We went to Kumarrakom for a conference and initially checked into this hotel. We were denied cottages by the receptionist despite having payed for them earlier and were allotted rooms in the so called Windsor Castle. Only the Tudors could have dealt with the staff of the hotel- downright arrogant and rude, treating us as though we were doing a... More

We took up our not so good experience at Windsor Castle and decided to shift to its sister property Lake View Heritage Resort which is an extension of the hotel grounds. It appeared that big weddings are held in the massive grounds and that helps in running the show. The resort was almost bereft of staff on the day that... More

We checked into this hotel at 10PM. Since, this hotel is not so popular, the hotel management converted the restaurant into a bar. The only way to reach the hotel... More

We live in Kochi. We stayed here for one night as I had to deliver a training in Kottayam. I worked, but my husband was able to enjoy the place while I was working. We really weren't sure how it was going to be after reading mixed reviews here. We were wondering also if it would be worth it (financially).... More

This place is amazing and peaceful. You get an amazing view of the lake from the windows as well as Balcony of your cottage. The spa is rejuvenating though you have to book your treatment in advance. Ambience is classy and you get a peaceful atmosphere. If you want to chill out this is the place you should visit...!!!

I became particularly intrigued with the town of Kottayam when I heard about the two firsts which it had; it was the first city in India to achieve 100% literacy (in late 1980s) and also became the first Indian tobacco free district in late 2000s!! I had previously not heard about the place and given my inquisitive nature I decided... More
