I should admit that this part of South India looked clean and green. The air was fresh and I took deep breath to enliven my senses. When we walked outside, we saw a few auto rickshaw drivers approaching us hurriedly. They competed with each other asking for our destination when we stood watching them like a prey ready to be grabbed. After some time, we saw them reach a consensus and one of them guided us to his vehicle to travel us to the hotel.
We reached the Hotel Blue Nile, Kannur, Kerala within four minutes as it was just about one kilometer from the station. Located on SN Park Road, the hotel offered four-star accommodation facility and is regarded as a business and leisure hotel in Kannur. This six-storey building offered easy accessibility to many attractions in the city.
We were welcomed at the entrance and ushered to the reception area, which was well-designed with wooden panels and furnished with matching fabric. There was a giant painting on the wall, which looked like modern art. Marvelously designed and colored pottery, big kuttuvilakku and big and small flower vases adorned the place beautifully.
The hotel offered Deluxe Rooms, Suites and Club Suites to guests. I had booked a deluxe room through the budget hotels app, which offered me a discount. The check-in took only a few minutes and we were helped by a hotel staff to carry our bags to our room.
The double room looked well-furnished with wooden interiors. On the wooden wall there were photographs of paintings and designer lamps, which gave a rich look. The large window was etched with glass and draped with beautiful curtains. The window offered the beautiful view of the street and the greenery.
The twin beds with comfy mattresses added to the intimacy. The Hotel Blue Nile of Kannur offered other facilities such as air conditioning, ironing board, laundry service, 24-hour room service, wakeup service, doctor on call, concierge service, and so on.
Being a foodie, I was curious about the food at the hotel. There is a multi-cuisine restaurant, Copper Chimney, which offered a variety of local and other national and international dishes. There is also a 24-hour coffee shop, Canopy and an ice cream parlor, Igloo for snacks and desserts.
