Dumpy place!!! The bathroom was scary and afraid of getting amoebic dysentery just by being in the bathroom. The restaurant downstairs is awful and food was bad.The bar looked like a dark and dank place where you could hide and never be found because no one would willingly go in there to find you! Run down in every regard. Avoid...

Lovely large room with huge sitting area. Bathroom was excellent with 3 different showers! The view from the window looked down the river and we saw a lovely sunset. Reception staff rang to check that everything was as it should be in the room. Such a shame we were only there for one night.

We didn't stay at the hotel but visited the bar instead and found it to be very good. If like us you are travelling independently then finding somewhere for a cold beer in the evening is essential. It's the only bar in Kottayam however there is a government beer shop fairly near by but alcohol can only be drunk on...

Located a little away from the city centre, ideal for those who travel by road.This property is well known being one of the oldest high end place in Kottayam and seems to be undergoing some renovations. Rooms were alright although it could be updated, service was good.
