After reading good reviews we had booked this hotel through makemytrip.Sadly we were in for a big disappointment. We wanted to cancel our booking but the hotel cancellation policy was non refundable.Double room size is very small and bathroom was very dirty.Inspite of complaining the housekeeping did not clean it.There was a damp smell in the room and the towels provided were stinking which were changed but was only a bit better.For a family/couple stay would not recommend it though if you want to just go for the domitory option it might be o.k. as it is cheaper. Tariff for the double room is very expensive for the kind of room that is provided. Would suggest the management to convert the double room also into a dormitory.For the same rate you will get better rooms in nearby hotel or even in a resort. Food is also very costly(e.g tea is for Rs50 when you will get it for Rs7 in a nearby restaurant).Would be good if the food is also reasonably priced.They have a dirty canal nearby which is the starting point for the boats and definately not situated 'along the dreamy backwaters'. There are lots of homestays right along the backwaters.You will get better option then this.
