Recently visited this hotel to attend a reception. Buffet was pretty decent. Parking is a bit of pain as it is crowded and pretty narrow, but there is another parking opposite to the hotel. I believe it's pay and park but they didn't charge me any when I told that I am going to the hotel. The road is pretty... More

An aging hotel with aging facilities! I even had to pay for drinking water. No tea/coffee maker provided in the room though it claims to be a 4 star hotel. Room was average, no problem. Toilet/shower average. Frequent power cuts. The breakfast was the only highlight of the stay. Hotel should be categorized between 2 and 3 star.

A less than average hotel with poor service, dirty rooms and hefty charge for food. I was not supposed to stay in this hotel as I booked another hotel through ClearTrip.com. I made the full payment 4 days before the checkin date and ClearTrip confirmed my booking. When I went to checkin at the hotel, I came to know from... More

The hotel gave us rooms that were at the end of the corridor. The room was spacious but as you step into the corridor you are assailed by smells and a pile of towels piled at the end. We asked for a change and they finally gave us smaller rooms at the beginning of the corridor. Asked for some empty... More

Stayed here for two nights during x-mas 2015, location is the only major advantage. The hotel needs to be refurnished, the luggage holder fell off the moment we kept our suitcase on it! The rooms are big enough for a family of three. overall a mediocre stay, did not experiment on the restaurant, as there are lots of good places... More

An average hotel located on the periphery of Kottayam town, so the location is not promosing to begin with. Rooms are huge but poorly maintained and so it the service. The private bus stand and market are quite close though and the place goes easy on the pocket *Not recommended*

We booked the room over phone. We got the best room with the huge balcony attached. Staff are cooperative. breakfast was good ( except idly and sambar) . this hotel is centrally located. The driver's room is fitted only with fan and no windows. It is located in underground parking area.

In the heart of Kottayam and located close to the temple, the stay was worthwhile. The rooms are spacious but the bathroom was small and the shower was close the wall and taking bath was difficult. The wifi was not working however they had the wifi facility.
