Very good rooms, nicely designed, neat and clean with all basic amenities. hotel staff was very good. This hotel is good value for money where you can stay with your family. The place is close to the place where you can enjoy elephant rides. Also close to the place where you can enjoy Kathakalli and Kerala's marshal arts show.

Staff is very warm and friendly. Food very delicious.Located away from the city. The only drawback is its accessibility to the restaurant which is 3 filght of steps down the ground level. So for people like me who have knee problems have to order food in the room only which is charged extra. The hotel room can be made bigger...
