Very disappointing, I had a day trip here some years ago and thought it would be nice to stay overnight, wrong, hotel is shabby and very run down. It needs some serious maintenance, the rooms are dilapidated and we were in a suite which was huge!

We were a little skeptical about staying in a govt owned resort,but to our pleasant surprise the property,rooms staff service everything turned out to be just superb.And it is truly value for money.The only minus was the food.Built in 1744 by a Dutch trader, it is one of the oldest existing Dutch Palaces outside Holland and only Palace hotel of...

I ve stayed in this resort owned by Kerala Tourism development corporation. The location is excellent . It is very close to Cochin City. The service is very average and the property is not well maintained. The garden and lawns have not been maintained properly. But if you are looking for a quiet stay at a wonderful place at a... More

Recently we stayed on this property on a family vacation. We were initially skeptical about this being a govt property service and maintenance may not be upto the mark. But to our pleasant surprise we were wrong. We got a very good service as well as nicely maintained property. The prices were also very cheap compared to other similar properties... More

Location of the resort(?)is pretty nice... It is not easy find some where so calm and scenic in the middle of a metro city... But the rooms need hell of a lot of maintenance and renovation(Which, I don't think is going to happen in foreseeable future as it is a government run property)... Dinner is just ok... And break fast... More

I went her for 2 weeks whilst waiting for a friend to arrive. It's government run ,which should tell you something about the place. The pool was ok,but,I always had to find someone to ask for a towel. Rooms are very average,hot water hit and miss. It was quite amusing to see eight waiters at breakfast standing around doing nothing,it... More

Stayed there for a day on the 21st of june, the location of the resort is just amazing but it being a govt hotel the upkeep is not up to the mark. Gardens in bad shape. Even then the stay was satisfying. Wi-Fi is chargeable on per hour basis which is laughable in this age of free internet even at... More

An island heritage hotel (a 1744 Dutch Mansion) with excellent views and ample space has been wasted by KTDC. Any good hotel chain would have made it the most sought after hotel. But KTDC believes in mediocrity and it shows. I stayed first night at Marina view room (a separate building near gate) but quickly realised that it was more... More

The blend of water bodies and the greenery adds refreshing relaxed peaceful ambiance.The place is cleanly maintained and well cared.Ecologically there are many problems for the island resort but the KTDC owned place has changed a lot.The coffee shop and the ambiance is good.The treatment meted out to foreign tourists and local touris are the same.A great place to stay...

Its a nice place to Stay.... Away from crowd.... However "Golf View" is not that much exciting,....Instead "Lake Front" is a nice view...... Definitely a good place to stay compared to other hotels in Kochi.
