10th April 2014 It was nice stay here. We enjoyed the sound of birds around our cottage. (Kingfisher, woodpecker, drongo, coucal, koel etc..) We got best deal for stay. Very near to the boat jetty. Moderate food. If you stay in bamboo cottage then you hear some surprising sounds at night (nocturnal animal / birds). They gave mosquito mat but... More

The staff was very kind. The place is very good, Rooms were specious and with private balconies. They upgrade us to AC rooms with bit of extra cost. The overall space is good. Only thing that the Kids garden was not maintained properly and also there was some corner area that was not maintained. Location of the hotel is very... More

The surroundings do not disappoint with grand teak buildings with magnificent overhanging eaves and generous balconies. We stayed in a charming first floor room with it's own veranda which provided a delightful refuge from dramatic thunderstorms as we watched rain cascade from the roof. Food was variable and basic and service a little confused although very friendly. We would recommend... More

Beautiful old heritage house very clean and service wonderful. We happened to stay on an unfortunate festival date where the temple next door starts its noisy service at 3am and doesn't stop! Having said that I would still recommend staying for the ambience service and hot showers!

We spent one night in the bamboo cottage at the Tharavadu Heritage home. It was a minimalistic and budget cottage in a bamboo groove. The room was small and very basic. The structure makes it accessible to bugs, which is expected in a bamboo cottage. It was interesting to observe the authentic Kerala architecture. The staff was friendly and service... More

I stayed at tharavdu heritage home in October 2013 for 2 nights. I was there with my wife for a conference. Unfortunately, the conference was very poorly organised and the only saving grace of the trip was this hotel. Our decision to go was sort of last minute,so we didn't get rooms/ couldn't afford rooms in the more we'll known... More

It is simple to get it right when you are located in Kerala next to a river. That said many get it wrong. The hosts were friendly and warm, the house was a pleasure to be in which made it a hard decision whether to stay inside and read or go outside and walk along the banks. Whilst there I... More
