We arrived to a very warm welcome after a 5 hour taxi journey through rubber and tea plantations. This small and very friendly hotel is in a great location on the edge of the town and within easy walking distance or short tuk tuk ride from it's many attractions. The rooms are simple yet spotlessly clean with large balconies which...

We had the pleasure of staying with Chrissie and her husband (And wonderful staff) for two nights for Christmas and my birthday. I had the daunting task of organising a short trip away for myself and 8 other people and thankfully found Chrissies hotel. After I made initial contact Chrissie was very helpful in making bookings for all activities we...

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.
