Having read the reviews of Malabar House on trip adviser I was a little apprehensive about our stay here, but it was absolutely lovely.
The rooms all seem slightly different but we had one on the ground floor with our own little courtyard garden. The room has everything you could want, but also retains the Indian style, which means you get fairly chunky bits of furniture, like the incredible wardrobes with ornate doors. The bathroom was a little ordinary but perfectly adequate. Special mention though to the bed - it was incredibly comfortable and we slept like babies.
We liked the central courtyard which housed the very welcome swimming pool and also had tables for outside dining.
We did have dinner at the hotel on one night and had been tipped off to stick with the seafood rather than the attempts at 'fusion' cooking. This tip off seems to have paid dividends because the food was delicious - yummy fish curries and grilled prawns.
So all in all, a great place to stay and we actually wish we'd returned here at the end of our trip rather than staying in the Leela in Kovalam.More
