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.

Located a little away from the city centre, ideal for those who travel by road.This property is well known being one of the oldest high end place in Kottayam and seems to be undergoing some renovations. Rooms were alright although it could be updated, service was good.

My husband and I spent a night at this hotel when we were visiting Kottayam last year. Bath tub had cracks and the shower literally sprinkled water. The most disturbing part of the stay was, at around 2am in the morning, someone tried to get into our room. We had the security latch on, so they just left the door... More

I was handed a drinks menu but then it turned out they didn't have any of the vodkas on it and the ones they did have were double the price - "we are issuing a new menu soon". Food not good - poor quality... More
