We have been staying in Vanamala for over 25 years but this time were quite disappointed. It was extremely over prized for the services and amenities. The property is very poorly maintained and food quality also was low. The location is the biggest advantage however due to the poor maintanance you will think twice before coming back.
I had stayed at the hotel after a long time. Between then and now , the wall papers have torn, the bathroom mirror light does not work and the small parking space in the frontage of the hotel cannot anymore cater for the needs of the guests. Clearly , the maintenance of the building is overdue. The good things are the helpful staff and minimal but tasty food they served. The location is a great plus.
We stayed overnight on 12th Dec 2019 at Gokulam Vanamala when we visited Guruvayur temple. A very comfortable place very close to the Eastern Gate of Guruvayur temple with good amenities and a fine restaurant with tasty vegetarian food. Staff are very helpful. Has parking facility with 24 hour security. The hotel staff helps in arranging temple offerings.
I have stayed here for a couple of days during 2019 Feb. It's only a stone's throw from the temple. The accommodation is comfortable and well maintained. The management is good. very moderately priced. I would strongly recommend this to you.
Had been there fir a nite Bit old hotel Restaurant ok Have a good curio shop inside Decent room but needs maintenance as paint is coming out Overall ok Will recommend to people going there who are not that choosy
