“Basic hotel and not so close to Temple”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I had booked this hotel after reading couple of reviews, which said that it is very close to the temple.
Hotel is located in the inner lane and is second last building on that small road. Look for the small board on the main road else its difficult to find the hotel. There are 3-4 "Gokulam" hotels (With something like Sri or hotel attached with Gokulam). So be specific and ask or look for complete name.
Rooms are basic but clean.
There is small sitting area attached with each room. This area is furnish with a granite slab, a sink with running water and sofa set for sitting.
All rooms have AC system.
Bathroom is very very small and its a bit uncomfortable to take bath due to this.
They don't have restaurant but have a instant tea / coffee machine but the tea they provide us was nice.
There a small parking space inside hotel and it is covered with asbestos sheets. During our stay it rained all night and rain drop created quite a noise on these sheets.
There are many other hotels, which are comparatively closer to the temple.

I visited this place twice so far and it is a very nice place to stay with family. Very neat place. Only thing to note is there is no restaurant but you can find a nice one very near - walkable. Good people to deal with and I felt very bad when I heard the rooms are full on my short notice :( I miss the stay.

1) 10-min walk to the temple, but make sure you enter the main temple through the correct gate, which would be at the farther end.
2) Reception is very courteous and would go out of the way to help you.
3) Check with reception about pick-up and drop facility while booking. The rates are very nominal. We paid Rs.550 for a non-AC car for four people from Thrissur railway station to the hotel.
4) Spacious rooms with fridge, TV, and other essentials. Do remember though that what's inside the fridge is not free. Also, the TV remote was malfunctioning in our room.
5) There is no room service for food. You will have to buy your own food from the nearby restaurants, of which there are quite a few.
6) They manage to create a spiritual ambience in the mornings with SriKrishna bhajans and the nice fragrance of agarbathis.
7) The rates were nominal. We paid approx Rs.1200 for AC and Rs.750 for non-AC room. Only 2-3 people allowed per room.
8) Check-out is 24-hours from check-in. So you won't have to pack your bags hurriedly to leave in the afternoon.
9) Lane from hotel to main road is narrow. Maneuvering four-wheelers to park may be a bit of a problem.

A very clean and comfortable place to stay with family, walkable distance from the temple and serene ambience inside the premises. 24Hrs check-out, 24 hrs hot water in the bathroom, lounge room with Sofa attached to every bedroom, refridgerator, Television, etc., makes it a good budget hotel with Value for money!

Pros:
Service is extremely good with courteous staff who are very soft spoken and go out of the way to service requirements. Complete information about the temple are provided in the form of a broachure.

Cons:
Approach road to the resort is narrow and had to manage with restaurants around for food as hotel is yet to start with a restaurant facility. Only tea/cofee served through room service.

Room Tip: All rooms are similar and do not have a choice. A point to remember is that there is no lift facilit...

We visited Guruvayur in August 2011 and stayed at Gokulam Resort. This Hotel (Lodge) is close to the temple. Extremely Friendly staff. They have co-operate very well the us and guided us very well. This was our first trip to the holy city. The Hotel Gokulam Resort is worth the money. Hot water in bath rooms, AC bed rooms, 24/7 Coffee and Tea delivery to the room and Helpful staff and close proximity to the temple are some of the PRO s of this hotel. There is no restaurant with in this resort and this resort is located in a small dingy lane with bad road. If you can ignore these two CON s , then this is a nice budget hotel for a family. Mr.Raghunathan hotel manager is very good.

Thanks,
Gopal S

Room Tip: Nice Budget Hotel , with nice decent AC rooms. Worth the money spent.
