We stayed at Chrissies during a family holiday in Kereka. The staff were most helpful and bent over backwards to be of service. The hotel location is ideal both for taking the short walk into town and accessing the the nearby Lake for the wonderful boat trip. On staff advice we took the early morning boat and were rewarded by...

lovely rooms, landscaping, service, cafe...can't say enough wonderful things. The managers were extremely helpful as well...would go again in a heartbeat. After some grisly experiences in India I was pleasantly surprised by excellent and congenial service.

We stayed at Chrissie's hotel for one night in late December at the height of peak season. The hotel is well-located on a quiet side street and is only a short walk to the centre of town. The rooms (we stayed on a third floor room) though somewhat basic, are spotlessly clean and well-maintained and have everything that you need...

It was Christmas and naively I hadn't booked well in advance, but Chrissie and Adel were so helpful even though they could only put me up for one night. Great people with a genuine interest in their guests and their well being. They went well beyond the call of duty to help me (and others). The rest of the staff...

No room service, No TV, No elevaors If you are OK with these, you have the best hotel in Thekkady. The location is in a small quiet street but walk able distance to the center of town. The room and toilet are very clean. The bed sheets, blankets, towels etc are the best I have seen in a hotel. Adel,...

Stayed in Chrissie's for 3D/2N in Dec'12. Neat & clean rooms, though basic and well maintained hotel, very green and well maintained surroundings. Do not expect TV, phone, room service etc as that is not the focus of the hotel - the effort of the owners has been to keep everything serene and quiet. Ask for the top floor rooms...

On our trip to our honeymoon after kulamava in idduki we reached tekaddy. We got the Chrissie’s hotel and cafédetails from the net. We had asked for the room which would give us more privacy.

Stayed here a while back with my wife. The hotel is nice enough, the gardens are amazing and Christie is lovely. The only problem I had was with the price! For a fan room and old grubby bathroom I would normally pay about 400-600rs. At 1500rs I can get a flat screen telly, aircon and a way nicer room in...

I think too much Yoga decrease the competence of judging. Giving 4 or 5 stars for this accommodation doesn't represent the truth. Old rooms, old furniture, old building. This house needs a badly needed renovation. On the stairway we had to step over the excrements of the monkeys. No mosquito nets in the rooms. The price of 2500 Rp extremely...
