The rooms are spacious, clean and we always had hot water when we wanted it. The breakfast s were a highlight with freshly brewed coffee, home made bread, home made peanut butter, date syrup and a medley of... More

Five star breakfasts start the day, lovely big spacious clean rooms, really friendly people who are always ready to answer your questions and help you with onward travel. Great atmosphere and the sort of place you decide to spend an extra few days. We had lovely walks and the highlight for us was to ride an elephant

My girlfriend and I loved this place. Simply put, it felt like a home away from home. It is also nice in that it is on a hill isolated from the traffic noises from town. A beautiful place to stay, and loved the homemade peanut butter, jam and coffee! Recommended without a second's thought.

It was a toss up between the Lonely Planet suggestions for Kumily (aka Thekkady, Periyar) and I'm glad I decided on Claus' place. Seeing the lovely room I was put in and how peaceful it felt there I immediately decided to stay for two nights instead of one. Off road parking for my motorbike was a plus as well. I... More
