Clean rooms in a nice setting. Tony, the manager, was very helpful. The fact he has a houseboat is great too because you don't have to get involved in the haggle and the scrum to find a good one at a reasonable price. No hassle. Would recommend the boat too. Good (and plenty of) food. A great way to spend... More

My husband and I enjoyed a stay at hear at the beginning of this year. It is well located and very quiet. Our room had lots of character and was very clean. We also arranged a house boat from managers which we considered to be good value.

We had a lovely stay here at Cherukara nest. The homestay is an interesting 19th century building and we had an a/c room which was on two levels, full of character and very comfortable. Close to the bus station and the backwater boats and ferries it was a perfect base for exploring the backwaters. A surprisingly quiet location although central.... More

We only stayed at Cherukara Nest for 2 nights, we would have happily spent more. The room was full of character, lovely dark wood furniture really giving the place the antique heritage feel it's going for,man achievement the countless more expensive 'heritage' spots in India often miss. The owner was very friendly and polite, we didn't end up taking either... More

Stayed 2 nights after a ferry from Kollam and a visit to the bird sanctuary. Brilliantly located(1min walk from the jetty or 2 mins from the bus station), owner Tony was really friendly and welcoming and had plenty of good advice regarding local sights, getting around etc. Rooms were basic but really clean, cool and spacious. Good breakfast also. Highly... More

This is a lovely old building with huge rooms and wonderful features. We have stayed in simpler and more ornate surroundings in India but in our experience Cherukara's nest is the best value hotel we have stayed in so far. Tony is very helpful, though he is a busy man, and always had time to help us with any questions... More

We arrived after a day of traveling at Cherakura Nest because we made a reservation. Fortunately something had gone wrong and there was no room available. I write fortunately because the place is not nice, the garden is really not maintained. Forget about what the lonely planet write! Have they even been there? Ofcourse I can say nothing about the...

I'm being generous and giving it a 3 not a 2 as it probably wasn't poor by Indian standards. We decided to stay here as it was championed in the latest edition of the Lonely Planet, but I just can't see why! Yes the locks on the door are rather nice, and I quite enjoyed the swing in the garden... More

It was great to spend one night at Cherukara Nest. We had a wonderful room and owner Mr. Tony John was very welcoming. After a great freshly made breakfast in the garden we walked to the busstation (5 minutes) and continued our trip to Cochin.
