“Value for money resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This hotel is nice for a 2-3 day stay. We generally stayed on the top floor where the swimming pool is. It was nice and pleasant. But I should warn people that the food is really bad. It will be advisable to get breakfast from outside. Stale breads. Cold dosa and idli, including sambar.

But overall, room was decent and service was good. We ordered room service for 2 days. Bring snacks with you when you come.

Room Tip: Choose a room around the top floor to get away from the noise from the breakfast area.

The hotel was really nice and the facilities were quite good. It is very easy to spot on the NH 212. The hotel staff were very courteous but I think they are bit understaffed to provide the kind of service a really good hotel of this stature. Also on the way to the hotel the reception were unable to give directions on how far it was from the main town of Sultan Bathery, so we had to call the General Manager of the hotel for directions! Please use Google Maps in case you are driving. The AC deluxe rooms were big, spacious and clean. The pictures given in the gallery are correct(not photo shopped) and WYSIWYG.Proximity to Kozhikode/Kappad beach is another advantage. Overall good experience. We will go there again definitely and suggest it to our friends.

Based on the user reviews on trip advisor, we booked the hotel for the long weekend we had planned with our family.

Our criteria was budget and ambiance, which usually doesn't go hand in hand.

When we booked we got some discounts from Goibibo. Hotel is located at a perfect place and if you happen to get rooms with the best view, you are absolutely in the arms of nature and would have a perfect sip of tea watching mist from your balcony at 4 pm in the evening.

It was amazing to see how the group of female staff, under supervision of Ms. Veena perfectly handled all the management of the hotel (Please do not take it as a sexist remark, infact, me and my wife were really inspired to see them working so hard).

Regarding rooms, if you happened to stay in any of the Ginger Hotels, then the room is twice as big as those ginger hotel rooms, perfectly clean and comfortable.

Our booking included bed and breakfast. The breakfast on the day one was ok but was great on the second day. The only not so good factor was the dinner buffet we had. No taste, cold and highly priced (300/person for not so many things) and moreover there is no other option than the buffet.In room restaurant service was good, especially the evening tea with their snack bites.

Its only for this reason I rated one point less.

Overall experience was beautiful and pleasant. There is no point thinking of any other hotels when we visit Wayanad again.

Room Tip: Request for the back side rooms. They have beautiful views.

Travelled from Bangalore. Stayed for 3 nights 2 - 4 oct, 2014 in a deluxe non-AC room. Room was spacious with balcony and bathroom was clean. Places like Edakkal caves, soochipara falls are far off. Staff were courteous, especially Ms. Veena Varier. She was very helpful and can get things done quickly especially as I travelled with small kids. Parking space is very limited and quite unorganized. The security must take care to see that vehicles are not obstructed. Food was reasonably good but no ala carte option, only buffet so you don't get your choice. I guess it was because of dussera holidays with weekend, they had less manpower. Nice clean place to stay.

Stayed: 2/10/14 - 5/10/14

We stayed there for 4D/3N (01.10.14 to 04.10.14), it was good experience.
View from Rooms are good.

for the people from enter from calicut it is really the wayanad gate, for people from bangalore it is end of wayanad, but view point< 100 mts, Pookut lake <2.5 km.

My KID felt like staying at home, and good staff and front desk people. Mr. Pradeep Mathew(Guess i am correct), is taking more care on every person.

Suggestions given by staff about calicut was good, reg:places and food

+ :
Room space and clean
particularly about food, it is good less spice and tasty.
service ( Room service & quality )

- :
less parking space, and Difficult to takeout and park.
make some setup box connection. with all channels..
make some small play area for KIDs / Roof top make some sports facilities /GYM.
we really missed the Swimming Pool,due to the climate, if possible make Warm water.

Room Tip: 3rd and 4th floor.

Liked this place during my 3 days stay. But a few things need improvement.
When I booked it, it was bed and breakfast. But when I checked in, I was offered a Dinner invite coupon without informing that it was chargeable. Got to know only on the last day when I was checking out. But more transparency required. Food was between average to good.
Needs to have an independent multi cuisine restaurant for the people coming from various regions of the country.
