“Nice place to crash and refresh for the next day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

This is the fourth time I am staying in this place, I always keep on coming back to this place whenever I have some business to stay overnight in Kochi. Out of which two times I stayed with my parents.
There is this nice lure to this place, It is this non flashy, no-frills format just the opposite followed by the traditional hotels. Somehow this place fulfills what I needs- clean sheets, water and toilet. I would like them to stick to this format forever.
The rooms are covered in canopy right in the middle of the city. It costs reasonable too. I would recommend this place for anyone visiting Kochi.

Room Tip: Jun July take you can enjoy the monsoons right from the verandah..

It feels great to have stayed in this homestay away from the buzz and congestion of modern day life.Also away from the glitterati and materialistic fivestar and sevenstar hotel culture where everything and anything is available at après of a button.This homestay has a very homely feeling about it and you can sense the same as soon as you reach the reception.Once you walk to your room you can immediately sense the serenity of the surroundings.You feel that you are in an estate away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The rooms are very neat and clean,with all the adequate facilities like a 5 star ie television,split level airconditioning,geyser for hot water.For laundry,tea,coffee,and snacks or anything else you require you need to walk to the reception which is a welcome break from the routine 3 star/5 star calling bell culture.
If you need anything more to be arranged like a travel round the backwaters of Kerala or a visit of the city the staff always eager to help you with a smile always will ensure you are well looked after.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good

A nice and pleasant stay. Beautiful environment with full of trees and birds. I stayed here for only one day and happy that I have selected this place. The only disappointment is there is no restaurant is available.

I stayed here for one day only, on 21st of March 2014. Not very far from airport, 30-45 minutes (courtesy traffic jam due to ongoing metro work). Nice garden and well maintained. Rooms are clean. But no intercom, that's a disadvantage. No restaurant, but tea/ coffee available from staff canteen. They provide menu card of a nearby restaurant for room delivery. But Vegetarians can try nearby Aryas hotel, it's good. Mr. Denny of Palm Grove is very helpful and always in service with a smiling face. Recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kochi, if he/ she prefers a homely atmosphere over 3/4 star.

the facilities were good and very clean.. but at 1700 (for a/c room) it sounded a little pricey... there was no intercom facility in the room... otherwise there was nothing much to complain about... a quiet and beautiful place...also lulu mall is at a walkable distance from here.. which ian added advantage...

since i was with small kids, i was searching for homestays. This homestay being without owners living there, seems to be commercialised one. Overall service is satisfactory . i was disaapointed to see that toilet soap was not provided . Although I had not demanded since i carried my own. When i made final payment at the time of leaving, I saw kits in their office cupboard containing necessary toiletries which seems to be offered to every guest but.........

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for sparing time to post your review on Trip Advisor.Palm Grove service villa is not a home stay - it is a service villa. It is not mandatory for the owner to stay in a service villa. But I visit the villa everyday to personally look into the day to day upkeep of the property and to meet the guests personally .Regarding the toilet soap, it was an oversight.Sorry for the same .If you had asked , we would have given it immediately. I am glad to know that you found the overall service to be satisfactory.

Warm regards
Francis
