Beautiful looking hotel but very unhelpful desk staff. Almost no English spoken. Asked for laundry service - none. Advice re how to get to bird sanctuary - very reluctant to help. Tv never worked. Meals there are bought in from local restaurants - we ate at Paddy a kilometer up the road And saw Tharavadu staff there to collect meals...

I was visiting Kumarakom to take my family for the houseboat experience. But we planned to stay the night at Tharavadu Heritage Home for the night. It was raining and we got two rooms side by side. It was a pleasant experience to sit outside the room enjoying the rain at night. Though it looks simple at the first view,...

Positives : heritage look. Good location. Negatives : 1. Ambience: The staff is not bothered nor for their customers nor seen, except for one old person , Mr . Parmeswaran who is loveable and constantly on his toes despite his age. 2 . Food : we got cold breakfast on the first day and tea was served after 1.5 hrs...

Stay is good but it is a kind of average hotel with lack of amenities. But the hotel is very near to all the Boat Jetty. Where you can rent any kind of Boats and see through places as per your wish. Food is provided based on your need and it is average.

So, after much research we finally selected the Tharavadu Heritage home. What caught my attention were the beautiful pictures of the place. I did read the reviews and the only con about it was that it was just...

Tharavadu Heritage home is perfectly located. Across the road is the boat jetty. The stay is wonderful. Food is awesome. Their Duck mapas is one of the best I ever had. There are some complaints about 4 am Bhajan from a near by temple. But that is not very disturbing.
