I had visited kottayam for a official visit from 3rd to 7th August; however, the stay was totally disappointing. The rooms are not much bad; but the washrooms were old with broken bathtub and old leaking taps. There is a refrigerator in the room, but no tea or coffee maker. The safe in the room was not working. The upholstery... More

This property is situated inside city limits, but has an exclusive waterfront and extensive lawns. But the hotel is not up to the mark in many areas- the check-in is slow, the room service is tardy and the food is of pathetic quality. The breakfast buffet was the worst i ever had, from any 3* or 4* hotel. The property... More

The Windsor Castle is one of the best resorts in Kottayam. Lovely cottages, a lot of open spaces to explore, the best of Kerala cuisine and a great place to get an Ayurvedic massage. I would recommend the lake view cottages if they fit your budget.

Such a waste of wonderful landscape and potential, this hotel is. Right from the moment I booked a room on Agoda, my troubles began. I needed an early check-in because of my train timings. I made a request. A man by the name Rahul attended my first call and assured me it wouldn't be a problem. However, 30 seconds later,... More

Well located. Nice ambience with the vemband lake near by. Also connected to major centres. Food is decent. Needs maitainence in some parts. Service at the kerala cuisine segment was good. Offers ample parking even for an event. Rainy season could make your stay there a bit concerning

The Windsor Castle is well-located; the place is away from the city traffic, crowd and noise.Hotel staff is very courteous, English-speaking, and ready to help. Rooms provide a panaromic view of sea of paddy fields and coconut groves. The hotel has a large private area with cottages in its backyard. Pathways shaded with trees , and places for sit-around are... More

An excellent stay. I was attending a friends wedding at the Windsor Castle Convention center and the friend (groom) being busy and me being a lone traveller, had no choice but to do a lot of sightseeing alone. However the well trained staff of the hotel was able to organise everything for me, from boating in the back waters to... More
