“average hotel and uncomfortable surrounding”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

i stayed at K K residency Payyannur kerala. hotel usjust OK. It can not be treated as four star as the hotel claims in its website. My be it is better of the lot in that town
rooms are good. but maintenance is very very poor. no option to put two pin plug to charge your mobile etc. two pin doesnt enter the plugs provided in the room. remember to carry multi plug with you.The hotel doesnt keep multi plug.
there is a bar in the same building adjacent to entrance lobby. i found it risky to park car overnight as i saw some fully drunker person trying to open my car. i had t raise alarm and the counter person along with security pushed him off.
the passage road to hotel is narrow ful of pedestrians,, autoriskhaw etc. so if you are going with big sedans may find it difficult to enter the and exit.
counter staff is cordial.
Overall it is fine.. dont keep expectations of four star while staying.

Room Tip: Lift may not work. so you may have to use stair case

Had the chance to spend a night and two days at this Hotel located in Payyanur.
The hotel is located in the center of the town and is easily accessible and is well known with the local people.
The Rooms were one of the highlights, well maintained and ambience is perfect for relaxation.
The Restaurants and Roomservice were too good.
Heard of the roof top bar, but missed it and ended up ordering Room Service and yes the service was decent.
We were a group of friends who took two rooms, 307 and 315 the former having a balcony just looking onto the next buildings roofs and some coconut trees.

I would refer this hotel to any one looking for a short stay @ Kannur, Taliparambu or Payyanur.

The overall service and etiquette of the staff was friendly. The only issue we had is of the Minibar which was not cooling at all .The parking and other services like laundry and house keeping was efficient.
The hotel have 3 BARS , 2 located in the ground floor and one at the roof, so you can expect some 'high' souls in the gateway or in the lift.( the hotel needs revenue right)!!!

KK residency was a hotel that is located in Payyanur, Kannur District. It is roughly 40 Kms from Kannur town - towards Kasargode. KK residency is actually a very good hotel located in an absurd area. The Town of payyanur never did require a business class hotel in the first place, and KK residency should have been located nearer to Kannur main town.
The approach to the hotel is a bit difficult to spot, with a small by way leading to the main gate. The parking can be deemed sufficient - considering that the hotel is not occupied to the maximum at any given time. The one thing that families might find a put off - is the location of the Bar on the ground floor, and one can occasionally see scuffles or our 'high' brethren making their way out from the bar to the gate - hilarious but not something you would want the kids to see. The lobby is Ok in the strictest sense, the staff is helpful. The restaurants used to be well furnished initially, and now a bit of neglect is evident. The buffet lunch - which used to be very good is now strictly average. The rooms are one of the best in any hotel in Kannur district. The beds are comfortable, and the room is well lit and ventilated. Room service is OK. The bathroom is quite big and many have bath tubs and good decor. The dish that I liked most in KK Residency was the Matka Chicken biryani (Malabar), which was the best I ever had. The fish 'pollichathu' also deserves mention. Be sure to check these out.
There is no swimming pool, nor internet access in the rooms. There are conference halls in the upper levels. Altogether a satisfying stay, and good value hotel.
