We had a big and beautiful room upstairs, with ceiling fan, mosquito net and a windowed varanda to the sea front. The hotel could do better if it made a small investment, for it has a fab location and a beautiful building and furniture. It isnt cheap, though (3000 INR).
We had dinner at the garden, which was crowded with indian families. The food wasnt the best we had in Kerala, but it was ok.
The staff was very helpful. They helped us getting a train ticket the next day to Alapuzzha (it was sunday, and the train station had closed at 2 pm). They transferred us to a groundfloor room downstairs during the night, when a power failure left us without fan. That other room had an independent electrical system, and we got to sleep with A/C with no further charges.
