The hotel modern but the facilities in the room was lacking. Had to request for toilet rolls hand towel and change of mug and kettle, both not washed. The laundry in the hotel was not working so they gave the clothes to be washed by an outside laundry. The laundry was collected early morning at 7.00am and promised to deliver at 4.00pm which did not happen. Delivered next day in the morning. Housekeeping have a few new employees not trained at all. There is no mini refrigerator in the room. The best experience in terms of service was from - the front office manager Harishma and her team of Jebin, Sayant and Shaji. - the restaurant Barkha in the basement where the staff were pleasant and provided very good service. Heard there are problems within the management team. Bala Balakrishnan

Location of the hotel is good. Near by railway station and next to Lulu Sarees. Good restaurant / juice bar's are nearby. I think this was a very old hotel with slightly renovated rooms. Rooms are ok, bead quality is good. Washrooms are very old. But was clean and tidy. Old AC's - no use of remote. No room service in night. There is restaurant in the basement of hotel. I had lunch it was good but very delayed. Complimentary breakfast was limited and it was fully cold. Buffet could have been better for the cost paid. Overall family can stay, nice location, very old rooms. An Average Hotel but not worth the star's and the cost.

Had booked this hotel on the basis of positive reviews and honestly was not let down. The hotel is just 500 meters from Kannur railway station. Check in was quick as I checked into their residency room. The room is quite spacious with all amenities and toiletries you may require just in case you forget. The restaurant in the hotel provides great food and the complimentary breakfast has a wide spread. check out their Kerala thali which is tasty as well pocket friendly. One suggestion is that the hotel management should put tata sky as most of the channels were Malayalam and since I come from Maharashtra would have appreciated the regional news to connect with my state. Also the buffet breakfast should start atleast at 7 am and it would be worthwhile to pack atleast some sandwich, fruits and juice for those who have to leave early. All in all a nice experience will come back again.

Nothing to complain about. Just clean and hygiene rooms. Breakfast is unlimited and delicious. Service provided was top notch well enough to pay a next visit. Quite the atmosphere which wowed me though the building is close to the railway station. Been here with family and as an individual for official matters.

Sorry for your bad experience. Lift on your arrival date got complaint at night 08.00 pm. Curfew was imposed in Kerala from night 10.00 pm to morning 06.00 am, so, Lift person can repair the Lift only on the next day. We are extremely saying sorry for your difficulty. Sir, you checked in on 31.08.2021 at 10.50 Pm and checked out on 01.09.2021 at 09.08 AM. During your visit, we have provided you with dinner on 31.08.21 and breakfast on 01.09.21. . Breakfast was provided on that day with two south Indian dishes followed by toast butter jam, egg to order, cut fruits, fresh juice, and tea or coffee. As of now, we have made a spread-out buffet in the morning. There is no restriction for food timing to in-house Guests. The tea maker was available in the room. We never serve old food at our Hotel, which is the wrong statement. The hotel is having a 24-hour hot and cold water facility. Maybe a communication mistake has lead to your bad experience. We are sorry for that and look forward to serving you better next time
