“Good Place to be in”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Nice place to stay in calicut / kozhikode.

the service was good and food is true to keralite style.

the hotel gives a typical kerala feel. i stayed in room 306 that has a pool view.

veg grilled sandwich one must try. we have even hosted a banquet meeting that went smoothly.

Ms. Janaki sales manager was quick in response, whenever needed. i really appreciate.

The only suggestion would be to modernise the rooms to the new needs like sound proof, even 20 volume in TV is noisy to neighbours and there is no door bell. toileteries were not placed upon arrival.

The location of the hotel is fairly average, about a 10 minute walk from the beach. The road leading up to the hotel is quite a disaster, almost makes you feel like you're crossing slums to get here!

They have the regular Taj fare at their restaurants and very friendly staff, but I wouldn't visit here unless traveling on business.

Room Tip: Pool facing

Hotel is used by Company ,heard Stories from Colleagues,therefore expected the worst .
After now staying here whole Day ,i have to say I actually like it here .
Start with the employees ( Driver,security,reception,roomservice,housekeeping ,spa)- all are exceptional friendly and helpful .
Room i stayed in ,yes outdated ,yes somehow rusty in bathroom but overall okey .
Clean thats what im looking for .
Pool is fine ,wellness spa is very nice and i enjoyed my treatment .
Food around is reasonable and just good quality .
Overall ,if the management would put some effort in detailing again the rooms to make them spotless i would give 2 thumbs up .
As it is right now ,only one thumb .and another big one again for the People working which make this Hotel just delightful despite the aged appearance.

Stayed for one night in the hotel, the sleep quality was good, the breakfast was very good (specially teh live counter is extremely good), the spa is nice and resonable priced.
The rooms leave a lot to be desired, they are clean but a little run down.. Over all still the best option in Calicut

Room Tip: The rooms with the pool view are better as the other side is practically no view

Nice location, very friendly staff and delicious food. But hard to believe that this is a Taj property.
Stayed for a diabetes lecture.
Rooms are ordinary.Not at all up-to the standards of a star hotel. Ill maintained toilets.Old fashioned accessories.The only advantage was the presence of health faucet(Bidet shower), as an additional fitting which was seen attached to the bottom of the washbasin pipe line!! Requested for an US adapter socket; the boy came with European and then with several choices including the ones I sought. All staffs were simple, very friendly and accommodative.Rooms are clean: but overall infra structure is poor.

Stayed for 2 nights in Sep for a business trip. Don't go there expecting a typical Taj property else you would be disappointed... expect a good Calicut hotel & you would be a happier person. The hotel location is excellent & its extremely central. The staff is very warm, polite & prompt. However, the propert is ageing & it clearly showed that the management hasn't put much of an effort to renovate it to fit in with the typical Taj type of properties. The room is above average as per Calicut standards, the pool is nice & they have excellent food. I ordered Mezze platter & tomato basil soup for room service and loved both. They have a good breakfast spread as well.. A nice variety of juices, salads and everything else that you would expect from a good hotel. The bathrooms were slightly disappointing since they looked extremely old & had stains in places. Visit Paragon which is a nearby restaurant for a good meal. For the coffee lovers, there is a CCD (one of the very few in Kozhicode) at a walking distance from the hotel.

Love the Hotel and the service. They have a very nice Ayurveda Centre which is pretty authentic and a must try. Very quiet and relaxed place to go on a break. Also the Chefs are very helpful and innovative with their cuisine if you are up to trying some new local dishes

Room Tip: go for a Pool facing room
