Apart from the monkeys we watched the fruit bats from the bamboo forest opposite circling around....

The BIGGEST room i've ever stayed in! Clean, super comfy, great bathroom, hot water, awesome place. Thekkady seemed like a pretty small place and I think we hit the nail on the head between price, location and comfort. As the room was huge it was really reverberant so some of the outside noised were amplified in the room. Earplugs are...

The hotel is spotlessly clean and offers good value for money. The rooms are good, the breakfast delicious and service faultless. We stayed in the room on the upper level, which was huge... even with three adults sharing it... and had a balcony above. The location is central and getting around is convenient and easy. I would definitely recommend the...

Nice nest across the street from the wilderness. Immaculately clean. Rooms are huge. Good for family. Internet available 10-10 in lobby. Only tea & cake available. Breakfast good. Somewhat helpful for program.
