Easy break

Located along the NH 47 a little after leaving or reaching Alleppey, this place is a good break point. Managed by the Kerala tourism corporation the place is clean and serves the travelling crowd. The food is good and there is ample parking space.

The foods served in this restaurant are tasty. We can enjoy the Kerala style food. The restaurant in over all seems to be neat and clean. There is ample space for parking. It on the highway and is easily accessible.

It is a decent place to stop by and have breakfast and tea. The location is good, just off the NH 47 in Alappuzha district of Kerala. Value for money.

Our attempt for having lunch at this place failed as we were given the impression that this was the last meal for all the people on Earth and they were gracious to offer whatever left over they had at a premium. Staff or so called hooligans have no sense of service and some one should belt them for their casual... More

Generally, KTDC units maintain a certain standard and the menu here is typical KTDC. However, the quality of food is way below par. Again, KTDC generally instal and operate water treatment plants in their units to achieve a certain minimum standard but the water quality here is actually very poor. The property as expected is quite spacious and you can... More

Motel Araam, is located in Alappuzha town on NH 47 which connects Alappuzha to Ernakulam. I visited this restaurant in the last week of Dec 2014 for lunch. I choose this restaurant over other nearby restaurants since it is a state tourism department owned property. Lunch offered at the restaurant was really very disappointing. Firstly, during lunch hours only buffet... More

was looking to comment on this place for some time. The spelling is wrong... it is motel not motal. it is a Kerala Government run place attached to the tamarind hotel. there is no variety to choose from. the vegetarian lunch buffet is acceptable.

Good food but slow service and typical government server attitude... Good while you are on long drive and with parking and refreshing facilities...
