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.
Overall experience in the hotel was average. The hotel is located in a convenient location and was easy to find the hotel, around one and half hour drive from the bus stand. Surroundings of the hotel was bad. There was no security in the hotel. Staff service in the hotel was good, helpful and quick in service. There was no delay while check-in and check-out. There were no activities and sightseeing trip in the hotel. Taste of food was good with variety in the food menu, pricing of food was reasonable. The appearance of the hotel was average. The rooms are spacious and well-maintained, clean pillows, bedspreads with amenities like AC, TV in working condition and geyser was not working. The rooms did not have a view. There were no 24 hours hot water facilities. It was not value for the money paid and not recommendable to other travellers. They should provide driving directions and service in the hotel. My home town is Kurnool district and the mother tongue is Telugu. I stayed in the hotel on a honeymoon trip during the month of September 2014. Q

Backwater retreat is a real treat for peace lovers. If you are looking for some quiet time, away from the hustle bustle of tourist places, this is it. The best is the river flowing right under your balcony with the cute canoes and quaint fishermen. Not much choice in food but what you get is a pure Keralite home made fresh treat. The owner Mr. Kurien looks after each thing personally and is great host. While I was travelling alone, the place and its people felt to be the safest and most helpful ones. They also arrange for houseboat stay and a tour of the area at comfortable rates. But this is not a place for those who are looking for 5-star luxury or a buzz of activities. I had gone on a writing break and it was perfect for that.
