I booked this property only for use for a few hours during the day as I had work at the adjacent Oberon Mall. Was also keen to check out the property which had rave reviews from a number of Trip Advisor members.
Located on a small lane adjacent to MAJ Hospital in Edappally, the property spread over an acre of land looks quite charming. The rooms however are just average though there can be no complaints about cleanliness. For those used to staying in branded hotels you will find this way below expectations. Printed bed cover, poor choice of furniture( moulded plastic chairs etc..) very ordinary bath linen and no room service are all drawbacks....not even possible to have a cup of tea/coffee(the only thing served at the hotel!) without sugar as it is all pre mixed!
Very cordial staff though, especially Mr. Francis who I presume is the owner. Overall, not professionally managed and I would say overpriced a bit. However it is OK for some one like me for whom the location was important and had to use the property only for a few hours.
A bit surprised to see so many reviews on trip advisor rating the property so high.
