“Nice experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2012

I visited this hotel in August, 2011 with my family. The rooms are very spacious and well maintained. Since, the guests were less, the food was prepared as per our order and the quality of the food was really very nice. We loved it a lot. My little son also loved this place. The breakfast was also delicious and the service was also very nice. Overall, a lovely hotel with lovely view in the background of the rooms...

The stay at this resort literally ruined our honeymoon...The room service was terrible. We had to request even for a glass of water. There was NO POWER the entire night and we had to sleep in the dark. We came to know that the food that was being served in the hotel was actually purchased from outside c-class shops. So we preferred having food from the outside.
We skipped the complimentary breakfast too.


No security : Felt very insecure here. The only person who was awake at night was the so-called receptionist , a skinny lad (about 17-18 yrs of age) , who also appeared very unfriendly.
The power outage at night just added to the insecurity.

There was no Drivers room and our Driver had to sleep in the cab itself.

PATHETIC is the word that I would like to use to describe this place.

We drove down from Mysore for the weekend and we just loved the resort.We felt like we had been sent back time on looking at the hotel design and we were amazed the variety of massage and boating options.We loved our Saturday evening when we asked for a candle light dinner and the kids were kept entertained by the courteous staff at Manor .The cuisine lacked variety but we found all the items ordered to be great tasting.We especially loved the Kerala puttu and Karimeen !Overall a great place to unwind and rejuvinate..

Room Tip: The waterfront rooms have an amazing view!!

Staying in this resort was our worst experience ever, we had been informed and booked it as a 4-star property but our experience was shocking. As we reached this resort found it empty hardly 2-3 staff and no guests seen. The resort was going under renovation and coloring. We thought that other guests might have gone for sightseeing but later discovered that there were no other guests staying there.

We reached there at 2 pm but no lunch facility was available. The swimming pool water was sticky and oily and we even made complaint to hotel manager and our tour operator. We had dinner and breakfast in package for which they took the order and prepared as there were no other guests in the hotel. Both menu were very limited.

Property location is good but isolated and no facility and no maintenance. Further you wont see much staff, no housekeeping, room services number working. For everything you need to go to reception.

Overall a very horrible experience for which we even complaint to hotel and our tour operator.

Thanks for suggesting us this resort.The place is beautiful with the serene beauty of the backwater and the view is simply blissful with calm atmosphere.The rooms were extremely spacious (huge), tastefully decorated with rich paintings and traditional furniture .The overall design of the resort gives you a very traditional feeling . The service was excellent and the staff were extremely helpful.
The food was good .All in all excellent in all respects and definitely value for money.
