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...

Stayed 2 nights this simple, Mediterranean style hotel. Cafe with Mediterranean food but very slow service- food was good. Bedroom very simple, no tv, A/c or fan; felt a little damp and a fan would have been welcome. Wet room, hot water- (had to run water for a while) Dirty glasses in my room. The rooms are set back from...

What an excellent location! We were greeted warmly by staff and taken to our bright, clean room with balcony on the third floor (lots of steps!). We could see for miles and the views were fantastic. The staff were there to help wiith anything, from organising taxis to advising on location and what to do. The only gripe was the...

We had a great room right at the top with amazing views. The room was clean and even had an actual warm shower (the only one I had in India!) The staff were so friendly, everyone was always smiling and couldnt do enough to help.

The rooms here are basic but have everything you need. The best highlight is the service. Chrissie's husband/partner (?), Adel, is on hand when most guests check in and his calm demeanor is a great welcome from the crazy roads. We got sick while in Thekkady and had to stay an extra night, and the staff went out of their...

A friendly, comfortable, clean and stylish hotel set back from the road among trees in a pretty garden. The place has a peaceful airy feel with indoor and outdoor spaces to enjoy. Staff there were very friendly and welcoming and always helpful to us when needed in sorting out our plans. The food in the restaurant attached is excellent with...

Chrissie's is simply the best place in town, it is a gorgeous place! Spotlessly clean, beautiful yoga studio that you can use any time, warm water, amazing gardens where wild pigs and multi-coloured tree squirrels can be spotted. Everyone who works at Chrissies is without exception professional, dedicated and very friendly. The food is delicious and served in a delightful...

Nice rooms with balconies overlooking a ״small forest". Its a clean place with very friendly staff! You can see monkeys from your room... Chrissie is very helpful and friendly. When out of the room, dont forget to close all windows. Otherwise, expect a monkeys' rave :-)

This is the perfect place for nature lovers. The rooms are tastefully done, and surrounded by a lush garden which is very green and very well maintained. We stayed at one of the ground floor rooms, which meant that we also had a small patio to ourselves outside the room which had 2 cane chairs and a table. We spent...
