You could stay peacefully

Posted 23 May, 2017

On my family trip I visited Kumarakom. I went there along with my family in the month of April 2017. I booked it directly. I am basically from Coimbatore. The location of the hotel was far away from the town and it was free from the pollution. The appearance of the hotel was like a village type of big house. The front office staff was cooperative and there were only 2 boys for the service but they were helpful. The room was comfortable and it was well kept. It was a wooden make old room. They have served the Kerala special type Chicken fry and the fish also they have served the North Indian foods. The food was tasty. We have tried the fishing it was good. My suggestion to the other travelers: If you want to stay away from the disturbance. This hotel is the best place where you could stay peacefully. I would like to suggest to the hotelier: There should be a travel desk facility.

Nice experience

Posted 29 Mar, 2012

We stayed here for 2 days. The Booking was done via Agoda( again thanks and Cheers). The Room was very good, clean. This hotel is located in Aymanam near Kumarakom. We enjoyed the ambience and spent most of our time in the balcony ( with Books, Cup of tea ) watching the Kingfishers and an occasional boat. It was beautiful. Mr. Kurian is an amazing host - friendly and ready to help - he helped us make plans and next day we went to see Vembanad lake in a house boat. He made all arrangements ( Pick up and Drop in a cab and house boat as well. All we had to do is go see and come back and pay everything while checking out. When u sit in the balcony with a cup of tea, you can actually hear only the birds chirp and no other noise. nothing like it . this is situated a bit far from the hustle bustle of everyday life. It provides a quiet atmosphere if you're looking for a getaway from your humdrum existence. Highly Recommended !!

Washrooms were maintained hygienically

Posted 2 Jan, 2015

The purpose of the hotel visit was the family vacation. The hotel was located outside the main city. The hotel was surrounded by dense forest. The staff in the hotel were excellent in service. Especially the bellboy was very cooperative and friendly. The check in and checkout was done smoothly. The appearance of the hotel from inside and outside was beautiful. The furnishings like bed sheets, blankets and pillows were maintained neat and clean. The washrooms were maintained hygienically. The rooms were spacious and hygienically maintained. I did see the lake view from the room balcony. I would suggest that the hotel should provide the intercom facility. The food was reasonable. It was tasty and hygienic. The overall experience was nice.
