The position of this hotel is beautiful, right on the water. But, the hotel itself is very run down and in need of TLC. The Wifi only worked in the lobby. The pool was not clean. We had to ask for various items and the manager, who seemed to do everything to helping with baggage, delivery to rooms and in...

I had an excellent 1 day stay here recently . Some of the pros for the hotel : Excellent view from the room Courteous hotel staff Good food preparation Situated right beside a backwater channel and within 500m of the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary Some areas for improvement: More menu options Better in-room amenities in the room like newer TV's

Stay at Manor Back Water Resort added an extra excitement to our memories. The location is nice, so is the property. The rooms are neat and very spacious with decent interior walls. We enjoyed our symptoms meals with the broad back water view amist a pleasing environment all around. The stay was worth the expense.

We stayed here on last day of our 6 days Kerala trip. We were pretty excited about kumarakom and Manor backwaters from the reviews We got from TripAdvisor and friends. We were disappointed since the property is not located on the proper backwaters. Further, the hotel owners have not maintained the property well. Talking about room, it was pale and...

We (2 adult+2 children) stayed at this resort for 2 days from 14th Jan to 16th Jan 17. Was booked by a travel agent as part of a package, so no issues while booking. Resort is centrally located & is only around 200meters from the main road (this approach road was quite badly maintained though). Boating pick-up point is available...

With reference to above comment, management wishes to state that almost all most all the guests on 26 Dec. were satisfied with the service and several have given positive comments in their feedback. The hot water issue was due to some technical problems which has since been rectified.

This hotel is a good property at a good location. Bird sanctuary is just a km away. We loved walking back from the sanctuary to hotel. Boating too is nearby. However this hotel needs maintenance. Decent view of backwater. Food is average. Staff is helpful. Hot water is a problem and we had to followup many a times.
