“Nice property ...”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Great property conveniently located for both business and pleasure trips ..highly recommended as first stop in Kerala. Ask the hotel for a boat rowing experience in their backwaters. The view from the gym is quite picturesque, inspiration to push yourself. Staff quite courteous, the airports dropped tend to be over priced but that's okay.

The hotel is an old one and has been refurbished. Its a little away from the city on the highway to Allepy or Marari. The rooms are decent size and old style bathrooms, etc. Nothing that exciting about the rooms. The hotel has a nice swimming pool and great food. We had a sumptuous South Indian lunch, Superb North Indian food on 2 occasions and very nice breakfast spread.

The one thing that i like about the hotel the most though is the covered verandah area where you can just hang out and chill. Really nice resort feeling just like hotels at beach location and not stuffy.

The hotel is more resort then business hotel. Worth a stay for the food!

The service here is just great and it's a newly renovated property. Great atmosphere and the room service is worth mentioning. It is located in not so crowded part of Kochi and the road connectivity is good. Includes almost all facilities for family purposes to business meetings.

Excellent hotel, great views and surroundings unfortunately couldnt make the most of it as we had to leave early for munnar...

Great hospitality from all the staff we encountered, Roshini from front desk was really pleasant and had great customer service skills....would also like to thank Shinoj from reservation for all the assistance provided...Thanks for the complimentary upgrade and lovely decoration in the room it was really appreciated.

Had a small challenge which has been brought to the attention of Mr Sarfras Jaleel..

A small note to trip advisor guests :

This appeared to be an older property, which has been mostly renovated, and is very nice. The rooms were well-appointed and the service was excellent. An upgrade to the Club Level is worthwhile as there aren't a lot of restaurants nearby, so the breakfast in the morning is handy and we we even made dinner out of the evening hors d'oeuvres a couple of nights. The pool and the area around it have yet to be renovated, and are not in very good shape, but that would be my only negative.

A helpful tip regarding transportation....there is a taxi stand just up the road to the left of the hotel. If you go there you can save quite a bit compared to booking a taxi through the hotel. For example, the hotel quoted 1900 INR to the airport, but the same car at the taxi stand was only 1000 INR and they will pick you up at the hotel lobby if you make arrangements in advance. Similarly, transportation to town or to the backwaters in Alleppey is much less at the taxi stand.

Room Tip: Club Level is the way to go.

To start with, this is a good place to stay.

Was told a week before my flight that this hotel might be a bit "tired/jaded". Some of the earlier TA reviews werent great either. Guess, I had my expectations low, hence joy was high!

The hotel seems to have been refurbished recently and looks nice

We were upgraded to an executive suite after booking a club room, which is probably why I came out smiling since I started well!! The rooms were spacious as were the toilets...ameneties could be improved. Lovely views from the room. Only grouse is that there were sofas in the living room rather than sofa cum beds; which meant that either my kids/me had to join 2 sofas to sleep or pay 1500 plus taxes per night for an extra bed...silly!

breakast was really nice with an extensive variety. loved the dosas and omlettes. Dinner buffet was lavish. Their waiting staff in the restuarant could do with some more customer service management skills

pool....well it needs work. some of the work was ongoing while we were in the pool on the last day...hope they fix the loose tiles soon

i liked their lounge area, art cafe as well as the lawns

probably it was our frame of mind, but we really had no complaints....despite the club lounge being a little small/slow!

would recommend this hotel

Room Tip: executive suite is nice
