After searching a lot of stay choices, my father picked Kanjirakattu Heritage Home, thinking that it will be budget facility near the temple. But what we are enjoying is clearly a pleasant home stay... More

We had a comfortable stay for two days at this cool Heritage home. Really enjoyed the authentic home cooked meals ( Dosas, appams, Puttu chicken curry ) by our hostess Priya. Thanks Priya, her mother and Parmeshwar for all the guidance and assistance making our trip a memorable one. The D'Souza's from Mumbai.

We had a three day stay and found it spacious enough for the three of us including a 16 month old daughter. The old lady of the house was courteous and helpful. The place inspite of looking neat and clean, though had severe red ant infestation. A morsel of food or a dead insect would attract them by the hordes... More

I loved the tranquility and humble beauty of this home stay. It's tucked in the suburban area of Kottayam so make sure you have Priya's mobile number on you so that she can direct your driver to the home. Priya wasn't in Kottayam when my family and I stayed there but her mother was looking after us. We were able... More

The hospitality at this homestay was exceptional. From the moment I arrived in the middle of the night, and was met by Priya and her gracious mother, I was in paradise!
