The hotel itself is quite secluded from everything, so you'd have to rely on transport to get around/to shops or restaurants. You can walk out of the hotel, turn left, go across the bridge, down the street and turn right onto a little street with some shops (but not much there) I don't think are any rooms in the club house itself. Our room was a little "cottage" (last one on a block of about 10) across the road from the main building. The road between the main building and the cottages is a thoroughfare for the public, so it can be quite loud at times, and doesn't feel very safe (I didn't anyway) Check in was a little odd/disorganised...the Manager photocopied our passports, asked us if we needed our E-Visas back (?!) and then was really surprised when we said "Yes please". He then managed to photocopy the wrong parts of our passport and called our room asking us to bring them back/he can send someone to collect them. We weren't comfortable with someone collecting them, so took them down ourselves along with the huge form we'd been asked to complete (1 form each) Room: The rooms, whilst very tired, were clean and spacious. The room is split into 2 parts - the front section has a small dining table and looks onto the road and the back is the bedroom and en suite. The upper windows in the front section cannot be closed, so annoyingly noise and mosquitoes will find their way in. There is a curtain to separate the two sections. There is a TV, air con, tea making facilities and a fridge in the room. Please note there is no iron, hairdryer or wifi. Whilst a lack of wifi wouldn't normally be a problem for us, we really struggled here because there was absolutely nothing else to do (apart from read our books - which after 2 days can make you stir crazy) The cottages are attached to others and because the walls are very thin and the windows aren't double glazed, you'll hear a lot of noise. Please note you'll receive a call every morning at 7.30 asking if you'd like tea. You'll then get another call at 9am asking if you're coming for breakfast. Whilst I understand that they're trying to be attentive, I found this to be quite annoying and wish they'd just ask us our preference at check in. Restaurant: During check in the Manager made a point of advising us that there was a dress code for males when entering the "club" and for dinner (this is also on the notice board in the rooms) of a long sleeved shirt, shoes and trousers. Luckily my boyfriend had this packed so wore this to dinner. We came down to dinner 30 minutes early and asked if there was a bar/a communal room we could have some drinks in (non-alcoholic would be fine) before eating, but were advised this wasn't available. Dinner was a buffet of some Keralan food, which was satisfactory but not amazing. We asked for cold bottled water and were told this wasn't available - only room temp was available. We felt extremely uncomfortable during dinner...we were the only people in the "dining room" (which resembled a tiny community hall - best way I can describe it) at any given time we had 4 staff members just staring at us eating. They kept walking in and out just to gawp at us. During the last course other guests (all domestic tourists, we seemed to be the only international guests staying) started to arrive and to our annoyance we realised no other male had abided by the dress code and this wasn't enforced at all. They were wearing shorts, t-shirts and flip flops, so this only added to making us feel more uncomfortable. Whilst we weren't expecting anything it's worth noting that this seemed to be the only hotel in the area that didn't have anything planned for Christmas (we were there for Christmas Eve and left on Christmas Day) Overall the staff are friendly and the place is clean, but it's not somewhere we'd choose to stay again.
