The hotel itself provides a good, minimum standard of service. The room was clean, tidy and spacious and the best feature of our time in the hotel. The bathroom was a bit dirty when we arrived but very good shower. The hotel is located centrally in Kumily which is good, but the main attraction is the wildlife reserve, and after...

The services of hotel are no satisfactory. Hot water in tap comes from 5 to 10 am/pm that means if you reach the hotel at 12 and want to get fresh u have to use cold water. Food was not good. Room service was not good. Staff is also not corporative

Excellent place for food - especially if you are looking for Kerala style meals with fish curry. Basically a place for non - vegetarians. Go only for local cuisine and not for Chinese food they offer. Preferably go between 12.30 and 1.00 for lunch. For dinner, the restaurant is not very crowded.
