I had come to Kottayam for an official visit and hadn't booked my ticket till the last moment. My boss had recommended Windsor to me. Called them for a room that night, unfortunately there were no room available. I did not have time to cross check with other hotels nearby. Fortunately and the good thing was, they offered me a...

Bathrooms were dirty and outdated .windows dusty and needs lot of updating. Average hotel not a three star. Food was great and service was excellent. Expect average hotel Back of the hotel was beautiful and very serene bringing a homely atmosphere. Backwaters also bring natural beauty of Kerala. Hope they will update it soon

Dumpy place!!! The bathroom was scary and afraid of getting amoebic dysentery just by being in the bathroom. The restaurant downstairs is awful and food was bad.The bar looked like a dark and dank place where you could hide and never be found because no one would willingly go in there to find you! Run down in every regard. Avoid... More

We spent one night there in November whilst on tour. We had a lovely suite with huge comfy bed and nice bathroom but it seems some of the rest of the group were less fortunate.. This hotel overlooked the river and we got a beautiful sunset. Food was good and the staff were very friendly and attentive. One of the... More

This is an imposing hotel and I wasn't able to find out the story behind the name; however my room (209) left much to be desired - dirty windows that didn't open and a very shabby bathroom with rotting wood and much staining on the bath (several guests also had this) Worse still, the main fire escape on the second...

Lovely large room with huge sitting area. Bathroom was excellent with 3 different showers! The view from the window looked down the river and we saw a lovely sunset. Reception staff rang to check that everything was as it should be in the room. Such a shame we were only there for one night.

We didn't stay at the hotel but visited the bar instead and found it to be very good. If like us you are travelling independently then finding somewhere for a cold beer in the evening is essential. It's the only bar in Kottayam however there is a government beer shop fairly near by but alcohol can only be drunk on... More

A property on the backwaters of Kerala. True to the Kerala style amazing hospitality. I loved the food...awesome out of the world. Staff was very courteous, swimming pool is clean, rooms and toilet are very clean. Food is also excellent. Rooms were alright although it could be updated, service was good.
