“A reasonable place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

What I am jotting down is from the experience I had from just one nights stay at the Quilon Beach Hotel. I travelled with family, and was there for a family function at Kollam.
The rooms are neat, and cosy. The building is showing its age, and they can do well with a bit of maintenance here and there. But by and large, they do maintain good standard. For the rates for which the rooms are made available, they are reasonably good. But then I was taken aback when I found that the hotel is categorised as five star, and the rack rates touch 6000+ for the rooms with Lowest Tariff. For that rate, I would not have considered the arrangement very reasonable.
All rooms seem to have a view of the beach. The view is simply beautiful and one which I would love to wake up to every day in my life. The morning sight of the long beach, being gently washed by the waves of Arabian sea lured every one out, despite a late sleep on the previous night. There is a gate opening in to the beach for the hotel and we were told that is the easiest way to reach the beach. But our enthusiasm and excitement was dampened finding that the just beside the gate the garbage from the hotel is piled up and it is indeed hard to walk past the place without covering one’s nose. The Hotel being named after the beach, and the beach obviously being the biggest attraction, they should have kept the pathway to the beach neat and tidy, if not with an ambience.
I did not have much time to access the service. But I did not feel any hitch either at check in or check out.
The food was really good. We had a breakfast. The Buffet Spread had some thing to satisfy every appetite.
Overall, the place is really nice one to stay. I find it is rated in category “Five Star Luxuary”. Please do not expect that in reality. But then the actual rates are also much below that standards. So, one may treat it is as reasonable.
There is a pool, but it was by my standards over occupied. No other facilities were noticed by me. However, the proximity to the beach and the gandhiji children's park will compensate for all those absence.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to have a view to the beach. But it would appear that the rooms on higher floors may...

The room we got was a sea facing one, breathtaking view I must say, the infinity swimming pool is a good size and gorgeous with a beautiful view of the ocean in the distance and there are quite different restaurant options each with top quality food and service. It is the service generally that stands out, all of the staff whether in the restaurants, at the pool or on reception make a huge effort to provide model customer
service - they are confident in their roles and very personable

We had a lovely time in the hotel. The breakfast every morning was our highlight of the day, you MUST try the Indian dishes, we had the iddiyapam, idlis, sambar, puris, and wow they were amazing! We absolutely loved this hotel would love to return if we got a chance again.

I had stayed in this hotel twice in the last 5 months. First in December 2012 for 4 days and then in March 2013. There was a lot of difference for these stays. In December as the occupancy was more the hotel had everything in good condition. In March, they had very less occupancy and we had to ask for hot water every time we need to take a bath. No buffet breakfast, even the bars were dull as business was dull and the guys were not in a mood to cater to a couple of us. The room rates were the same both the period, but the services were not there.

But the hotel has the potential to be one of the best in Quilon, if they manage to keep their service up.

Room Tip: So never go there at the off season, as they are more interested in cutting costs rather than mainta...

The Hotel is right in front of the Kollam Beach, Kerala.
The hotel is excellent and we stayed for 2 Nights, specially the New Year time 30th and 31st.
The food is fair enough but the best part was the view of the Beach from the hotel room, awesome.
Another best part was the swimming pool which was so good that when you are inside the pool you are aligned with the beach water, so the feeling is that you are in the beach relaxing.
So I can recommend to stay in the hotel. It is expensive but we managed to get a good deal :-)

In reality this is a low four star hotel, but none the worse for it. I stayed for a night before catching the ferry to Alleppey, which the hotel had kindly bought me tickets for in advance.

The staff in general were excellent but the restaurant were especially helpful, ordering delicious South Indian specialties for me. Although the restaurant doesn't serve alcohol there is a reasonably priced bar on the first floor. It is very good.

Note that the beach is not really a tourist beach, It is a little dirty and polluted by oil close the water's edge.

I recently stayed at this hotel during my vacation, I was impressed with the facilities and the staff right from the beginning. Rooms are very clean, staffs are courteous. Location is also good as it is just a km away from Kollam railway station (though we had come here by flight, we went to Alleppey by train). The breakfast which is complimentary really good and the ambiance is not bad at all. The staffs at the hotel are helpful and friendly. I would return to this hotel if I ever need to travel to Kollam

Room Tip: rooms on the west side gives a good view of the beach

Me and my wife had the opportunity to stay at the Beach Orchid ,Kollam for one night during the month of september 2012,wherein not only did we enjoy their hospitality ,warm reception but also the scenic beauty of the calm and serene Kollam beach.Our stay was made comfortable and worthwhile by its proximity from the beach.On the whole it was a wonderful and pleasant ambience with the superb combination of a multi cuisine experience.And i would strongly recommend it for a long stay in kollam,Kerala for all those who want to encash the time they are there to stay and this was a truly a rejuvenating experience.
