Beautiful hotel. The hotel garden is overlooking the river. There are some lovely fruit trees in the garden. There is a boat jetty that is linked to the hotel main building with a bridge. You can enjoy the view of the garden and river from there. Absolutely beautiful!
The rooms are excellent. Breakfast was excellent too.

Nothing to criticise here. Excellent stay in a full, international-class hotel.

Dusk was glorious. No mosquitos or other insects. Warm and just beautiful.

This was my first stay in India - stayed four nights for a conference.

A couple of quibbles but nothing to get worked up about. They seem to run events pretty much every night. When I was there a corporate evening event brought in (loud) music and lights, so my room, which overlooked the pool was a prime location to see the show.

Also, the place had only one restaurant. Others were being refurbished, so the choice was more limited than one might have expected at this class of hotel.

Having said that, the event I was attending involved meals for 700 or so people. The team at Le Meridien catered for these large numbers with apparent ease - good food; great variety; served in good time. All eaten outside.

Apologies to the management for the implications of this comment, but I was able to drink water from glasses, eat salads and fruit in the restaurant, and there was no sign of upset tummy or anything else.

Full marks to the restaurant team for that.

Loved it.

My first stay at a Le meridian property. The rooms were comfortable and the bath rooms were big and spacious. The interiors were simple and good. We had buffet dinner at the restaurant . We got personalized recommendation from the chef and we were very happy with their hospitality. Definitely a great stay and would recommend this hotel.

Its a good hotel but cant call it a five star! would say its a 3+ in India.
Experience wise:
+ Rooms are very good - clean, spacious, well lit, comfortable
+ competitive pricing
+ Great for business or solo travel
- Few parts still under renovation
- conference room is just ok! nothing great
- service wont leave an impact
- Very limited food options! buffet isnt good... they should have more eating options

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!
