Its a simple hotel, is clean, provides a good service. Its not actually close to the beach, a bit of a walking distance. Restaurants close at around 9:00 pm. Tried their breakfast, its mostly catered for non-Indian palate, which is fine. The Wi-Fi is steady, not high speed but good enough. Accessibility is only in the lobby and pool area....

After 4 weeks travelling around India, the Deshadan was a good place to chill. Rooms are pleasant, a/c & fan. Breakfasts were good, staff were cheerful & always helpful. My only adverse comment, is the swimming pool needs some TLC. I stupidly left a pair of walking boots in the taxi at Cochin Airport. I rang up the hotel, the...

Restaurant was fine, although we only had breakfast there, eating lunch and dinner down by the cliff where there were plenty of restaurants with sea views. The staff were...

Just spent another 15 night stay at the Deshadan, we have been coming for several years now and will be back again next year. This small friendly hotel is a real joy, set just 5 mins walk back from the cliff top in a quiet area. Big thanks to everyone.
