We stayed here for two nights... The property is good, well maintained and staff courteous. Unfortunately the hotel got sealed after the first night by federal bank leaving the tourist in a fix with services getting impacted. This implies an unprofessional management who allowed bookings to be done despite being aware of problem brewing... The hotel took full advance for...

Rooms are large and comfortable, grounds are beautifully groomed, wonderful quiet setting with quiet pool at the back. When our driver turned off the main road from Munnar to Thekkady, I thought that we we heading to some run-down place for the night. As usual, we were pleasantly surprised when we were warmly greeted at The Elephant Court Hotel.

We really liked Elephant Court, felt it had a bit of atmosphere and style compared to other places our agent had booked us into. I really enjoyed my swim in the pool, and liked being near to the small town. We were able to go to Kathakali dance and do some shopping. We had a lovely a la carte dinner...

Stayed here for 2 nights with my wife. Perfection location in thekkady which is a small town. Plenty of nearby local restaurants and tourist attractions such as elephant safari and periyar national park. Hotel itself is billed as 5 Star however the room we had was more 3-4 star. Bathroom was basic with amenities, tea/coffee and water bottles provided daily...
