We took the train from Kottayam at evening and we booked an AC compartment. The toilets were okay and the food was actually home made. However, one can buy snacks, juice, coffee and tea and even dinner from the train itself. They offer biriyani, chappathi and masala dosa. Snacks consists of vada, veg cutlet, etc. I don't recommend to have dinner especially biriyani, it isn't up to the expectations. However, one should try out snacks and coffee/tea. The bedding provided in the AC compartment was really good.

I and my brother had to to come to Chennai regarding his admission in SRM university and decided to stay in Hotel Pandian as it was recommended by his friend.

The hotel is good for people who are looking value for money, the setting when one enters into the hotel is quiet average....more »

Overall it was ok. We had a nice time, our TTR was good enough to arrange us two births for comfortable travel. We did not eat food from train we had parcel our food and water. When we reached Chennai it was early morning, but there was pre-paid taxi and auto, so it was easy for us to locate the place and we had a good trip over there.

We started from Sriharikota, Nellore, AP to Kottayam, with stay at Trichy (PLA Krishna INN) along with my family including 1 yr old baby. The trip was overall good. We did not have any problem with food till Trichy, after which getting good hotels was a bit difficult.

Trip till Trichy is monotonous as we have 4 or 6 lane roads. From Trichy we went through Dindugal, Theni, Kambam, Kumily to Kottayam. This stretch is not so smooth, with lot of potholes in Dindugal to Theni route. Road driving through the ghats is a very good experience.
Car Type:
  • Hatchback
This route has:
  • Petrol pumps
  • Accomodation
Route Taken:Grand Southern Trunk Rd/தேசிய நெடுஞ்சாலை 45 and Kollam - Theni Hwy

Trivandrum Mail is ideal train as it reaches early morning to Kottayam. Immediate cabs are available outside the station and reasonable price to the resorts based on the distance. Better take AC train coach to enjoy the journey. Toilets are to be cleaned in every train in India.
