I had booked a 2 bedroom apartment here on my way back to Kochi from Kollur. Reached Kannur by 9PM and was shocked to see the approach road to this place. I drive a XUV and the road was just wide enough to accommodate a XUV. If you are not careful, then a scratch or two is guaranteed. If you... More

First thing first, the place is located in the city of Kannur but it is secluded from all the hassles of the City tucked in by lanes. Akash welcoming nature and he is always available for any help. We were given the room with shared kitchen and living area, when it was told to akash we want independent service apartment,... More

There were some hairs and dust what looked like swept and kept on the corner. Toilets looked like being a used one, not as cleaned. Have told the attendant to clean the room when we went out for shopping, came back to find it in the same condition. Have to change 2 rooms at checkin due to above cleanliness and... More

It was a small yet sweet stay, specially the staff and people around are very hospitable. Rooms were comfy but they just need to make it mosquito and lizard free. May be they can undergo a pest-control. The place as a whole is beautiful.

The rooms are really clean. The service was not upto the mark, probably we expected more due to the rent that we had paid. People were really nice but the staff is really less(just 1 guy I guess). No food available. If you just want to spend the night,then its a good place.

Lovely place, in traditional kerala style. The homestay is located in a very quiet environment and near the beach. Rooms are excellent, with garden view. You can even have a living room and kitchen included. The manager is very helpful.

On the day of arrival, I called to get some directions, they informed that I will have to wait Half an hour for the AC room that I had booked. The directions were vague.

We stayed just one night here on our way from Alleppey to Bekal, so I cannot comment on the location. We were hopeful from the great reviews, but, sadly disappointed. We were provided a family-style suite with 2 bedrooms, lounge and kitchen. The place is in serious need of maintenance and a deep cleaning. There were holes in the walls,... More
