Facilities & Services : Lawn service, Beer & wine parlour, Treks through woods, boating inside the wildlife sanctuary, plantation tour, elephant rides, money exchange, car hire, Bicycle Hire, Badminton court, laundry, doctor on call.

Periyar House is a nice place to stay. Ambiance of that place is good. Food was delicious. The rooms in the hotel were well maintained and the interiors were also neatly carved. Location is excellent. Overall it was a nice stay. hotel is good one is like a houseboat as there is backwater everywhere outside.

Price range: INR 900 - 2200 incl. Breakfast and Dinner Location: Inside the Periyar Tiger Reserve Best Value For Money hotel within the sanctuary. Ideal for nature lovers, and those who want to do the various forest treks, morning boat rides etc, as it is just 5min walk away from the jetty and forest info centre. Hotel also does the booking for the boat ride. Rooms are large and clean, staffs are very polite and courteous. Nights are serene and quiet except for the captivating sounds of the jungle. Several wild animals can be seen on the hotels property early morning and evening eg. birds, butterflies, wild boar, sambar, nilgiri langur, giant malabar squirrel, nilgiri marten etc. You can also take nice walks along the densely forested road to and from the entrance gate. Only drawback is that the food [dinner] is bland and nondescript. Their chefs should stick to simple local cuisine which they would probably make well.
