“At Priya's”
Reviewed 19 August 2011

Stayed 4 nights..Elegant old house ( 75 years old approx) Priya & her mum are very nice hosts..room is very nice & spacious (mix of antic furniture ) nice garden..all is VERY clean. Food is basic Indian ..fish,vegetables etc.. & if you want anything special just ask Priya.Town center is at 7 mtes with a rickshaw, Priya can book Ayureveda treatments for you too & gave me some good tips e.g...trip on the backwaters for Rs10 ! ( normal ferry ) which was super..3 hours cruise !

We were referred to this wonderful place by a friend and I wanted to stay there during my family trip to Kerala.Right from day one when we landed at this place,we were received cordially and made to feel at home at once.Ms.Priya (the owner),her mother and Pachu (her son) were very well mannered and excellent people.My kids immediately hit it off with Pachu and they made a good friend in him.Ms.Priya further helped us with our travel to Munnar and to Kumarakom.She even advised us on fares and prices so that we do not end up overspending.The dishes provided to us were authentic kerala fare that we so thoroughly enjoyed,as her mom was an excellent cook.I would suggest this place to stay for all people inyending to visit kerala.My kids and wife keep perstering me to plan another trip to this place which is another home away from home.All our best wishes to Ms.Priya & her family! Thank you again!

As kids we always looked forward to the holiday season where we get to go to our grandma's place far far away. Once there, we will be treated to great food, new friends and a lot relaxing experience. We climb trees, jump walls and jump in the river with no one to stop us. This is exactly what we felt when we landed up in Kanjirakattu. We never felt we were with strangers nor did we feel that we were in a home stay. It was like visiting our cousin after a long time in a far off place. We were treated to sumptuous authentic home made food and a great place to stay. We never like to stay in hotels because of the choice of food. Its the same menu almost anywhere in India. We wanted to experience local cuisine and nothing that beats home made food. Priya and her family are fantastic hosts. We couldn't ask for more. The house is beautiful and the place is clean and safe. Trust me, this is the best place to stay in Kottayam and we are definitely coming back with our parents.

As this was our first trip to India we decided to opt for the Homestay experience. We were extremely pleased with our choice. Priya and her family could not have been more attentive. We told them where we wanted to go and they advised us the best ways to get there- resulting in the chance to try out all the various modes of transport. They served up a range of Keralan dishes at mealtimes which were both nutritious and tasty. We were even invited to join the family in their Vishu meal celebrations eating from banana leaves.
The property is within easy reach of the backwaters, Kukarom bird sanctuary, Periyar wildlife sanctuary. Its a bit of a drag to get to Munnar so if you fancy visiting there you would be better to book a few days somewhere closer. We also found that return trains from Kochi were scarce so we ended up missing our last night at Kottayam in favour of a night in Kochi. All in all though- if its hospitality you are looking for you cant go wrong.

I had a very memorable stay at the Kanjirakkattu Heritage Home - Pryia and her family were very welcoming and I had the honour to celebrate Onam with them. Memories I will always remember! Thank you very much!
