This was a for a LTC holiday with The Wife and Junior. The period of the visit was 06 Dec (Sat) - 09 Dec (Tue), 2014. We had come in on flight AI 657 DEL-BOM-CJB-CCJ on 06 Dec (Sat), 2014, and set out back on 09 Dec (Tue), 2014 on flight AI 658 CCJ-CJB-BOM-DEL. Kozhikode isn't that much of a holiday destination, but we wanted a getaway, and wanted to see the beaches, and if possible, go to Wayanad. The hotel staff was very nice, courteous and helpful in all respects. The room was superb with a good view of a large field outside. The location: P. B. No. 114, Bank Road, 673001 Kozhikode, ensured that we were within Walking distance of good food joints, and public transportation options to the Kozhikode Beach, the Beypore Beach. It was a bit pricey for my middle-class sensitivities, but the stay was memorable. The complimentary buffet breakfast was nice and filling.
My family recently went on an imprompt trip to Kozhikode (Calicut). My brother-in-law who is a member of AFMI ( American Federation Of Muslims Of Indian Origin) and other delegates from the U. S. A and Canada who were here for a convention had already booked rooms at Hyson Heritage. Hyson Heritage is a fabulous hotel. It's hospitality was amazing. The front-desk staff was very co-operative in assisting us with the check-in and check-out. They even helped us in providing information on sight-seeing places. The entire staff of the hotel, from the doorman, bell-boy, receptionists to the house-keeping staff were very friendly and generous. The location of the hotel is also in the heart of the city. The beach, shopping centres, malls and hotels with various cuisines were just walkable distance. We didn't get a chance to dine at its restaurant Benhur, but my brother-in-law said it had some delicious food. Another thing we liked was every morning with the newspaper they gave two complimentary breakfast coupons. They had a wide range of breakfast buffet from cereal, French toast, to idli sambar and appams. The hotel staff also provided us a prayer mat to offer our daily prayers and the staff even showed us the direction of prayer. There was a holy book in one of the drawers as well. The hotel provided us with all the basic daily needs like soaps, shampoos, oil, moisturiser, toothpaste, brush, etc. There was even a sewing kit, stationary kit and a first -aid kit. The house-keeping staff did a job well-done. Our entire family was content and pleased with our stay at Hyson Heritage in Calicut. We would love to check-in at Hyson whenever we go to Calicut in the future and I assure you, we will be satisfied again and again.
In August 2015, we had to take a short and hectic work trip to Calicut; a city well known for its historic ports, old & lively heritage markets and the delicious food. After the completing the task assigned to us the travel to the Hyson hotel from Calicut Airport seemed lengthy since we were so exhausted after the long day but actually it was around 23 Km only and properly situated at the prime location inside the city. The check-in process was smooth and the staff was courteous & helpful. The room was neat, spacious, good and aptly cooled with all the necessary facilities and pleasantries. It was refreshing to get fresh and relax in the room. Since we checked in well after the dinner time we got a chance to taste the delicacies from the Famous and Old Paragon Restaurant which was at a walking distance from the Hotel. WiFi facility was available at moderate speed. The room was so calm and cosy that I slipped into sleep with the TV on. Woke up feeling fresh the next day late. The view from room was just the morning traffic. We had the complimentary breakfast which had a number of variety healthy options to choose from and a live counter for the Kerala delicacy Appam and other egg items. The checkout process was also smooth and fast. We made it to the airport on time to board the flight back to Mumbai. Overall it was a nice and a pleasant short stay at Hyson Heritage.
Stay was cosy, food was healthy and my experience awesome. Room was another home to me. Food was very healthy, rich, and tasty. Service was excellent, done on routine and hygenic. TV was new and all channels were beamed including my mother tongue channels. Home serivce was helpful and at my call. Overall my stay was homely and relaxed and what else does one need away from home. The location too was very near and well connected to the beach and railway station. Only one word to sum it up - Awesome feeling!
I visited Calicut for work, the client booked me into Hyson Heritage. The front office staff were pleasant and helpful, the vegetarian part of the multi-cuisine buffet lunch was excellent (I am vegetarian). I was particularly pleased with the Keralite specialties on offer, like 'aviyal', 'kaalan', various chutneys and papads, and most intriguing, a delicious payasam made of whole moong dal. Breakfast in the next morning was good too, including the fluffiest idlis that i have ever eaten. However, while we are on food i must mention that the vegetable cutlet that i ordered in room service that evening had a strong odour of non-veg and i was unable to eat it. I think the kitchen had not taken care to use a different oil for frying the two kinds of food. This is my only negative experience in the hotel. The room was large and comfortable with a pleasant view. It was very clean, and the staff were helpful and friendly. All necessary amenities were available, like electric kettle, toiletries (including tooth care kit, not usually supplied), and thoughtful extras like a basic sewing kit and some stationery items like paper clips, notepad and rubberbands. The hotel arranged a cab to the airport on my request. It was a happy stay, and i have already recommended the hotel to my family and friends.
