Excellent location of the hotel

Posted 20 Jul, 2017

My destination Thrissur was a very nice place with an excellent location of the hotel because the hotel was opposite to the railway station. I went there with my family and I found the front office was very good in behavior. They provided good services and the room with AC and provided other facilities also. They provided very good food. Other activities like playground were also provided by the hotel. I and my family also stayed another hotel there in Thrissur in the month of August. The location of that hotel was not up to the mark. The appearance of the hotel was good. They gave me an excellent room but there was no restaurant to take food there and there were no other activities.

I will definitely recommend this hotel.

Posted 16 Jun, 2017

Thrissur was a good destination, the location of the hotel was very good, the rangoli decoration on the ground was appealing to the eyes. It was very convenient for me to reach the hotel. There was also a nice garden in the hotel. The hotel looked good from outside and the reception was spacious and clean, and the lobby was also neat and clean. The overall service of the hotel was very good, anything ordered in the hotel was given to me on time and staff were ready always to help. The rooms were good spacious and clean it was an AC room. There was a balcony in the room with a nice view, the washroom was clean and well maintained. The food was not as per my taste, the quality of the food was not that great. The hotel didn't have any extra activities like spa, gym or swimming pool. It was a business trip for me. The hotel was booked from OYO Rooms I am not sure of my next travel. I will definitely recommend this hotel to other travelers.
