We as a group of six families stayed at Kanaka Beach House, Kannur recently. We were looking for small,decent guest house with good, basic facilities for overnight stay at Kannur. Kanaka Beach House was recommended by some of the friends and had acceptable review here at TripAdvisor too.
It is nicely located facing the beach with seven rooms. All rooms have nice view of the beach but rooms on the first floor have better view. Rooms are well appointed,spacious and are cleanly maintained too. They arrange for home made food so we opted for traditional Kerala food. Food was tasty and well prepared but as it is prepared at other place don't expect to be served on a plate or good presentation of food being served. As we were late in arriving food was bit cold for our liking too. They do arrange for traditional Kerala ayurvedic massage on demand which we couldn't try for the lack of time.
All in all we were pleasantly surprised by the clean, spacious rooms, by courteous, friendly staff, by the perfect location of the property. It's a nice perfect place for leisurely unwinding and kids would also enjoy the place as there is a nice little play area for them.
I do have some suggestions for owner Neetha, your staff are efficient and capable provide them with good uniform this augments the quality of the service. Try and improve the way you can serve your food by either preparing at site or by serving it hot with a decent presentation this will go long way in impressing your discerning guests.
