Chrissie's is a lovely hotel.....off the beaten track in Thekkady. Lovely restaurants nearby and pretty surroundings. The rooms were simple but comfortable. I can really recommend this hotel. It was well worth a visit!

The rooms are small, simple but clean, including a little balcony. Staff is friendly and helpful. It's a little walk into the center (5-10 mins) but manageable. And there are restaurant's / shops in along the stret so you don't have to go far.

We stayed at Chrissie's Hotel for a week on recommendation from a friend. The hotel was excellent in terms of location - in a quiet leafy spot overlooking Periyar Sanctuary, but very close to the centre of Kumily. We had a 3rd floor room with a stunning view. The room was bright and airy, lovely balcony and was spotlessly clean....

We had a pleasant stay for 2 nights at Chrissie’s last month. The rooms were basic and clean, but had no TV. Hot water was available in the evening which was great. We got to know that they have closed their restaurant due to some financial losses. But breakfast was available in the morning. However there was no buffet/menu and...

Chrissie's is a nice and comfortable hotel in a peaceful garden with lovely views from the balcony. We stayed there with our two teenagers in a huge family room, which was in fact more an appartement with seperate sleeping rooms. Staff was very friendly!
