What used to be a good hotel earlier has now changed completely. Very old fashioned rooms and bathroom. Only thing what is favourable is the location. I would request the management to consider bringing some changes in the rooms.

I took my friend and family for a treat here. It was good but expensive. Food for the cost is not value for money. Some days you get very good food and some days its average. When buffet dinner is served it is good. They need to improve on maintenance.

My hometown is Kottayam and stay around 27 Kms from the city. Most of the time for a decent lunch or dinner I prefer this place. People who are used to eating out in bigger cities will find this to their standard. I normally opt for the buffet which has a decent spread, however majority will be kerala cuisine. This...

Bathrooms were dirty and outdated .windows dusty and needs lot of updating. Average hotel not a three star. Food was great and service was excellent. Expect average hotel Back of the hotel was beautiful and very serene bringing a homely atmosphere. Backwaters also bring natural beauty of Kerala. Hope they will update it soon

Dumpy place!!! The bathroom was scary and afraid of getting amoebic dysentery just by being in the bathroom. The restaurant downstairs is awful and food was bad.The bar looked like a dark and dank place where you could hide and never be found because no one would willingly go in there to find you! Run down in every regard. Avoid...

We spent one night there in November whilst on tour. We had a lovely suite with huge comfy bed and nice bathroom but it seems some of the rest of the group were less fortunate.. This hotel overlooked the river and we got a beautiful sunset. Food was good and the staff were very friendly and attentive. One of the...
