Located just adjacent to the Jetty house and easily approachable. Backwaters are very close by. The ambiance and the garden were good. A bit lag in maintenance. Recommended for all sort of travelers. Overall good experience.

Nice place, the estate area is not too huge. However rooms are spacious, good food options, Helpful staff and a beautiful temple adjacent, only apart by a canal which occasionally has boats floating past. Very close to the backwaters as well. Spent a night there with my family, had booked 3 rooms. Woke up in the morning with pleasant music...

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.
