“Average hotel with good location”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

We stayed at the hotel for one night. The hotel is average but has a great location. Situated by the Ashtamudi Lake, the room had a great view. The room and bathroom was big, but some maintenance is required. The place is a couple of minutes drive from the main bus station and boat jetty. We did not have any food at the hotel, so cannot comment on that. However, the service needs to be improved.

Overall, we had selected the place for its location, and this budget hotel meets the expectations in that area.

The hotel is located at the banks of Ashtmudi lake. Got some nice views. Just 2 minutes drive from Kollam Bus stand and KTDC Jetty. Large size rooms with equally bathrooms but not properly maintained, yet better than what one would expect at the given price.
Stayed there for just one night. Arrived by tourist ferry from Alapuzha at 6;30PM and departed early morning to Kanyakumari so can't comment on service, Restaurant was there but didn't take any food.
Overall experience : Good. Great value for money.

I did my kerala trip in December-2012. Our Kollam trip falls on 31st december. We thought some special arrangement will be made. Hopeless. But its okay to accept it. But we have started our journey from periyar and we spend sometime at Kumarakarom. We reached late at Kollam at 7.30 PM. They donot offer us any tea although we badly need that. Also near shop is around 1 Km away from hotel. The hotel location is superb. But the hospitality and staff are poor. You can find my two repetative complaints in their complain book both on 31.12.2012 and 01.01.2013. But so far I did not receive any phone call from KTDC. The food is bad. Somehow Myself and my driver got a very good restaurant in Kollam and purchased some food item. Also regarding boat ride do not ask hotel fellows. If you have a cab just go to boat jetty and one can easily find a boat for sailing. The Hotel can be marvelous only staffs need to be trained.

Room Tip: Take second floor rooms for better views of lake

Decent Hotel. The rooms we spacious enough & we were place in fantastic location with a view of the lake from both the rooms. A variety in food items is expected. In general service was very good. However room maintenance should be given more attention.

My friend stayed in this hotel. The only positive is that it is close to Bus/Train station. Dead lizards on the floor, Stains on the bed spread, staff dressings. Terrible walk to bus station - Dirty back water, plastic bottles every where, no street lights. Staff are hopeless - So didn't try the food in the hotel. It is a shame for KTDC. Don't even think of staying in this hotel. Will update with pictures.
