This was the best place in our entire tour. The restaurant was superb, the staff was friendly, the amenities were good. The whole resort is built superbly and if you are thinking of a stay in Kumarakom without thinking choose this place! 5 stars for sure!

Manor Backwater resort has large size rooms with beautiful view of backwater. Restaurant has good food with quality service. Resort also arranges boathouse for a scenic boat-ride in backwater. Perfect destination for a quality stay. Good value for money.

When I chose this resort I was little skeptical about the hotel and it's services.but everything turned out to be very pleasant and we enjoyed a lot. Although there werent many more people, it added on to our experience. Off the main market you won't get much to do except boating. Food quality was also good. I will surely recommend... More

The scenery - paddy field and river- from the sit-out of the first floor room is really nice.The location is the best sample for 'Kerala's beautiful nature' and resort's architecture is very suitable for the nature. Staffs were cooperative, worth of money spent for rooms-were good in standard. food was good.

The Staff are extremely warm and welcoming. Food of good quality and hygiene. The best part was the location of the resort making all sight-seeing spots easily accessible. Landscaping and view from the rooms are beautiful! Look forward to going back and spending more time in Kumarakom.

Staff least bothered about guests.Cups and plates lying across the corridor.Worst food and that too with limited options.No cleanliness...was served bottled water with cockroaches roaming on bottle cap...And you have to pay service tax for the worst service that you get

This is really an amazing hotel in Kumarakom, Rooms are spacious and clean. The view on the back side of the room is really amazing. You can see the backwater and the boats passing by. Truly amazing and picturesque. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful and the food is good. The rooms gave a look of heritage property.

The hotel is well positioned and we had a superb room view of the backwaters. Much to our despair, there were no deck chairs or equivalent by the pool, so we had to lie on towels, on the concrete floor- such a shame! Breakfast was okay, nothing special. Rooms were of a good size but I think they needed a... More
