This an old property! Enmeshed in the heart of the city surrounded by cars and coconut trees and the sea nearby!! Calicut is a green city yet untouched by the rampant urban developments visible in Cochin! The lead-up to the hotel is much like the city, quiet almost sleepy. the furniture and fittings are fraying a bit. Rooms are utility... More

This was my first time in this hotel although I always stay in Taj hotels when travelling in India. This hotel is definitely worthy of the title and I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed in this hotel on 29th Nov just for 1 night. This is a Taj property but I found the property is very old and require major renovation. In the floor corridor, I found a very strange smell like something very old and I guess it was coming from the carpet! The room was very average with all old... More

The "Taj" nomenclature is not exactly appropriate except for the courteousness of the staff, however overall the hotel is comfortable. The property is smallish, very close to the Calicut beach with a good spa etc. Breakfast is good, but again doesn't ring a "Taj" bell in your mind. The staff is very friendly and courteous and make the best of... More
