Me and my family had stayed for 8 days a perfect 2bhk apartment with well equipped furnished flats, power backup, proper and polite staff which will help you in all types of transport and issues inside the apartment. The owner of the apartment was friendly and helped us in getting all the amenities needed for residing there. Staff are team of four who had helped us in making the time in living in Malgudi lively... Thanks Malgudi Holidays and it's team for a perfect stay ....

The name Malgudi Holidays is a catchy name. There is nothing great for the money and standards of a hotel .The walls of the rooms are damp. There is no proper Electricity supply and support system not there. There is a unbranded tv in the rooms and they don’t function. Total cost for the stay was four thousand plus per day with tea billing was for one hundred and ninty . I kept milk and curd in fridge and no news of them.

Dear All, We, Me and Marek travelled from Manchester, UK as part of our Business trip to Kerala. During the trip we stayed in Malgudi Holidays to attend one of my cousin's wedding. The host Arjun and team were extra ordinary with full support 24/7. Any queries raised attended in minutes like AC, Hot Water, Food, Medicine etc. A clean calm place in the city. But guaranteed you will feel relaxed with the facilities and services provided. Lots of informations about local attractions provided like leaflets and they even arrange local known tour guides with AC cars etc. Something we definitely recommend someone who would like to explore Kannur, the Northern Kerala. Transportation links Local Airport 30 minutes drive and railways station is just a walking distance. All the very best to the Malgudi Team and see you next time soon Thanks & Regards Unni & Marek from Manchester UK

You can appreciate Malgudi Holidays home stay if you look at it as a template for the Marigold Hotel movies. A totally run down place, but managed by an energetic and apologetic manager, cook, bellboy all rolled into one. But in all seriousness i think most of the Hostel movies were shot in this place. They have gone a bit far in trying to portray a very homely image by giving you used bed sheets and pillow covers and towels, with stains and marks from the countless others who have used them before. The bathrooms are a work of art with rusted mirrors and open live wires sticking out of the wall where a hot water heater should have been. You get that lovely thrill that you will be shocked to death while taking a shower. Quite an exhilarating experience. Honestly, even after all the negative feedback on this forum, the promoters/owners of the place have done nothing to rectify any of the complaints shows their interest in the place. Like i said before, the only positive about this place is Akash the one man army who does his best to make things work with the limited resources he has.

When we made a booking, we had booked one two bedroom apartment and one standard double bedroom. At least, that is what the booking confirmation said. When we arrived, they first showed us the apartment. The apartment was clean and spacious. Rooms and bathrooms neat. The rooms were air conditioned. When we asked about the additional room, we were directed to another apartment, where we were asked to share an apartment with another family. We were not prepared for that. It should have been mentioned to us on the website at the time of booking that individual bedrooms are given in two bedroom apartments which would be shared with other guests. Although Akash, the host, was gracious to understand our problem and gave us additional beds in the two bedroom apartment, I think it was rather unfair to us. A request to the owners, please don't make your guests share an apartment since they would like their own privacy. Rooms apart, the location is nice. Roads were very narrow for cars, which made parking quite a hassle, but once the cars are parked, everything you need is at walking distance - the beach, supermarket, hotels. The kitchen was not well stocked with cutlery. There was barely any soap to wash dishes. The additional beds we requested were brought immediately, but one of the mattresses was torn and in a very bad condition. As mentioned by someone else, the linen wasn't very clean. One of the bedrooms didn't have a functioning bolt. We were rather doubtful of the quality of the water in the can which was put in the room for us. Akash was very nice, and communicated with us very well. He tried his best to make our stay comfortable. The place is peaceful and quiet. Overall, the stay was decent. Not good for families perhaps, but when you're with a group of friends, those little problems barely matter.

A very peaceful accommodation we loved so much. The staffs were very co operative and helped us very much. The room was so spacious and comfortable. Bed was fine. Bathroom was clean. But restaurant was not available. The breeze from the sea was soothing. The facilities were to international standards. Well recommended.

I had booked a 2 bedroom apartment here on my way back to Kochi from Kollur. Reached Kannur by 9PM and was shocked to see the approach road to this place. I drive a XUV and the road was just wide enough to accommodate a XUV. If you are not careful, then a scratch or two is guaranteed. If you are driving alone then all the more difficult because you need someone to navigate you on the other side to successfully get past this road. The place is very sleepy and I think it has only one staff. I saw only one person doing everything. He does check-in, payments, housekeeping, room service and what not. May be because of this apartment needs some good cleaning and maintenance. I paid Rs.5000.00 for one night and I except a more cleaner price for that money. After we checked in only, the caretaker realized that bathroom is not cleaned. He cleaned it immediately. Then there was no set top box with TV. He got it from somewhere and connected it. There is no restaurant here and so we ordered from outside through him. They charged Rs.80 as service charge for ordering and serving the food at room. There was no clean plates in the Kitchen. We had to clean the plates ourselves. Their description in booking sites mention about fully equipped kitchen. Kitchen only had a fridge and few plates. Is this what they mean by fully equipped??? There is no free Wi-Fi, no power backup. Even though description says air conditioned, AC is available only in bedrooms and living room does not have AC. TV is available only in living room and not in bedrooms. Bed linens were not clean as you would expect.Attitude of the staff is really good and he was very approachable and helpful. But overall this place needs some serious maintenance and cleaning. With out that rent of 5K is not worth it.

First thing first, the place is located in the city of Kannur but it is secluded from all the hassles of the City tucked in by lanes. Akash welcoming nature and he is always available for any help. We were given the room with shared kitchen and living area, when it was told to akash we want independent service apartment, he readily arranged for one. Kerala welcomed us with Open Arms, some of the Nicest People, they make you feel at Home. Now Kannur Down with an Awesome stay at Malgudi and discovering the undiscovered territories of KERALA. KERALA is AWESOME.

There were some hairs and dust what looked like swept and kept on the corner. Toilets looked like being a used one, not as cleaned. Have told the attendant to clean the room when we went out for shopping, came back to find it in the same condition. Have to change 2 rooms at checkin due to above cleanliness and AC issues. The 3rd one we settled for is also not completely floor cleaned( as mentioned above hairs, dust). Positives are away from traffic, calm, home like in the midst of residential area. Have to drive through a very narrow Lane in the last leg (100 meters) and scratched my cars (sedan) side mirror against the wall in a turn in that narrow lane just before the hotel.
