It was a small yet sweet stay, specially the staff and people around are very hospitable. Rooms were comfy but they just need to make it mosquito and lizard free. May be they can undergo a pest-control. The place as a whole is beautiful.

The rooms are really clean. The service was not upto the mark, probably we expected more due to the rent that we had paid. People were really nice but the staff is really less(just 1 guy I guess). No food available. If you just want to spend the night,then its a good place.

Lovely place, in traditional kerala style. The homestay is located in a very quiet environment and near the beach. Rooms are excellent, with garden view. You can even have a living room and kitchen included. The manager is very helpful.

On the day of arrival, I called to get some directions, they informed that I will have to wait Half an hour for the AC room that I had booked. The directions were vague.

We stayed just one night here on our way from Alleppey to Bekal, so I cannot comment on the location. We were hopeful from the great reviews, but, sadly disappointed. We were provided a family-style suite with 2 bedrooms, lounge and kitchen. The place is in serious need of maintenance and a deep cleaning. There were holes in the walls,... More

I stayed in Malgudi for 2 nights with my family and everything about the place was above expectation for us. It was a last minute decision to visit Kannur and I saw the mixed reviews here. Still I decided to go... More
