Stayed there for a night in Nov 2013. We stayed in a villa, and the rooms were nice and clean. The bed was comfortable, the service was good.
The hotel is located in a quiet area and has an excellent location on lake Vembanad. The hotel has a good pool located right in front of the lake which is very nice to hang out around on a lazy day.
Then only downside was that the hotel is located in somewhat remote area and therefore there are no good food options. The hotel does serve dinner, but it wasn't great for vegetarians for the amount they charge.
