“Not much Grand about it”
Reviewed 23 November 2011

We traveled to Thekkady for our first marriage anniversary and stayed in this hotel for one and half day. We booked a non-AC room.
On arrival we were offered welcome drinks and the room was ready. So no waiting time to checkin. The room was quite decent and spacious but lighting was a little low. There was no view available from balcony as there are other buildings on each side.
Bathroom was also decent and clean but there was some distinct bad smell coming from it.
The restaurant is not so big and if there is big group then service gets delayed a bit.
Though the food quality was good and better than other places which I have visited in Kerela.
I would suggest if you stay there then try kerela paratha and American Choupsey.
No hassles in checking out but no credit cards when I was checking out.
The hotel is in centre of market and other activities
Overall a decent stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms for the back side hotel. Probably you would get a balcony view

I stayed for two nights in November.In my opinion that is easily long enough in Thekkady.
The hotel is well placed in the town and within easy reach of the wildlife sanctuary. Beware, in the rainy season the main wildlife in the sanctuary would be leeches.
The rooms are of a high standard and bright, with a modern ensuite that has a very good shower.
The people in reception are pleasant and helpful, and there is free, decent speed, wifi.
Breakfast was acceptable, though no better than that.
I found no real bad points worthy of comment.

It's a nice clean city hotel located very near to the market, Periyar lake and Kathakaly Dance exhibition centre. The service is good and their rooms are really clean, spacious and bright.
The market around is one of the best place to shop spices and nuts.
Their staff had good English and language was never a problem. The breakfast buffet was sumptuous and tasty. All in all, a very nice medium priced hotel.

I visited this hotel in mid-october 2011, and had a really bad experience. This hotel is understaffed. The same person who was serving us in the restaurant would come for room service. So all of the time there was a major delay in anything that was ordered. Food was always served cold due to the lack of serving staff. The 2 ratings are for the food which was fair. Would advice those going to tekkadi to look for other hotels.
