This place is a bird sanctuary itself, cottages in a huge garden plenty of trees and all kind of birds, far away from all noisy streets.

The place is not kept properly. Rooms had plate sized holes in them and was full of lizards. The rooms were also smelly. Service was very bad. Four rooms run by the owner himself. He is not able to manage the show by himself. Bad choice to stay in kumarakom!
