Wonderful location. Warm friendly and efficient front office staff. Much scope for improvement in the rooms upkeep and maintenance. Short staffed and delay in attending room service and house keeping requests. Well laid out rooms. The resort in the backwaters behind the castle is wonderful and makes a extremely picturesque walk.

The hotel looks OK from outside but once you get inside you get the feeling that it is a dated place. The management needs to seriously think about refurbishing the rooms if it wants guests to stay here again. The only saving grace was the location and the food. Service was ordinary.

What used to be a good hotel earlier has now changed completely. Very old fashioned rooms and bathroom. Only thing what is favourable is the location. I would request the management to consider bringing some changes in the rooms.

I took my friend and family for a treat here. It was good but expensive. Food for the cost is not value for money. Some days you get very good food and some days its average. When buffet dinner is served it is good. They need to improve on maintenance.

My hometown is Kottayam and stay around 27 Kms from the city. Most of the time for a decent lunch or dinner I prefer this place. People who are used to eating out in bigger cities will find this to their standard. I normally opt for the buffet which has a decent spread, however majority will be kerala cuisine. This...
