This is great property by KTDC. it is for the nature lovers. It could have been maintained slightly better but I won't mind that as it's difficult when you are around nature. We visited here in November and stayed for 2 nights. This is a large property with a great view, a bird sanctuary next to hotel. You don't need...

Nice backwater property .... need more maintenance Food is OK type . Maintenance need to be worked on. Backwater in the property is not that great as visible in the pics. You can try this place if you don't have any other option available. Overall it is mediocre experience.

Location is good but some how we felt that since it is government hotel cleanness was a problem. In season they charge twice price but the cleanness was not that good for that price. It was not dirty but average clean.

Rooms & Property: The property is huge and great for walks surrounded by greenery all...

The surroundings of the resort makes us more relaxing and the rooms are more of a Tree house model rather than the normal resorts. The rooms are clean and tidy and there are several other facilities available. including the bird sanctuary You can walk around the hotel environment which is a very good time pass.
