Ok, first and foremost, YOU need to know that the municipality has decided a bypass (fly over) to deflect traffic. Where are they putting it???? On the beach road of course!
So, this charming spot, full of colonial spirit and history will be 100 meters away from this atrocity. It shouldn't deter you to stay there but be prepared.
Rooms have got 6 meters ceiling, beautiful 18 th century beds, just great.
Food is ok, service a bit slow but...with indian smiles.

We feel really sorry for this hotel because it's grounds and the adjoining beach have been overtaken by a huge construction site for a new flyover, adjacent to the hotel and will overshadow it when completed. We had booked 4 nights but only stayed 1. The one redeeming feature was the upstairs restaurant which served some quite outstanding south Indian food

.Enchanting jewel of a hotel located on the beech road in Alappuzha. Built in the 1860s for an English Dignitary, it has traditional dark wood furniture and very comfortable, spacious room with high ceiling. The swimming pool is in a lovely courtyard, framed by tropical plants and trees. The restaurant is open air, up a spiral staircase, with a view of the sea. The staff are exceptionally friendly and eager to make your stay very comfortable. They can arrange Backwater trips in your very own converted rice barge, where you will be served lunch, as you amble your way through the Backwaters.
The only downside of the hotel is the flyover being built along the beach road, although it didn't bother us.

By accident we came to this beautiful oasis just on the beach road to have lunch. They serve chilled beer and really good food, the staff is super friendly and the ambience is awesome. We came the same day again for dinner.

Very beautiful building, rooms are very large, nice swimming pool, and very good restuarant. The beach across the street is a very big beach Indian style, no bathing suites, and unfortunately there is constructin going on in front of the building. Staff is very nice and helpful
