You will swoon over the pictures posted by the management. Its a swanky hotel by the look of it.
It is built on a very small footprint, leaving a huge courtyard for parking and may be future expansions. The location is way off from MG Road, approach is through narrow lanes and for the view you see only water tanks perched on neighboring rooftops.
The room was very nice, with a comfortable bed and a LCD TV. Bathroom was of good size and toiletries from Biotique. Curtains were nice blocking out any light from the south Sun.
Breakfast buffet was not extensive which you would expect from a premium 4*/5* property. Taste was lacking as well. I had eggs to my rescue. I kept waiting for more coffee powder to get that extra kick from their filter coffee and had to remind them thrice before I decided to leave. That says of their service. Front desk ladies are however are very welcoming and one even escorted me to my room after check-in.
There are much better options in Ernakulam both in terms of accommodation as well as food. But if you need only a plush comfortable place to stay and are not getting anything else, you can go for it.
