wonderful ambience

Posted Jul 25, 2016
Pros: Ambience, location, and quiet restful atmosphere.
Cons: The quality of food served.
Location: Liked the location and since we had gone there just to get away from the day to day activity,the things to do nearby was of not much importance.
Excepting for the restaurant which doles out just tolerable food, the rest of the place is great. The Coffee shop is there just for names sake and has hardly any menu. The staff were courteous but needs to be trained much more to reach good standards.

Great location but disappointing service!

Posted Apr 18, 2016
Though the location is great and has lot of greenery around the hotel. The service level however is terrible. Staff seem to be running around but dont know for what. Things requested take a lot of time to be served.

If you want to experience faulty towers india!

Posted Jan 17, 2015
Pros: Grand old building, could be really nice.
Cons: Everything, staff interaction, decor, clenliness, quality of food,.
Location: This hotel is a long way from anywhere, hotel charges extra to book a taxi.
Wow, once of the worst places I've stayed, unwelcoming staff that stare at you or walk away. Toilet ran all night in our room asked for it to be fixed so next day no flush at all lucky there was a bucket in the bathroom! Long way from the centre of the action - lift only goes up in the building we stayed in. Restaurant was strange to say the least!!!! Was cheep that's the only positive!

public sector woes

Posted Jan 12, 2015
Pros: the historic building and location
Cons: everything.
Although a very good property, the management is poor. The staff is disinterested, and therefore service is poor. Mosquitoes are a big nuisance, making it impossible to sit out in open. The surroundings of the island are not clean, leading to the problem. Our plants left outside were taken away. The breakfast was cold.

Excellent Location. Good Service.

Posted Jan 6, 2015
Pros: Location.
I stayed here for a night and overall it was a pleasant experience. Rooms were clean and good. Their lake facing rooms were like tree house and well located for a nice view to the backwaters. Staffs were friendly and service was good.

Mosquito bitten stay & apathy by staff - bolgatty

Posted Jan 2, 2015
Pros: Location was excellent
Cons: Everything - they should run it as a resort and not govt guest house
Had a terrible experience of apathy by staff at bolgatty resort. Mosquitoes day and night in your room. booked for lake view which was not provided. Had no other choice as I had paid in full during booking -my mistake. menu was same for 4 days at breakfast. Would not like to go there again.
