“Amazing staff and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Thank god for finding Mascot in Kannur. By far the best accomodation in terms of being in Kannur itself (we stayed in the city centre area as well), it was very clean, comfortable and extremely welcoming. Jitu, the owner, treated us like guests in his own home and the staff went to any length to ensure that we we're well taken care of. Payallumbum beach nearby isn't the best for tourists as you will be mobbed, but if you take a 20-30 minute auto ride out of town you can get to some very nice beaches. Overall, highly recommend staying in Mascot if you're in Kannur!

We stayed here between Christmas and New Years. The room was lovely, clean tiles, white walls, balcony and a flat screen tv which is a real bonus when you're travelling!! The best part is that we were able to get a discount which meant that we could stay for 3 nights. The staff were very friendly and efficient at reception and the manager helped us out with a few queries that we had about onward travel. The food was very good in the restaurant too.We didn't do alot in Kannur other than stay at the hotel and plan our next location. While the beach is close by and quite busy there wasn't really anyone sun bathing or swimming.

We stumbled upon this hotel last week and were able to get a room with a balcony for the first night of our stay, and then a standard room (no balcony) for the second night of our stay, due to rooms being booked in advance for a wedding. I really enjoyed my stay here. The view of the Arabian Sea was phenomenal and the rooms were tidy and clean. We ate at the restaurant twice and the food was very good. The hotel felt very safe and secure as well. I would not count on the Wi-Fi however, because the connection is very poor, even in the restaurant. The staff was VERY helpful when arranging activities outside of the resort. The entire stay was very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend the Mascot Beach Resort and should I ever find myself in southern India again, I would stay here a second time.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony, it doesn't cost much more and the views are great!

This was my second stay at Mascot Beach Resort in Kannur, Kerala. It's changed enormously in the last 4 years since my last visit.
The location is breathtaking, on the shores of the Arabian Sea- the waves almost hit the walls of the resort with just a few rocks separating the two. Most of the rooms are sea facing with views of the sunset and sunrise. The rooms are spacious, well equipped, airy, well lit with good, clean bathrooms and hot water all the time. Most rooms also have balconies where you can sit and have a cup of tea and drink in the scene. The property was originally a guest house for visiting international clients. The owner, Jitu Shekar's family owns the oldest textile and handloom mills in Kannur and Jitu's father had bought this property as a guest house for his visiting customers. It was then turned into a hotel and resort with a swimming pool and large lawns for dinner and private functions.
I stayed here for Christmas and New Year 2012. The owner, Jitu, was around everyday to take care of guests and make sure the staff took care of everyone. The staff were really welcoming beyond bounds of duty- all spoke English well and were helpful and co-operative. If you needed anything, transport, advice on where to go and what to do and the best deals- from the Kerala martial arts to the local temple religious rituals- they had all the information. In case anything was required in the rooms, service time was short and efficient.
There was a wide variety of food available, kerala and international cuisine in the restaurant on the premises. The food was good. The atmosphere during Xmas and the New Year was quite busy with lots of party activity. For New Year a poolside party with a buffet dinner was organised- supremely memorable- music, dancing, and fireworks- a magnificent display of celebration, with the fireworks and the Arabian Sea as the main highlight!
Mascot has an old world charm about it and is chicer than the average resorts in Kannur, it's quite possibly the best hotel in Kannur, with a long history of international visitors and service.
It's also a very romantic spot for couples wanting to enjoy attentive service and an incredible, unspoilt, natural location. And a place for quiet contemplation off season for relaxing and enjoying a long weekend away.

This resort was everything I had imagined and more.The room was very spacious, with a beautiful view of the sea. Very tropical setting, which I did not expect in India. The views of the afternoon sun setting into the sea, will forever be a snapshot, in my mind.The staff at the resort was very friendly, and attentive to travelers needs. My morning cup of coffee was enhanced with the view and the breeze from the sea. Food was great at the restaurant on the property.The swimming pool area had just been renovated. Very relaxing atmosphere.

Planned for the Kannur trip as I wanted to take a break from Bangalore, along with my parents who had come for a visit... and the Mascot Beach Resort proved to be a perfect getaway ! Situated just overhanging a cliff giving way to the Arabian Sea, with an amazing view of the sea splashing the rocks .. you can hear the waves from the balcony which also offers a perfect view of the sunset.
The resort is well maintained, the rooms are clean & spacious and the staff is cordial.
As we were having some problem understanding the local language , we were even provided with one of the hotel staff for the local sight seeing for two days which was very considerate and helpful.

This is a perfect place if you want to get away from the city for a while ...

After two weeks of traveling in the south of india, our 5 days stay in the mascot beach resort was exactly the right choice. We had a nice room with a balcony with direct view to the sea. We had every day excellent food in the restaurant of the Resort and we enjoyed the incredible Ayurveda Treatments (Sirodhara, Kati Vasthi, Podi Kizhi) with the magic hands of Mr. Joseph. The birthday cake was a special surprise and we thank to Sasilal for organize our taxi to Goa. Say hello to everybody of the staff, everybody was very friendly and we wish you all the best.
