Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 14, 2014

This hotel lobby is located at the basement of a shopping centre, so the initial impression was not impressive. The hotel actually is located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the shopping centre.The corridors was simple but elegant. The rooms were nice , cozy and very clean. It has a good view of the kannur city. The bathrooms was also neat and clean with continous running hot water. The breakfast is complimentary and the the in house restaurant is simple but tasty. The best part is the location, its only walking distance from the rear railway station gate and the central bus stand.Best for a business trip or when visiting kannur with friends. The best mode of transport is by autos and they run by meter and don't overcharge.

Room Tip: Rear facing rooms don't have much of a view

Malabar residency is just 2 mins by walk from Kannur Main Station. Close to the bus stand too. I travelled there with my parents & the stay was plesant. The rooms were mint fresh and very spacious. The washroms were very clean and the breakfast was good. Only concern i had was with hot water in washrooms. But since the weather was hot enough the normal water was good enough. The best part about the stay was the clean and spacious room with comfortable beds. My parents didnt feel they were out of home. I will visit again on my next trip to Kannur

The management is very customer service oriented, they went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. We had a wedding reception and several guests from out-of-town stay there. Their recpetion banquet hall is very well lit and a great place for a party or get-together.

Room Tip: Get the rooms on the top floor, they have better finishes and ventilation.

Lovely place - well if you can condone the fact that this hotel is atop a commercial plaza, you'll have a grand time. The reception staff is not up to the mark, most of the guys are dumb and irritatingly slow but the food is simple yum. Esp. the 24-carat Kerela Thali. Proximity to a couple of great beaches makes life even better. Avoid late night walks, the road rage can prove fatal if you are not careful. The balconies on top floors are scary - the railings are horrifyingly low in height - not advisable for children, elderly or people with vertigo.

All in all, a good place to spend your time in Kannur.

Room Tip: If you book through the web route, don't rely much on the marketing guy who disappears into thin...

I stayed in Malabar residency with my family and it was quite enjoyable.

It was my third stay in Malabar Residency.

5 minutes walk from Railway station and close to the business and shopping centres.

Reception staff was cordial and the service in general is good. We had room service order for Dinner that too was good especially the Kerala food. Breakfast at the restaurant was limited but it was ok with us.

The room is spacious, clean and overlooking the lush green trees and the railway racks. From the balcony it was a good view.

Had a very pleasant stay here for two days. Centrally located, very close to the railway station and the shopping sites.Spacious rooms with good a/c, clean bathrooms. Had nothing to complain about. Rooms cleaned and towels replaced, daily newspaper, round the clock hot water, good room service, good restaurant with decent food. The complimentary buffet breakfast was good. Staff were very friendly and overall had a very comfortable stay at this hotel

However the hotel management needs to look into the musty smell that exists in the room and the reception. I guess that is from the upholstery that needs replacement. Also the bathroom could have toilet paper rolls.
