Staying in Kollam for two nights was a bit of a mistake as there is not much for the tourist to do that is wildly exciting (I had already done the Backwaters and didn't fancy any more of them) and the town is a typical Indian town - noisy, crowded and a bit scruffy. However, staying at the Nani was NOT a mistake - the hotel is well maintained and clean and the staff polite and helpful. The room and attached bathroom was fine. When I called Reception to tell them that the TV in my room did not seem to be working, within minutes two technicians arrived and tinkered about with it and then showed me how to get the channels in English. The hotel is situated opposite a derelict clock tower and the hustle and bustle of the town is right outside. The restaurant served good food in the evenings and I was directed to a hotel at Kollam Beach so that I could partake of alcohol (30 rupees in an auto-rickshaw). Breakfast on the first morning was a plate of fairly unappetising Indian fare but on the second morning there was a small buffet, mainly of Indian food. It was a pity that the girl in charge of the toaster did not understand that if the dial was increased from Number 1 then toast could be produced without having to put the bread through the machine about eight times and still not really producing toast. Apart from this, Nani is recommended.
