The location of the hotel is in the heart of Kottayam town . Stayed here as a part of package for conference. When we checked in the AC was leaking . It took some time for the person to come and repair it. The door lock is hard to open and sometimes it is not getting locked from outside. Some...

Our stay here was arranged by our tour operator as part of an educational tour which obviously included students and us teachers. The very first thing that is a put off is the approach road which is not wide enough for a bus to pass. So we had to disembark on the main road and then walk to the hotel....

I stayed in this hotel for 2 days. It was a simple hotel with basic facilities. The room and the bathroom was clean as well. My flush was leaking and so they changed my room. Hence this place needs better maintenance. The TV was old dabba TV and not an LCD. The location of the hotel is good as it...

Recently visited this hotel to attend a reception. Buffet was pretty decent. Parking is a bit of pain as it is crowded and pretty narrow, but there is another parking opposite to the hotel. I believe it's pay and park but they didn't charge me any when I told that I am going to the hotel. The road is pretty...

An aging hotel with aging facilities! I even had to pay for drinking water. No tea/coffee maker provided in the room though it claims to be a 4 star hotel. Room was average, no problem. Toilet/shower average. Frequent power cuts. The breakfast was the only highlight of the stay. Hotel should be categorized between 2 and 3 star.

A less than average hotel with poor service, dirty rooms and hefty charge for food. I was not supposed to stay in this hotel as I booked another hotel through ClearTrip.com. I made the full payment 4 days before the checkin date and ClearTrip confirmed my booking. When I went to checkin at the hotel, I came to know from...

The hotel gave us rooms that were at the end of the corridor. The room was spacious but as you step into the corridor you are assailed by smells and a pile of towels piled at the end. We asked for a change and they finally gave us smaller rooms at the beginning of the corridor. Asked for some empty...

Stayed here for two nights during x-mas 2015, location is the only major advantage. The hotel needs to be refurnished, the luggage holder fell off the moment we kept our suitcase on it! The rooms are big enough for a family of three. overall a mediocre stay, did not experiment on the restaurant, as there are lots of good places...

An average hotel located on the periphery of Kottayam town, so the location is not promosing to begin with. Rooms are huge but poorly maintained and so it the service. The private bus stand and market are quite close though and the place goes easy on the pocket *Not recommended*
