“KTDC Motel Aaram, Punalur - Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

Me and my wife were on a personal trip to Punalur to attend a marriage. We checked in at 24th and check out on 26th December, 2013. While making the booking I was not sure how about this property and would be our stay. But once we reached their it exceeded our expectation.

Hotel is just 2 kms away from Punalur hanging bridge enroute to Thenmala at Kalayanadu. The hotel is very clean and tidy. Bathrooms are very neat and clean, hot water is available round the clock. Air conditioning is working super. The properly is very safe for the families who is on travel. The opposite side of the motel is a Beer parlour run by the KTDC itself but not at all an hindrance to those who are staying . Very good ambience . The staff is very friendly. I would refer Avinash who took care of us nicely. Indeed Very good food. It absolutely seems homely food and no gimmick of hotel food at all. They need bit time for preparing the food , say 30-40 minutes maximum. You can place your order well in advance and ensure the timely food. We really enjoyed our stay . A great property run by Kerala Tourism.

Room Tip: All the four rooms are on the same row in ground floor. All rooms are good.

This hotel is few kilometers from Punalur towards Thenmala. This is a basic no frills property and is really a motel than a hotel. Its worth staying for a night. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the room was okay for a night's stay. The A/C and the hot water did work and the room was clean but with a string smell of cleaning lotion. The food was good and is only prepared on order so allow a minimum of 60 minutes. Overall OK stay and did exceed our expectations.
