We thought this was a very nice place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the food is excellent and very cheap, the verandah is a lovely place to hang out and the bamboo rooms are really charming. Bathrooms are basic but clean. Ashtamudi is close to town as well. We would rate this stay excellent if not for a couple of things; firstly, we had quite a few powercuts during our 24 hour stay, and the WiFi did not work continuously (but was fast when it worked). Secondly, our room facing the street was very noisy, both from the street (which is small but busy, and Indian drivers apparently cannot go 10 metres without honking at something), from construction works in the same building and next door, and also from the room next to us with only thin bamboo walls separating the rooms. Despite this, all in all this is a very good place to stay, and we would be happy to return as well as to recommend it to others.
