We managed to reach the place after lot of asking around. The... More

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

Got attracted by reading others reviews and gloomy pictures from net. From the moment we checked in they are worried about the money and always insist to pay the money first like even we order the tea which is too costly and the place is very remote and they do not have tie up with transport providers and to drop...

I spent 5 days at Malgudi Holidays and enjoyed my stay there very much. The staff is helpful and friendly. Location is ideal, close to the beach and within walking distance from the Railway station. It feels like in the middle of the jungle, no noise from the city. The room was clean and comfortable but a bit pricey and... More

I stayed at the Malgudi Serviced Apartments for three nights. All the people here including the owner and staff were very welcoming , friendly and worked hard to ensure I had a good stay here. The rooms were clean and comfortable. This was very good value for money.

Three of us friends stayed at Malgudi Holidays for about 2 nights. The staff were amazingly helpful from the first phone call which I made to try and book it before we arrived. Since it was a last minute idea to go to Kannur we were lucky to have found this hotel and the staff assured us of an apartment... More

We were very warmly welcomed from the owner of the hotel and his family. Very close to the beach, far from the loudness of the city, we recommend this peaceful facility. It was a pity to spend just one night there!
