Moosa and Faiza make their guests welcome at their magnificent old house. The rooms are huge and interesting. The food from Faiza's kitchen is a real local treat, we even helped make her famous fish biryani. Walking from the property is not possible but many local sights can be reached by tuk tuk or taxi.

Stayed for 2 nights. Moosa is quite a character and he and his wife Faiza are excellent hosts. Food throughout our stay was of a very high quality - and we enjoyed our trip down to the fish market to collect our evening meal! As an old colonial building the furnishings and accommodation certainly reflect that era but only add to the experience. Highly recommended.

If you want a genuine insight into life in Kerala and Keralan cooking at its finest then Ayesha Manzil is perfect. From the hustle bustle of the fish market and the huge variety of local produce to witnessing the amazing spectacle of the Hindu Theyyam Festival. Faiza and Moosa are perfect hosts and Faiza cooks amazing meals but in line with other comments I have seen, the house is faded elegance and I genuinely hope it survives in today's increasingly sterile hotel environments.

Moosa and Fiada welcomed us to their homestay with jasmine flowers and a refreshing glass of home made lime soda – a Keralan specialty. They made us feel welcome, their staff took our bags, and showed us around. The house sits atop a hill overlooking the Arabian sea. The house was clearly once grand, with a sweeping veranda and a gracious entryway. But the roof tiles are broken, the pool is a murky green, there are some cracked windows and the landscaping has been neglected. The interior of the house is dark (a necessity in the heat and humidity of Thalessary), with huge wooden furniture dating from the time the time the house was home to British tea-traders. The rooms are large, spare, with once-grand bathrooms and massive beds draped with mosquito netting. Our room had good

A home stay, we were the only guests at the time and the welcome and hospitality were second to none. We only wish we had stayed for more than one night as there was so much more to see. The accommodation was more homely than 4 star but suited our requirements. We were sorry that Faiza was absent during our stay but this did not affect the quality of the food, Eggy bread (Indian Style) for breakfast. Would thoroughly recommend, real Indian hospitality.

Food exquisite and delicious home cooking. Very welcoming. Mr Moosa is a star and his wife Faiza is a jewel. A unique property of historic importance so one should not expect the latest version of facilities. Personally I cannot recommend this place because facilities are poor eg no hot water in my room but others did. Bathroom not cleaned well, electric sockets did not work. Air conditioning too noisy to use at night. Room housekeeping almost non existent.

Have a bit of mixed feeling about this Homestay. Owner and staff are fab and very helpful keeping hospitality high on agenda. With simple asks we’re giving tour of the city visiting the fort, 200+year old mosque, markets, weavers, tobacco factory etc. Big kudos to Alex, our interim tour-guide. Rooms and house are spacious, originally decorated from the 1900’s yet in need of a bit of renovation adding slight modern touch. (Just a drop) Food is more than good, actually excellent, top! What stroke most, in need of urgent revamping, in need of upkeep, is the driveway, garden and pool. It’s a shame to see estate being neglected, not well looked at. Overall would recommend the place Rooms +++ Food +++++ Staff +++++ Price/quality +++(+)

I have grown to love generously proportioned heritage bungalow and this property perched on a hill with an outlook across the Arabian Sea is one to savour. Dinner on the terrace is pure magic where food is the ultimate accolade, the heady aromas of spice and its so nice to wake up in the morning to the smell of fried battura and pathiri with heavenly ground rice and egg dumplings with sweet cardamom syrup. For me it was the fried spiced sea mullet with a salsa but when i tasted the fish biryani. My thanks eternal for this experience.

We could not have been made to feel more welcome by Faiza and her team . The rooms had a lot of colonial charm . We were taken to see a local religious festival which was an amazing experience and the local villagers made us so welcome not an opportunity to miss . The food was incredible and the cooking lesson fun , so was the shopping in the market A great experience .

After a very tiring, 1½ hour late, 8 ½ hour train journey to Thalassery we were taken for the short journey from station to Ayisha Manzil in a vintage Ambassador taxi; delighted for the opportunity to experience that iconic car. We were warmly greeted by Faiza, Moosa was apparently away. The 19thC colonial house is lovely, with wonderful wooden floors, antique furniture and family treasures in beautiful cabinets. The bedroom was huge, with a four-poster double bed each, both draped with a net. The dressing/bathroom area was down large wooden steps, not too easy for a night-time visit! The shower was very grand, architectural may best describe it, with shiny white tiles and sharp corners and definitely not “non-slip”. You may need your own toiletries here, as only a mini bar of
