Lovely experience here. Probably we were the only guests and hence we were bumped into a larger room. The furnishings were brilliant, the bathroom was clean, the linen was spotlessly clean, the staff was courteous and the compound was mesmerising. A small canal passes by it and the hammocks were pleasing enough. The food was good too. It is located... More

We spent a part of our Christmas vacations last year at this heritage home. We had booked the annex rooms but they were comfortable with a small sit-out. The facility is next to the boat jetty which is a definite value add. The staff is courteous and the service is good. Food was also good and they were willing to... More

We booked this hotel literally half an hour before we arrived in Kumarakom, because we had a very loosely planned trip to India, and didn't really know we would be coming to this city ahead of time. We were so glad we found it! The hotel is simple but clean, with good air conditioning and a great breakfast served in... More

First things first-the property is surely a heritage one and that too at a fantastic location, right next to the boat jetty! Even the people/staff are very nice and helpful. The food could have more options, given that they have guests from all over the world. The thing that was a big put -off was the bad lighting all over... More

Booked this through stayzilla the annex rooms but due to some other booking were upgraded to Deluxe rooms. Heritage Home with its 1870's style setting and building is great but please visit with minimum expectations as this might not be to everybody's liking. Food is good but a tad overpriced at least for the breakfast. Pro's 1) Location of the... More

We stayed one night here in December, and were in one of the heritage rooms. The room itself was lovely and very clean, however the bathroom was a little more basic. The on-site restaurant serves very tasty food, as long as you have pre-ordered at least an hour before. We were woken up by the call to prayer at 4.30am,... More

It is true that Theravadu is a beautiful 1870s style house built along the river close to the Kumarkom Jetty. It's rooms - in the heritage building itself- are very nicely appointed indeed. However, do not necessarily expect to get what you paid for if you book a room online through any of the booking agencies. At least this was... More
