Hotel Elite Guruvayur

Reviewed 14 November 2011

I reached this hotel on 23rd Oct 2011 at around 7.00 PM with advance telephone booking, but the receptionist wasn't able to find it. Later after checking for some time they allotted me a stand room, which I was "forced" to satisy as there weren't any other rooms available and my stay was just for a night!

The location of the hotel is fantastic, just 3 mins walk from the temple. The infrastructure is very old, with old doors, bed and cupboard. The room was small but it was clean. The rooms need immediate attention with respect to security (the door lock was pathetic).

The pure veg restaurant is really good,

Note: Make sure that you book in advance if possible and email or else you may land up in surprises as rooms in Guruvayur fills fast on days with lot marriages!

Room Tip: Book in advance and get a confirmation!

Hotel is good, but service is very worst, Hotel managers /receptionist they won`t respond properly. but it is very near to temple, tea and coffee was not pleasant. if u don`t need any service from the hotel means u can stay there otherwise go for the best hotel.. not worth for money.

This hotel was always my first choice whenever I visited Guruvayur for the last 10 years. Neat surrroundings, nice staff, good food, ample parking and nearness to the temple.
However now I feel a bit strange to the hotel after my last visit a couple of months ago. The previous manager and excellent counter staff all left and the service mentality is lacking now. Rooms require the long felt renovation, some renovation work was going on when we visited there last time. I told the lobby staff about the bed bugs in the mattress. My son and family had a horrible night fighting with bed bugs.

Hope they do something about it.
Plus points: First it location, only walking distance from the temple on the main road at East Nada and also near to the Private Bus stand . Ample car parking space, Spacious corridor and ambling space. Good place to rest after a visit to the temple and watch the busy street below. Restaurant is reasonably clean, vegetarian food is OK, but not great...
Minus points: Rooms are a bit congested, hardly any space left in the double room after the cot and a table and tv stand., Bathrooms require renovation urgently . No worthwhile room service to speak of.

An above average hotel to stay at Guruvayur within budget. It seems the friendly staff who were there all had left and the new staff is more business-minded than service minded.

The hotel is a nice hotel located just 2 mins walk from the temple entrance. We arrived at the Hotel at 11.30 pm but then also the hotel staff helped us. The Rooms were clean and the restroom was also neat.

The restaurant is separate. The food was not very pleasant and not served fresh.

The only sour part was that the security was very rude when we left the hotel.

This was one of the top hotels in the holy town, when I was a kid. Those days, we avoided the top-end ('Elite') for a simple ('appropriate' during pilgrimage?) accommodation. Elite was more aspirational.

Subsequently, when I travelled again, did not/could not stay there. So, this time, as I planned quite well in advance, that too for an off season, I opted for Elite. But then, when it comes to the crowd @ Guruvayoor, devotees say there is no 'off season'. Quite true... deotees keep coming, irrespective of season, just for one reason, total devotion!

The type of facility was not so 'elite', more like a good, old lodge. Yes, you can summon a room-boy with a bell, old type construction, but thankfully renovated bathrooms. With most of these hotels on solar-heaters instead of electric heaters/geyzers, hot water became a scarce commodity - courtesy cloudy/rainy weather!

But, among all these not so great news, there was a brilliant exception : FOOD, vegetarian. Just great, consistently session after session. Their south Indian meals was superb. Very courteous, friendly staff, though elderly team :)

May be next time, I may stay elsewhere, but religiously go for food to Elite.

Room Tip: opt for appropriate floor & location within floor
