KTDC is not providing good service in Kochi, nothing to see there. No customers available so whatever package is listed, nothing is available. Expensive package and not at all exciting experience. Located in very nice environment but hotel cannot handle more customers at a time. Service is very poor, less people can handle customer request. They are struggling to provide...

The hotel is a transformed old governor's palace, we had a really huge and comfortable room in the old main biuilding. The hotel is on a green island with beautiful trees and sights on old Kochin. The restaurant we found to be rather modest, the dinner buffet was below Indian standards by choice and taste. The site is quite far...

Tucked away in one corner of the city amongst the river lies the hotel, Balagaty Palace. Looking from outside, it looks like a Kerala house with a nice lawn. Its only once you go in that you get a feel of the hotel. Designed to give the guests the feel of living in a Kerala house the ambience is great....

We had great expectations that were not met. The location is fantastic and the hotel has great potential but it needs a serious shake up. The beautiful grounds were full of litter and badly kept.
