        Not upto the mark ”

        Location is good. Inhouse hotel also good. Rooms not upto the mark. Lights were not functioning properly. One room had coffee and tea maker. One didn't. Rooms were not properly lit. Yellow lights made the room look too dark . Rooms need better room freshener. Was smelling too damp. Staff are good.

        Poor room, AC not working”

        As above. When it's hot and one pays for an AC room it's unacceptable. The hotel exterior is rough, front desk staff were friendly and helpful but that didn't make up for the room. 2 single beds having booked as a single traveller is lazy. The bathroom had seen better days. In my opinion a waste of money and a low grade 2 star hotel.

        Summary of hotel ”

        Clean towels daily. Good hot and cold running water in the shower. House keeping staff polite and efficient.

        Stay was okay but unfortunately, there were insects in the room. A bug was found running on the mattress while we were trying to sleep. Got bitten by insects while staying in the room. Bedding can be improved (better mattress). Good location because of shopping centers near by but passing train whistles were loud and could be heard in the room.

        location. clean quiet

        There was no information about Thrissur, no map. Thr room was clean and comfirtable but they are not catering for people interested in culture which is why most wesrerners go to Thrissur. Nothing wrong with the hotel , just not for me.
