This lighthouse is good place to see surroundings (like London Eye in London or Shard or Burj Khalifa in Dubai :)), but do not expect anything grandiose. It is lighthouse in Alappuzha, which is quite small town.

No. It will be very difficult for senior citizens to go up the stairs.

It closes at sunset, so the actual time varies slightly over the year. Getting in by 1730 should leave you plenty of time to climb up to the top and enjoy the view!
