As the address says, the hotel is located at the junction of two mayor streets, so when you approach by car, the first impression is not THAT great. But that changes once you enter the premises. The surroundings are nice and quiet, and at the rear, behind the large pool and the nice garden, the hotel is located on the backwaters. We only stayed for one night and had no chance for a boat tour on the backwaters, but one tour left on a boat while we had breakfast.
I was bit anxious about mosquitoes, but the backwaters are brackish (salty) water, so even at night there was no issue with bites.
My room was newly refursbished, spacy and comfortable. A large window overlooking park and pool, a good mattress and a spacious bathroom came with it. The service was great and everbody we met from reception to restaurant was friendly.
Only downside was the musical taste - apparently catering to western tourists a potbourri of western musics plays in the lifts, and a local combo played western music at the restaurant. It is a question of taste, but to me this is oddly out of place in Kerala, India...
