Modern high rise hotel next to beach

Posted 3-Oct-2014
Pros: Dining staff very attentive and friendly.
Cons: Ongoing work areas should be closed or cordoned off.
Location: Located on beach front with kids fun park
Good looking hotel within a two minute walk to beach and kids fun park. No safe in room. Wifi very slow and only available in lobby and ground floor dining area. On arrival ( sept.2014) carpet on seventh floor, where we we given room,was in process of being changed and took two days to complete. Ongoing deep cleaning of marble floor in lobby and approach to dining area.

This place is awesome!!!

Posted 21-May-2012
Pros: Views, room amenities
Cons: When vacancy rate is low you have to ask the front desk to warm up the water for a shower
Location: Typical Kollam. Huge fishing community, lots of history (Fort Thomas ruins, Lighthouse).
When you are in this hotel, you feel like you are in a different world outside of Kollam because there is just nothing quite like the high standard and service of any amenity in Kollam like the beach hotel. Some hotel staff don't speak fluent english so you just have to be a little patient. The rooms, the views of this hotel put some hotels the world over to shame - also because of the ridiculosly cheap price (compared to $AUD). The hotel itself takes on different names with locals which is good to know if travelling by Rickshaw or Taxi to let them know where you want to go. The various names it goes by is "Orchid Hotel", "Beach Hotel" or "Kollam Hotel". The food is FANTASTIC!!! 5 star dining. The only downside I found was that when the vacancy rate drops, they tend to not turn on the boiler for hot showers so you sometimes have to call the front desk to ask them to turn the hot water on about 15 mins before you have a shower. The hotel has it's own generator during power outages which is good, sometimes you may notice the power gets cut for a couple of seconds before the generator kicks in. I'm definitely coming back here next time I'm in Kollam!!! Highly recommended to all travellers!!!

The Quilon Beach Hotel and Convention Center

Posted 20-Mar-2012 on Hotels.com
My husband and I had a most satisfying stay at this beachside hotel. We were there from 14/3 - 17/3/12. We had a good view of the beach from our room on the 7th floor. The room and toilet were very clean and service was exceptional. All staff at the reception and the service personnel at the Black Gold Cafe were friendly, efficient and greeted us each time they saw us. The cafe offered a good selection of items for breakfast and a good spread of local and western dishes for their dinner buffet which left us very pleased. There was also a 24hr cafe and another restaurant which served authentic Keralan dishes which unfortunately we never got to try this time around. What impressed us even more was the speed in which action was taken by our Guest Relations Exec to rectify some minor matters which we raised soon after we checked-in. We would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a hassle free stay with good food, clean rooms and warm and friendly staff. We hope to be back with our children in the near future.

Good hotel right on beach - but you probably wouldn't want to stay more than a night or two

Comfortable but not delighted

Posted 16-Jan-2010
SERVICE The staff were extremely courteous to my girlfriend and I. They went out of their way to assist us with our questions about the surrounding area and with our plans outside of our stay at the hotel. I would rate the service very highly. THE HOTEL We expected an immaculate hotel. Whilst our room was very nice and well maintained we found the public areas of the hotel less welcoming and relaxing. The Ayurvedic Centre was particularly disappointing; after a quick look there was no way we'd have treatments there. And the bar that we expected was not even open for business. LOCATION The hotel has a decent location for Kollam. It's a short walk to the 'centre' on the city. And it is located right on the beachfront. For any Western travellers, however, this is not a beach where a female can feel relaxed as there are a great deal of local men providing unwanted attention. OVERALL If you're looking for an immaculate hotel, where you can relax on the beach and wine and dine the evening away this is not it. For those looking for a relatively comfortable base to explore Kollam (2 days max) then the Beach Orchid would be a decent choice.

Location: varkala plus au sud, kollam ne présente aucun intérêt touristique
une piscine non praticable d'une eau verte non filtrée, le bord du bassin était également impraticable car couvert de fientes de corbeaux qui partagent cet espace avec les clients sans que le personnel de l'hôtel n'intervienne du personnel ne pratiquant pas assez l'anglais ce qui rend les demandes du client difficiles à comprendre et nécessite beaucoup de répétitions.
