We spend one week at the Ginger House and we have been really amazed by the beauty of the rooms and the hotel. The furnitures seem to come to a museum and everything is made in the best taste. We would like to thanks the people who work there for their kindness et disponibility. A great moment, we really hope we will come back next year.

I adore this place, the bed is like nothing I have ever experienced, the bathrooms are exquisitely finished with so many beautiful details that have been interrogated into this historical building and the antiques store that is next to the hotel/ part of is something to behold and wander around. I met so many other friendly travellers and location wise this place is where you want to be. hosts are kind and accomodating and I encourage those looking for something special in this area to pay a little more and book a trip that's truly memorable.

We stayed here for 2 nights, the hotel is beautifully situated on the river, each bedroom individually decorated & spacious. The owner & staff are very friendly helpful & nothing is too much trouble. There is also a pool to relax in.

Easily makes the top five on my favourite hotels ever list. Truly memorable. As it says - a museum (of antiques) which makes this likely the only one of its kind anywhere in the world. The ambience is stunning and the rooms incredible. The owner is a delight and sets an example by waiting tables and cleaning them down himself.

This is an exquisite hotel within a museum.Each room is tastefully curated with careful detailing. From the ornate doors to the little personalised toiletries . The rooms facing the sea are brilliant and spacious enough for 3 adults. You’ll lose yourself in admiring each piece of furniture in the room and the art all around you and the state of the art bathroom . There’s so much art to admire in the hotel museum and on the lane. Mr Majnu the owner is an unassuming friendly person and I was very impressed by Allen Francis who assisted with booking and was available for everything from wi fi access to sorting out crayons for my kid.
So glad I picked this place to stay amongst the myriad better known options

We first stayed at this waterfront hotel two years ago since which time we have always wanted to return as it left such a lasting impression on us. Not only is the owner the most delightful man excelling in hospitality as are his staff, but it is the most beautiful hotel hidden in the Jewish quarter.
The furnishings in every room which are all decorated in a unique way with beautiful antiques are exquisite. Luxury accommodation as every thought has been given by the owner to ensure your stay is a a memorable one. Food wonderful as is the river setting.

We waited 20 minutes for a massala chai when it arrived it was Luke warm- they took it off to put in the microwave- at 5 times the price of anywhere else I would expect more. Our food order was wrong and the rice cold. Which is a shame as it was very tasty

We have been to The Ginger House several times since we moved to Kerala 3 years ago. We especially enjoy the ambiance and the pakora's!
This visit we had guests staying with us so we booked to stay in the hotel. It was a great choice! Very comfy rooms, particularly the beds and the most up to date clever toilet! 😀
Breakfast in the morning was sumptuous, our guests were very happy with Indian hospitality.
Thank you Ginger House, we will be back!

The photo of the pool makes it look a lot bigger than it is, but this is easily offset by the rooms being even better than they looked. The hotel has loads of character, interesting art everywhere. It has a real luxury feel and the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and ensure you have everything you need. Someone even went out to hunt for tonic water for us and found some! Like most places only beer and wine is available (a lot of places are dry), so we brought our own gin. The food in the restaurant is excellent. Breakfast is Indian but the great food is one of the reasons we’re here. I’d highly recommend this place.

Very nice ginger theme based restaurant.
Though a bit expensive, but worth experiencing.
A simple masala tea was also very tasty.
Restaurant is near backwaters with beautiful views to capture.
Even they give original ginger as paper weight with bill.
